his 50 years’
Tribute match for
Matthews’ 50 years
WAIKERIE cricketer Jon Matthews will
be honoured for his 50 years of service
to the Waikerie Gold Cricket Club with a
match dedicated to him this Saturday at the
Waikerie turf oval.
The day will begin at 10.30am and will involve
activities including bowling accuracy, biggest hit
and classic catch competitions, before the main
event of a T20 game with past players versus pres-
The day will be fully catered with a continuous
barbecue throughout the day, cold drinks and a
gourmet dinner available in the evening.
All past players, supporters and cricket enthu-
siasts are welcome to attend.
The club has a long list of past players travel-
ling back to Waikerie for the day.
On Australia Day, Matthews attended a func-
tion at the Adelaide Oval recognising cricket vol-
unteers from around the state where he received a
framed certificate and gold plated pin from Cricket
Australia for his 50 years of service to the game.
TRISTAN Geehman’s man of the
match performance helped Waikerie-
Ramco defeat Berri in the Riverland
A grade cricket game on the weekend.
Berri began well and took wickets at reg-
ular intervals to leave Waikerie 5/75 at tea.
Berri closed out Waikerie’s innings for
just 12 more runs to leave a modest total of
87 from 54 overs.
Kym Taylor top-scored with 25 runs and
Nathan Paschke made 17, while Tristan
Geehman made 11. Brad Rosenzweig took
5/24 to be the biggest threat.
Paschke started well, as did Geehman,
both taking early wickets to leave Berri 2/1.
Nathan Scadden and Rosenzweig worked
hard, but Scadden was dismissed for 13 just
before stumps as Berri ended day one at
3/26. Trussell and Rosenzweig combined
together to take the score to 4/57, before
Trussell was dismissed by Geehman.
This swung the match Waikerie’s way as
Geehman steamrolled Berri’s line up and
ended with 6/14 off 11.4 overs.
Mat McDonald also chipped in with 2/18
off 8 overs to help Berri finish 11 short of
victory. There was time left in the day so
stand in captain Tim Bevan decided an out-
right win was a chance.
Griffiths started on 13 and Stephen
Taylor on 12 to begin the innings strongly.
The runs started to flow when Bevan,
Chris Schutz and Taylor came to the crease.
Bevan and Schutz put on 35 in six overs
before Schutz went for 22.
Taylor and Bevan put on 51 in 26 balls to
set Berri a target of 136 in 110 minutes.
Bevan ended on 43 not out (four fours,
two sixes), while Taylor made 27 not out
(three fours, one six). Berri was surprised
by the rapid declaration at 3/125. Waikerie-
Ramco players had their tails up but Berri’s
openers were steady early.
They lost two wickets by the sixth over
and were 2/19, both to Dave Golding includ-
ing a sharp catch by Taylor at second slip.
Berri were 6/40 with 18 overs left to play,
Alex Lean and Taylor both took 2/2 and Berri
were 9/47 with eight overs left to survive.
Only Wayne Scadden had showed any
real grit until Bobby Taylor made it look like
they would avoid outright defeat.
No one told Griffiths as he demanded
the ball and said he only needed one over to
His statement appeared hollow until on
the last ball of the day his wrongun spat and
turned to catch the outside edge of Taylor’s
bat to Kym Taylor at slip.
This delivered a hard fought outright
victory to the Warriors to help them secure
second spot behind Loxton as finals ap-

This Saturdays match to start at 8am due to the heat.
IT seems that the week
of bowls in Adelaide has
provoked something special
from the top side this week
in the Riverland bowls
Some 13 Waikerie players
spent the majority of the week
in the city participating in the
Notable performances were
from Barry Harden and Roger
Davies in the pairs (through
to round 5) and Dixie Lee and
Grant Frahm in the pairs
(through to round 6). Four club
members will travel back to the
city to take part in the singles
after winning through the first
four rounds of competition.
Andy Fulwood, Wayne Col-
lins, Butch Burnett and John
Segneri will play off on Sunday
and hopefully, Monday.
Last Saturday, the first divi-
sion side took on and defeated
top of the ladder side Loxton
RSL 87 to 74 and now look
almost certain to be play finals
Brian (Butch) Burnett’s side
of Gary Pursche, Grant Frahm
and Greg Micke led the way
with a solid win 25 to 12.
The Barry Harden rink con-
tinued its recent good form with
a 23 to 19 win. Roger Davies rink
were also successful 20 to 17.
Unfortunately the Collins
rink were unable to complete
the quadrella going down 19 to
26. While they may have sealed
a place in the finals, one round
remains against Berri at Berri
on Saturday and they will be
looking for another big result.
Second division: An im-
pressive performance against
Moorook sees the seconds main-
tain top spot on the ladder and
it now means they should finish
top and host the first round of
The Bill Haby rink recorded
a solid 27 to 17 win. Drew Scha-
pel skipped his first game for a
18 to 13 win. David Thompson‘s
rink scraped home for a 24 to
The seconds take on fourth
placed Renmark in the final
round and really only need to
win a single rink to stay in top
position but will be working on
winning the game.
Third division: Something
seems to be going wrong with
the thirds. After leading the
competition by the proverbial
country mile with only a couple
of rounds to go, one of the front
wheels has apparently fallen
off. However, hope prevails and
a win in the final round against
fourth-placed Monash will see
them finishing top and also host-
ing the first finals.
A loss to second-placed Ren-
mark 66 to 61. John Mortimer
won his game 23 to 19. Fred King
lost 18 to 22. Brian Oliver lost
20 to 25.
Fourth division: Fourth
division are in a battle with the
Berri Blue team for top place
on the ladder. They chalked up
a tight 59 to 55 win over Berri
Blue at Berri with Henry Mor-
timer and Merv Rolton rinks
The mid-week team suffered
its first loss in 13 weeks.
While there were excuses for
the loss because of the unavail-
ability of players in Adelaide,
it was thought that the replace-
ments were of a good enough
standard to take out the match
against 11 placed Renmark RSL.
Only one round remains to
be played today, taking on third
placed Berri Blue, but once
again there will be several play-
