Wakey Blue hands Balak Blue a lesson
DIVISION Two leaders, Port
Wakefield Blue, easily accounted for
second placed Balaklava Blue with
an all rinks up, 48 shot win.
Michael Olsen (PWB) defeated
Graham Olsen (BB) 29-11, Steve
Reimers (PWB) was too strong for
Colin Milton (BB), 43-18, and Terry
Cluse (PWB) finished the day off with
a 27-22 win over Lindsay Day (BB).
In the local derby, Mallala White
upset their sister side, Mallala Black,
winning by nine shots despite having
only one rink up.
Malcolm Dunstan (MB) and Keith
McDonald (MB) both gave Mallala
Black a good start with 22-17 and 23-
20 wins over Maurice Secomb (MW)
and John Curnow (MW), respectively.
However, their nine shot advantage
was not sufficient to cover for Geof
Donlon’s (MW) 31-14 win over Mick
In another Division Two match,
Balaklava Red scraped through
against Tarlee White by three shots
with only Peter McPharlin’s rink up
on the day.
Peter’s 31-10 win over John Perry
(TW) covered Brenda Philp’s (BR)
15-32 loss to Des Meyers (TW) and
Chris Cowan’s (BR) 27-28 loss to
Frank Gorey (TW).
The final match between cellar
dwellers Balaklava White and Hamley
Red saw Hamley Red take the honours
by 18 shots.
Les Stott (HR) had a good 35-19
win over Tony Jones (BW) and Colin
Phillips (HR) finished 24-19 up over
Colin Stewart (HW). Balaklava
White’s rink points were gained by
Jim Bastian through his 24-21 win
over Bob Morris (HR).
With the last round awaiting
bowlers this weekend, only top spot
is confirmed with four sides still vy-
ing for the remaining three positions.
Which Division Two sides will
complete the four?
Balaklava Blue is guaranteed to
finish either second or third depending
on the outcome of its match against
sister side Balaklava Red, currently
A 12-0 win for Balaklava Red will
ensure that the side will finish fourth;
any other result will see Balaklava Red
watch with keen interest the outcome
of the Mallala White vs Balaklava
When Balaklava Blue and
Balaklava Red met last, only eight
shots separated the two sides ensuring
this weekend’s clash could be another
Mallala Black has an interesting
match against Tarlee White, played at
Tarlee. Tarlee White won comfortably
by 27 shots when the two sides last
met and should go into this match as
favourites. However, Mallala Black
will be mindful that one rink up is
all that it needs to grab a finals’ spot
and prevent its sister side, Mallala
White, from displacing it should
Mallala White engineer a 12-0 rout
of its opponent Balaklava White,
and should Mallala Black fall 12-0
to Tarlee White.
The final match will see Port
Wakefield Blue finish its minor
round against Hamley Red. Given
Port Wakefield Blue’s consistent
performance over the whole season,
the chance of Hamley Red causing
an upset win here is highly unlikely.

WITH Port Wakefield
Gold having the bye in
Saturday’s Division Three
competition, Owen took
over top spot following
their narrow four shot win
over Tarlee Red.
Bob Hill (O) defeated
Ron Clarke (TR) 33-27
and Ken Warnes (O)
proved too strong for Ian
Rohde, winning 30-15.
Winning rink points for
Tarlee Red was Peter
Dunn who was success-
ful against Maurice Miles
Riverton Black moved
back into the four follow-
ing their 25 shot win over
sister side Riverton White.
Cath Greenslade (RB)
won a tight contest against
Peter Koster (RW) 21-17
while Phil Gates (RB) and
Ann Harrip (RB) secured
comfortable wins – 32-
18 and 26-18 – against
John Glistak (RW) and
Ross Hannaford (RW),
The final match saw
Hamley White take the
points against Wasleys.
Ken Patmore (HW) ac-
counted for John McDon-
nell (W) 27-15, John Parry
(HW) defeated Fritz Fran-
kel (W) 25-22 and Marilyn
Nichols (HW) completed
the job by beating Steve
Wendland (W) 23-18.
Wasleys’ defeat in this
match finishes off their
season with now no chance
of making the finals.
Will Tarlee Red
stay fourth despite
having the bye?
Tarlee Red, with the
bye in the final round,
currently sits fourth. The
only way that it can be
displaced is if Riverton
White is able to defeat
Owen this weekend.
Based on results from
their earlier match, Owen
should enter this match
as firm favourites there-
by eliminating Riverton
White from finals’ par-
ticipation in the process.
Port Wakefield Gold
plays Hamley White is
what will be an important
match for them. While
Hamley White cannot
make the finals, it can
definitely influence the
final standings should it
repeat its defeat of Port
Wasleys cannot make the
finals, it can influence the
final standings by upset-
ting Riverton Black once
again as it did earlier the
So, all eyes will be
watching the respective
Division Three matches to
see which four sides finish
where after the completion
of the minor round.
