BARMERA booked its spot in the
Riverland basketball division one
men’s grand final with an eight-
point win over Loxton in the
second semi-final last week.
A key part of the Lakers’ upset
win was Dillon Millard’s strong
defensive job on Adam Proud to
keep the Loxton star to only 14
points, well below his season aver-
age of 21.
Mitch Wellington was a standout
on the offensive end for Barmera,
chalking up a game-high 17 points
as his side moved straight through
to the decider.
Renmark kept its season alive
thanks to a tight six-point win
against Waikerie in the division one
men’s first semi-final.
Craig Seekamp was a standout
for the Steamers, scoring 19 points
in a dominant display.
Seb Bald put in a strong show-
ing for Waikerie, hitting five three-
pointers on his way to 19 points.
However it wasn’t enough, with
Renmark to face Loxton for a spot
in the grand final.
The Steamers’ division one
women’s team clinched a spot in
the grand final thanks to a tense
two-point victory against Barmera
in the second semi-final.
In a back-and-forth battle, Abbey
Siviour proved the difference,
stepping up to score seven of the
Steamers’ last nine points to help
them seal a come-from-behind win.
Portia Size and Lisa Millard
were two of the Lakers’ best play-
ers on the night.
Waikerie ended Loxton’s season,
while keeping its own alive after a
nail-biting three-point win in the
Hannah Lehmann was in every-
thing for the Warriors as she racked
up a game-high 15 points.
Waikerie will now take on
Barmera for a spot in the season

Lloyd wins trophy
Loxton books grand final ticket
LOXTON kept its quest for back-to-back Riverland
Turf Cricket Association A grade premierships alive
with a 74-run win over Berri in the preliminary final
After narrowly missing out on top spot and a
direct path into the grand final, Loxton made light
work of Berri in the do-or-die contest.
Loxton won the toss and elected to bat first on
its home deck, and it took full advantage as Brad
Walter and Will Gutsche built a strong opening part-
nership of 88 before Walter was dismissed for 32.
This did not deter young Gutsche as he went
on to score 64 before being dismissed by veteran
Wayne Scadden also dismissed Brian Lynch for
nine, leaving Loxton at 3/110.
Despite having a strong platform laid for them,
Loxton’s middle order struggled to gain any
momentum as the Berri bowlers struck at regular
A cameo knock of 27 by Michael Gutsche helped
Loxton reach a total of 9/163 from its 40 overs.
Brad Rosenzweig and Luke Cotter finished with
2/33 and 2/31 respectively for Berri, while Wayne
Scadden was the pick of the bowlers with 2/26 from
his eight overs.
With a spot in the grand final on the line, it was
Loxton that gained an early advantage in the run
chase, taking two early wickets to leave Berri posi-
tioned precariously at 2/13.
This brought Berri’s key batsmen Rosenzweig
and Wayne Scadden to the crease, with their team’s
season on the line.
After top scoring with the bat, Loxton young
gun Will Gutsche also played a vital role with the
ball for his team, snaring the important wicket of
Rosenzweig for just 13.
The youngster also took the wickets of Danial
Shawyer and Richie Kubsch on his way to figures
Despite the best efforts of Wayne Scadden who
eventually top scored for Berri with 27, none of his
teammates were able to stay at the crease with him,
as wickets continued to tumble.
Berri was eventually bowled out for 89, with
Ryan Smith finishing with figures of 3/16 off seven
overs for Loxton.
