Back-to-back for the Chargers

by Marketing on December 21, 2020

The Central Chargers won their second SA Super League title in a row with an upset win over the Western Rogues in last Friday night’s grand final.

The Rogues were too strong for the Chargers in their round four clash and the previous week’s semi-final, however a new-look line-up helped the latter pull off a memorable victory.

The Rogues’ trio of Max Kleinig, Josh Studham and Jayden Zeller were able to score a four-shot win over Ben Bowman, Brenton Bain and Bailey Rafferty in the triples, however a 17-shot win by Craig Mills, of the Chargers, over Simon Geater-Johnson in the singles, helped the Chargers establish a healthy overall lead.

The match came down to the final few ends of the pairs clash, however Ashley Klose and Carl Schapel, of the Rogues, were only able to defeat the Chargers’ pair of Mark Haines and Bradley Pech by one-shot, handing the Chargers overall victory.

Mills was named best on the green for his match-winning efforts in the singles for the Chargers.

In the reserves grand final the South Eastern Spartans were too strong for the Northern Knights.

David O’Shaughnessy and Jimmy Mader, of the Spartans, defeated Isaac Jesser and Karin Lynch, of the Knights, by nine shots in the pairs, while the Spartans’ trio of Jackie Field, Karlee Moffatt and Adam Black also scored a nine-shot win over Chris Chrisakis, Sue Coultas and Corey Jackson in the triples.

Simon Chewter did his best to keep the Knights in the match by scoring a nine-shot win over Kevin Stock in the singles.

Moffatt was judged best on green for her efforts for the Spartans.

The Mallee Pirates capped of a stellar season in the under 21s by defeating the Western Rogues in the grand final.

The Pirates’ pair Cameron Hill and Cody Letton were too strong for Harrison Geater-Johnson and Evie Exton, of the Rogues.
