MOAMA bounced back from its second defeat of the Campaspe Valley Bowls Division weekend pennant season with a comfortable win against Rich River.

As the team fights to stay in touch with top-two sides Echuca and Deniliquin, it took two of three rinks in a big 97-58 result.

Klive Liverton’s rink did the majority of the damage with a whopping 30-shot win. Barry Brennan’s wasn’t too far behind either, also with a positive 39-22 result.

But across the river in Echuca it was a third straight win for the home side to remain on top of the division one ladder.

It took care of Mathoura 76-54, winning every rink for a clean sweep of the 16 competition points on offer.

Fresh off a run to the finals of CVBD State Pairs competition, Philip Thorn and Wayne Brooks took their rink in style, 29-16.

Tongala made it three wins in four games to continue its return to the form that saw it make last season’s grand final.

It was too strong for Deniliquin RSL, winning 81-54 with two of three rinks.

Steve Hammond’s rink was the pick of the bunch with a 35-10 win, and Barry Tinning’s also delivered with a 10-shot win.

Rounding out division one action, Deniliquin took the win against Rochester, 72-58 with two rinks.

In division two, Moama continued its sensational form with a 106-52 belting of Rich River.

Remarkably, the division two side has won 19 of 21 available rinks for the season, outscoring opponents by 261 shots in the process.

Lockington couldn’t stay with Rochester, falling 68-78 with its only winning rink coming by just one shot.

Echuca finished the round inside the top four with two of three rinks in a 72-69 win, while Tongala fell to Deniliquin 54-94.
