THIS IS WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT PECKERS!

PREMIERS

PROUDLY carrying the spoils of victory – APFL premiership pennant, trophy and shield, are (from left) Aaron Cocks, Scott Farrell, Brad Michael and Derek Friedrichs.

THEY paraded around Virginia oval with the spoils of victory – a flag, a shield and a cup brimming with emotions. This was one of Balaklava Football Club’s finest moments; the celebration of not one, but two 2011 Adelaide Plains Football League premierships in A grade and Reserves, both against Virginia – and on Virginia’s home ground. The players walked tall before the green and gold army of supporters who had packed the ground to watch their club from the start of the day, supporting the junior and senior colts, who could not claim victory in their grand finals, losing to Mallala and Two Wells. Then there was the moment in the innersanctum, shared by only a privilegd few cramming into the change rooms. With the premiership trophy standing tall on a floor stained with the blood, sweat and tears of the two premiership teams, – and yes, those of the younger Peckers – A

grade coach, Stuart Lamond, told his players what such a victory meant – the club’s first A grade flag since 2000. “You will remember it for the rest of your lives. This day will always stay with you,” he told a packed and silent Balaklava room after the game which the Peckers won by 47 points. The players and supporters savoured the moment before beginning celebrations which started at Virginia oval, continued at Balaklava Sports Club later, and later still to various hotels and businesses in Balaklava and beyond. And still it continued on Monday, Tuesday– and today! In netball, Hummocks won the A1 title, defeating Balaklava 42-30. It was a grim day on the field for Virginia – but the club and its members worked hard to cater for the huge crowd that packed the ground, enjoying the day. n Turn to our massive 16-page Grand Final cover, starting page 13.

NEWS v District

Passing of printing legend Former Plains Producer employee, Dorothy McCracken (nee Braunack) passed away at Balaklava hospital on Wednesday, September 7, aged 85. Dorothy began work at the Plains Producer on April 1 in 1946, aged 20, and created history when she began as this nation’s only woman linotype operator. Working for proprietor, Hector Henstridge, she first earned one pound 10 shillings (now $3) a week. Her appointment caused a stir with unions who frowned upon women performing those types of jobs, when women were seen as inferior to men. Dorothy, who worked at the Producer for around 30 years, also did accounts, often returning $ at midnight * at night to finish her jobs and leaving on Tuesday when the paper was ‘put to bed’. CASHBACK VIA REDEMPTION In 1978, at the age of 52, she married council overseer, Sid (Mac) McCracken and about two years later Dorothy retired.

All aboard in bus protest

Garry Simon at the wheel with passengers Shirley Reljich, Judy Barber and wife Christine Simon – and LEFT, making a point with messages plastered on the bus.

A

BUS from Balaklava joined about 80 buses choking the streets of Adelaide on Monday as the Bus and Coach Association of South Australia led a Bus Industry Action Rally to Parliament House. The rally was to protest and challenge the decision by the State government to favour large Victorian-based company, Australian Transit Enterprises, with a majority of the regional school bus contracts, which will put local operators out of business. Balaklava bus contractor, Garry Simon, took one of Taylor and Simon’s fleet to the North terrace rally. “It was a good rally and we had a lot of support from people in Adelaide when they realised what was going on,” Mr Simon said. “It was the first one I have been to but I thought it was really good.” About 10 buses parked in front of Parliament House, while the rest circulated around the streets, slowing traffic. Mr Simon said there were also regional contractors from Kadina, Adelaide Hills, Murray Bridge and the state’s South East. “There was a huge contingent of buses,” he said. “Now we’re just waiting for an outcome, if any, and preparing for the worst.” Family First MLC, Rob Broken-

shire, has been hot on the heels of the government since the issue raised its head, campaigning for communities to petition against the decision. “Family First has been more than happy to prepare and circulate these petitions across outer metropolitan and regional South Australia protesting against the short-sighted and mean-spirited decision of the Rann-Weatherill government to cut out local operators sometimes in

BALAKLAVA

favour of one large operator,” Mr Brokenshire said. “These school bus contracts help operators provide a range of other services to senior citizen, Probus, sporting and similar clubs, bus hire, coach trips and other public transport. “Without the school bus contracts many of these small family-owned local business operators and their employees face a bleak future

Mr Brokenshire still wants further investigations into the impact the decision will have on rural communities. “No regional impact assessment was done for these decisions despite the significant impact this will have in the near-urban regions like Adelaide Hills and the Fleurieu Peninsula, but also further out in the Mallee, Mid North, Yorke Peninsula and South East,” he said.

SPECIAL FEATURE visitors to tailor their own program for the day, choosing eight sessions to attend from more than 20 session options. Among some of the high profile speakers at this year’s event is New Zealander, Foundation for Arable Research research coordinator, Nick Poole, who has undertaken some recent research on stem rust in wheat, a topic that is likely to be particularly pertinent in South Australia this growing season. New South Wales Department of Primary Industries senior research agronomist, Dr Neil Fettell, will speak about making the most of soil moisture, with time of sowing, sowing rates, row spacing and nitrogen use among some of the issues associated with this topic. Pinery farmer, plant breeder and agricultural consultant Dr Andrew (Andy) Barr will be the lunch time guest speaker. Andy brings to Hart a wealth of experience including 27 years as a plant breeder during which time he released and contributed to the development of more than 25 varieties of oats, barley and wheat. He returned to the family farm in 2003, but continues to be involved in agricultural research through plant breeding trials, served on the GRDC Southern Panel 2005-2011, was a board member of ABB Grain from 2006-2009 and has undertaken recent consultancy work in wheat breeding programs in the United Kingdom, Mexico and India. These are just some of Andy’s achievements,

and his lunch time address will focus on national and international agricultural research and development, global trade in agricultural commodities and the future of farming in SA. A huge range of other trials and speakers complete the program, with everything from a historic barley variety demonstration, a new group B tolerant crop trial and phosphorus trial and all the latest in varieties of wheat, durum, barley, oats, triticale, canola, pulses, pastures and weed control.

DR Neil Fettell will speak about how to best utilise stored water in crops. Hart Field-Site Group trials manager, Peter Hooper, said the variety and access to renowned leaders in grains research as well as other growers who have first hand experience is what makes the Hart Field Day one of the leading agronomy field days in Australia. “We provide such an independent opportunity for growers to view a really big range of varieties, fertiliser and herbicide options and trial results,” he said.

“It is leading edge information and there’s no pressure to buy anything, it’s a neutral environment. The access to researchers and speakers of the calibre we have at Hart and the opportunity to ask questions and chat informally with these experts is something you don’t get anywhere else. “There is such a wide range on offer, there’s no excuse that any farmer wouldn’t be able to pick up some new information at Hart, it’s really a one stop shop.” There will also be a wide range of static displays including the Rocky River Ag Services roadshow showing off the new flexicoil seeders, as well as grain marketers and other groups. The day gets underway next Thursday with gates opening at 9am and the welcome and official opening at 10am. Sessions begin at 10.30am. Admission is $30 (students $5), with entry entitling visitors to a bronze membership to the Hart Field-Site Group, membership upgrades are available on the day (credit card facilities available). A comprehensive Hart Field Day guide is also included. Full catering is available throughout the day (cash sales only) and a refreshment tent will operate after the event. The Hart Field Day will be held 10 kilometres north of Blyth on the Blyth to Brinkworth Road and is well signposted. Bus and group tours are welcome. For more details, go to the Hart Field Site Group website www.hartfieldsite.org.au or contact Sandy Kimber on 0427 423 154 or email admin@ hartfieldsite.org.au.

