GAWLER Rangers fell back into
their old habits in a nil-11 loss to
Adelaide in Baseball SA's division
three on Saturday.
Following the Rangers' previous
week's nil-all draw with Kensing-
ton, Saturday's match at Karbeethan
looked like following in similar fash-
ion when both sides remained score-
less after three innings.
However, things went horribly
awry for Gawler in the fourth frame;
it made an incredible seven errors to
gift Adelaide 11 unearned runs in
what has been described as one of the
worst single innings in the club's his-
In the final frame Adelaide was held
scoreless again, which highlighted the
fielding woes of the Rangers this sea-
son -- another costly result after one
Gawler had its chances, with base
runners in every inning, but could
not break through.
A pick-off play in the fifth frame
proved costly as the Rangers loaded
the bases with two out.
With regular starting pitcher
Thomas Norley away with the under-
16 state team, Josh Mayfield stepped
up and threw well, but could not get
out of the fourth inning as the field-
ing crumbled behind him.
In division four, the Rangers missed
out on their first win of the season
when they gave up three final inning
runs to go down 6-7.
Ben Mayfield worked hard on the
mound, but tired in the final inning,
in what was a solid effort.
Today, Gawler's division three
team has a twilight game against
Northern Districts at home, com-
mencing at 6.15pm, and then re-
turns to the field on Saturday
when it hosts East Torrens at 3pm.

(hits -- S. Vanpoorten, R. Clark, S. Couzner,
S. Clark, T. Ryan);

er 6-7 (hits -- B. May eld, P. Skelton, S. Van-

NURIOOTPA emerged from
the Christmas break stron-
ger than ever, putting in a
solid performance to defeat
Eudunda by 37 shots in the
Barossa & Light Bowling As-
sociation on Saturday.
In a weekend predicted to be
heavily affected by rain, surpris-
ingly all division one matches
were completed, despite a num-
ber of division two and three
matches being abandoned.
Nuri was unfazed by the cool
conditions, winning three of its
four rinks on its way to its eighth
win of the season.
Adam Forbes scored the big-
gest win for his side, defeating
Eudunda's Greg Prior by 25
Chris Jones was the only
Eudunda player to taste victory,
beating Robert Grope by a nar-
row five shots.
Lyndoch rose from fourth to
third spot after its 21-shot win
The side won three of its four
rinks for the afternoon, high-
lighted by a big 17-shot win to
Chris Rule over Kapunda's Rus-
Angaston remains just one win
behind ladder leader Nuriootpa
after its convincing 38-shot vic-
tory over Tanunda.
It was Tanunda's first game in
three weeks, having had the bye
the round before the Christmas
break, and it struggled to match
it with the in-form visitors.
Angaston clinched wins in
three of its four rinks, with John
Standish leading the way with a
whopping 31-shot triumph over
In division two, Angaston
White and Nuriootpa Green re-
mained deadlocked at 11 games

Tough start for Gawler
GAWLER Bowling Club en-
dured a tough start to the
new year, with its only win on
Saturday coming via forfeit.
Gawler's premier league struggled
to match it with its more favoured
Marion opponents, losing by a size-
able 48 shots.
Ross McConnell's rink provided

The metro two's came within

but were unable to overcome the

teams led the way, notching three-
and four-shot wins, respectively, to
