Division 1 has had an inspirational win!

Contrary to Mike Teakle’s predictions, we proved him wrong to win against Tanunda in a Grand Final atmosphere 94-88. The Eudunda players were ecstatic with the result after striving all season for success.

Andrew ‘Frank’ Pfitzner finished 21-25 against Tony Edwards in a see-sawing match, and it was the battle of the Schiller’s when Ted ( Eudunda ) and Des ( Tanunda ) played opposite each in second position in friendly rivalry. Tait Rogers had an awesome start being 18-5 up until Neil Stewart’s team rallied, with Tait finishing on top 21-18. Chris Jones’ team played solidly beating Tim Liersch 26-21with supporters Joy Pfitzner, Marg and Maurice Nietschke urging them on; and Bill Mader and his team performed very well winning 26-24 against Andrew Swain.

Bill and Andrew teams being the last on the green, all eyes were focussed on each bowl delivered with much cheering as Eudunda could feel victory in their veins!

Division 2A played Tanunda at Tanunda and were out bowled 52-108. Gordon ‘Kiwi’ Te.Au, Ruth Scoot and Ron Hams went down to Neil Jaensch, Ian Jaensch and David Armstrong.

Division 3 received a forfeit from Angaston due to the sad passing of Les Schulz, a well-respected member, worker and green-keeper for Angaston club.

The Night Bowlers played on a balmy night, and were pleased to have the presence of the electrical workers again, adding spark to the evening. John Milde’s team won against the OBE’s, and Murray Sauer commented that his team ‘wanted to give the young ones some encouragement!’ The Meal Voucher was won by Ted Schiller, and the wine by Matt Whitford. Please come along and support the Red Cross Night tomorrow (Thursday) night.

Eudunda’s Ruth Scoot, Joy Hams, Doreen Twartz and Betty Pfitzner played the Regional knockout round at Freeling last Sunday against Berri’s Kerry Treloar’s team. Eudunda put pressure on with a 9-2 lead, however Kerry’s skill and experience turned the tables, and won through 21-14 against Eudunda. Well done Eudunda on being very competitive.
