SOUTH Perth Bowling Club’s midweek pennant sides continued their recent good form, though Saturday sides failed to impress in the penultimate round of fixtures.
Midweek One White scored a 79-48 (6-0) whitewash at Morley, and now sit half-a-point behind division leaders Sorrento, who look to have automatic promotion within their grasp.
Two White accounted for Dalkeith-Nedlands at home, 64-56 (5-1) and will now play for the second division pennant after their main rival, Como, suffered a surprise loss at Manning.
Four Blue made it five wins on the trot, also hosting Dalkeith-Nedlands and scoring an 86-59 (5-1) victory.
A win this week would keep their finals hopes alive, though a favourable result in the Yokine versus Nollamara fixture is essential.
The combined South Perth and Como side suffered an away loss to Bassendean, 29-41 (0-4), but remain in playoff contention.
The Saturday Premier League side lost another home Friday night fixture, this time to Kardinya 71-81 (2-6). Stirling’s defeat of Wanneroo the following day means South Perth will escape relegation from top division.
One Blue North suffered another sizeable away loss, 57-94 (1-7) at Doubleview, and now must beat last-placed Osborne Park at home this week to avoid a relegation challenge match.
Four Blue travelled to Belmont and came up short, 59-78 (1-7). They host first-placed Rossmoyne this week, but will already be planning for a promotion tilt at Pickering Brook the following Saturday.
Friday Night Women’s Red finished their season with an 18-29 (0-4) defeat at the hands of Perth and Tattersalls.
Saturday Two Lime concluded their campaign with a tight away win at Mundaring, 38-37 (3-1) to finish the year in seventh place.
On Friday, South Perth premier league skipper Scott Walker was named in the WA state team which will travel to Darwin in May for the national sides series.
