This week’s Angaston
Bowling Club pennants
for both Thursday and
Saturday revealed the
matches being shortened
due to the weather with
Thursday playing only 13 ends due to the heat
and Saturday affected by the much needed rain.
With shortened matches it does emphasise
the need to get off to a good start, otherwise it is
game over before you know it.
Midweek Ladies: Angaston White had the
bye and the Blues were home to Freeling winning
by four with Faye Bain getting up by eight over
Kerry Bitter and Lyn Teakle going down by four
to Karen Swanson.
Midweek Men: Both games had a one shot
margin with the Whites having an away loss of
one to Nuriootpa Green and the Blues getting
up by one over Nuriootpa Gold at home. For the
Whites, John Standish went down by seven to Ian
Klaebe, Mark Schutz was 11 up over Stuart Allen
and Fred Thomas lost by five to Albert Wilkinson.
In the Blues, Bryan Tuttle found Bob Randall’s
rink too strong losing by 13. Brian Teakle got up
by two over John Bell and the reliable Ken Brook
had a 12 point victory over Wayne Williams to
secure the overall points.
Saturday Pennants: Division 1 were away
to Lyndoch in what lived up to be a very close en-
counter with second playing third. For Angaston,
the rain could not have come sooner allowing
them to get up by two to maintain second place
on the ladder. All rinks were close with the end
result two rinks all. John Standish went down by
four to Harry Sykes, Matt Short was two up over
Trevor Noble and Brian Bowden won by seven
over David Hausler. Mark Schutz lost by three
to Chris Rule.
Division 2 Blue were home to Nuriootpa
Green and whilst the match was shortened by
the rain, Nuriootpa were just too strong and got
up by 20 with all their rinks up. Kevin Renshaw
lost by seven to Neil Collyer. Lyn Teakle went
down by three to Ian Klaebe and Mavis Elsworthy
was 10 shy of Kevin North.
Division 2 White continued on their winning
way, getting up by 13 over Tanunda at home.
Andrew Booth won by 16 over David Armstrong
to take the Rink of the Week. Judy Argent lost
by eight to Peter Knight and Ken Brook got up
by five over Darryl Grear.
This week the Whites take on Nuriootpa Green
in what will be the match of the round with both
sides currently undefeated.
Division 3: It was the top of the table clash
with second placed Angaston away to the top side
Lyndoch. Unfortunately, Angaston just could not
get into the match, going down by 45 points with
all rinks losing. Ian Philp lost by 17 to Jocelyn
Allwood, Zol Horvath went down by 10 to Alan
Turvey and Faye Bain also lost by 17 to Denise

weather foreshortened games.

Ladies tasted the sweet smell of success by the
same solitary margin.
With the Lady Blacks down by three to

foursome, 27 to 13.
