CITY of Echuca Bowls Club has a lot to crow about — even if results don’t go its way in the grand finals.

The club has six teams in Friday and Sunday’s last tests — a huge achievement for a single club.

Competing in the midweek pennant grand finals will be City of Echuca’s division one and three sides.

And in the weekend pennant divisions one, two, three and five all won on Sunday to progress to the final task.

This means the club has the chance to win both division one titles, a massive accomplishment if it is done.

The midweek side will face Moama at Deniliquin RSL’s greens in its grand final, while the weekend pennant final will be played at City of Echuca, also against Moama.

City of Echuca’s opponents, Moama, also had a season to remember.

Moama was the out and out winner of the midweek pennant’s normal season — 23 points ahead of City of Echuca White. And in the weekend pennant’s normal season the side was similarly dominant, losing only twice.