Poultry producers and other bird owners are reminded to review their biosecurity measures following the highly infectious avian paramyxovirus virus recently found in pigeons in Victoria. If an outbreak is declared, you will be required to follow biosecurity instructions issued byBiosecvurity SA. Chief veterinary officer with Biosecurity SA, Dr Rob Rahaley, said while there had been no reports of the virus in South Australia, the fact it had killed pigeons in suburban Melbourne and Shepparton posed the potential for the virus being transmitted here. “We are strongly advising any pigeon fanciers to cease movement of their birds until further notice,” Dr Rahaley said. Poultry producers were also advised to take action to prevent contact between poultry, turkeys, ratites (flightless birds such as emus and ostriches)

with wild birds or pigeons, both directly and indirectly, for example via feed and water. Victorian authorities are carrying out investigations and properties have been quarantined. Vaccines to control the disease are also being investigated. Affected pigeon flocks have experienced high mortality after displaying lethargy, gastrointestinal and neurological signs. Bird owners should secure feed and water and ensure wild birds cannot gain access; prevent contamination by faeces or other animal waste Visitors/employees who have been in contact with other birds should not be allowed entry unless they take precautionary measures, such as showering, changing clothes and shoes etc. If any unsual signs are noticed in birds, contact your veterinarian or the Animal Disease Watch hotline on 1800 675 888.

Seasoned Balaklavian caravan travellers David Anderson and Beryl Sandow spent more than two months travelling around Darwin and Katherine, seeing the sights, including a flight over Lake Eyre and some barrumundi fishing. While in Darwin, David FORMER Plains Producer journalist Lauren met up with former district Parker, with Beryl Sandow at Anna Creek station. barley agent who many

locals may remember, Brian May, who now lives in Murray Bridge. Then while in Alice Springs watching the Henley on Todd dry land boat race, David and Beryl met up with Trevor and Lynette Dall from Kybunga. And while travelling the Mail Run 12 hour day tour adventure, David and Beryl stopped at Anna Creek station, where they met up with former Plains Producer journo Lauren Parker. It’s definitely a small world. More travel tales next winter!

‘Shipwreck’ on the Wakefield

We know it was wet in December, but it appears there has been a recent flooding of the River Wakefield near Smith’s Rocks with a sighting of an apparent shipwreck. Local farmer John Michael was passing by when he got the shock of his life - actually the laugh of his day! The boat resembles Scruffy the tug boat so if anyone will admit to losing their bath toy, please contact John.

CRIME STOPPERS 1800 333 000 n CALL 131 444 outside business hours or 000 in an emergency SNOWTOWN Police arrested a man for allegedly engaging police in a pursuit, misuse of a motor vehicle, committing acts to endanger another, driving while disqualified, driving an unregistered motor vehicle and refusing to submit to a blood alcohol test on Saturday. The man was refused police bail and will remain in custody until he attends court. He had his vehicle impounded for 28 days. PORT WAKEFIELD Police reported a 15-year-old youth for allegedly assaulting another boy causing him to lose consciousness on Friday night. CLARE A 24-year-old man was reported for driving while allegedly exceeding the prescribed amount of alcohol on Saturday. He returned a positive reading of 0.136, he was issued with a six month instant loss of licence and has had his motor vehicle impounded for 28 days. • Another man also was reported after allegedly returning a reading of 0.162, which is more than three times the legal limit. • Police also reported a woman for allegedly driving while unlicensed and exceeding the prescribed amount of alcohol. Her reading was 0.146. She was also issued with an instant loss of licence for six months and had her car impounded for 28 days.

THE driver escaped with his life from this damaged vehicle. IT was a lucky escape for all involved in a four-vehicle crash on the Augusta Highway, near Beaufort, on Friday afternoon. Local CFS crews who attended the scene believed it was extremely fortunate no one was killed in the accident, which halted traffic on the highway for several hours. A car, four-wheel-drive, van and a semi-trailer were involved. One of the drivers was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital by

helicopter in a serious but stable condition with leg injuries. Two other victims were also conveyed to the Snowtown and Balaklava Hospitals by ambulance. CFS crews redirected traffic travelling south through Nantawarra and Balaklava, while north-bound drivers were diverted around the scene on a nearby gravel road. Major Crash Investigators were on the scene and are working to determine the cause of the accident.

Dublin ‘dossiers’ History group gathers World War I records THE complete service record documents, known as dossiers, of 76 war veterans from Dublin have finally arrived after they were purchased by the Dublin History Group in December. A serviceman’s dossier is a collection of papers providing a detailed account of a soldier’s service. The dossiers were bought with the assistance of a $1897 grant through the State government’s ANZAC Day Commemoration Fund. Dublin History Group president, Pat Thompson, said some dossiers were unavailable. “There are another 12 names on our war memorial that, to date, we are unable to find any dossier records for, although the names are listed in other official documentation,” she said. “Also, an additional 10 veterans’names have been discovered that we did not find when the original name research was done for the area’s monument that was dedicated and unveiled in the Dublin Lions Park in 2003.”

Next on the history group’s agenda is organising secure storage for the dossiers. “When we know the correct size and design of the cabinet to safely store the dossiers in, we intend to apply for a grant through the Veteran Affairs Department for a Saluting Their Service grant for the finance to fund a specially designed and built cabinet,” Mrs Thompson said. The names of all the WW1 veterans the group has dossiers for, will be listed in the November/December Dublin Dispatch. Additional WW1 items include a framed collection of 12 soldiers’ photos, along with the Dublin and Lower Light Rolls of Honour and two certificates. There is also the framed WW2 Fighting Forces Comfort Fund Embroidery and photograph of HMAS Sydney. “We have a collection of both WW1 and WW2 veterans’photographs from the Hundred of Dublin and Lower Light,” Mrs Thompson said. “The history group members

are always very pleased to accept additional photos or copies of additional veterans to add to this collection.” When The Dublin History Group officially takes over the lease on the Dublin Institute all the Group’s collection of donated memorabilia, photographs, historical records, maps will be taken to the Institute and displayed permanently in purpose-built glass fronted and glass shelved units for all residents and visitors to view. “At this stage the committee only has ideas of how the displays will be arranged, as until every thing is unpacked, and sorted there really is no idea what will go where,” Mrs Thompson said. She said the setting up of the displays is a massive project. “It definitely will not happen over night – but it will happen,” Mrs Thompson said. • ARE you researching the war records of relatives?

‘mentally vulnerable’ says report:

Camilleri murder: Man, 28, charged

Local children struggle with development A steering committee has been formed in the Wakefield region to help address “concerning” results from Balaklava children in the 2009 Australian Early Development Index (AEDI). Dale Gathercole, director of Balaklava Community Children’s Centre (BCCC), is one of the committee members, along with others from BCCC and government members. “The results from children in the Wakefield council region were quite concerning,” Dale said. The AEDI is a population measure of young children’s development. In 2009, teachers completed the AEDI for 72 children living in the Wakefield District Council region. In the area of physical health and wellbeing, 65 per cent of children were on track – but about 20 per cent were designated “mentally vulnerable.” The AEDI measures chil-

POLICE arrested and charged a 28-year-old man from Salisbury on Friday with the murder of Edward Joseph Camilleri, whose body was found on a Two Wells property on August 31. Detectives from Holden Hill Criminal Investigation Branch had been investigating the murder since. Mr Camilleri’s body was officially identified last Wednesday. Police will allege the accused, knew Mr Camilleri. A SAPOL statement said it was not a random crime. The arrested man appeared in court last week. “We wish to take this opportunity to thank the community for information that has been provided to date,” the SAPOL statement said. Anyone with further information about this incident is urged to contact Bank SA Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or on-line at www. sa.crimestoppers.com. au.

