Saturday was the first round of the Dodt Cup (sponsored by the Bendigo Bank) with Rainbow, Kenilworth, Albert and Tin Can Bay going through to the semi-finals.

Rainbow and Albert played in the final.

There were high quality bowls played.

Albert lost the Singles but won the Pairs - both these games were close.

The outcome of who won the Cup came down to the final ends of the Fours.

Albert was two up on the card going in to the last end but Rainbow got two shots and an extra end had to be played.
