Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - SPORT -

The Deni Di­a­monds made their way through to the Goul­burn Val­ley Cro­quet As­so­ci­a­tion pen­nant grand fi­nal af­ter de­feat­ing the Rich River Kan­gas in the semi fi­nal last Thurs­day.

They won eight games to four to give them­selves a chance to claim back-to-back pen­nant ti­tles against Shep­par­ton at Rich River.

This will be a tough game for the Di­a­monds, hav­ing lost to Shep­par­ton the last time th­ese sides played each other.

On Sun­day 16 play­ers took part in cro­quet. Dot Mur­phy was the only three game win­ner, win­ning the day with 24 hoops.

Four play­ers won two games and had good scores de­spite los­ing one game.

Brad Fawns scored 24, Jill Tainsh 22 and Marg Telford 20 hoops.

Three play­ers ran a handy hoop-in-one each with Jill Tainsh, Heather Dou­glas and Val Wolfe all ac­cu­rate on the day.

There were also three play­ers with suc­cess­ful jump shots. Gwen Pearn had two while Val Wolfe and Brad Fawns each had one.

Play­ers are re­minded that next Wed­nes­day will be the last play­ing day for 2018.

The club is hop­ing for a good roll-up to make it a great morn­ing.

It has not yet been de­cided when cro­quet will start next year but the club hopes that de­ci­sion may be known be­fore the Christ­mas lun­cheon.

The bus will be leav­ing the cro­quet courts for the Christ­mas/pre­sen­ta­tion lun­cheon at 11.30am on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 16.
