Loxton struggles under pressure
Barmera moved into the
top four with a comfortable
8-4 win over Loxton in
Riverland division one tennis
Barmera led 4-2 after the doubles and
extended its lead during the singles.
Justin Bannear, Paul Jericho,
Katie Bannear and Brooke Penney
were all victorious for Barmera.
Phil Smith won at top men's sin-
gle for Loxton, while Dale Stirling
was also triumphant.
Cobdogla bounced back to form
with an 11-2 win over Berri-view.
Shane Nettle and Katie Saville
returned to the side for Cobdogla
and had an immediate impact.
Adam Drogemuller did a good job
for Berri-view, pushing Nettle at top
single, while Marnie Stewart won
Berri-view's only rubber against
Renmark Tintra's unbeaten run
continued on Saturday -- but
Tintra defeated Waikerie by just
one game to remain atop the lad-
der, while Waikerie is still winless
after three rounds.
Waikerie's Penny Kroehn and
Tianna Adamczyk put their side in a
strong position, dropping just three
games across their two doubles rub-
bers against Megan Schwartzkopff
and Karen Martin.
Wins to Steven Braun and Ben
Haynes in the top men's singles
helped Waikerie's cause.
However, John van der Hoek,
Mick Roy and Schwartzkopff all
won convincingly to give Renmark
the overall victory.

can fly for marks and
grab them in contested
situations, and then run
