Werribee got back into the winning spirit with a 90-72 victory over Brunswick in the Bowls Victoria division 1 at Watton Street on Saturday.

The Bees were keen to bounce back after failing to snare a single point against Fitzroy Victoria a week earlier and did so in fine fashion, three rinks to one.

They endured a first-half struggle before rallying in the second to emerge with a comfortable win.

Fresh from a week out, Rob Smith was the standout for Werribee. Smith bowled beautifully to be the star of his rink, which won 26-10.

Ian Milledge escaped with a narrow 21-20 win, while Colin Thompson was victorious 24-20. Peter Yasser’s 22-19 loss did not effect the overall result.

Fifth-placed Werribee has a tough away fixture against top two side Glenroy this Saturday.

In division 2, Hoppers lost ground to top side Altona Sports, losing the top-of-the-ladder bout 95-70.