Sally Crowther reports: dren in their first year of full time school on physical health and wellbeing, social competence, emotional maturity, language and cognitive skills and communications and general knowledge. Results also were concerning with low percentages of children being on track with social competence at 70 per cent, emotional maturity at 67.8 per cent and language skills, 66.7 per cent. Like a census, it involves collecting information to help create a snapshot of child development in communities across Australia. BCCC was thrilled to be aided with their purpose by successfully applying for a $2000 Federal government ‘Building Better Communities for Children community facilitation’ grant. “We need to find out what services families need, and also what they use and find

helpful within the community,” Dale said. AEDI local planning advisor at the Department of Education and Children’s Services, Sam Luddy, is also on the steering committee. “The committee’s role is to inform other organisations about AEDI, collect views from young families about services for parents and young children in the area, take this information by engaging parents and feeding it back to people who can make a difference,” Mr Luddy said. To get results, the steering community also plans to include Wakefield Regional Council, service providers,

State and Federal members in the area, formal community groups and more importantly, families living in the community. The committee will have a stall at the upcoming Balaklava show on September 24, handing out surveys to young families to gain more insight. “We want to reconnect with families and find out what they believe is necessary in the development of their children,” Dale said. The committee is now hoping to receive another grant in order to build a new room onto the centre which can bring the community together and get them talking about what will

make a difference for families. “We need a central location in Balaklava where we can form a strong partnership and listen to families,” Dale said. Federal Member for Wakefield, Nick Champion, has also announced grants of up to $5000 to assist child care centres in the Wakefield Electorate to improve the quality of their services. “The funding will improve outcomes for the most vulnerable children in the Wakefield Electorate by providing support directly to services operating in areas of highest need,” Nick said. BCCC will be applying for funding from this grant.

Cure for couch potato With summer fast approaching and the weather warming up people begin to think about ways to shape up and get rid of the winter wobble, a leading vet has revealed that owning a pet may be the motivator we all need to get off the couch and onto the jogging track. Dr Mark Perissinotto, head vet at VetShopAustralia.com.au said pets encourage people to be active and to take part in a daily outdoors exercise routine that generally involves cardiovascular exercise such as walking or jogging. “An active life not only helps people to feel and look good but it also improves cardiovascular health, cholesterol count and blood pressure.” Dr Perissinotto said. “Owning a pet can give purpose to exercising and motivates people to be consistent in keeping up with fitness routines – as every pet owner knows – a well exercised pet is also a much happier and better behaved pet”. Dr Perissinotto also believed that in the new age computer based generation owning a pet strongly encourages children to step away from games and television and spend more time outdoors playing and having fun with their furry friend.

Rain vital for a good finish A SOLID rain in the coming fortnight would be the icing on the cake for the region’s broad acre farmers as crops begin to come out in head. The foundation has been laid for another rewarding season, with reasonable winter rainfall providing crops with a reasonable kick-start. Agriculture Minister, Michael O’Brien, announced last week the state’s grain crop is on track for a slightly above-average harvest of about 7.66 million tonnes, according to the latest crop estimate. He said this is above the average of 6.5 million tonnes and an increase on the July crop estimate of 6.75 million tonnes. The current estimated farmgate value of the predicted crop is $1.93 billion. “We need good spring rain, with at least average to above average falls required during September and October, to maintain a potential above average grain haul,” Mr O’Brien said. “Thankfully, most parts of the state received good summer and early autumn rainfall, which

Les Pearson reports:

boosted early crop growth through stored soil moisture, as we generally received below average rain during the winter. “If we receive a good finish to the season, farmers will come out on top, despite the challenges posed by weather, pests and diseases. “It will be terrific for South Australia, especially regional communities, if farmers can follow last year’s record harvest with an above average result this year.” Barunga Gap grower, Paul McCormack, said he had virtually no rain on the weekend, with heavy scattered showers about. “I had to put up with the rain while watching the footy at Robertstown but on the way home, the further I drove, the drier it got,” he said. Mr McCormack said signs are still reasonable, with some good subsoil moisture still present, which was not the case in drier years such as 2008. “I’d just like to see another 10

to 20mm on the horizon, just to finish things off,” he said. South Hummocks farmer, Richard Taylor, said about one millimetre fell on Sunday night but he would also like a finishing fall to seal the deal. “The crops a fortnight ago were looking like they had really good potential,” he said. “We wouldn’t want to go a week or two without any rain.” Mr Taylor said early crops are fairing the best at this stage and are coming out in head, while peas are also proving fairly resilient. PIRSA’s latest Crop and Pasture Report shows seasonal conditions have been ideal for canola, with above-average yield potential in most districts and a buoyant price outlook. Lentil crops across the state also look good, with low disease levels, while ryegrass plant numbers are higher due to the favourable seed set last season. South Australia’s crop production for 2010-11 was a record 10.34 million tonnes, contributing more than $3 billion to the state’s economy.

FARMERS are now able to trade on the carbon market after the Federal government passed its Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI) through parliament, to establish a regulated carbon offsets market in Australia. Member for Wakefield, Nick Champion, welcomed the legislation, which gives farmers, forest growers and other landholders access to international and domestic carbon markets. “The legislation gives farmers and landholders the certainty to invest in new approaches to reduce carbon pollution,” Mr Champion said. “It will enable farmers and other landholders to receive carbon credits for reducing emissions from livestock and fertiliser use, or increasing carbon in soils or vegetation.” Carbon credits generated by landholders and farmers through the CFI now could be sold to companies, like those currently participating in the National Carbon Offset Standard,

offseting their carbon pollution. “The CFI is underpinned by rigorous standards to ensure offsets are robust and (it) contains rules to safeguard food production, local communities and the environment,” Mr Champion said. “Regional communities have already started to identify carbon farming opportunities and we’re expecting agriculture industries to come forward with more innovative ideas for reducing carbon in the coming months and years. “The government is working in partnership with industry and scientists to develop more methodologies such as reducing emissions from landfills, manure management, savanna burning, and management of methane from livestock.” The Administrator for the Carbon Farming Initiative will begin operation later this year, with eligible projects able to backdate credits to July 1, 2010. Further information can be found online at www.climatechange.gov.au/cfi.

Ag Bureau receives Landcare funding

FEDERAL Member for Wakefield, Nick Champion, also announced Landcare funding for the region to assist with two ongoing projects in the Mid North. The Agricultural Bureau of South Australia will receive $237,160 to help reduce the risk of soil for acidification in the Northern and Yorke region of the state. The bureau will also receive a further $183,700 to as-

sist with improving soil carbon levels and decreasing erosion. Mr Champion said Landcare brings farmers, land managers and the broader community together to work on important environmental and agricultural projects. “These collaborations work to restore and better manage our landscapes, improve farm practices and care for our land,” he said.

