and lost by eight shots with two rinks up.
Lyndoch 83 lost to Eudunda 91.
Glyn Ayres skippered Dylan O’Leary, Dwayne
Morris and Rod ldel in a close match. They held a
four shot lead on the l3th then Eudunda levelled
the score after tea, and a further four shots on
the 19th end had the Eagles down by two shots.
They answered with three shots on the 20th end
to get their noses is front, and hung on to win by
two shots. Ayres 25 - Dickenson 23.
Skipper Mike Cotton with Dennis Traeger, Dave
Boswell and lan Greenshields played steadily to
build a six shot lead on the 18th end, then went
off the boil to allow their opponents to amass 10
shots in the remaining ends to go down by three
shots. Cotton 19 - Jones 22.
Darren Green with Ted Teague, Kevin Gavin
and Bob Howell skipped away early to hold a five
shot lead at tea. The visitors won the next three
ends to tie the match on 16 shots, but Lyndoch
answered with seven shots in four ends. They
scored only one shot in the final ends but managed
to hold on for a three shot win. Green 24 - Prior 21.
John Scholes, with charges Susanne Drummond,
Kevin Boyle and Terri Scholes had a tight game
early and led by three shots on the ninth end.
The opposition won the ensuing five ends to hold
a two shot advantage on the 15th end, and a four
on the 21st had the Eagles under the hammer.
They had a brief resurgence, but it was too little
too late, finally going down by 10 shots. Scholes
15 - Schutz 25.
Saturday Div 2: Lyndoch travelled to Tanunda
and came home empty handed, suffering a 43 shot
loss with all rinks down.
Lyndoch 48 lost to Tanunda 91.
Denise Turvey skippering Jeff Pratt, Rex
Vanstone and Ruth Tainsh handled the green
different story after tea, with Tanunda piling on 20

Lyndoch team managed to briefly stem the tide,
but to no avail, going down by 15 shots. Turvey
15 - Schiller 30.
Skipper Trevor Noble with Geoff Elsworth, lvor
Turner and Bob Fuller started well to lead by five
shots on the seventh end, then fell in a hole, with
the host team slamming on 11 shots in seven ends.
The Eagles replied with four shots to get back in
the game and reduce the deficit to two shots on
the 16th end, and looked to be in with a chance,
but only managed to win two of the remaining
ends to lose by 13 shots. Noble 17 - Armstrong 30.
Jos Allwood with Rob Heidrich, Jean Elsworth
and Linda Fuller battled hard to win 13 ends, but

were more prolific, helped by a seven and a five,
to see the Lyndoch team suffer a 15 shot loss.
Allwood 16 - Wallace 31.
Saturday Div 3: Lyndoch played Kapunda away.
A last minute illness resulted in two rinks having
to compete with one player short. They went down
by 25 shots with one rink up.
Lyndoch 44 lost to Kapunda 59.
Bruce Wilson skippered Bob Chopping and Ken
Burton. Despite only having the players they led
by one shot on the 11th end, then the pressure
told with the lack of two bowls each end and they
were overwhelmed after the tea break to go down
by 17 shots. Wilson 11 - Scoot 28.
Allan Turvey’s rink of Peter Robinson and Brian
Koch also had a player missing. They stuck to the
task and only trailed by three shots on the 10th
end, but nine shots in four ends by the home side
ended any chance of a victory and they went down
by 15 shots. Turvey 11- Campbell 26.
David Hausler had a full complement with
Wayne Sanders, John Emerson and Di Jones.
They began slowly on the unfamiliar surface, but
by the break were ahead by three shots. Kapunda
reduced the margin to two shots after tea, but
the Eagles won three of the remaining ends to
take out a well earned seven shot win. Hausler
22 - Thiele 15.

were home to Angaston Blue and maintained their
winning form with a 13 shot win with all rinks up.
Lyndoch Gold 54 defeated Angaston Blue 41.
Skipper Kevin Boyle with lvor Turner and
David Hausler began steadily to hold a seven
shot lead on the eighth end, but Angaston took the
next three ends to level the score at nine apiece.
