"If something isn't working,
we have the option of making a
change which has probably been
the difference between us and
other teams," Uren said.
"Leah (Uren) can go into
goals, Skye (Beauchamp) can
come on in to defence, Sharona
(Edwards) has played goals and
Amber's (George) played at
After conceding the lead in
the first quarter during the sec-
ond semi-final, Uren hopes to
come out stronger tonight.
"Probably the team that set-
tles first and can apply the most
pressure to the other team will
win," she said.
"We've had slow starts all
year so that's been our focus for
the past couple of weeks."
Renmark coach Ann Noack is
embracing the team's underdog
"It's actually pretty good to
be underdogs," she said. "It takes
the pressure off. I don't mind it
Renmark has struggled with
injury throughout the year
and has been without captain
Denikah Gartery for most of the
But now that it is in the grand
final, Noack said the past means
little to tonight's result.
"We've had a pretty tough
season," she said.
"Losing Denikah put us on
the back foot, but we've come
back well and we're pretty
happy with where we're at.
"The past two games we've
played we had our chances. We
had as much of the ball and as
many opportunities, but they
took advantage and we didn't."
Noack praised 15-year-old
Sophie Croft for her composure
and was excited to see her in
"Sophie's been one of our
most consistent and best per-
formers," she said.
"She's only 15 and has a

Loxton North skipper
Josh Nelson will return for
tomorrow's Riverland A grade
football preliminary final.
Nelson, who injured his knee late
in the season, will come back at the
expense of ruckman James Searles.
His return is timely after the Panthers
were well beaten by Barmera-
Monash in last week's second semi-
final. Waikerie on the other hand is
unlikely to make changes to the side
that easily dismantled Renmark in the
The Panthers will need to find
someone to stop the in-form Jim
Thomson, who has kicked 14 goals
in his past two matches.
The B grade preliminary final
between Renmark and Loxton
should also be a close one tomorrow.
Loxton appears to have regained
its early season form, while the
Rovers will be keen to bounce back
from last Saturday's disappointing
loss to Waikerie.
Meanwhile, the Whillas Medal
will be held at the Loxton Sporting
Club on Monday night.
Renmark skipper Trevor Thorpe
is the favourite to take out his first
medal, but he should have stiff
competition on the night.
Last year's winner and teammate
Shane Walker should poll well, along
with Barmera-Monash duo Aaron
Dart and Dillon Millard, Loxton
North's Michael Scott, Waikerie's
Tim Bevan, Loxton's Leigh Kruger
and Berri's Adam Beauchamp.

Loxton and Renmark will
be fighting for a spot in the A
grade men's hockey grand final
Loxton would still be seething
from last week's loss to Waikerie
and should come out hard.
Loxton relies heavily on Tim
Pannell, Karl Hennig, Steven
Trezise and stalwarts Tim Cass
and Tim Vivien. Ryan and Josh
Hentschke have been in good form
in front of goals, but will be up
against in-form Renmark keeper
Stephen Cresp, who is in the mid-
dle of a purple patch.
Renmark's Dan Shawyer, Brett
Stokes, Callum Benda and Martin
Tucker add experience to the Blues,
while juniors Nathan and Joel
Woodrow and James Hutchins have
been impressive in recent weeks.
The A grade women's match
up promises to be a ripper, with
Renmark taking on Berri. Both
teams have performed well this sea-
son and have had some tight games.
Danielle Weeks was at her
brilliant best last week, and with
support from Sally Giles, goalie
Tegan Moldovan, Laura Strout,
Chloe Weigall and Brooke Webb,
the Blues have a good spread of
players. Juliet Mallinson is likely
to miss the encounter though, but
should return for the grand final if
Berri has a solid defensive
line, with Jen Kiel, Jane Hustler,
Emma Cuteri, Naomi Wetherald
complimented by young forwards
Kira McMahon, Ada Walladge
and Charlotte Dominic. At its best,
Berri is as good as any team in the
competition and this match should
go down to the wire.

Peter Harman held off a
late revival from Daryl Tyler
to claim his fifth Loxton
Golf Club Championship on
Harman shot out to an early
lead of four after 10 holes.
Harman maintained this lead
through 18 holes and extended it
to six after 28.
By his own admission Tyler
had played indifferent golf until
that point, but aided by a sud-
den slip in Harman's putting, he
strung together three winning
pars in three holes.
With five holes remain-
ing the margin was just three,
but Tyler's surge was brief as
Harman squared the next three
holes to close out the match 3/2.
Marlene Tyler secured her
13th women's title 8/7 over
Tyler jumped out to an early
lead of six after nine holes.
Williams matched Tyler for
much of the match, but Tyler's
early lead proved insurmount-

Barmera's Rose Gow will be
competing in the Australian Drug
Free Powerlifting Championships
in New South Wales tomorrow.
Gow will join fellow South
Australians Damian and Chris
Powell at the event.
Gow has a body weight of just
over 50kg, but is expected to lift
over two and half times that in the
over 50 female deadlift.
Her squat of around 75kg should
see her break world records.

Renmark Small Bore Rifle Club's
shoot last Thursday.
Holmes won both the off rifle
and the handicap sections in the
fourth round of the club's latest tro-
