South Perth Bowling Club had mixed results as the season resumed in the New Year.

SOUTH Perth Bowling Club shared mixed results when the Bowls WA Metropolitan pennant season resumed from the Christmas break last Saturday.

The Premier League side travelled to Bassendean, and though competitive for most of the afternoon, lost by seven shots, 68-75 (2-6).

Best for the Millers was Danny Penman who recorded a ten shot win over the Justin Opie-skippered foursome.

One Blue North avenged their opening day loss to Quinns Rocks, 93-63 at home in an 8-0 whitewash.

As a result South Perth moved into third place on the ladder, overtaking Quinns by half of a point.

Four White faced the tough task of playing league-leading Forrestfield away.

Despite their best efforts, South Perth came back empty handed, suffering a 65-90 (0-8) clean sweep.

This Thursday the midweek competition resumes from the holiday break.

Three out of four sides are positioned inside the top four upon resumption, though One White will be without the services of the division’s best skipper, Scott Walker who will be in England playing in PBA events.

On Friday he will combine with Queensland’s Trentan Healey in the preliminary round of the World Indoor Pairs.

The following Wednesday he will face Englishman Mark Royal in the main draw of the World Indoor Pairs, the winner progressing to the last 16 of the event.