“Incredible, but it’s a fact!” - sporting history * A cricketer died in 1751 through an abscess caused by a blow from a cricket ball - he was Frederick, Prince of Wales, son of George the Second. * In Taunton, England, in 1888 a man named W. Adlam batted when he was 104 years old! HAMMER THROW * When Dr P O’Callaghan threw a 16-lb. hammer with a four-foot handle 198 feet 8 1/2 inches at Fermoy, Ireland, in August 1937, and so created a record which stands today, he probably didn’t realise that this form of sport is the direct descendant of that practised by David with a sling back in Biblical days. They had stone throwers par excellence in those times. We are told in Holy Writ that “among all

After the match, 11 one-legged men ran a race over 100 yards for 20 guineas, and the first three home shared the prize. * In 1744 one of the laws of cricket stated that “if ye bail be hanging on to one stump though ye ball hit ye wicket - it is not out” * Nine wickets in nine balls was the record made by Paul Hugo, a South African schoolboy (must have thought it was nine pins). * The Worcester England County cricket ground in 1889 was sown with TURNIP seed in error.

It struck a rock, rebounded to the green 50 yards away and dropped into the tin! * The odds against a player “Holing-in-one” are 107,501 to ONE. * A golf ball made of gold would weigh 1 1/2 pounds and would shatter any driver used to hit it.

Heritage Highlights

This is the title of an old book I found recently, so sit back and enjoy some amazing sporting facts from years gone by. CRICKET * One of history’s strangest cricket matches was played at Montpelier Gardens, Walworth, England, on August 9 1796, between 11 Greenwich Naval pensioners with one leg, against eleven with one arm - the prize was one thousand guineas. The “One-legs” opened and scored 93 runs - the “One-arms” could only manage 42 in their first innings. In the second innings, “One-legs” had 6 members bowled out for 60 runs, so they finished the first day 111 runs ahead of their opponents. Next morning the match was completed and the “One-legs” ran out win-

while flying across the lawn in their back yard. To think a song by the hugehaired diva tingled the hairs on the necks of burly NRL supporters still makes me laugh. But the AFL did its greatest injustice ever, when it introduced Angry Anderson of Rose Tattoo fame, on board what appeared to be a bat-mobile styled vehicle, to sing “Bound For Glory” at the 1991 grand final at Waverly Park. I would rather sit through every Sex and the City episode ever made than watch that seven-minute debacle again. For those of you of a younger vintage and have never seen what took place, it is worth a look on You Tube, for education purposes. I do not recommend watching it more than once, it is known to cause tone-deafness and cases of colour blinding. Tune in next week, coz I’m Mr Brightside.

FINALS 2011

THE Grand Balaklava claims its first flag since 2000 PETER Grand ARGENT’S Final A GRADE report

CLAIMING the trophies for the 2011 premiership are Balaklava A grade coach, Stuart Lamond, and captain, Hayden Walker, watched by APFL president, Brad Busch.

A

potent 10-goal second half ensured the Balaklava Peckers were celebrating their first premiership glory since 2000 well into the wee hours of the weekend. This contest had only a single straight kick separating the combatants at the long interval, but Balaklava started to break down the Rams’ resistance in the premiership (third) quarter. Then to stifle any chance of a Virginia revival, Glenn Dawson put his stamp on the game, with three last quarter goals, and then distributed a precision pass to Ben Catford for his fourth. The final winning margin was 47 points. “Certainly, it was the third quarter that won the game for us,” Balaklava premiership coach, Stuart Lamond, said. “It is fair to say the game was a pretty scrambly affair, maybe due to the conditions and the intensity of a Grand Final. “I felt at three quarter time it was going to take a fair bit for Virginia to run over the top of us.” Early in the game, the Peckers continued with their goal kicking “yips” from the second semi final. They kicked miserably in front of goal in the opening term, finishing with 1.5 in the first stanza, while the Rams with Brendan Nicklaus as a good target kicked 4.1. There was a reversal in momentum during the second quarter when Balaklava kicked 4.3 to 1.1. The wind wasn’t a major influence as it was blowing virtually across the ground, with maybe a slight advantage going to the northern end of the ground. “The wind wasn’t a big factor,” Lamond confirmed. “It was more like a cross breeze and really didn’t help either side “Maybe there was a slight advantage to the northern end, but that was minimal.” With Stuart Lamond and Dawson as strong marking targets in attack, and plenty of numbers surging forward, goals came at regular intervals in the third term for the minor premiers. Their 5.4 in this quarter kicking towards the netball courts end, to 2.2 by the Rams, set up the victory. In this term, after a dubious marking attempt was paid, Virginia forward Nicklaus achieved a personal milestone, kicking his 100th goal for the season and celebrated it with a fist pump. The first of Dawson’s three goals in the final term ensured the result and in the final 15 minutes of the game, the score-line blew out. It was icing on the cake when defender Les Pearson kicked the final goal of the contest to cap off a good personal day’s work. The final 67-point margin didn’t reflect the hardness of the contest for most of the day, but equally the Peckers’ 30 scoring shots to Virginia’s 13 explained which team was the better and more deserving side to collect the title on the day. Long term recruit at the club, Ben Catford, was terrific in the middle and pushing forward to kick four goals. There was an argument for

Balaklava 15.15 (105) d. Virginia 9.4 (58) him to be awarded the best player trophy instead of Dawson, who kicked 5.4, was exciting, athletic and acrobatic at full forward, especially in the second half. Hayden Walker in a congested game, where there were a number of stoppages and ball ups, was the best big man in the contest, exposing the Ram deficiencies in this area. Les Pearson, who the year before played in the Berri centenary season premiership in the Riverland competition gave the Peckers a lot of rebound from defence. Half back Jason Henderson and Lachie Michael both had important possessions and critical times of the contest. “‘Whiskey’ was moved into ruck at quarter time and was vital at the stoppages,” Lamond explained. “Glenn’s second half was sensational and ‘Cat’ (Ben Catford) was good all day. Those three players were the difference in the end. “Derek Friedrichs did another job on Brendan Nicklaus in the second half, and in these last three games I reckon Nicklaus only kicked eight or nine goals, which from our perspective was excellent. “The half back line has been the underlying strength of the side all season. “Les Pearson, ‘Benny’ (Brenton Lamond) and Jason Henderson were again very important in the win.”

Jason Henderson earns a tough free kick after attention from Emmanueal Tsimiklis Virginia’s on field leader Michael Young was tremendous all day, working industriously at each of the stoppages and pushing the ball forward relentlessly against the odds. Whilst not quite as brilliant as he had been in his previous two games Caleb Howell still had a some impact, especially in the first half, where he kicked two goals. Athletic big man Chris James completed gamefully all contest, while senior journeyman Josh Denengelse never stopped trying and running hard, although he was caught a couple of times.

