The Deniliquin Bowling Club ladies won their fourth division one Campaspe Valley Bowls Association pennant flag since 2001 on Friday.

The bowlers gritted out a nine-shot victory against arch rival and flag favourites City of Echuca at the Deniliquin RSL greens.

Deniliquin Bowling Club ladies secretary, Joy McArthur, who was part of the winning side, said some of the ladies were ‘‘still in disbelief’’ about the premiership win.

‘‘When it got to the point where we couldn’t lose it was a fantastic feeling,’’ a triumphant McArthur said.

The 13 winning players threw their arms in the air with jubilation once the final bowl was rolled. The strong local crowd also gave a big cheer.
