Waikerie upset Loxton RSL
by 17 shots away from home in

win by five.
Gary Pursche made it two from
two for Waikerie, picking up six
shots on the first end and going
on to win 26-14 against Lew
Waikerie's Wayne Collins held
on to defeat Steve Roberts by a
shot, with the Loxton RSL skip-
per coming from six down after
RSL's Jade Wright also won
by one shot, defeating Waikerie's
Robert Lee 25-24.
Top team Berri pushed clear with
a 31-shot victory over Loxton
Andrew Hill blitzed the second
half of his clash with Loxton Blue's
Bruce Schubert to win 34-11, with
the latter only claiming one end
after the break.
Berri's Graham Butt defeated
Terry Thurston 20-11, reeling off
the final nine shots of the game for

ends and went on to beat Loxton
Blue's Brad Semmler 22-14.
Loxton Blue's only rink win went
to John Vaughan, who beat Berri's
Mark Kubank by nine shots.

the trot with a three-shot vic-
tory over Loxton Yellow.
The match came down to the
final end across the board, with

Loxton Yellow's David McRae-
Wood 29-11, picking up two fours
and two threes along the way.
Loxton Yellow's Des Schliebs
fought back from a horrific start
against Bill Dopson. Trailing 1-11

Schleibs went on to win 25-20.
Neil Thiele led all day against
Renmark's Mick Rice and even-
tually won 18-14, while Peter
Kimber made it three rink wins
for Loxton Yellow, beating Sean
Barmera could be a legitimate
Bowls Riverland division one
threat, following its fifth win of the
season on Saturday.
Barmera defeated bottom team
Renmark RSL by 19 shots to push
itself into third spot and just one
win behind second-placed Loxton
Barmera's Phil Ashton had a
great start to the game against
Renmark RSL's Mal Inglis, leading
11-2 after six ends and pushing on
to a 28-17 win.

his clash with John van der Wyst
at half time, leading 18-4 before

down by nine.

against Ray Kuchel 26-24, picking
up the majority of his shots across
Barmera's Dennis Wutke won
by a shot against Ray Kuchel after
trailing by a shot at the half way
