Turkey Triples a success
• From back page
For the first time this season,
Balaklava turned the tables on
Port Wakefield to win comfortably
by 26 shots.
Peter Thompson (B) had a solid
37-12 win over Greg McPharlin
(PW) while Barry Taylor (B) snuck
in with a 22-21 win against Ray
Murphy (PW). Trevor Clifford (B)
and Will McPharlin (PW) shared
the rink points in their clash, ty-
Mallala had the bye.
So, going into the final minor
round for the season, Balaklava,
Port Wakefield and Owen will
feature in the Division One finals
but will it be Wasleys or Riverton
that joins them?
Which side will finish
The only match that will have
no bearing on the battle for fourth
spot sees Hamley Bridge home to
As mentioned in a previous
article, this will be the first season
for at least a decade that Hamley
Bridge has not played in Division
With so many of its premier-
ship side leaving the club, Hamley
Bridge has spent this season re-
building and has done very well to
rack up seven wins for the season,
so far, given the players that it has
So, their final match for this sea-
son pits them against Balaklava, a
side with which it has had many
epic clashes over past seasons.
However, on this occasion, it is
unlikely that Hamley Bridge will
cause an upset here considering
that Balaklava has beaten them
by 55 and 21 shots, respectively,
earlier in the season.
The Owen/Wasleys match will
be keenly watched as its result
will have a significant impact on
whether Wasleys, or Riverton, will
For Wasleys, it is simple – a
WIN will secure fourth spot, and
should it lose, then Wasleys must
hope that Mallala does it a favour
in their match against Riverton.
In earlier matches between
Owen and Wasleys, Owen won
the first by 15 shots with Wasleys
taking the honours by four shots,
despite having only one rink up,
in the return match.
Based upon Owen’s perfor-
mance against Riverton last week
and their better form over the past
month, compared with Wasleys’
form, Owen will enter as firm
favourites in this match.
The other incentive for Owen
is that should Wasleys win, then
the two sides will meet again next
week in the first semi-final.
For Riverton to play finals, its
first priority is to win its match
against Mallala this weekend
and hope that Owen does defeat
Wasleys as well. In earlier match-
es, Riverton won the first match
against Mallala by two shots with
one rink up while, in the second,
Riverton won by 15 shots with
two rinks up.
Taking recent form into account
and Riverton’s performances
against Mallala during season,
Riverton is favoured to win this
weekend and, in doing so, hope-
fully sneak into the finals.
