Home' The Bunyip : March 12th 2015 Contents EUDUNDA has ended any
chance of sneaking into the
Barossa & Light Bowling
Association top four after los-
ing to bottom-placed Freeling
by two shots on Saturday.
Had it beaten Freeling, this
week’s match against Tanunda
could well have been a do-or-die
fight for a finals berth, but, instead,
it finds itself out of contention with
one round to go.
Freeling’s win was the result of an
all-round team effort, highlighted
by Mike Cotton’s crucial five-shot
win over Andrew Pfitzner.
Kapunda continued its unpre-
dictable form, upsetting Tanunda
by 19 shots.
Having lost to Freeling last round,
Kapunda bounced back strongly to
win two rinks, and draw one.
Greg Cruickshank was the most
dominant Kapunda player, beating
Tony Edwards by 16 shots.
Angaston produced a vital six-
shot win over Lyndoch to stay
within reach of a top-two finish.
Had Angaston lost, it would
have been two games behind
Lyndoch in third place with one
game to play; instead, it now
plays Freeling this weekend (while
Lyndoch has the bye) and a win
will shoot it into the top two.
While it was a gutsy all-round
performance, Angaston’s standout
was Matt Short, whose nine-shot
win was vital to the result.
In division two, Nuriootpa Gold
remains in the hunt for a top-four
finish after beating Eudunda by
28 shots, while Lyndoch missed a
chance to climb into finals conten-
tion after an upset loss to Angaston
Angaston White and Nuriootpa
Green are still well ahead of the rest
of the competition at the top of the

Kaye’s memorable day
ON a dewy morning at the Gawler
golf course last Wednesday, Kaye
Korber did what few golfers have
achieved – a hole in one.
The 58-year-old Evanston Park resi-
dent teed off from the par-three sixth
hole and was elated when the ball
tracked along the green, hit the pin,
and dropped in.
“I was so excited,” Korber said.
“The tee-off block was near the
dam, so I was down a bit lower and
my partner (Leslie Pyke) was up a bit
higher, where the path is.
“So I hit the shot and it landed, and
“I thought ‘oh, this looks close, I
might have a chance at a birdie,’ and
then Leslie screamed out ‘it’s in the
hole!’ and I couldn’t believe it.”
Korber has always been a keen ten-
nis, squash, netball and basketball
player, however years on the court
took their toll on her knees and
forced her to retire from high-impact
After a few years of being idle, she
took to the fairways in 2000 and hasn’t
looked back since – however, it took
a lot of encouragement from her hus-
band, Trevor, to get started.
“He kept wanting me to play golf
and I kept saying no and then one
day he came home with a set of golf
clubs and said ‘right, we’re going out
and you’re going to play golf ’,” Korber
“I now wish I had started earlier, I
In her 15 years of golfing, Korber
remembers only one previous instance
where she has got close to a hole in
“I’ve come close once on the fourth,
it was only just a couple of inches from
the hole,” she said.
“But, if it’s not in, it’s not in.”
As an active member of the Gawler
Golf Club, serving as the ladies’ secre-
tary in the past, Korber said the thing
she loves most about the sport is that
it is inclusive of people of all ages, and
a great social activity.
“You meet such a lot of nice people
and have fun, enjoy it and you are al-
ways trying to do better than the last
game,” she said.

nine-shot loss to Clearview in the

Peter McConnell’s charges scored
a fighting two-shot win, while Ross

It was a better result for Gawler’s

wins, highlighted by a 10-shot tri-

KANGAS are hitting their straps
at just the right time, smashing
Giants 18-0 on Saturday in the
last Gawler & Districts Softball
Association round before finals.
Giants could only watch as Kangas’
batters Amanda Stuart, Ellen Fryar
and Laura Helbig put on a show, with
Annie Unger and Kareena Donnan also
chipping in with a home run each.
Unger also starred from the pitcher’s
plate, conceding only three hits for the
One positive for the Giants was the
performance of their juniors. Tia Gill
played well in her first game as catcher,
while Tyler Hensel worked tirelessly in
Impressive batting from Two Wells
resulted in a 14-2 victory over an un-
dermanned All Stars.
Heather Baldock and Sally Green
led the way, with their batting mak-
ing it nearly impossible for the seven-
player All Stars’ outfit to compete.
Green also had a standout game as
pitcher, managing five strikeouts and
conceding only two walks.
Kangas also got the better of Giants
in division two, winning 13-1.
Ebony Peel and Anna Helbig were
two standouts for Kangas, while pitch-
er Rhianna Havis was solid and Jaquie
Legg batted superbly.
Trinity produced a convincing all-
round performance to beat Two Wells
After a strong fielding display, led by
Amelia Benn, Trinity cashed in with
the bat to pile on the runs and leave
Two Wells in its wake.
In the final match, Bluejays record-
ed a 14-6 win over Trinity.
Bluejays batted first and took advan-
tage of Trinity pitcher Jo Tryfopoulos,
which led to Jacqui Baldock replacing
her on the plate.
However, the early damage was
done and, despite a home run from
Brenda Deduonni, Trinity could not
overcome the deficit.
