In the GVCA Golf Cro­quet pen­nant com­pe­ti­tion last week the Deni Di­a­monds were de­feated in a close match, six games all and 76 hoops to 71 in favour of Echuca/ Moama Greens. The Gems had the bye. On Oc­to­ber 12 the Deni Gems travel to Rich River and the Di­a­monds are at home to Shep­par­ton.

Last Sun­day only nine play­ers showed up for cro­quet.

Andy Davis was the only three game win­ner on the day with a ter­rific score of 33 hoops.

Heather Dou­glas and Dors Peter­son scored 24 hoops de­spite los­ing one game.

Gwen Pearn and Dors Peter­son each ran a handy hoop-in-one and Andy Davis man­aged three suc­cess­ful jump shots to help him score well.

The fifth round of the Challen Cup will be played on Sun­day. All play­ers are en­cour­aged to take part.

Eleven play­ers took part in cro­quet on Wed­nes­day. There were two three-game win­ners with Lor­raine Honey­man win­ning the day with 23 hoops fol­lowed closely by Me­gan Tonta with 22.

Two play­ers with good scores de­spite only win­ning two games were John James on 22 hoops and Heather Dou­glas with 21.

There were two jump shots for the day with Mary James and John Tainsh each hav­ing one.

The shot of the day went to Lor­raine Honey­man. Lor­raine hit a ball from the bound­ary, a long dis­tance from the hoop, and man­aged to just tip the ball in front to put it through for an amaz­ing ‘in-off’.

Play­ers are re­minded that cro­quet play will be 9am for 9.30am start this com­ing Wed­nes­day. This is due to the High School stu­dents com­ing back to play in the af­ter­noons.

The club would also like to thank the 15 vol­un­teers who pre­pared the sal­ads last Thurs­day and Fri­day for the Lawn Ten­nis Club’s sou­vlaki stall at the Ute Muster.
