Lloyd wins first
round of trophy
LOXTON claimed an important five-
wicket win over Berri in the only
Riverland Turf Cricket Association A
grade match on the weekend.
Berri won the toss and elected to
bat first, but was quickly in trouble
after Josh Fielke and Robert Taylor
were dismissed for just one and eight
Berri struggled to gain any momen-
tum in its innings, due to tight bowl-
ing from the Loxton attack.
Scott McKenzie was the stand-out
with the ball for Loxton taking 2/18
from eight overs, while Craig Fisher
finished with economical figures of
1/5 from eight overs.
Berri managed to scrape its way
to 5/92 from its 40 overs, with vet-
eran Wayne Scadden finishing as top
scorer with 27 runs.
Loxton continued its momentum
with the bat as Bradley Walter and
Will Gutsche put on 28 for the first
Daniel Schawyer threatened to turn
the game on its head for Berri, taking
two quick wickets.
But 45 from Walter helped Loxton
chase down the required total for vic-
tory in the 27th over.
Ladder leaders Renmark North
had a quiet weekend after Waikerie
Ramco forfeited its match.

PAFC visit a boost
for Riverland footy
THE Port Adelaide Football
Club will today finish its 2017
Australia Post AFL Community
Camp here in the Riverland.
RFL president Gary Pfeiler
said the event is a big deal for
football in the Riverland and
he has been impressed with the
Port Adelaide Football Club’s
willingness to get out and cover
as much of the region as pos-
“I think it will be very special
for the people of the Riverland,”
“Port Adelaide are doing it
very well. They are going to all
of the schools, hospitals and
aged care facilities across the
“They are spreading them-
selves all over the Riverland
to show they are committed to
representing the AFL in South
Mr Pfeiler said organising the
camp took a lot of hard work
behind the scenes.
“The people from Port
Adelaide have been work-
ing extremely hard, along with
Brenton from the Berri Football
Club and Dave from the RFL,”
“Many hours have gone into
setting it up and Mother Nature
has been very kind to us with
the weather also.”
The camp was highlighted by
a sportsman’s night at the Berri
Football Club last night, along
with an Auskick super clinic
and autograph signing session
Over the two days, the
club will have visited over 40
schools, hospitals and aged care
facilities across the Riverland.
Big finish by Berri