Anthony Seccafien continued his strong finals series across half back and the two aboriginal lads Anthony Johnston and Graham Rigney both had their moments as well. After being the best two teams all winter, Stuart Lamond’s Peckers finished its season by beating Virginia three times in four weeks, firstly to acquire the minor premiership and then the ultimate prize. This win confirmed Balaklava as the best side in Adelaide Plains football during 2011 and consigned Greg Phillips’ Rams to a second successive Grand Final defeat. www.plainsproducer.com.au

2011 GRAND FINAL v NETBALL

Eaglettes earn the crown Two excellent quarters of powerful netball in the middle of the Adelaide Plains Netball Association A1 grand final, ensured Hummocks collected the 2011 netball crown. In the game between the best two sides all year, the match against Balaklava was still on a knife’s edge at the initial interval, before the minor premiers exerted control of the contest. Hummocks, with goal attack Tegan Nottle excelling, scored 15 goals to seven in the second term and a further 11 goals to six in the third quarter to set up this strong victory. They increased a small twogoal advantage at quarter time, to a 10-goal lead at the half and then further increased this to 15 at lemons. In the last quarter the Peckers rallied, but Hummocks won the title as 2011 APNA premiers by a convincing 12-goal margin. “In what has been a harder year to fill sides than most people will appreciate, it was awesome to come away with a convincing win like that,” Hummocks playing coach, Samantha Nicholls said. “It was always expected to be a tight first quarter and this proved to be so. “But the second and third quarter is really where we put our foot down. “As I said before the game, our team work was what was going to get us through, and this showed on the day. “Our intensity on the Bal-

aklava side as a team unit was phenomenal. “They had many held balls and it was due to our tight one-on-one pressure. “We spoke after the second semi final and knew some things we needed to implement to make our job easier on the court, and all the girls stuck at this. “Balaklava made a bit of a come-back in the fourth quarter, and when we needed some intercepts, Mel Moulds went on fire. “I couldn’t wait to see her in this game, and she delivered.” Best on court in the decider was received by Hummocks goal attack, Tegan Nottle who was impressive in both finals games, while Beth Germein and Erin Brundell also were important. “This award shows how Tegan has really stepped up to the plate and owned that goal attack bib in the A1 side,” Nicholls continued. “Erin Brundell’s talk and support on the court was awesome on Saturday and the combination of her and Beth Germein feeding into the goalies was spot on. “Beth ran all day and played the true captain’s game, leading from the front. “She sometimes thinks she

isn’t doing that much, but she is definitely putting in the hard yards. “Then there was the wall defence of Lisa Powell, Bonnie Nicholls and Mel Moulds. “Those girls amaze me. “They played tight one-on-one defence as well as switching it up to offline defence and really stopped Balaklava’s attack line.” Balaklava coach, Michelle Williams, who announced her retirement after the game, explained the Hummocks defence was awesome all game. “We couldn’t flow the ball down the court and get it into the attack line with any fluency,” Williams confirmed. “They proved to be the strongest team all year and were the better side on the day.” Balaklava’s best player in the loss was goal keeper Chelsea Koch, who held up strongly against the Hummocks side’s forward movement.

2011 GRAND FINAL v FOOTBALL/NETBALL HUMMOCKS DEFEATED BALAKLAVA, 42-30

Hummocks girls bask in premiership glory A1: Hummocks kept the pressure on Balaklava all game, their speed and tight defence proving too much for Balaklava, breaking away to earn the 2011 premiership crown by 12 goals. Hummocks’ defensive pressure at Balaklava’s centre pass and into goals was exceptionally tight, cutting out their free flowing game and forcing Balaklava to use alternate options. Gaynor Tink responded by applying plenty of pressure of her own, particularly around Hummocks’ circle. Tegan Nottle provided quick movements for her team, however transition into the circle was easier for Hummocks than Balaklava. Michelle Williams, Chelsea Koch and Carly Gregor each made some inspirational turnovers for Balaklava, however Lisa Powell and Bonnie Nicholls stopped them capitalising. Hum 9, Balak 7 Mel Moulds provided an outstanding reject on a long shot from Cassie Powell, plucking the ascending ball from the air. This proved to be the first real swing of momentum with Hummocks scoring the next four goals in a row before a stoppage for the blood rule for Tegan. The quarter was telling for Balaklava, with restricted forward movement and stepping costing them. Gaynor Tink worked hard, re-offering lead after lead to present for her team, but they needed something more to push forward. Hum 21 – Balak 14 A defensive move in the third term, swapping Michelle Williams from her usual GD to GK and Chelsea Koch to GD in a move to counter Tegan Nottle’s ground speed, which paid early dividends with a turnover from which Balaklava scored. To this point, Tegan had scored 16 of Hummocks’ 21 goals so the extra attention to restrict her movement was warranted. By half time, however, both Tegan and Sam Nicholls managed to adjust, supported by great drive through their mid-court players. Again, Balaklava were coming from behind. Lisa Powell got her hand to many balls. Hum 35 – Balak 20 The only positional change in the final quarter was for Balaklava, with Carly Gregor moving to WA and Kate Cmrlec to WD. Something sparked Balaklava, who scored six unanswered goals reducing the margin to nine and lifting their intensity at the ball. Cass Powell finally brought some aggression into the game despite being worked up by Bonnie Nicholls. Mel Moulds provided the turnover of the match and got her team back into scoring mode. Balaklava outscored in the quarter, but Hummocks had done the early work and it was all over. Final score: Hum 42 – Balak 30 A2: Two Wells took the lead early thanks to accurate shooting and fast movement, securing the win 45-34. The opening quarter was tight, with both teams shooting accurately. Two Wells took the lead early, to be in front by three goals at the first break. Sharnie Kent worked well in the goal circle for Two Wells. TW 11, Hum 8 Two Wells made the most of their opportunities

TW 20, Hum 13 The third quarter brought changes to the Hummocks line-up. Ashleigh Williams in GA created some drive and put up some good shots. However, Two Wells were still dominant all over the court. TW 34, Hum 26 Hummocks got within six goals in the last quarter, but Two Wells played a consistent four quarters. It was a near perfect day for Two Wells GS, Sharnie Kent, who put on a great performance throughout the match. Final score: TW 45, Hum 34 A3: This game showcased some great contests, Balaklava not able to put the reigns on Hummocks’ drive, the game ending in a long-awaited nine-goal win for Hummocks. Hummocks got the first break in the opening quarter from a Balaklava error. Hummocks GA, Sascha Tiller was dominant in Hummocks’ goal ring. The Hummocks defence worked hard, putting plenty of pressure on Balaklava’s goalies. Sascha Tiller worked hard in the ring for Hummocks. Hum 15, Balak 8 Hummocks continued to pull away from Balaklava through the early part of the second quarter. Tight defence from Jess Angel and Kirsty Williams gave Hummocks team opportunities. Sascha Tiller continued to drive their goals. Balaklava fought back with good defence by Alex Simon and Merridy Manual. Tania Robertson shot well to keep Balaklava in touch. Hum 27, Balak 20 The Peckerettes started the quarter well with plenty of mid court pressure by Terissa Smart and Alana Pollard, clawing back with three early goals. The intensity of the game lifted with Balaklava’s determination increasing. A great contest between Merridy Manual and Sascha Tiller. Hummocks made changes at both ends in the final quarter, looking to shake their team back on track. Balaklava missed some early goals, and Caitlin Mackay made them pay with some great play and shots in GA. Play was goal-forgoal through the middle of the quarter, with Hummocks pulling away in the end through the defensive pressure of Jess Angel and Kirsty Williams. Final score: Hum 46, Balak 37 It has been 22 years since Hummocks has won an A3

Hum 27, HB 23 It was all out this quarter… nerves, excitement, mistakes and not giving up! Hummocks worked brilliantly as a team and kept ahead, not taking anything away from the Hamley Bridge team. A fantastic game. Well done girls! Mikaela Lane-Watson was judged best for the Hummocks side, and this was well earned.

2011 GRAND FINAL v RESERVES

BALAKLAVA’S Reserves proudly display their 2011 premiership shield and flag.