The Eagles came out firing after the break, to hold
a six shot advantage on the 16th end. The visitors
responded with six shots in the remaining ends,
but Lyndoch took out the match by two shots.
Boyle 17 - Standish 15.
John Scholes skippered Rex Vanstone and
Dennis Traeger and returned to the winner’s circle
with an eight shot win. Honours were even at tea,
with nine shots each, then the Lyndoch boys hit
their straps to score 11 shots in the final ends to
record a creditable victory. Scholes 20 - Thomas 12.
Wayne Sanders and Glyn Ayres with Rod ldel at
the helm had a close match, with scores tied on 10
shots on the 12th end. They gained the upper hand
in the ensuing six ends to build a five shot buffer
on the 18th end, which held them in good stead
to finish three shot winners. Idel 17 - Cockroft 14
Lyndoch Blue were away to Angaston White
and came back with a 10 shot win with one rink
up, one down and a draw.
Trevor Noble, with charges Allen Turvey and
Bob Fuller led by a four shot margin on the eighth
end. The home team scored eight shots in five ends
to turn the tables with the Eagles down three
shots on the 14th end. Despite a brief comeback,
they couldn’t bridge the gap, finally going down
by six shots. Noble 15 - Buckley 21.
Bob Chopping, Jim Sharratt and skipper Bob
Howell were neck and neck on the 10th end, then
two 3s in the next six ends enabled them to hold
a six shot lead on the 17th end. They couldn’t
maintain the pace, and Angaston finished fullof
running, scoring a four on the last end to force a
draw. Howell 17 - Teakle 17.
A different story for Mike Cotton’s rink of David
Lindner and Jeff Pratt, who blitzed the opposition
to lead 15 to one on the eighth end, allowing them
only seven ends to win by a very convincing 16
shots, ensuring an overall victory for the Lyndoch
side. Their performance won them the Rink of the
Week award. Cotton 26 - Campbell 10.
On Tuesday evening the Night Owls gathered
under the stars. The ladder sees Westenders on top
with Blue Boys, Gothic Ghostbusters and Sore Losers
snapping at their heels. At the other end of the table
supporting all those placed above them are Ring Ins,
Ball Bags and Golden Girls Plus One. Their first
win is maybe just around the corner. The season is
now entering the business end. Opportunities are
The Lady Tigers hosted Eudunda. It was a day to
celebrate with all teams striking a winning note. The
Rink of the Week went to Natalie Fyfe and her team
of Deb Allen, Lois Hahn and Carmen Isbel. On the
fifth end they were 12 shots clear without conceding
a score. From there they piled on the pressure to take
the honours by +30. A brilliant result well earned
by all. The overall victory was earnt with Heather
Roberts and her team securing a +19 win and a come
from behind win to Denise Baker and her team by
+3. It would be fantastic to see this as the start of
the climb up the ladder.
The Mid-Week competition is getting interesting
for the Tigers in both conferences. Orange saw Nuri
Black take on Freeling on their green. Rob Chapman
took the honours by +5. Roger Mattschoss with Chris
Forbes leading and Peter Buckley at two proved too
strong for the opposition with a +11 win. The tight
contest saw Geoff Langley and his team fall over
the line with two shots on the last to take the win
by one shot.
Blacks see themselves in second position. With
Tiger Gold climbing up the ladder after their +23
win at Eudunda maybe they can be in the playoffs.
Tony Gerlach had one of those afternoons with Allan
Masters and Steve Heinze. A five on the last end for
Tony Gerlach’s team saw them steal a tie. Meanwhile
the other two rinks were up with Bob Randall a mas-
The Purple conference sees Blue clinging onto a
spot in the top three but, given their losing streak, in
a very precarious position. At Tanunda against Black
the winning team of Alby Wilkinson, Milton Medlow
and Kevin Harrison came from behind to win by one
shot. Dave Marner’s team blew a six shot advantage
and after giving six shots away on one end went down
by seven shots. Wayne Williams and his team were
always chasing the opposition and succumbed by six
shots. The Mojo has gone walkabout. It needs to be
found soon to ensure a place in the playoffs.
