Jervois v Murray Bridge Blue

Jervois remain the only undefeated team in Div 1 with a crushing 32 shot win over Murray Bridge Blue at Jervois, winning 2 rinks by an emphatic 17 shots apiece, and dropping the 3rd rinkby 2 shots. Andrew Stasinowsky led the way for the home side with a superb display, well supported by David Kempe, Derek Vanderzon and David Graham as they easily overwhelmed Hugh Smyth, Jim Freak, Peter White and David Ratsch. After picking up the first 2 ends to lead by 3 shots, Smyth was helpless as Stasinowski piled on a trio of 3’s, followed by a 4 and a single to lead 14 to 3 after 7 ends. After that he was able to limit the damage to 1’s and 2’s, and was evenable to score a 3 on the 17th to buck the trend, but the margin still steadily climbed for a 28 to 11 shot win for the home side.

Graeme Herbert, Rodger Zarantonello, Denis Hicks and Shawn Hicks made easy work of Brian Traeger, Bruce Attrill, Lynton Keen and Ben Traeger, and their 33 to 16 win could have been much bigger had it not been for a mid game slump.A tactical error on the 5th end saw Herbert take full toll and score the maximum 8 to propel his side to a 15 to 1 lead. The skippers hadcrossed withBlue holding 2 shots, but they had failed to cover the back and when Herbert somehow managed to cannon the jack back without taking the shot bowl with it a remarkable 10 shot turnaround resulted. Traeger was unable to cut back with his final bowl to deny the rare feat. But rather than drop their heads, Blue was able to fight back over the next 9 ends to reduce the margin to a respectable 6 shots, and were back in the game. Herbert again took control, winning 6 of the remaining 7 ends to add another 15 shots, while dropping a 4 on the 19th as their only blemish.

Paul Smart, John Jackson, Helen Lindner and Ron Goodwin were able to salvage something for the visitors on an otherwise miserable day for them, with a hard earnt 2 shot win over Blake Fiebig, Garry Mason, Graham Schenke and Martin Beaumont, 16 to 14 in a low scoring encounter. This game was closely contested throughout, with Smart holding sway for most of the day, but never extending his lead beyond 6 shots which he hadachieved by the 17th end. 1, 3 and 1 to Fiebig reduced the margin to a solitary shot on the last end, but he was unable to convert on the final end, conceding a single for a 2 shot loss.
