start for golfers
Loxton contested the first round of the
People's Choice Credit Union Tri-Club
Challenge trophy at Blackwood on Sunday
and came second to the Blackwood hosts.
Taking the aggregate of the top seven men and three
women golfers' scores, Blackwood finished with 374
points, 33 points clear of Loxton.
Millicent finished a further 31 points behind Loxton.
Last year Loxton nearly won the trophy for the first
time when it fell just six points short of Blackwood
and lost the overall tally by just 11 points, so this
year's result was a disappointment.
The challenge now will be to establish a solid lead
after Loxton hosts the second leg in June.
Best scorers for Loxton were Steve Patching 40,
Don Cregan 39 and Lewis Cregan 37.
Cate Cahill was the best of the women with 35
Saturday's stableford at Loxton was highlighted by
a hole-in-one by Shane Semmler on the second.
David Sunman took overall honours with a narrow
win over Brenton Chapman.
Sunman's 41 and Chapman's 40 points continued
the trend of high scoring over the past few months.
Daryl Tyler was another high scoring winner on
Wednesday. Playing off a handicap of 8, Tyler shot 75
off of the stick to finish with 41 points.
Cathy Arndt dominated the women's mid-week
stableford. Her 40 points saw her finish 7 points clear
of her nearest rival.

Easy victories for locals
The experience of
Barmera's Dillon Millard
and Loxton's Jackie
Dahlitz came to the fore
last Thursday night,
with both sinking three-
pointers to keep their
teams in the premiership
Millard (16 points) sunk
a three with two seconds
remaining to help Barmera
beat Renmark in overtime in
the division one men's first
Scores were close all
night, with Barmera arresting
Renmark's early momentum,
before the Steamers tied up
the game late.
Adam Grose was fouled
out late in regulation time
for Barmera thanks to a tech
foul from a lack of discipline,
which could have proved cost-
ly for the Lakers.
James McLeod (13 points)
was fouled out for Renmark
with a minute remaining.
Scores were level with sev-
en seconds left when young-
ster Isaac Kolcas drove to the
basket and was fouled.
He made the first of his free
throws and missed the second
only to be given another shot
due to Ryan Hodgson break-
ing the line early. Kolcas hit
his next shot to give Renmark
a two-point lead as Barmera
took a time-out.
General consensus around
the stadium was that Millard
would try to draw a foul, but
he had other ideas.
With two seconds remain-
ing and under heavy defence,
Millard slotted a three to send
the Lakers to the preliminary
The second semi-final saw
Loxton far too strong
for Waikerie, winning by 17
The Supercats had winners
all over the court, despite
Andrew Tullett leaving the
court with injury five minutes
into the game.
Waikerie recruit Nico
Norca had little influence on
the game, scoring only three
points from six free throws.
Adam Proud played well
on Norca in defence and also
played well offensively, scor-
ing 15 points, while Jesse Will
Che Lange also played well
Mitchell White top scored
again for Waikerie with 13,
while Terry Morgan was also
in good touch.
Loxton overcame Berri by
three points courtesy of a
shot from outside the arc from
Dahlitz in Thursday night's
division one women's first
Berri put in a brave effort,
but Loxton had a slight edge
for much of the night.
With just under a minute
remaining scores were level
and once again it was up to
Dahlitz to take the responsi-
bility of scoring the winning
With 30 seconds remaining,
Dahlitz hit a long-range bomb
to put Loxton three ahead,
giving the Blazers a big task
to tie the scores.
Cobie Drogemuller nearly
nailed her three-point attempt
with five seconds remaining,
but Loxton held on to win.
Dahlitz (seven points) and
Lyn Sweeney (eight) led the
way for Loxton, while Lauren
Hill played a lone offensive
hand for Berri, finishing with
13.Renmark advanced to the
grand final with a three-
point victory over Waikerie in
Thursday's second semi-final.
Renmark played a full court
trap, which unsettled Waikerie
early. The Warriors overcame
this by having Mica Liu (11
points) control the floor.
Renmark led by two points
at the final change and pulled
away in the final quarter.
Once again Hannah
Lehmann (21) tried to lift
Waikerie over the line, hitting
two late triples, but it was not
Reeni Leuders played one
of her best games for the sea-
son for Renmark, scoring 10
points, while Lori Haynes also

BASKETBALL GRAND FINAL
TIMES: PAGE 15
A full-strength Renmark Tintra
warmed up for finals with an 11-4
victory over Loxton in Riverland
tennis at Berri on Friday.
The victory ensured Renmark finished
in the top two, setting up a second
semi-final battle with Cobdogla this
Saturday at Renmark.
Renmark won all six doubles rubbers,
before John Pick returned to singles
action for Renmark Tintra, immediately
adding depth to the team.
Dean Schumann was the pick of the
players, easily beating Hamish Peberdy
9-1, while Romana Luethke had a tough
battle with Loxton's Brianna Smith
before winning 7-5.
Travis Flight was Loxton's only win-
ner, defeating John van der Hoek 9-7 to
prevent a clean sweep.
In the three-way battle for fourth spot,
Barmera sneaked into the finals with a
7-5 win over Berri-view under lights at
Berri on Friday.
Barmera came from fifth spot to evict
Berri-view from the finals calculation and
will now play Waikerie in this Saturday's
first semi-final at Renmark.
Cobdogla defeated an under-strength
Waikerie 9-3 at Barmera on Friday.
Waikerie is expected to improve in
finals with the return of Troy Lehmann
to the line-up.
Cobdogla led 5-1 after the doubles,
with Tom Waterson and Steven Braun
taking a set off Shane Nettle and Luke
Hampshire for Waikerie.
