The only team representing Tanunda on
Thursday was the Ladies and they played Freeling
at home on the carpet.
Marg Meertens and her ladies had a close
fought game at the start where the score was
7-6 after 9 ends and then the remaining 13 ends
was split in two halves.
The first half went to Freeling where they won
15 straight shots, developing a lead of 14 shots
after 14 ends and then it was Tanunda’s time to
fight back, out scoring Freeling 13 to 4 over the
last 7 ends.
The end result was a 20-25 victory to Freeling.
Margaret Hursts’ team lost their radar at the
start of the game to be 0-12 down after 6 ends and
then after the next 12 end with the aid of a couple
of 4’s and a 5 they got in front after 18 ends with
the score being 24-16.
They then lost their radar again and lost 9
shots over the next 3 ends dropping a 5 on the
last end to lose 24-25!
Which keeps the saying, it’s not over till the
fat lady sings alive and well!
It was then left to the rink of Jeanne Whitelaw,
Heather Graetz, Marilyn Taylor and Kathy Wallace
to recover the shots that were lost by the other
rinks to achieve victory.
They got out to a great start being 14 to 3 up
after 8 ends and it was looking good but then
Freeling fought back to be 15 all after 17 ends.
Tanunda needed at least 7 shots more in the
final 4 ends for victory and after 20 ends. They
eroded that number to 2 with one end to go.
Then up stepped Heather Graetz who got a
close one about 7.12638495 Inches away from
Kitty (Jack) A.K.A the little white thing.
Then Kathy, who was not to be out done on her
last bowl, decided to put in a resting toucher and
2 shots was scored and victory to Tanunda by 1
shot and a preliminary final next week against
Lyndoch at a venue TBA. So if you’re around come
and support them.
Division 2 hosted Angaston at home on the
grass and all they needed was 1 rink win to main-
tain top spot.
David Armstrong and his rink made sure this
was going to happen by shooting out to a 9 to 3
lead after 5 ends and extending their lead to 22
to 7 after 14 ends.
This lead was pretty much maintained until
the end of the game where the score was 34-22
Des Schiller and his rink also wanted to make
sure that they were going to finish top.
after 11 ends and then for the rest of the ends
scores were level and the result was a 28-18(10
Bernie Wallace and his Rink had the task of
completing a clean sweep.
The game was in the balance when the score
was 10 all after 12 ends.
And then when it was 13 all after 16 ends but
a couple of dropped 4’s hurt and that hindered
them in the win, eventually going down 21-24(3
shots) but a victory was achieved and now they
face Nuri Gold at Tanunda on Saturday for a place
in the Grand Final.
Division 3 White played against Kapunda at
home on the grass.
Warren Schutz and his rink unfortunately kept
their form going when they were 10 all after 11
ends to eventually lose 13-27(14 shots) better
change this around boys as finals in next week.
Brian Hoklas’ rink was also 10 all after 11 ends.
They got in the lead after 18 ends (17-16)
through good bowling but then fortified the lead
in the last few ends, eventually going down 18-
19 (1 shot) Digger Martin’s rink of Will McBride,
John Miegel and Malcolm Paech.
Had the difficult job of recovering at least 15
shots, which they got stuck into by being 10 to
nil up after 5 ends and extended that lead out to
20-2 after 12 ends.
But then they hit a speed bump along the way
and the score was 21-8(13 shots) after 18 ends. But
then the cream rose to the top with them scoring
8 on the last 3 ends to run out winners 29-8 (21
shots) earning them the Rink Of The Week Award
and the victory for Tanunda.
That win puts them in the Finals where they
are playing at Home!
Division 3 Black travelled up to Freeling to
play (well observably Freeling) Marg Meertens
and her rink wanted to make the trip an very
They did this in the best way by winning. They
were 6 all after 6 ends and then decided to get
a lead and increase it out to 10 shots by end 14,
which remained the same until the end where the
scores read 22-12(10 shots).
Mike Schmidt and his merry people were scor-
ing in 1’s at the start but then they achieved their
goal by scoring more than one they increased they
lead out 11 to 6 after 13 ends.
