Results roundup for Bombala footy, golf, bowls

RUGBY LEAGUE

Group 16

The Bega Roosters have handed the Bombala Blue Heelers their biggest loss in two seasons.

The first grade Roosters scored a 48-10 win over the visiting Heelers in a game where captain-coach Scott Barton shone with a treble at the Bega Recreation Ground.

Barton opened the account for the Roosters before going on to post a further two tries in the 21st and 56th minutes of play.

John Parbery also had a blinder from the wing, scoring a double as the Roosters hammered the visitors.

Giving the Roosters even more reason to celebrate was a win in league-tag over the previously undefeated High Heelers.

After trailing 8-0 at the break, it was a Jacinta Dummett try before sister Aleesha scored a pair that sparked the win for the Bega Chicks 16-12.

The Roosters rounded out the scorecard with an 18-4 win in the reserve grade fixture.

Ricky Stapleton and James Grant tries in the first half laid the platform, while Bega's defence again proved rock solid with a clean sheet in the first half.

Lee Fuller and Bombala's Corey Patton scored in the second half.
