The three teams vying for

Riverland Saturday division

With just two more rounds
remaining, the final spot remains
Waikerie lost 62-75 on its home
ground against Renmark.
Sean Leesue's four did most of the
damage for Renmark, winning 26-8,
while Roger Davies' team was in
good nick for Waikerie, beating Bill
Dopson's quartet 28-13.
In a surprise scoreline, home side
Loxton Blue went down 66-98
against Renmark RSL.
Loxton Blue's Brad Semmler
skippered his team to a 22-all draw
against the RSL team skippered by
Ken Knight. At half time the score
John Vaughan's four copped a
32-shot thrashing at the hands of the
Renmark team skippered by John
van der Wyst.
The Renmark four collected five
threes, two fours and a six.
The RSL four skippered by Ron
Adam beat Vic Pavia's team 18-17.
Pavia's team won eight ends com-
pared to the RSL's teams 13 ends.
The game was reasonably close,
however whenever the RSL got
in front, Loxton would eventually
chase down the lead.
Terry Thurston's four was Loxton's
only winning team. Thurston's
four led 12-1 after the seventh end
against Mal Inglis's four, but the
Renmark RSL team almost caught
up, eventually going down by a sin-
gle shot, 18-19.
In a closer than expected match,
Loxton RSL beat Loxton Yellow
The Loxton Yellow quartet skip-
pered by Neil Thiele won 23-22
against Steve Roberts' team, turning
around a 9-13 half time deficit.
Loxton Yellow skipper Peter
Kimber and his Loxton RSL coun-
terpart Jade Wright had a very mixed
game, with the RSL breaking clear
in the second half of the game.
Before going in for a break,
Kimber's team picked up a seven for
a one-shot half-time lead.
However, Wright's team finished
well, eventually triumphing 26-16.
The Loxton RSL team skippered
by Lew Westbrook led 10-7 at
the break, before Brian Bullock's
Loxton Yellow team hit the front
nearing the end of the match.
At the start of the final end, scores
were level, but Westbrook's team
collected a four to seal an 18-14 win.
In the other match-up, Yellow's
Des Schliebs guided his team to
a 28-21 win over the Loxton RSL
team skippered by Geoff Huppatz.
Schliebs' team dropped some big
numbers, but also gained a few, to
break a recent run of losses.
In the other division one match,
Berri posted a regulation 31-shot
victory over Barmera, taking maxi-
mum points from the match.

day in their clash.