They kept this lead until the end of the game
where it was 17-11 (6 shots) in Tanunda’s favour.
David Pech and his rink got to a good start being
13 to 5 up after 10 ends, which must have been
the point when they remembered the bad joke of
how does Jacob of Israel makes tea? He Brews it!
Because it put them right off their game and
they didn’t finish well and ended up losing 17-25.
But a victory overall was had and they will
also be playing finals against the other Tanunda
team at home in a do or die Final.
May the victor goes the spoils, and the loser will
have to bring their pom poms when they support
the winning team when they play next.
Division 1 hosted Eudunda at home on the
carpet in must win game to play finals.
Ian Graetz was in skipper due to Bradley Pech
being unavailable through Prestige Medley and
it looked like they were seriously missing their
fearless leader by being down 1-12 after 5 ends.
They then had a chat; they worked out they
were all good enough bowlers.
Hence they are in division 1 and they don’t
need him and were going to show it, and show it
they did by getting their skill together by winning
end after end.
They eventually out played the opposition and
recorded a 24 to 19 win (5 shots).
Ian Jaensch and his rink had a tough battle
at the start being 9 all after 9 ends and then a 5
opened up the game and they managed to hold on
to this lead for the rest of the game with the aid
on another 5, the final score was 31-25(6 shots).
Tim Liersch and his rink also wanted to get in
on the party that was happening around them.
The score was level at 8 all after 7 ends.
Then they stepped it up a level and increased
their lead over the course of the game running
out winners 30-21(9 shots).
Tony Edwards’s rink wanted to make it a clean
They also had a close start being 6 all after 8
ends but then the determination of victory came
upon them and started to bowl better and they
got the lead the very next end and never let up
for the remainer of the game running out victors
26-20 and recording a clean sweep.
This win means Tanunda leap frog Eudunda
into fourth spot and play Lyndoch at Lyndoch
next week in a do or die final.
So good luck to all players playing finals, so
get out and practice and bring home the bacon!
Tigers are poised. The Saturday Finals begin
and all look forward to a hard fought campaign.
Pennants Thursday finals: Tiger Black and
Tiger Blue both fell at the first hurdle in the finals
for their respective conferences.
Black travelled to Freeling with Rob Chapman,
Bruce Kernich and Trevor Turner returning with
Roger Mattschoss had a tight contest falling
short by the odd shot whilst Geoff Langley always
battled for a 12 shot loss.
It was as similar story for Blue who went south
to Lyndoch. Alby Wilkinson with Kevin Harrison
and Milton Medlow finishing up by one shot.
Dave Marner and his team were a chance but
finally succombed by 3 shots.
Wayne Williams and his team were up at the
break but then dropped three 4’s to finish down
by 7 shots.
Saturday Division 1: Tiger One visited
Freeling for their last minor round game.
With two rinks down and Wayne Williams hav-
ing a tie it was left to Adam Forbes with his team
of Rodney Garret, Trevor Billing and Geoff Langley
to prove the fifference.
A +16 win to Adam left Tigers up overall by 9
shots. The minor premiers now have it before them
as they embark on the finals campaign.
Division 2: Gold Two were at Kapunda and
in a tight tussle.
Peter Buckley and his team came from behind
to score a 2 shot win.
Roger Mattschoss took the honours by 8 shots
and did enough to cover the 5 shot loss by Sean
Hyland and his team.
The overall margin of 5 shots was closer than
expected. It was a good preparation for their fi-
Black Two hosted fourth placed Lyndoch.
It was a preview for the upcoming semi final.
Trevor Elix and his team found it tough finally
falling short by 18 shots.
This was matched by Pauline Collyer and her
team of Kingsley Bullock, Steve Kurtz and Rob
Warnest who scored a good win with 16 shots up.
Alan Fyfe and his team had a good outing with
a +10 win. Well done to all.
Next week the draw of the cards will be in-
teresting and may influence the outcome of the
knock out semi final.
Division 3: Tiger Green the runaway leaders
of Division 3 had a tight contest at Eudunda.
Neil Collyer, filling in for Alan Fyfe, and his
