RENMARK One scored a
12-1 win over Waikerie Black
Sox in an entertaining game of
Riverland baseball on Friday
Renmark One opened its match
in fine form, scoring three runs in
the first innings.
Renmark's starting pitcher
David Grenfell backed up his
side's strong batting performance
by keeping Waikerie to only three
safe hits in his three innings,
while also having four strike outs.
Renmark then piled on seven
more runs in its second inning,
increasing its lead.
The Black Sox rotated pitch-
ers throughout the night, trying
to give them valuable game time
Glen Schreiber, Damian Ste-
vens and Grant Van Rooyen all put
in valiant efforts on the mound
against the in-form Renmark bat-
They were not supported by the
defence behind them, except for
Barrows at second base, who made
two difficult catches until he left
the field injured. Wild throws and
errors at crucial times of the game
plagued Waikerie for the majority
of the night.
The Black Sox improved late
in the game and made some excit-
ing plays, such as Stevens on the
mound throwing out a runner at
first and van Rooyen's long throw
from centre field to throw out a
runner at home, denying a run.
There were safe hits for Waik-
erie from Ben Leahy, Damian
Stevens, Stefan Best, Gavin Wilson
and Ian Clarke.
However, Renmark was too
strong in all aspects of the game,
scoring 12 runs, clocking up seven
stolen bases and a putting in a
strong fielding performance.
Waikerie's next scheduled
home game is February 27, how-
ever there may yet be a double
header on February 20.
LOXTON division one
basletball team beat Waikerie
49-33 last week, thanks largely
to a blistering third quarter,
when the Supercats piled on
21 points to the Warriors nine.
Four Loxton players reached
double figures in points.
Waikerie's top scorer was new-
comer Nicolas Norca, a French
backpacker who racked up 17

rie hung on to beat a fast-finishing
Loxton side by a single point, 42-41.
Waikerie was 11 points up
with two minutes remaining and
subbed out star performer Hannah
Lehmann (14 points).
Loxton then made a late run
at the Warriors, and Jessie Miller
had a pressure-packed shot at the
top of the key to win the game, but
The win was set up in the
second quarter, when Waikerie
outscored Loxton 16-8. Loxton was
led by another strong performance
all night from Jackie Dahlitz.
Renmark trounced Barmera
by 37 points in the other game.
Renmark racked up 58 points, but
remarkably none of the Steamers
players reached double figures.

while Bronte Phillips defended
