Sunbury came away with all 18 points thanks to a massive win against Flemington-Kensington in Bowls Victoria Pennant division 1, section 1.
After claiming all but one point the week before, Sunbury continued its good form on Saturday, winning 104 (18)-66 (0) at home.
Lee Wesley’s rink won 34-18, while Mark Cowan’s rink had a big win for a second straight week thanks to a 27-13 scoreline.
Carla Krizanic’s rink won 22-18 and Todd Trewarne’s rink came from behind to win 21-17.
Sunbury’s David Glennon said that for much of the day, it looked like the side would win only three rinks.
“Todd was down all game … in the second and third last rounds they picked up nine shots to hit the lead for the first time,” he said.
“It was a nice turnaround for Todd’s rink. They didn’t look like winning all day.”
Glennon said Lisa Trewarne and Paul Long, who were in Wesley’s rink, and Marc Bullows, who was in Cowan’s rink, were the day’s standouts.
The win and other results means Sunbury is up to second on the ladder, behind only undefeated Moonee Valley. Sunbury will get a first-hand look at Moonee Valley this weekend.
“We will see where we are at,” Glennon said. “If we could get a big win, we could move to top.”
Four of Sunbury’s six sides had wins on Saturday, including its third side, which won by 70 shots.
The women’s side lost mid-week to Werribee 63 (14)-49 (2).
