EFFORT: Clunes' division seven team lost the preliminary final on Saturday.

Clunes played against Daylesford Bowling Club in good conditions in the second week of finals.

The game was played in good weather conditions at Smeaton Bowls Club. Smeaton's dedication to turning out their green meant a close, hard game was expected. 

Three of the rinks were close games throughout the entirety of the afternoon of play. 

Clunes skippers Terry Kinnersly and Josh Polson's rinks each went down by the slim margin of one shot respectively.

Meanwhile, Laurie Judd's rink continued its good form with a strong, late finish which resulted in their prevailing with a six-shot win. 

But Daylesford had a strong win in their fourth rink, allowing them to win the game outright by 13-shots. 

Daylesford will play for the cup in the grand final match against Ballarat North next Saturday.