Peckers prevail! Third quarter haul seals premiership BALAKLAVA claimed the Adelaide Plains reserves premiership on Saturday, knocking off Virginia in a spite-filled clash. The Peckers got the first goal of the game after good link-up play from Oren Hearnden and Paul McLean found playing coach, Kerry Michalanney, who finished truly from the set shot. Virginia hit back with the next goal to Terry Lioulios and the Rams were up and running. Trent Karutz was productive in the first term, collecting plenty of touches, while Jacob Simmonds provided excellent drive from half back. Virginia took the lead into the break and were pumped up with their efforts.

n By Jonathon Brice BALAKLAVA 11.9 (75) defeated VIRGINIA 8.8 (56) A silly 50 metre penalty from Peckers captain, Grant Willmer saw Alex Leo kick an easy goal. Balaklava grabbed control of the first five minutes in the second, resulting in a good goal to Michael Wheaton from long range. However, despite having majority of the play, the Peckers were wasteful in front of goal and Virginia made them pay. A pressure goal from

Sam Biermann boosted the Rams, and Karutz followed it up with a stunning goal from the boundary to send the Rams’ fans into a frenzy. It wasn’t looking good for Balaklava at the half time siren. Michalanney slammed his team’s attack, pleading for more desire, and he got the result he was after in the third term. McLean got an early goal, before Simon Nankivell slotted the

goal of the day from the boundary line to lift Balaklava’s spirits. Travis Zerk repelled plenty of Virginia forward thrusts with solid punching. Zerk was one consistent player, getting a fist in at most contests. It was Virginia’s turn to get the yips in front of the sticks, unable to wrest control of the match back off of Balaklava. Michalanney kicked the third of the term to boost the Peckers and it was then the Rams lost their cool, a scuffle resulting in both Virginia’s Richard Drew and Balaklava’s Jamie Tiller being sent to the sin-bin. But the Peckers had control in a stunning fight back in the third quarter, which proved the turning point in the match. A shot after the threequarter-time siren to Anthony Bascombe missed, rubbing further salt into the Rams’ wounds. Luke Guy gifted the Peckers the pivotal first goal of the final quarter. Alex Leo was unable to return fire for Virginia, missing an important chance. Daniel Tezacker was playing fine footy for the Peckers on a wing, while brother Luke seized on a Virginia error on half back to kick a goal. After returning to the field, Tiller slotted another goal for Balaklava from a 50 metre penalty. Luke Tezacker then kicked his second from two 50 metre penalties, which sealed the win. The Peckers played the better footy overall, the irresistible third term proving the difference in the end.

Plains Producer, Wednesday September 14, 2011

After a shellacking by Two Wells in the second semi, Balaklava senior colts were out to make amends in this grand final rematch. And so they did for a time – but it was the powerful Two Wells team that won the premiership with another big win. The Roosters finished 69 points clear to claim the 2011 premiership flag and shield. Dylan Wise, who kicked two goals, won the best player trophy. A very scrambly start to the game at Virginia eventually saw the ball head to Balaklava’s forward lines where Luke Williams opened with a goal. Two Wells responded with Hayden Ramsay kicking across the breeze from a slight angle. Balaklava’s Tim Shepherd responded with another goal – and that was the last time Balaklava led for the day. Two Wells came out firing in the second term, with captain Luke Godfrey leading the way with a great run from the middle and kicking their second goal. Balaklava’s Tom Lloyd and Callum Michael rucked well, with Shepherd and Riley McDonald trying to clear the ball from the centre in Balaklava’s direction, but up popped Godfrey again. The Two Wells midfield was relentless in their attacking of the ball, pushing forward at every opportunity.] They hunted the ball in packs which put pressure on the Balaklava

ball winners, causing turnovers. Balaklava’s backline was awash with a sea of red jumpers bearing down on them. Balaklava’s Josh Butterfield and Ryan Harris defended well, and Dylan Pfeiffer’s attack on the ball was exemplary. Two Wells led 5-5 to 2-2 at the main break. Two Wells started the third term well with another early goal, and only managed one more for the term, but the score could have been much worse for Balaklava if Two Wells had kicked accurately. Balaklava defenders Butterfield, Ben Michael, Brayden Harkness and Harris were under pressure and Harris

2011 GRAND FINAL v JUNior colts

Undefeated Magpies

JUNIOR colts premiership glory this year belongs to Mallala, who remained undefeated all season.

Mallala take victory in stellar effort Hot favourites and undefeated minor premiers, Mallala completed a great season of Junior Colts football with an impressive premiership win over Balaklava. Mallala won by 29 points, 7.8 (50) to 2.9 (21). Magpie big man Brad Wilson was awarded the best player trophy. Rightly so, as he booted five of Mallala’s seven goals. Mallala were pumped up to start the junior colts grand final, hoping for an early goal. However, the Balaklava juniors had other ideas and held up the flow from the centre. Balaklava pushed forward many times but the Mallala defenders intercepted and sent the ball back. It was a mad scramble in the centre and even though Balaklava had more of the play initially, Mallala’s cleaner hands and bigger lads broke through and scored the first goal.

n Louise Michael’s match review junior colts GRAND FINAL For Balaklava, Jacob Wehr and Jake Michael attacked the ball well in the centre. Mallala defended well through Jarrad Dunstan and Liam Mathew stopping Balaklava from putting a major on the scoreboard. Mallala pushed forward again with big full forward Brad Wilson starting to get his hands on the ball. He didn’t get any easy touches though as full back Jarrad Kibbler stuck to him like glue. Kibbler was helped in the backlines by Josh Harkness and Lachlan Speissegger. Mallala’s Angus Clothier and the O’Leary boys,

Lachlan and Ben, were good in both attack and defence and often got away from their opponents. The third quarter, known as the premiership quarter, started well for Balaklava with their first goal through Charlie Arbon. Mallala’s captain Josh Watson, with assistance from Ben O’Leary, tried to send the ball to their forward lines but Harkness intercepted the ball, went for a run and bombed the ball long to Dillon Michael, then to young mini Tyson Lamond who slotted the Peckers’ second goal. The Balaklava crowd went wild –

albeit for a short time Mallala, through Kyle Hummell and Adam Coe, sent the ball forward to big Brad, but he only managed a point. Balaklava did well holding Mallala to only minor scores in this quarter. Mallala opened the last term with a goal to Wilson, who was a matchwinner for the Magpies. Speissegger, D Michael and Harkness battled hard in defence but Mallala scored a good goal into the cross breeze at the southern end. Balaklava could only manage minor scores in this term, and when young Magpie Riley Thorne nailed the sealer with a great kick from a tight angle in the pocket, the fat lady sang. A good contest with all players trying hard and playing the game out until the very end – but Mallala certainly proved they were the best team for season 2011.

SPORT v NEFL

Bound for glory Cats regroup to win grand final berth R egrouping quickly after their surprise second semi final loss to BBH, Blyth-Snowtown ensured a Grand Final rematch with the Rams, after beating the third placed Mintaro-Manoora by a comfortable 38 point margin. In this penultimate game of the year, in a first ever NEFL final at Robertstown Oval, the Cats started well, but its early inaccuracy kept the Eagles in the contest. Blyth-Snowtown squandered opportunities in front of goal, having eight scoring shots but kicking 2.6 in the first quarter to lead by just 11 points at this break. Both team kicked a pair of goals each in the second and third term,

with the Cats advantage inching out 14 points by lemons, but the game was still up for grabs. This was despite minor premiers having the 15 shots at goal to six. Finishing with all four goals of the final term, Brett Ireland’s troops secured the right to participate in the 2011 Grand Final, their fifth appearance in the second decider since 2006 during this stellar era of the club, which amalgamated in the mid 1980s. “We had all the play in the opening term, but didn’t nail our shots for goal,” coach Brett Ireland said. “The precipitation started during the opening term, and it was ‘on and off’ light rain for at

least two quarters of this match. “In the end we had 14 more scoring shots than the Eagles and our goalkicking is an area we’ll need to address going into next week. “I felt we were doing enough for the whole game, but it took to the final quarter to get the job done.” Gareth Ottens produced a tremendous, best on ground effort at centre half back and later in ruck during the second half. Cats half forward Nathan Zweck, centre-man and captain Ryan Darling, utility Shay Clifford and Brad Bell were prime movers in the win. The younger Atkinson brother, Micky, was an important contributor on

his wing. Tyrone Clark was serviceable on the last line of defence, while Kyle Griffen and Craig Robinson gave the Cats run from half back. Aaryn Lloyd had an impact on this wing and when moved forward. Clifford finished his days work with three goals, while Zweck and Atkinson kicked two each. “I thought we played alright for three quarters, considering we were seriously undermanned,” Eagles coach Brad Charnstrom said. “We lost Nathan Forrest at half time with a shoulder problem, and Aaron Bevis, Ryan McDermid, Steve Baraglia, Ben Kerslake and Shawn

