SOUTH Perth Bowling Club pennant teams enjoyed a resurgence last week, with most sides reversing their poor form from the previous round.
Thursday almost saw a midweek clean sweep, with only the combined South Perth and Como sixth division side missing out on the lion’s share of the spoils.
They were defeated 36-42 (1-3) away at Fremantle, but remain in finals contention.
One White reclaimed first place on the table, courtesy of a 63-49 (5-1) win at Mt Pleasant, and a favourable result in the Manning versus Gosnells fixture.
Two White consolidated second on the ladder, also accounting for Mt Pleasant, 65-47 (5.5-0.5).
Four Blue moved within one point of seventh placed Osborne Park by recording a 63-55 (5.5-0.5) win over cross-town rivals North Perth.
The Saturday Premier League side missed an opportunity to move further away from the relegation zone when they travelled to Wanneroo.
A 64-73 (2-6) loss closed the margin between the two sides to just 7.5 points.
This Friday, South Perth starts a run of three consecutive home night fixtures, with the action against Cambridge getting underway at 6.30pm.
One Blue North rebounded from last week’s poor showing to hold off a visiting Wanneroo side, recording a 78-64 (6-2) win and climbing back up to fourth on the table.
Four White remain in third place in their division, helped by an emphatic 109-66 (8-0) home triumph over Bullcreek AFA.
It was a good week for the women’s sides with both recording wins.
Friday Red division were successful 32-29 (3-1) over Scarborough at Innaloo.
Even closer though was the Saturday Two Lime result, with The Millers coming from a near-impossible position to record a 38-37 (3-1) home win over Thornlie.
