MALLALA WIN: Gawler bowlers John Hill, Tony Drummond, Kym Reynolds and Leigh Roberts won the annual Mallala menʼs fours tournament last
week, ﬁnishing top out of 20 bowling outﬁts from across the state. The runner-up side was almost a family aﬀair with Secomb brothers Maurice,
Trevor and Rod teaming up with family friend Trevor Johnson to battle hard all day. Tournament director Lionel Miller said he was pleased teams
came to play in the tournament from as far away as Reynella, Crystal Brook and Murray Bridge.
LYNDOCH: Lyndoch hosted Eudunda in Saturday's
division one matches, with the home side losing by
eight shots and two rinks.
Glyn Ayres skippered Dylan O'Leary, Dwayne Morris

at the midway point.
The Eagles had to battle hard after tea, but the side
showed good composure holding a small lead, which
resulted in a two-shot win.

Boswell and lan Greenshields, played steadily, but late
opposition scoring saw the side experience a three-shot
Darren Green, with Ted Teague, Kevin Gavin and Bob
Howell, broke away early, holding a ve-shot lead by tea.
The visitors bounced back, but Lyndoch proved too
strong and managed to peg back the score line and
nudge in front, winning by three shots.
John Scholes, with charges Susanne Drummond,
Kevin Boyle and Terri Scholes, had a tight game early,
and were unable to match their strong opposition,
going down by 10 shots.

two matches, with players coming home with a 43-shot
loss and all rinks down.
Denise Turvey skippered Je Pratt, Rex Vanstone and
Ruth Tainsh, who all handled the green well.
Unfortunately, the opposition came out ring after
the break, and it was too much for Lyndoch to handle.
The side nished with a 15-shot loss.
Skipper Trevor Noble, with Geo Elsworth, lvor Turner
and Bob Fuller, started well in what would be a tightly
The side worked hard, but only struggled late in the
match, nishing 13 shots down.
Jos Allwood, with Rob Heidrich, Jean Elsworth and
Linda Fuller, battled hard, but the opponents managed
to win ends when it counted.

It was a tough day against Kapunda for Lyndoch's
division three, as some players experienced some last-
minute illnesses to prevent them from taking the green,
causing a 25-shot loss.
Bruce Wilson skippered Bob Chopping and Ken
Burton in what was always going to be a tough match.
The side tried hard, but with a short team and a
strong opposition, the match proved tough and the
team went down by seven shots.
Allan Turvey's rink of Peter Robinson and Brian Koch
also had a player missing.
The side stuck to the task, narrowly trailing early,
however struggled to get the results and ended up
going down by 15 shots.