Green had a bye and returns this week with a point
to prove as they seek to climb into playoff contention.
On Saturday Tiger One went to Angaston. They
were looking to revenge the loss in the last round.
Ashley Shultz and his team of Colin Baker, Phil
Fechner and Barry Smith were down by seven on
the fifth end but then turned it around to forge ahead
and take the honours by +16.
Adam Forbes had a battle all day and going into
the 23rd end were down by two shots. Scoring a one
followed by a two was enough to sneak in by the
narrowest of margins.
Stuart Allen’s team fought back from a 14 shot
deficit. It was a dire start yet like a phoenix they
rose up to get within one shot with the last end to
play. It was not to be when they dropped a two to
lose by three shots.
Wayne Williams and his team were tied on 10 on
the 10th end but then dropped a three and a five on
the next two ends. They battled it out all afternoon
but were unable to bridge the gap finally succumb-
ing by four shots.
At the end of the day the rinks were split but the
overall margin of 10 shots saw the Tigers celebrating
the victory. Even so it was a close encounter.
In Division 2 the expectation was high for the
Derby. After the dust had cleared the Gold side were
victors by +12.
Trevor Elix’s team for Black had the measure of
Sean Hyland and his team and won by +6.
Pauline Collyer and her team were slow to start
and gave Roger Mattschoss and his team a 10 shot
lead going into the eighth end. They slowly worked
their way back into the match to take the lead by
three shots with two ends to go. Four shots were
dropped over the last two ends and Roger took the
honours for Gold.
Denise Baker established a seven shot margin by
the ninth end. From that point on Peter Buckley and
his team worked their way into the contest. Three
ends on the run home that resulted in Peter Buckley
picking up 16 shots proved decisive. The final mar-
gin was +17 for Peter Buckley and his Gold brigade
of Malcolm Simpkin, Noel Hein and Natalie Fyfe.
Despite this it was closer than the final scoreline
indicates. On close examination on the 23rd end the
overall margin was +3 to Gold. That’s bowls.
Division 3 Greens hosted Tanunda Black. Given
their respective positions on the table it was expected
to be a tight tussle. As it turned out with all rinks
up and an overall margin of +52 it was a comfort-
able win. Maureen Nolan skipped and supported by
Graham McCormick, Lois Hahn and Roger Leske
gave little away to run out winners by 29 shots. Alan
Fyfe’s team had a comfortable +10 win and with Allan
Master’s team of Luke Buckley, Charles La Nauze
and Mick Fuller winning by 13 the position of the
reigning premiers from the last season is well and
truly cemented at the top of the ladder.
Tiger Black hosted Freeling at the Den. The
Margaret Buckley “Allstars” of Deb Allen, Rosalie
Masters and Rhonda Blaser fell short by two shots
even though they had established a +2 margin
with four ends to go. With Janet Krause and Keith
Semmler’s teams also going down by biggish margins
it was not to be a winning day for Black.
The Swingers are coming on Friday January 28.
Get the old kit out and have some fun. It is open to
bowlers and non-bowlers. A laugh is guaranteed.
The Division 2’s are putting on an Italian Night
on February 4. More information to follow.
This week started with the Tanunda Bowling
Club Ladies making the road trip to Freeling.
The day did not go as planned as they lost 51
Still managed two points with Margaret Hurst
and her team winning by 4 shots.
The table shows that Tanunda are still 2nd but
have a bye this week and might slip down a bit.
The ladies won’t take that laying down and will
be all on the grass to practise because after the
bye the next game is Nuri at Nuri.
In Midweek Orange Kapunda Red came from
under the big top and got some vitamin D and
played Tanunda White at Tanunda.
Tanunda White won 75 to 52 overall with only
one rink up.
Tony Edwards’ rink won 35 to 8 to carry the
rest of the team, but the others only just lost.
