The Warburton Bowls Club had a disappointing finish to the year in the final round before the holiday break.

However, all teams are confident of a more positive performance when games resume.

Unfortunately, once again, they had to forfeit the Weekend 6-a-side game against Burwood Districts due to lack of available players over the weekend.

The Weekend Warburton 1 side played Donvale 1 away and after a tight struggle went down 80 shots to 87.

Rink scores were as follows: C. Neale 14/ 21; A. Donohue 19/ 22; S. Lord 21/ 18 and P. Caneva 26/ 26. They play Bundoora RSL 2 at home on January 15th following the break.

The Warburton 2 team trailed all day in windy and difficult conditions against Chirnside Park 2 away before going down 58 shots to 87.

Rink scores were P. Summers 15/ 24; G. Lewis 15/ 17; G. Wynd 12/ 36 and M. Reynolds 16/ 10. The highlight was seeing Max Reynolds’ team come from 10 nil down at the break to win by 6 shots. A wonderful never -say -die effort!

The team next plays Ferntree Gully 3 at home on January 15th as they look to have an improved performance overall.

The Mid Week Warburton 1 side played Heathmont 2 away and suffered a big defeat 41 to 77.

Rink scores were S. Lord 15/ 25, G. Walsh 16/ 24 and R. McKail 10/ 28. They next play Mooroolbark 2 at home on January 11 determined to get back on the winning list.
