Dumbleyung Darts Club
With the captain sporting an injury, things looked grim after the first 6 games with Allstars being 5/1 down, but a fightback for the last 5 games saw us win 6/5. A magnificent win as we only lost one of the singles’ games. As we only play out to 16 shots in the singles, then highest score (HS), 2 of the games went to HS. Averages were a lot better than last week with Graham 53.37 1 peg, Block 48.56 1 peg, Don 46.48 1 peg, Big John (BJ) 36.27 1 HS, Roadhouse Rick 34.8 1 peg, 1 HS, John (inj) 31.26.
We host Darkan Blue at Wagin Club next Wednesday 25/7. Then Wagin team Jumbucks at Wagin 1/8/18. Association singles will be on Saturday 1/8/18 at Wagin.

Lakeview Golf Club
The eventual winner of the day was Paul Ward with another great score of 88/72 and cleaned up winning the Putting Comp with 26 putts and the Monthly Mug. Runner-up on a countback was Jamie Dare 94/75 who decided to take pity on his player, having drawn the short straw and had to play with the Ladies Captain. Jamie’s goal of not to go into the bush, achieving the ultimate of being on fairway with his drives most of the day, not that his partner really went looking for any of his balls. He did lose 1 on a 2nd shot, disappearing maybe into the crop on 16. Jamie also won the Birdie hole with the $ being handled by Louisa. The Gross was Dave Wall with 91 and novelties won by Paul, Jamie, Lee & Tamara. Heard on the rainvine that the highest score of the day of 15 on a hole went to the over 80's clubman cartman. Ladies was won by Tamara Bartram 95/77, scoring the only other Birdie for the day.
Thank you to Lee for organising the babysitter, some of the children did not feel the cold. Garry for the fire, it was just a pleasure to come into a nice warm room every week and unfreeze. Next week 28th will be a Stableford sponsored by Wagin Jewellers. Good luck to all those members holidaying in warmer places!!!

Dumbleyung Netball Club
Our Ducks returned to the court this week, now graded into the Katanning Netball Association’s Division two competition. Teams to secure a Division two spot include Allstars 2, Olympians 2, Cardinals Force 1, Cardinals Fever 2 (all Katanning teams) and Dumbleyung. With four games left before finals, every game is going to count.
The return to the court is a little bittersweet as we have also had to farewell one of our amazing Ducks from the court as a little duckling is on its way! A huge congratulations to Chloe and Bevan on their wonderful baby news!
Our first game was against Cardinals Fever 2 of whom we had secured a good win against in the Division 1/2 round. The game started quickly, although we were not as quick off the mark as the three week break from game play, did take its time for us to find our groove. However, what we did make up for was the determination to get the ball back down to our goal end.
For most of the game each team had scored evenly with our Ducks two goals down going into the fourth quarter. The fourth quarter did see Cardinals Fever begin a run of a couple of goals initially but then something happened, a rebound that converted to our goal that created the lift our Ducks needed. From that point on, we were intercepting, passing stronger, talking louder and just determined to get that ball down our goal end.
With Chloe swapping the court for the official’s bench, a new goals dynamic duo was needed! And this has been found in Elspeth Smith and Tegan Hall. Tegan and Ellie were on-song with their goals scoring a total of thirteen goals to Cardinals four in this last quarter.
The final score was Dumbleyung (36) to Cardinals Fever 2 (29). A fabulous game played by all of our Ducks! Best players for Dumbleyung, Clare Smith, Elspeth Smith and Tegan Hall.
Thank you to all of our supporters for coming along to watch our game. What a nail biting game but a game we are so proud of. Our next game is Round 11 Saturday 28th July versus Cardinals Force 1 at 3pm on Court 4. Go Ducks!

Dumbleyung Men's Hockey Club
After a talk and regroup at half time the men started much better than their first half. The defence was strong while the attackers appeared to have adapted a seagull method. Dumbleyung managed another three goals in the second half with Olympics only gaining two which resulted with a win for Dumbleyung. The final (and high) score was 6-5 and overall, a fantastic and enjoyable game to watch. Dumbleyung are now currently second on the ladder just behind Warriors. A great position to be in with finals approaching.
Goal scorers were Sam West (3), Matt Dare (1), Brynn Justins (1) and Ethan Henry (1). Better players went to Courtney Bairstow, Matt Dare and Mark Smith. This week the Men will travel to Narrogin on Saturday July 28 and play Pingelly at 2.30pm. All are welcome to come along and cheer on the team!
