It was one up and one down for our lady bowlers last week.

Division 1 went down to Moama 33 to 62 while Division 3 romped home over Deniliquin 50 to 35.

Results for the men were also mixed, with two wins and three losses in their clash with Moama.. 

Victory went to Division 3 (68 to 67) and Division 4 (71 to 66), but the other three teams all went down to Moama.

Congratulations to Beryl Murray and her team on their success in making the semi-finals of the State Fours.

The team will be back in action again on Sunday, so go along and give them your support.
