GVBD division one preview | Round 11

By Tyler Maher

Euroa is calling out for a hero today and luckily for the Magpies they already have one in their midst.

Ken Sutcliffe sits fifth on the Goulburn Valley Bowls Division's top tier skip table and will look to steer his side to division one victory against Nagambie today.

The Magpies started the season like a bull out of a gate, but last tasted success on November 23.

A draw and four losses since then has seen Euroa drop from second to sixth on the ladder, 10 premiership points behind a finals spot with four weekend pennant rounds to play.

It means a clean-sweep win against the Lakers today is exactly what the Magpies will be after to set their campaign back on the right track.

East Shepparton hosts Hill Top at its Zurcas Lane facility and whichever outfit comes out on top will be in the box seat to finish in third spot.

The Hillbillies currently occupy that position, just one point ahead of East.

Kyabram can jump into the top four with a strong showing against Stanhope, but both sides are coming off confidence-boosting wins and will be keen to keep momentum rolling.

The other clash of round 11 was played last night between Shepparton Park and Shepparton Golf under the roof at Kialla Reserve.
