Lawn Bowls – Loddon Mallee region finals
Our BSSC lawn bowls team narrowly missed qualifying for the SSV Finals after finishing runners-up in Thursday’s Loddon Mallee Region Finals. The team of Lochy Darroch, Liam Miller, and Liam Gill had four wins, a draw, and a loss in their six round-robin matches. One of their wins was against the eventual winners, Nathalia SC. Great effort boys.
