IN Tuesday pennant both sides
were at home last week and both
recorded good wins.
Division 1 had a good win
against visitors Leongatha whilst
Division 2 also scored a win
against visitors Phillip Island.
The wins mean that our sides
will go into 2016 on top of their
respective ladders and we con-
gratulate them on their efforts.
The last matches before the
Christmas break will see Division
1 travelling to Foster whilst in a
change of venue Division 2 will
now stay at home hosting Wont-

On Saturday Division 2 contin-
ued on its winning way down at
Tarwin Lower with a comfortable
86 to 65 win.
Division 3 stayed home and
scraped home 72 to 67 against
Foster, a good result against the
second placed team.
Division 5 knocked visitors Co -
rinella off their top perch by win-
ning 92 to 63 and thus reclaimed
the lead in that division.
This week Division 2 will be at
home to Fish Creek, Division 3
go to Wonthaggi to meet top side
Wonthaggi Blue whilst Division 5
have a day off with a bye.
So five wins out of five this week
and four sides on top of their re-
spective Divisions - not a bad ef-
fort considering the limited num-
bers we have at our disposal.
Congratulations to all involved,
keep up the good work.
