under the dome in Round 15 last Saturday.

However, Uraidla’s Gordon Badenoch spoilt the party for
the hosts with a brilliant 18 shot win over David Skelton

home thrashing bottom side Mt Pleasant by a whopping
Jacqui Baker followed up from her win at Lobethal a week

before coming away to score by 14 shots, 30-16.

led virtually from start to finish over Michael Guthrie.

thrilling 20-shot all draw.

to score an effortless win over Uraidla (2) winning all three

annihilated Ian Badenoch by 24 shots, 31-7

Cobbledick leading 17-7 at the break before romping home

Wayne Browning by only two shots, 16-14.
The biggest margin throughout the game was only four
shots which showed there was nothing between them all
afternoon and a win could have gone either way.
Hahndorf retained top spot with a win over Lobethal,
however, the close 36-34 win will certainly give it something
to think about come finals.
Ron Bateman was just edged out by Lobethal’s Mary
Matthews 16-18, but Jim Howe’s 20-16 defeat of Brian
Tugwell was enough to get Hahndorf over the line.

over Meadows and are still on the tails of second placed
The mercurial John Harrison of Woodside had a hard
earned win over Trevor Griggs 23-19, while team mate

Lobethal, while Woodside battle top side Hahndorf.
