REIGNING premier South Bendigo has snapped its four-game losing streak and, in doing so, is back within seven points of the Bendigo premier division weekend pennant top four.
The Diggers gained the momentum late in their game against Kangaroo Flat on Saturday and stormed to the finish line to win 83-63 at home in the clash of last season's grand finalists.
In what was their first victory since January 8, the Diggers had three rinks up, with skippers Luke Hoskin (+7), Brad Holland (+7) and Daryl Rowley (+9) all winning.
* Bendigo did South Bendigo a huge favour with its upset win at home over Bendigo East.
The rejuvenated Bendigo - which has now won three of its past four following a 0-8 start - downed the fourth-placed Beasties 72-69.
The Beasties won three of the rinks, but it wasn't enough to cover the commanding 31-14 victory by Bendigo's Grant Woodward over Josh Moloney that secured the home side's win.
* Eaglehawk recorded its biggest win of the season with a thumping 41-shot belting at home over the inconsistent Castlemaine.
The Hawks bolted to a 90-49 victory to win by at least 38 shots for the third time in their past six games.
* And top side Moama staved off a challenge from a plucky Inglewood for the second time this season.
The Steamers won 87-75 to remain 28 points clear at the top of the ladder.
