No home ground advantage for Waikerie
THE Wednesday morning Riverland
pennant bowls competition was played
at Waikerie last week, with the home
team hosting Renmark.
A home ground advantage failed to
deliver wins, with all three first division
rinks going down to a strong Renmark side.

Judy Strauss, Lorna Kahl, Jan Gaeta and
Wendy King drew with Sandy Schultz's rink.

single shot in the first five ends.
They only scored another four shots in the
first 10 to be down at the break, 5-12.
No improvement came in the second half
of the game. Overall Strauss's four won six
ends of the 20 to go down 10-22.
Dawn Boehm, Barb Taylor, Liz Thompson
and Carol Pennyfield struggled to score
against Jocie Cooper's rink in the first half
of the game, being well down at the 10th