Gibson didn’t play. “I was still pretty proud of our group, who showed some real character and had a crack, despite the significant outs. “The final 20 minutes was when the game blew out.” Mintaro-Manoora captain Michael Young was courageous and manful all day for his side across half back Shane Ross was the best big man on the ground playing initially at centre half back and then on the ball, while Aaron Ackland fulfilled a number of roles all over the ground. On-baller Luke McDermid, utility Brad Bryksy and Nathan Scott, who tagged Scott Atkin-

CATS captain, Ryan Darlin in action on Saturday. son out of the game, all were strong performers. Veteran Brad Taylor kicked three of the Eagles five goals playing as a deep forward and half forward Stuart Pike

secured the other two. The Cats weren’t helped by the injury to country championships ruckman Wayne Slattery late in the second quarter last Saturday.

Cats looking for back-to-back flags Amazingly after a perfect and undefeated minor round, after the second semi final loss to Daniel Schell’s BBH Rams, the BlythSnowtown Football Club will go in as slight underdogs for the 2011 Grand Final. “BBH had talked about the defensive pressure and intensity all year, but didn’t produce it in either of the two minor round games against us,” Cats third year coach Brett Ireland said. “But they executed that very well in the second semi final game at Mintaro Oval. “Also I didn’t think we came ready to play finals football. “The dynamics have changed in two week and they have the momentum, and would go in as favourites playing a Grand Final on home turf after towelling us up in the second semi final. “They’ve had an extra week’s rest and to prepare for the clash. “Despite that we know they can be beaten and we have won the last two games at Burra against them.” Ireland has some selection headaches to work through as well.

peter’s KIss of Death:

Cats by 5 received a four-to-six week facial injury, and surprisingly didn’t play in the preliminary final. Ireland suggested he will have to prove to him that he is ready to go, but in all likelihood Gillings will play, even if not 100 per cent fit as they endeavour to stretch the Rams’ defence. He also has an issue with his number one ruckman Wayne Slattery, who left the ground and was on crutches after the game. The Cats coach called Slattery a 50/50 chance of playing, but he seemed confident that the big man will front up for the season decider. He also has teenage talent and

Prince Alfred College student Cameron Giles as an option for bring into this clash, as he would add strength and flexibility to the team’s big man options. “Naturally on second semi final day, the Rams had plenty of tall options in attack with Matt Booth, Daniel Schell and Jason Schuppan,” Ireland continued. “They are also likely to bring in Tom Whittlesea from the Eagles underage which further adds to their talls in attack. “I’d expect this to be a close and dour struggle, with not much separating the teams in the end.” If the Cats can reassert their ascendency through the middle of the ground with captain Ryan Darling, both the McCormack siblings, Nick and Simon, along with the backline players like Craig Robinson and Kyle Griffin giving the side the run and carry they have displayed all season, the Blyth-Snowtown can grab the 2011 crown. But what was seen as nearly a foregone conclusion a month ago, will be a big mental and physical ask. In a thrilling decider the Cats to be up by less than a goal.

North Eastern Mail medallist, Zack Hier, of RSMU.

Hier and Hier Twenty-three year old captain of the Riverton-Saddleworth-Marrabel United, Zack Hier is the 2011 North Eastern Mail Medallist after a run-away victory at the count held at Clare Oval facility on Monday night. The young leader was a pre-count favourite after sharing the Barracker media award with Blyth-Snowtown captain Ryan Darling, voted on by the coaches. Noted as a tough but fair competitor, with strong hands and a powerful left foot kick, Hier has been a regular A grade footballer since his mid teens, holding down the centre half back position and playing state country championships football as a 15-year–old. “These accolades are nice, but I’ll be happy to swap this with Ryan (Darling) to be playing this Saturday,” Heir said in his acceptance speech. Hier collected 31 votes to win by five votes from early leader and Cats captain, Ryan Darling on 26. Darling’s midfield team-mate Nick McCormack finished third with 23 votes, a total that would have won many medal counts across the state. Hier arrived in the local district in his early teenage years from the Eyre

REPORT: By Peter Argent Peninsula and also spent four years down at Woodville-West Torrens, being a part of the Eagles 2006 premiership success as an 18-year-old under Ron Fuller and playing 50 league games. For the Blyth-Snowtown side, this is the third time Darling has been runnerup. Co-incidentally, in both 2006 and last year, when he finished second to Sam Schmidt and Brodie Murphy respectively, the Cats went on to enjoy premiership success. In 2009, Darling was the runaway winner and the Cats went down to BBH in the season decider. North Clare’s Barry Sweetman collected Geoff Pink Memorial Trophy as the best and fairest player at B grade level with 18 votes, with BBH’s Justin Webster second on 15 votes, with Cats utility Ben Dohnt one vote behind him in third position. Cats half forward Scott Atkinson was the competitions leading goal kicker at A grade level with 54 goals in the minor round, while Michael Dopson from North collected the same accolade in the seconds.

balaklava night

After two weeks of wet weather, the skies cleared for a perfect night for the big winter night tennis grand final. Lisa Redpath’s Serves took on Emily Taylor’s Aces with all players out to win. Servers Douglas Howard and Lisa won a first set tiebreaker, with Lisa and Jarek Flight going on to win yet another tie. Lisa’s direct opponent, Nancy Gates was feeling a bit unlucky and was determined not to have another tie in the third, but coming second 6-2 with Emily wasn’t quite what she had in mind. The teacher/student grudge went on with Emily facing Danielle Murphy, who has shown lots of improvement in her first tennis season. Luckily Danielle could claim bragging rights at the end of the night and had a trophy and a pair of cocklewarmers to show her class the next day. Jarek and opponent Richard Goldney played some excellent rallies, with neither player giving any easy points. Young guns Douglas played against fellow Year 12 student Jason McBride all night and had two close ties and a 5-3 so it was a very even battle. But it wasn’t the Aces night, losing three ties and two 5-3s, so the Serves were premiers 6-31 to 0-20. Well done. The middle match saw third placed Jarrad Thiele’s Lobs play the fill-in team, Pauline Hill’s Backhanders. This was also an excellent match and thank you to the fill-ins, Pauline, Darren Scholz, Tina Taylor and Kevyna Gardner for making up quite a formidable team. But they weren’t quite good enough, with the Lobs winning 5-29 to 1-21. Well done to Pauline and Tina who won their set over Jarrad and

