The Haus Sport Celebration Dinner Package


Looking to go back-to-back, Christine Keller and Carolyne Edwardes entered the semi-final at Lenswood in fine form.  The early ends saw them skip away to a comfortable lead and were never challenged by the Lobethal pair after the score got to 19-3 at the middle stage.  Christine and Carolyne went on to win 21 – 9. 
The Final against the Lenswood pair again saw Christine and Carolyne get an early break leading 13 – 5 after nine ends.  The rest of the ends gave Lenswood a chance with our girls going off the ‘boil’ but they held on to win 14 – 12.   Congratulations from all our members and supporters.

Our Men’s pair of Phil Nagel and Chris Rowe had a tight tussle against the Meadows pair and finally broke free by the middle of the game and went on to win 13 – 6.
The Final was a different affair against the highly fancied Lobethal team.  The lead changed hands with Phil and Chris getting their noses in front and with the match locked away at eight all after seven ends.  Unfortunately the Lobethal team got their game going and ran out winners 19 – 10.
Congratulations on making the final from all our members and supporters.

It is a credit to our Club to have representatives in both finals.  Christine, Carolyne, Phil and Chris were great ambassadors and played the game in a sportsmanlike manner.  Thank you to all the members who supported the bowlers along the way through to the finals.

Division One Back

After so many close matches, Division One returned to the winners circle against the highly rated Mt Barker. Christine Keller’s rink provided the winning result with the scores locked together with her rink having two ends to play.  Bob Edward’s rink had a serious tussle getting home by three shots whilst Rick Babidge’s rink fought back from a slow start to hit the front with two ends to play but unfortunately went down by three shots.   Good fortune and good bowling saw Christine’s rink win the last end to give Hahndorf a hard fought win.

Division Two did not have similar luck although winning two rinks.  Chris Rowe got home by six shots and Ray Rattray by two.  Bill Robertson’s rink suffered a disappointing loss going down by twenty three shots.   Not a day Bill and his team would like to remember.

After a promising start to the season, Division Three had a difficult day at Mt Barker.  Playing under the dome, all three rinks went down but not without a fight.  Tom Hennessey’s rink got within six shots of their opponents with Tali Button and Ron Batemans’ rinks loosing by twelve and fifteen shots respectively.

Sad Saturday!

Division One travelled to Uraidla with high hopes of returning to the winner’s circle.  Unfortunately they fell shot by six shots.  Bob Edward’s rink had a good win by ten shots but it was not enough to cover Christine and Malcolm Keller’s rinks going down by ten and six shots respectively.

Next week the team meets top placed Lobethal at home.

Division two meets second placed Mt Barker One also at home.

Division Three let their guard down to Uraidla 1 and suffered a twenty three shot loss. Tom Hennessey had a battle all day going down by two shots.  Ron Bateman lost by seven shots whilst Tali Button recovered from a sizable deficit at afternoon tea to loose by fourteen shots.

The team plays seventh placed Mt Barker at Mt Barker and need a win to hold onto their fourth position.

Champion of Champions Pairs

Chris Rowe and Phil Nagel played Woodside’s “Hoppy” and Steve Baker  in the first round with a win 15/12 .They then played second game against Uraidla’s “Runt” and Eddie Erkens with a very close win by one shot played by Chris at the last end. Photo compliments of Val Deeble  

Chris Keller and Carolyne Edwards played Gumeracha and won by two shots. Very even throughout the 12 ends with decider in the last two ends.

Semi and Grand Final to be played at Lenswood again next Sunday. Love to see as many club supporters there to cheer them on.

Division Two consolidates its position

Division Two consolidated its position in the four with a thirteen shot win over fifth placed Uraidla at Hahndorf.  The win puts them four games clear with three matches to go.  Tom Hennessey’s rink had a excellent win by fifteen shots with President, Bill  Robertson also getting home by five shots.  Ron Bateman’s rink had a solid battle but went down by seven shots.

The next three games will be exciting with the team to meet top placed Lenswood at Hahndorf then second placed Woodside at Woodside and finally third placed Lobethal at Hahndorf.  A win over any of these teams will ensure a place in the finals.  Best of luck to Division Two.

It was again heartbreak for Division One with a two shot loss to Uraidla at home.  Holding a one shot lead with Christine Keller’s rink one end to play the team lost by two shots on the last bowl of the day.  Uraidla’s skipper Geoff Deeble was two down with his last bowl to play, put the jack in the ditch for three shots.  Scores in all rinks were close all day with the lead changing hands, one team getting a small break with the other closing the gap.

Bob Edward’s win overcame a lapse in the middle of the game to run out winners by one shot, Christine Keller went down by one shot with Malcolm going down by two.

Unfortunately the loss certainly closed the door on a top four finish but wins are possible the next two weeks when they play fifth placed Oakbank at Hahndorf, seventh placed Mt Pleasant at Mt Pleasant and finally top placed Lobethal at Hahndorf.

Results were:

Division 1 Hahndorf  defeated by Uraidla at Hahndorf             59 – 61

Division One met third placed Gumeracha and following last week’s one shot loss to top placed Mt Barker went down in a nail biting finish by two shots.  The lead changed hands throughout the day with Bob Edward’s rink holding an early advantage only to go down by three shots.  Malcolm Keller’s rink swapped shots with his counterpart and won by the solitary shot.  Christine Keller’s rink never got in front but were never far behind and scored two shots on the final end to finish a creditable draw.

Next week Division One meets fourth placed Uraidla at home so third time lucky – a win and at home?

Division Two fared better at Gumeracha and won by twenty seven shots.  Ron Bateman had an eighteen shot win with Bill Robertson close behind with a seventeen shot win.  Tom Hennessey had a hard tussle and went down by eight shots.

The win kept the team in fourth place and meet fifth place Uraidla at home next week.
