Tyler duo win
by Steve Patching
Daryl and Marlene Tyler again dominated
the Loxton Golf Club’s mixed foursomes
Played over 27 holes, the pair fired 123 to win
handsomely from Peter Harman and Jill Fogden,
who finished four strokes back.
John and Karen Henwood kept the mar-
ried couple theme going by winning the handi-
cap event, with a net score of 108, some five
and a half strokes clear of their nearest rivals.
Playing off a handicap of eight and a half, the Tylers
were clear favourites from the start.
Marlene is the current women’s club champion
and Daryl was runner-up in the men’s final.
With splits of 40, 40 and 43 on each of the nine
holes, their consistent golf was too good for the rest
of the field, who typically struggled to score well in
this difficult form of the game.
Brett Proud’s 37 points was good enough to win
the men’s stableford on Saturday, while Andrew
Giles enjoyed a day out on Wednesday with 40 sta-
His handicap is rapidly dropping with each impres-
The individual highlight of the week belongs to Jill
Fogden, who scored a hole-in-one on Wednesday on
the second hole.
Her three wood appeared to be too much club, but
Fogden had the pleasure of the emotional transition
from alarm to exhilaration when the ball found the
This was the third hole-in-one in three months,
the earlier ones being scored by Phil Proud and
Blackwood’s John De Roos.

Marlene and Darryl Tyler, winners of the Loxton
Golf Club’s Mixed Foursomes Championship.
Loxton upset Waikerie 2-1 to win
back-to-back Riverland A grade
men’s grand finals.
Waikerie’s Rowan Hope gave his team
an early lead scoring a deflection goal from
a direct pass from Brenton Kroehn.
Loxton regrouped with Ryan Hentschke,
Steven Tresize and Michael Lange sending
the ball into attack.
Tim Pannell displayed some great skills,
eluding a number of Waikerie’s defenders
to find the stick of Karl Hennig.
The veteran then outplayed Waikerie’s
keeper to equalise the scores.
Waikerie’s Brenton Kroehn and Alex
Fulwood continually lifted their side, run-
ning and directing play with Cameron
Hope solid in defence.
Loxton’s desire for the ball and team-
work enabled Joel Hampel to receive the
ball in the circle and slam it in.
Loxton was looking the goods going into
the half time break 2-1 up.
Waikerie had a number of early oppor-
tunities and was regularly lined up at the
penalty corner spot.
Loxton keeper Dan Schubert was equal
to the task as time and time again Waikerie
was denied goals.
Pannell and Hentschke moved the ball
at a fast pace, but Cameron Hope was reli-
able in defence as the ball see sawed from
end to end.
Penalty corners came and went with
neither side capitalising on their opportu-
It was not to be for Waikerie as last
minute attacking moves went unrewarded
giving Loxton the 2014 premiership.
Hennig was named best on ground for
Loxton B grade men become premiers
for the second year in a row, after beat-
ing Waikerie 3-1 in Saturday’s grand final.
Josh Baird played a slapshot over the
keeper’s head to give Loxton a 1-0 lead,
before Michael Hopper made it 2-0 in the
Luke Frost answered for Waikerie, but
Kelvin Burgemeister sealed the game for
Loxton shortly after. Nathan Richardson
was best on ground.
Berri won its first Riverland A grade
women’s hockey premiership since
1995 on Saturday night, ending Loxton’s
run of six titles in a row.
It was nearly 20 years in between pre-
mierships for Berri, with half of the team’s
current team members not even born back
The match started evenly, with neither
team capitalising on opportunities.
Berri had much of the play in the first
half and chances of scoring went begging
until veteran Kris Weir jumped on to a
loose ball catching Tracey Townsend out
Midfielders Naomi Wetherald, Jane
Hustler and Ada Walladge were dominat-
ing in the centre, setting up Berri’s attack.
Loxton defenders Louise Smith, Tara
Allister and Suzie Stivatharis were equal to
the task preventing any more score and at
half time Berri led 1-0.
A restructured Loxton took to the field in
the second half. Steph Baird led her team
into attack with fine stick work, combin-
ing well with Tara Allister and Cheryl
Baird eluded a number of Berri’s defend-
ers to tomahawk a superb goal from the
edge of the circle, equalising the score.
The tempo lifted, with Berri having a
number of penalty corners, but Loxton
keeper Townsend kept making great saves.
Berri’s Kira McMahon, Emma Cuteri
and Walladge used the ball well, putting
Loxton under extreme pressure.
Kira McMahon used her speed and skill
to outplay Loxton’s defence to tomahawk
a goal to give Berri a one-goal buffer with
seven minutes remaining in the game.
Within minutes McMahon received a
well-placed pass from Jen Kiel and again
went solo into the circle.
Townsend had no chance of saving a high
ball into the top of the net to give Berri a
lead of 3-1 with seconds left to play.
Allister, undeterred, tried valiantly to
narrow the gap, but time was against her,
giving Berri the 2014 premiership title.
Best on ground was Berri’s Walladge.
Berri won both women’s titles after beat-
ing Waikerie 2-1.
Jo Size opened Berri’s account, with
Sarah Schiller, Nina Rayner and Courtney
Lean working hard for Waikerie.
Size scored again before half time.
Eventual best on ground Rayner stepped
up for Waikerie and scored a field goal
early in the second half, but Berri held on
Berri beat Waikerie 2-0 to win the under
18 men’s grand final, while Waikerie
easily defeated Berri 6-2 to take out the
under 18 women’s decider.
Renmark won its only flag of the day,
beating Waikerie 4-1 in the under 15 men,
while Waikerie Black overcame Waikerie
White 1-0 in the under 12 mixed final.

Waikerie completed its undefeated season
with a comfortable win in the under 15
football grand final on Saturday.
The Magpies controlled from start to finish, with
Renmark scoring three goals to bridge the final
margin to 32 points.
The Rovers were held goalless in the first half
and Waikerie could have led by more if not for
some errant goal kicking.
The young Magpies kicked 3.10, but their domi-
nance was rewarded in the third term when they
broke away to lead by 36 points.
Berri’s under 13s also finished the year without a
loss, overcoming Waikerie by 37 points.
After a tense first quarter which saw Berri lead
by just four points, the Demons kicked five goals
Waikerie matched it with Berri for the remainder
of the game, but the damage was already done.
