LOCAL SPORT Big effort by bowlers
WITH the third game under their
belt and two previous losses, Waikerie's
division one pennant bowlers came
away with a resounding win against
Lyrup last Wednesday.
Judy Strauss, Lorna Kahl, Jan Gaeta and
Wendy King had a great start against Ros
Smith's rink, scoring on seven out of the
first 10 ends to be well up at the break, 11-3.
They went on to win six of the next 10
ends, including a four on the 12th end to run
out winners, 24-10.
Nancy Teasdale, John Mortimer, Lorraine
Watkins and Gail Pursche met Sue Lloyd's
They lost a four on the first end and a
single after that to be 5-0 down, but made up
for it after that, winning seven of the next
eight ends to be up at the break, 11-7.
The four went on to score well in the
second half, bringing the score up to win
Dawn Boehm, Barb Taylor, Liz Thompson
and Carol Pennyfield drew Nora Burns's
rink and had a slower start, with a much
more even first half, but was up by one shot
at the break, 10-9. The ladies went on to win
six of the last 10 ends, including a four on
the 17th end.
Despite the opposition gaining two fours
in the last few ends, Boehm's lead was too
great, and her side went on to win by four
The final score saw Waikerie win 68-42.
Wednesday morning pennants are at
Waikerie again this week, with the home side
hosting Renmark in first division.
Second division did not fare as well,
but it was a close game against Renmark
RSL, as it could have gone either way over
the last few ends. Ronda Cain, Ev Morgan,
Lucy Gillespie and Joan Miller were the only
winners, defeating Diana Van Dam.
After a weak first half, the ladies made up
for it later, gathering several multiple scores
to win by five shots, 17-12.
Henry Mortimer, Kevin Gillespie, Joan
Carter and Edna Pfitzner played against
Lorraine Pinyon's rink. This game was much
closer, with the Waikerie rink going into the
last end one shot up, 18-17, then losing a three
to go down by two.
Nina Dellazoppa, Joan Tilley, Denise
Thompson and Dawn Pursche drew Willy
Weidenhofer's four and had an even more
difficult game against that rink.
However, the scores remained close, with
the ladies going down by only six shots, 12-18.
Renmark RSL took home the win, 50-47.
Club news: The semi-final of the
championship pairs was played last
Thursday between Judy Strauss and Gail
Pursche and Ronda Cain and Barb Taylor. A
close game ensued, with it coming down to
the final end when Strauss and Pursche were
up by one shot and picked up three more to
win by four shots, 13-9.
The other game saw Lorraine Watkins
and Carol Pennyfield defeat Joan Tilley and
Strauss and Pursche will take on Watkins
and Pennyfield in the final match tomorrow.
Meanwhile the singles championship
will start soon, with notices currently up in

its impressive start to
the Riverland's Saturday
pennant bowls season with
wins in all four divisions last
First division: A good effort
against one of the powerhouse
sides, Renmark, 85-69.
The Gary Pursche rink, with
Brian Burnett, Chris Grieger
and Grant Frahm, set up the
day for Waikerie by accounting
for John Thompson's side in
emphatic style, leading all day to
run out the winners, 25-8.
Despite last week's loss, this
is set to be the powerhouse rink,
especially on the home greens.
Roger Davies and his four
toughed it out all day and, after
trailing Steve Ivanovic for much
of the day, hit the lead on the 18th
end to hold on for a 21-18 win.
Wayne Collins's side looked
to be in control for the majority
of the game against Bill Dopson,
leading 17-11 after 18 ends, only
to drop eight shots to go down
Dixie Lee's rink saw the
escape of the day. Starting
disastrously, and looking down
the barrel of a thrashing, the
side trailed 2-15 after eight ends
to Sean Leesue. This would have
meant certain defeat for the team
However, the side rallied
in and finished with a flurry,
holding a game-winning shot
on the last end. A great bowl by
Renmark's Rick Stoeckel saved
the day for them, defeating Lee's
While the start is better than
in recent seasons, work is still
needed. This week first division
will host Loxton RSL in what will
be another big game.
Second division: There
was a bit of reshuffling, but an
equally impressive result over
Barmera, 66- 46.
Grant Hall had a 28-12 win,
with his new-look outfit of
Robert Pickett, Rom Barratt
and Graham Lloyd.
Tim Strauss led his rink to a
solid win, starting the day well
and suffering a minor collapse
in the later stages of the game
before rallying to win 24-15.
Bill Haby dropped four shots
on the first two ends.
At one stage he closed the gap
to one shot, but was unable to
gain the lead, going down 14-19.
This week second division
players travel to Loxton for what
will be a big test.
Third division: A good
victory over Moorook, 57-51.
Another big performance from
Brian Oliver saw his rink win
16 of the 21 ends to record a 24-7
Fred King had a big scare
with his rink being behind for
much of the day, but pulled off a
big finish to collect six shots on
the final three ends and get up by
one shot, 18-17.
Neville Taylor's side got away
to a good start, but was outbowled
by some excellent work from its
Moorook opponents and finished
up losing 15-28. Third division
is at home against Loxton this
Fourth division: A n
impressive win over Renmark
at Renmark, 64-51.
Merv Rolton and his ladies
showed talent, winning again
by a big margin, 27-11, and at one
stage winning 11 ends in a row.
Rob Neideck and his crew of
Leo Kahl, Bob Ebert and Max
Thompson led all day to win 19-
12. Mike Schumann led until the
16th end, only to suffer a major
collapse over the final ends,
going down 18-28.

travel to Berri this week and