Currently they are 3rd and need some much
needed points to keep them in the finals.
This week they are home to Freeling.
In midweek Purple, Tanunda Black hosted
Tanunda won 2 of the 3 rinks to win 72-60.
Looking at the cards it seems Digger and his
team were leading by 4 going into the last end
Not sure what happened but there would be a
good story about it.
Tanunda Black have slipped to 4th. Now this
week needs the points against Lyndoch at Lyndoch
to continue its finals quest.
On Saturday Div 3 Black headed to Nuriootpa
and lost 36 to 88. The results don’t show the true
game that was had.
Div 3 played Angaston at Tanunda and Tanunda
didn’t go much better. Tanunda lost 46 to 57.
Currently Tanunda Black are third and
Tanunda White are 4th and only 3 points sepa-
A very good effort when Tanunda try and have
two mixed teams and there are not too many weeks
when they have the same players in a rink.
The story was a lot happier in the Div 2 camp.
Lyndoch came to Tanunda and Tanunda won 91
All rinks up and all with good solid wins.
Tanunda are now on top of the table and have
to fight tooth and nail to keep that spot.
This week they play Nuri Gold who are second
on the table and it is on the Nuri Greens.
Hopefully the Div 1’s can all be available so as
not to have to take a Div 2 player out of the team.
Div 1 ventured to Freeling and Tanunda won
all four rinks in a 116 to 81 shot win.
Tanunda are sitting in second spot by the barest
of magins. This week players venture to Eudunda.
The Midweek men did a great job with the
dinner on Saturday Night. Thank you for all who
Good luck on the greens and see you all at
Kapunda Division 2 travelled to Eudunda.
Conditions were good as were the greens. All rinks
got off to a slow start but eventually caught up
but the home side proved too strong in the finish
winning by 22 shots. Richard Doecke’s rink played
a solid game and were neck and neck all day but
finished down four shots against M Schutz, Bob
Booth’s rink struggled after lunch and finished
down 13 shots against Ron Hams and Ted Schiller
was too strong against Ruth Scoot finishing down
Division 3 were host to Lyndoch. Conditions
were ideal under the roof for playing bowls.
Tony Scoot’s rink was off to a slow start, but
after a few ends they began to gain control and
went on to victory – 28 shots to 11 shots, whereas
Anita Thiele’s rink were well away at the begin-
ning of the game but were slowly overtaken by
Lyndoch to finish up 17 shots to Lyndoch’s 22.
Grant Campbell’s rink led from the start and by
the end of the game were 23 shots to Lyndoch’s 11.
A great effort from the Kapunda team.
Kapunda Ladies took advantage of a home game
with a 15 shot win against Angaston. The game
on Linda Carter’s rink against Mavis Elsworthy
was close and competitive, with only one shot won
or lost on most ends, Linda finally winning by five
shots. Sondra Franks’ rink had a successful game
against Eileen Argent with a decisive 19 shot win.
Ruth Scoot’s rink found it difficult to convert and
finally went down nine shots.
Kapunda Red vs Tanunda White: Midweek
Kapunda Red played Tanunda White on grass on
a humid Thursday afternoon. Team Hamper, on a
high from last week’s win came crashing down to
earth in an unsightly eight to 35 trouncing. Good
news though for team Trotta and team Gill both
recording close wins, Trotta 24 to 21 and Gill 20 to
19. So some pride salvaged, but only four points.
Kapunda Black vs Eudunda Red: Thursday
Kapunda Black took on Eudunda Red under “The
Lid” at Kapunda. Kevin Absolom’s rink always
seemed to have bowls in the head and scored in
surges finishing strongly to run out winners 27
shots to 11 shots. Bill Phillip’s rink opened with a
seven on the first end and bowled steadily to finish
well ahead 39 shots to six shots. John Colbey’s rink
bowled well, often holding multiple shots only to
see the opposition skipper cut them back or take
shot. They won 20 shots to 17 shots making it an
all rinks up victory 86 shots to 34 shots.
