Match of the Day
With Graetzy & Dubes - Tune into 100.7
Saturday, August 16th
Waikerie v Barmera at 2.00pm
By NICK DILLON
The heartbreak of losing
last year’s premiership has
driven Barmera United
on to the ultimate prize in
the 2014 A grade soccer
The Pelicans lost a tight
battle with eventual premier
Renmark Olympic last year,
but is undefeated in 2014.
Barmera secured the title
recently, with nearest rival
Renmark unable to bridge the
Coach Kev Barber said last
year’s result had an impact this
“I think that’s driven some
of the players on this year,”
Barber said. “We did really
well in last year’s Top Four
Cup, but the premiership is
what it’s all about.
“Winning by an average of
10 goals has been a dream.
“Marty (Barber) is only
eight goals off getting 50. He
and Jim Fournaros have had a
bit of a party this year.”
Barmera can wrap up an
undefeated season with a win
over Olympic after this week-
“We’re playing the best
opposition and we can’t rest on
our laurels,” Barber said.
Barber said the club’s new
facilities at Bruce Oval have
had an impact this year.
“Having our own ground
has been really good and the
atmosphere around the club is
so high,” he said.
“Everything’s buoyant and
we’re riding the crest of the
Barber has a talented squad
at his disposal, having the lux-
ury of replacing the unavail-
able Jon Pintilie with back-
packer Chris Morgan.
When Morgan becomes
unavailable next week, he has
Kyle Lehman and Anthony
Ielasi waiting in the wings.
“We’ve got a good squad
of players to choose from,”
he said. “Having the other A
grade team helps, because the
guys on my bench get a run
The Pelicans also have a
number of talented juniors who
have played their role this year.
“James Wallace has been
outstanding,” Barber said.
“He’s the most outstanding
junior in the whole competition
because he’s so ‘coachable’.”
Other juniors to impress are
Riley Wallace, Blake Guppy
and Nick Kostantakis.
Berri recently wrapped up
the open women’s premier-
ship, while the under 16 title
is a two-horse race between
Renmark and Barmera and will
be decided in the final round.
The minor round will wrap
up next week at Loxton before
the Top Four Cup begins.
Berri won a thrilling
A grade women’s hockey
match against Waikerie last
A penalty corner conversion
saw Berri win take the lead
with just minutes remaining.
Earlier in the night, Berri’s
Kira McMahon, Charlotte
Dominic and Ada Walladge
often brought the ball into
attack, with Emma Cuteri solid
in the middle.
Kristen Pick was a ball
magnet for Waikerie, combin-
ing well with Trinity Schmidt
to apply pressure on Berri’s
However, Berri scored first
when Cuteri ran the ball along
the baseline before passing to
Kris Weir, who hit truly.
Walladge then scored anoth-
er for Berri to give her side a
2-0 lead at half time.
Sheree Loffler, Pick and
Jess Dolphin combined well in
the second half for Waikerie,
with Monica Hansen scoring as
Weir answered from a pen-
alty corner for Berri, before
Pick scored twice to level the
scores for Waikerie.
With less than two minutes
remaining, Berri was award-
ed another penalty corner and
Weir scored her third of the
night to give Berri the win.
Renmark and Loxton battled
out a 2-2 draw in Saturday
Renmark controlled the
match until the final 10 min-
utes, when two turnovers and
poor defensive coverage saw
Steph Baird score twice.
Sally Giles and Danielle
Weeks controlled the tempo
for much of the match for
Renmark, with Laura Strout
and Amy Evans also playing
Their early dominance saw
Weeks and Lauren Scott score.
Loxton worked its way back
into the clash thanks the efforts
of Baird, Louise Smith and
Waikerie defeated Berri 5-0
in A grade men’s hockey,
with a dominant performance
in the second half.
Bode Baylis, Anthony Segui
and Tim Trewren controlled the
ball early for Berri, but neither
side was able to score.
Rowan Kleeman scored
from a penalty corner for
Waikerie at the 27-minute
A fast ball through to Ryan
Edwards in the circle gave
Waikerie a 2-0 lead shortly
Berri was right in the
match, but could not get on the
After the break, Waikerie
put the pressure on with
Rowan Hope making it 3-0.
The experience of Waikerie
shone through, with Michael
Camilleri, Brenton Kroehn and
Andrew Nitschke playing well.
Hope scored again before
Hocking made it 5-0 late in the
Renmark and Loxton had
a repeat of the women’s
score in their men’s clash, fin-
Loxton controlled the mid-
field for most of the game, but
was not potent in the attacking
Renmark worked well on
the counter attack, with Dan
Shawyer and Troy Parker pro-
viding plenty of run.
Callum Benda was the
recipient of the Blues’
hard work, scoring both of
Tim Pannell, Jimmy and
Michael Lange, Karl Henning
and Ryan Hentschke controlled
the midfield battle.
Josh Hentschke and Joel
Hopper both scored for Loxton.
Three players tied for
top qualifying honours in
the Renmark Golf Club

Riverland Boxing Club members have
had mixed results over the past fortnight.
Jack Seabourne picked up a win at the North
Sydney Junior Leagues Club in front of a big
He beat Conor Benn, the son of form English
world champion Nigel, in a tough 64kg contest.
Ryan Goodes competed at the same event, but
went down to New South Wales representative
Koen Mazoudier in a 69kg youth bout.
The following week saw the same two boxers
travel to Hobart. Goodes was defeated in a 69kg
youth bout by current Australian champion Jack
Gipp, despite putting him on the canvas early in
the last round. Seabourne beat 2013 elite senior
silver medallist Jeremy Udovic in a tough con-
test, using his reach to score long clean shots.
Seabourne was also named boxer of the tour-
Seabourne then joined clubmate Bradon
Dunning at the Munno Para Bowling Club in
Adelaide on Saturday.
Dunning took control of his fight with
Adelaide’s Elijaz Safa in a 60kg contest, using
good footwork and fast punching to come away
with the win. Seabourne’s good run came to an
end against Adelaide’s Daneil Frayne in a 69kg
elite open match.
All three local boxers will compete in
the National Golden Gloves tournament in
Queensland next weekend.