Peter Rohrlach, but like the Aces, lost other close ones, including two ties and two 5-3s. Scholzy faced the serious Steve Lawrie and once Scholzy got his eye in, went on to have two ties. Lobs sneaky star Alice Parsons played some excellent rallies against opponent Kevyna with both ladies placing some winners well. Tina had her first hit of the winter and had a consistent hit against Peter, as did Jarrad and Pauline. The hotly contested match for the prized wooden spoons saw an identical score to the above match, with Scott McDonald’s Vollies winning 5-29 to 1-21 thus the spoons went to Di Taylor’s Smashes, who were thrilled with their win. This match had two ties and three 5-3s, so this was a closer encounter than the final score indicates. Well done to Di and Jordan Taylor who won the Smashes only set over Sam Vankleef, who was out trying to impress his girlfriend with his tennis prowess, and Dave Northcott, who was just trying to impress. There were lots of screams and plenty of laughs coming from Vollies Aynara Lawless and Smashes Ash Flynn, with both girls playing their first tennis season and having lots of hits and misses, but still having fun. The hitting captain Scott had three very tight sets against Craig Sutton, two ties and a 5-3 showing how even these two were. There was some very entertaining sets played in the finals and during the season, so well done everyone. Thanks to Scott McDonald for organising the players each week. Summer night tennis cranks up in Term 4 so if you’re interested in playing, please contact Louise Michael 85286275 or Tania Allen 88622212 by Sept 9.

Building a foundation for junior cricketers WITH an aim to build a strong foundation for its future, Mallala Cricket Club is keen to mentor its junior cricketers into the club’s first season in the Barossa and Light Cricket Association. The club will also enter an under 12 side for the first time. Mallala were accepted into the Barossa and Light Cricket Association last month after the Lower Gilbert Cricket Association folded. “We will be entering under 12 modified, under 16 and A4 senior teams,” club president Kelly Curnow said. “The club is looking for interested players for both junior sides.”

The under 12 modified competition has rules in place to ensure everyone gets a go. “We welcome all skill levels, boys and girls, even those who have never played a game of cricket,” Mr Curnow said. The season for under 16s starts October 15 and under 12s from October 22. Training for under 12s will be Wednesday nights from 5 to 6pm, with under 16s on Thursday nights from 5 to 6pm. All junior training will begin October 14 and 15. For all enquiries contact Kelly Curnow A/H 8527 2173, 0422423366.

Balaklava men

Nineteen players, choosing to ignore the magnetic attraction of both Royal Show and local footy final fantasies, headed out for our Stableford stoush last Saturday, but 18 of them, expecting to knock Doug Taylor (38 points) off his his recently erected perch, received instead a quick slap in the chops with the wet mullet of reality, because young Doogle dominated yet again. Mighty Merv. Hameister was a tad miffed, being beaten on a count back, while Dennis Goudie proved the potential of playing a straight bat, claiming third place with 37 points. This stunning result had an immediate and substantially sudoriferous effect among the overlyambitious remainder, namely W. Lokan (36), P Thompson (35), G Anderson (34), D Trickett (34), G Leo (34), G McKenzie (33), A Henstridge (32), D Addison (30), W Goudie (30), W Nagle (29), R Hahn (29) and D Rodgers (28). Unfortunately, three other players were listed as “drowned”, such was the power of precipitation on the day. Thus we lost Jimmie Breuer, Moya Hayes and Patricia Anderson from the fray, all to steaming, hour-long Radox baths. Tall, of sculptured physique and widely acknowledged as a truly gifted golfer, Austin Henstridge smote the sole Birdie of the day, a magnificent achievement on the 15th, which is now the subject of a book, tele-movie and most likely a film, complete with action figures and a new breakfast cereal. He’s also so modest! Of surely lesser, but nonetheless quite worthy acclaim were Nearest The Pins, held by Doug Taylor at the 3rd., Digby Addison (8th), Greg Anderson (10th) and our glorious President Willum’ Lokan, who calmly creamed ‘em on both the 13th and 15th. This weekend, yet another Stableford round, directed by starters Mark Loy and Dave Rodgers will be conducted, with local Tibetan throat-singing sensation Digby Addison hamming it up behind the 19th. Please don’t forget to commit to our Open Day, on Sunday October 2nd, by writing your name on the list in the Captain’s office - we’ll know if you don’t!

Balaklava Mid week

A group of 10 took to the fairways on September 7, with Dennis Goudie winning the day with 53 points, Merv

Hameister 51 CB, Yvonne Leo 51, Dene Newton 48, Austin Henstridge 47, Joan Anderson 46 CB, Bill Goudie 46, Doug Taylor 45, Brian Stewart 44, Moya Hayes 39. Birdies: Dennis Goudie hole 8, Austin Henstridge hole 13. NTP: JoanAnderson hole 3, Dennis Goudie hole 8.

Hamley Bridge

Frequent tournament winner George Dahlitz must have thought he may have won another one carding a credible 45 points in Thursday’s stableford competition, only to find he had been beaten on a count back by Doug Cooper, who also played a great game with the “hand brake off” finishing with 45. Third place went to Bob Charman who has now more time to work on his golf with 44 on a countback from Bob Hillier and Errol Branson 44. Other scores: Gary Woods 42, Noel Stringer, Ron Smith 41, Max Grasby, Ross Hienze, Rex Mortimer 40, Cliff Applebee, Dave Russell 39, Dennis Nation 38, Brian Cooper 37, Ian Rohde, Colin Doudle, Kieth Kluske, Bob Ahola 36, and the rest never played to their handicaps. Birdies Adam Mitchell 1st & 9th, John Bell 1st & 9th, Gary Woods 7th & 12th, Ian Darwin 9th, Ron Smith 17th, Errol Branson 3rd, Dave Russell 14th, Bob Charman 4th. NTPs: Ian Rohde14th, Ian Darwin 9th. Again the retired Bob Charman has showed us if you practice and play more golf you will eventually reap the rewards scoring a net 63 in Saturday’s stroke competition to win the day from Vince Zito 64, Wim Van Pelt & Ross Hienze 65. A GRADE: Vince Zito 64, Wim Van Pelt 65, Barry Zerna 68, John Bell 71. B GRADE: George Dahlitz 68, Ron Smith 69, Bob Hinderwell 70.

Balco is one of Australia's leading processors and exporters of high grade oaten hay, with a national network of loyal growers and an expanding international market.

Carpentry & General Repairs

Balco is preparing for a bumper hay season. Starting in early October 2011 we have several vacancies for “Harvest Casuals” to assist with the collection of hay samples throughout the Mid North & Yorke Peninsula regions of South Australia. Whilst comprehensive training will be provided experience or knowledge of the hay industry/mixed farming practices will be an advantage. As the harvest waits for no one you can expect to work extended hours each day (weekends included) for which penalty and overtime rates apply. You’ll need a current drivers’ license and be able to provide your own comprehensively insured, Diesel 4WD vehicle. We pay a generous mileage allowance and will assist with any insurance upgrade to cover business use. For more information please contact Michael Tonkin at Balco on 8862 0075. Applications close September 21, 2011

The home consists of 3 bedrooms with a large lounge and a semi modern kitchen with an island bench and more than enough cupboard and bench space. 2 of the bedrooms have built in robes and also ceiling fans. The lounge has the luxury of s/c heating as well as ref. a/c and a ducted evaporative a/c and given in as well is a large tv unit. The house is also insulated and is presented in such a good condition that you could move in immediately with nothing to do. Other features include a full length carport, separate car garage, workshop, established gardens on semi automatic watering systems and has the convenience of a direct rear access from the back street. Don’t be fooled by the frontage as this home is a lot bigger than it looks.
