Clinical Chargers crowned champions
The Central Chargers capped off a dominant finals campaign to claim their third SA Super League title in a row on Sunday afternoon at Salisbury.
After nearly slipping out of the top four following a chaotic round six and seven double header, the Chargers made the most of their opportunity and put together a strong campaign, which concluded with a big win over the Heysen Comets in the League grand final.
Craig Mills set the tone for the Chargers with a 14-shot win over Damon Edmunds in the singles, while Wayne Ruediger and Nathan Pedersen defeated Brett Davis and Josh Chopin by eight shots in the pairs to all but seal the result.
The triples was the closest rink, with the Chargers eventually making it a clean sweep, with Mark Haines, Brenton Bain and Karen Gatto overcoming Matthew Northcott, Tim Hicks and Brad Errock by five shots.
Meanwhile, the Comets’ Reserves had a much better day as they came away with a big win over the Eastern Raiders.
A 24-shot win by Stewart Jones, Andrew Peters and Guy Uren over Noel Kneebone, Karen Kneebone and Kathy Miller in the triples set up the big win, while Grace Moloney and Corey Hicks also registered an eight-shot victory over Peter Mathews and Andrew Gard in the pairs.
Cath Greenslade fought hard for the Raiders, scoring a, eight-shot win over Ally Baldock in the singles.
The day got under way with an exciting Junior grand final, which saw the Western Rogues duo of Harrison Geater-Johnson and Kobe Jarman, defeat Anda Panchawat and Sam Milkins, of the Blazers by 25 shots.
