The word “surprise” was used on several occasions when a report of the weekend`s baseball matches arrived.
Firstly the result of Sunday`s clash at Lyrup between Lyrup and Barmera ‘B’ when the home side won 11-3 was considered an upset as Barmera had appeared early ‘premiership material’.
But the return of pitcher and accomplished batter Roy Grenfell to the Lyrup side has given it an enormous boost.
In the game between Barmera ‘A’ and Berri ‘A’ Barmera won impressively 6-2.
A week earlier Renmark ‘A’ had defeated Barmera ‘A’ 3-1 but Barmera with Matt and Tim Golding back in the team, Steven Dack transferring from Loxton and Stefan Best from Renmark has returned to the competition this season in really good shape.
Berri Warriors with seven premierships in the last seven seasons are now the only side without a win.
In Friday night`s game at Glassey Park Berri ‘B’ defeated Renmark ‘B’ 10-6.
