Mallala gives Owen a shock
Aussie Hoops winds up
FOR the Aussie Hoops kids, this week
will see the grand finale, and I’m sure there
will be lots of fun and games. So make sure
you’re all there!
Pass the word around – a HUGE thank you
to Kirsty, Sascha, Tayla, Tenneal, Kirrily, and
to all the parents who came and helped in any
way with setting up – thank you very much!
Everyone will be analysing the premier-
ship table, no doubt, some more than others.
At the risk of repeating myself, if you are
in the top four, it doesn’t mean that’s how it
will look after grand final night.
Finals are a whole new ball game! And this
is where umpires, coaches, scorers, timers and
clubs need to step it up.
Finals must include ALL club officials out
helping and supporting the players.
Not surprisingly, I saw the same helpers
doing everything again on Friday night. Some
of them are looking a bit weary. Let’s help
In the Under 12s, the Boomers have 11
wins from 11 games and must be favourites
going into finals...and with a win over the
Cheaters, are looking good.

ALL three Division One matches played
last weekend were eye-openers in various
Mallala led the way winning against Owen
on the rinks-up rule despite final scores be-
For Mallala, Rodger Work, having his first
match as skipper, accounted for Tim Hark-
ness (O) 25-18 while Peter Furst (M) had a
comfortable 34-20 win over Glen Bubner (O).
However, this 21-shot advantage was
wiped away with Neil Harkness’ (O) 36-15
win over Greg Tucker (M).
With two rinks up though, Mallala took
seven match points to Owen’s five.
This result sets up a very intriguing finish
to the Division One minor round as explained
in more detail in the preview section below.
It is very rare to see one skipper’s score
equal the total score for all of the opposition’s
rinks but this did happen in the Port Wakefield
Will McPharlin’s (PW) rink amassed 55
shots against Sherri Nicolai’s (W) 7 shots, and
in doing so, equalled the 55 shots that Wasleys
accumulated across all of their three rinks.
In other rinks, Greg McPharlin (PW) won
30-18 against Dave Olive (W) while Wayne
Grady (W) secured 2 rink points for Wasleys
with a 30-15 win over Ray Murphy (PW).
Riverton’s run for a final spot remains on
track following their first win against Hamley
Bridge for the season.
Their win was set up by Mark Griffiths’ (R)
strong 40-15 win over John Bubner (HB) and
helped by Neil Rogers’ (R) 24-19 win over
Cris Donohue (HB).
Hamley Bridge’s rink points came through
Paul Fritz’ 26-22 win against Barry Mullins
So, with two rounds left, Balaklava and
Port Wakefield have secured the top two
positions but now, third and fourth spots are
no longer clear cut.
BOWLS is a summer
sport, but last Saturday’s
hot conditions did certainly
test all bowlers.
But at least, knock wood,
we have almost completed
a second season without
losing a round of matches
through heat or other
So, what notable results
arose out of last Saturday’s
JAKE Foubister, of Two Wells, during Sunday’s
Junior Tennis Tournament at Balaklava.
