WAIKERIE'S first and
second division Wednesday
morning pennant bowlers
teams played away at
Barmera last Wednesday.
While the second division
came away with a win, the first
division is still struggling to find
Nancy Teasdale, John
Mortimer, Lorraine Watkins
and Gail Pursche drew Sheila
Lockwood's rink and had a
fantastic start, with 10 shots on
the first two ends, picking up a
seven on the second end to give
them a lead of 10-nil.
They went on to score well in
the first half of the game, going
into the break well up, 14-7.
Teasdale's four picked up
a four on the 11th end to give
them a huge lead, 18-7. The side
dropped a few ends toward the
finish, but its lead was too great
for the opposition to catch, and
they went on to win 27-20.
Dawn Boehm, Liz Thompson,
Carol Pennyfield and Barb
Taylor played against Carol
Shugg's four and they too
started off very well, winning
seven of the first 10 ends with
several multiple scores to be
well up at the break, 21-8.
The second half of the game
was not as strong and they only
won four of the 10 ends with
single shots, which allowed the
opposition to catch them a little.
However, they were able to
hold on to the lead and won by
five shots, 25-20.
Judy Strauss, Lorna Kahl,
Jan Gaeta and Wendy King
struggled the whole game
against Gloria Burns's four
despite good early scoring that
saw them up by four shots at the
fourth end, 6-2.
Strauss's four declined after
that and went on to win only
eight ends of the 20, dropping
three fours in the process to be
soundly defeated by 14 shots,
The final scores were
Barmera 66, Waikerie 64.
This morning the first
division plays away at Renmark
Second division had a much
better day with a good win over
the Barmera team.
Henry Mortimer, Kevin
Gillespie, Joan Carter and Edna
Pfiztner played against Anne
Macro's four, and they had the
biggest win with 15 ends scored
Nina Dellazoppa, Joan Tilley,
Denise Thompson and Dawn
Pursche drew Judy Vidorin's
rink and they too had a day out,
with great scoring and strong
performances to win by 12 shots,
Ronda Cain, Evelyn Morgan,
Lucy Gillespie and Joan Miller
had a closer game against Karin
Their scores were very even
throughout the game, going into
the last end 14-all.
Cain's four dropped a single
on that end to go down by one
shot, 14-15. The final scores were
Barmera 35, Waikerie 61.

IN what has to be considered an
improvement, Waikerie's first division
was within a whisker of pulling off
the unexpected --- beating Berri in
Riverland pennant bowls on Saturday.
The bowlers fell just short of their target,
going down 72-77.
Several changes were made to the line-up,
with Ken Dubrich, Nathan Cronin and Tim
Strauss coming into the side.
Gary Pursche's rink led the way for
Waikerie with an all-the-way win over Andy
It led 10-2 after only four ends of the
contest and, although the Berri side made
several charges, managed to run away with
a solid 28-8 win.
Dixie Lee's side also got away to a great
start against the formidable Mark Kubank
rink, leading 7-nil after four ends.
From then the contest was very close,
with the Waikerie side holding on to a lead
all game and, despite the Berri combination
winning five of the last six ends, held on in
a low-scoring game, 17-14.
The Roger Davies rink once again got
away to a horror start, down 14-1 after only
However, unlike last week, the bowlers
were unable to come back from the defecit.
On a positive note, the side never gave up,
winning six of the last seven ends but finally
going down 14-21.
Wayne Collins's side also had a bad start
up against the person many Riverlanders
consider to be the best, Dennis Treloar.
Down 14-2 after six ends, the Collins rink
fought out the remainder of the game, but
was unable to breach the Berri side's lead,
going down 13-24.
The first division has another away game
this week at Loxton, and will be looking to
get back on the winners list.
Second division: Another big scalp
for the top-of-the-table side, accounting for
the very strong Monash side on their home
Once again the club's depth is showing,
with four changes to the team. A great result,
Grant Hall and his team of Robert Pickett,
Rom Barratt and Graham Lloyd had a day
out, getting away to a solid start and pulling
away from their opposition as the day went
on, winning 29-16.
Bill Haby's side had a bad start, losing the
first six ends, but turned the game around
and lost only four more ends for the game,
defeating their opponents 22-16.
Peter Fechner took over the third rink
with the promotion of Tim Strauss. The side
managed to get to the lead early on 9-5 after
seven ends, and held on for a 23-19 win.
Third division: A good day for the
Waikerie side, winning at home 63-49 against
Fred King had a 25-16 win, John Mortimer
won 19-15 and Brian Oliver won 19-18.
The third side travels to Berri this week.
Fourth division: The team had a bye last
week and take on Loxton this week.
Club news: The club would like to wish
Richard 'Scotty' Law and his wife Libby all
the best in his new venture in the city.
He has been a great mover and shaker
for the Waikerie Bowling Club, and all of
the members would like to wish him and his
family well and a very big 'thank you'.