displayed a strong performance and ended up taking
out a well-earned seven-shot victory.
Rink of the Week this week was awarded to Mike
Cotton, who skippered David Lindner and Je Pratt.
SOUTH GAWLER: What a weekend it was to be a Lion.
The highlight of the weekend was the narrow win in
the day/night xture at Gawler Oval against the Tigers
in the A1s.
It was a game that looked to be slipping away, but
was sensationally won with crucial wickets at the last roll
of the dice and tight bowling throughout.
South put together 9/178, with Beefy (46), the King
of the North #Kotn (37), and Trae (35) being serviceable
Other quality performers included 'the Dare show',
who took three quick scalps to have the Tigers in
The most exciting part of the match was the nal
over, which saw the opposition faced with six runs to
take the match.
The boys ended up sneaking home by four runs! Keep
it up, boys #ccu.
In the A2s, also against Gawler Central, the boys put
on a defendable 8/205, with Wes Andrews (42), Nathan
Bartsch (35) and the Plug (35) all scoring handy runs.
In reply, Gawler Central batted out their overs but
couldn't catch us, nishing on 8/171.
Johno Connolly (3/17) and Brayden Fitzpatrick (2/38)
were best with the ball. Well done, boys.
In the Cs, batting rst on a slow, juicy turf deck
at Eudunda, the boys nished on 5/183 -- a very
defendable score in the conditions -- thanks largely to
Jamahl Butler's hard-working knock of 97 runs.
In the reply, the boys were always ahead, with
Eudunda being bowled out for 148.
Martin Vanzwol (4/28) was the pick of the bowlers.
The under 14s playing at Gawler High School made
5/70, with Mann (23) and Anderson (16) being the best
with the bat.
Opposition side Greenock was too good, making
Best with the ball was Bradley Golder with 2/8.
The boys continue to improve as a team. Well done,
On January 28, the club will be hosting a beach-
themed night with an iPod shu e, following the success
of the night early in the season.
All players, members and partners are more than
welcome to enjoy the night.
TRINITY OLD SCHOLARS: The TOS train keeps rolling
with two wins from two games over the weekend.
At Waldeck, the A grade kicked o in promising
fashion as Goodwood started at 2/7 in pursuit of our 120
made last week.
Mitchell Dearing struck early and wickets kept falling
as Goody succumbed for 98.
Fittingly, Mitchy took the nal wicket to secure the
win -- prompting a loud celebration from birthday boy
It's also worth noting a historical occasion that
occurred on Saturday, with Ron Dinan running the score
book for our bowling innings.
From the bowling side of things, Dearing and Brad
Schaper were miserly in collecting 6/28 from 22.3 overs
between them, while Nick Hooker took two wickets.
Our second dig was a chance for a few blokes to get
some batting practise and we nished 8/146 at stumps,
with Alex Cotter coming in at nine to make 27* and
Austin Smith 22*.
Moe Walker made 20, while Dan Elvin was unlucky to
be run out for 18.
It was a good result that put us into second place.
The B grade played a limited-overs contest against
Goodwood at Lockleys and had a crucial win to stay in
Dylan Winning took the boys to victory with an
unbeaten 79, which included six sixes, as we chased
Goodwood's 8/180 from 40 overs.
At 8/109, the boys looked in trouble, but Josh Lee (9*)
stayed strong with Winning to form a 76-run partnership
to secure the win.
Providing further support was 'Eurotrip' Williams (31),
while the opposition conceded 13 wides.
The bowling innings saw Sam Peters, Cam Fletcher
and Josh Lee each take two wickets.
Sadly, the Gawler River wicket could not be prepared
for Saturday, so the C grade drew with Glenunga, a side
we dismissed for just 36 last time we played.
This week, the A grade takes on top side Pooraka at
Lindblom Park, the B grade are home to Marion, while
the C grade faces Rostrevor Old Collegians at Gawler
River in what should be a tight contest.
Finally, the club o ers its thoughts and support to our
C-grade skipper, Matt Knox, at this time.
HAMLEY: Hamley Bridge players returned to the
green last Wednesday, after taking a break due to high
temperatures, for a club stableford competition.
The winner on the day was Karl U emann with 41
points, ahead of John Mitchell and Bob Hillier, 40
points, and George Dahitz, 39 points, who were all
Featuring in the better half were Roen Cameron (38),
Doug Cooper (36), Wim Van Pelt and Barry Schwartz (35).
On the day, birdies were made by John Mitchell on
the 11th and 12th, and both Karl U emann and Barry
Schwartz on the 11th.
A nearest to the pin was won by John Mitchell on the
Saturday's par competition was played with some
Anton Noack (+5) won the day, ahead of Karl
U eman and John Mitchell (+3) and Barry Schwartz
In other news, the club is currently reviewing its heat
policy because there hasn't been a lot of play over the
Christmas period, despite matches scheduled for the
cooler morning time-slot.
Members have researched other clubs' policies,
nding they alter their schedules -- changing afternoon
matches to the morning -- to prevent missing play due
Currently, the club is crunching the numbers, based
on attendance of approximately 20 on competition days,
which should generate around $120 to $140 of income,
including bar takings.
Hamley Bridge has seen an ongoing reduction of the
eld of players, and a re-thinking of the heat rule would
be appropriate to ensure consistent player numbers, as
well as covering the costs of course maintenance -- as
costs still apply even if the course is not used.
