WED­NES­DAY’S fix­tures pro­duced some sur­prise re­sults. One of the youngest play­ers, Sam Lau­rence, got up 2-1 over Adon Trewick who is top of the line. Sam may be young but he more than makes up for his lack of height and age with tremen­dous en­thu­si­asm and never say die fight­ing spirit. He chased ev­ery­thing and was re­warded with his vic­tory. Lach­lan Cowe con­tin­ues to im­prove and this was ev­i­dent in his close game with Rae Page. Rae is top of her line but Lach­lan stretched her in their match with some great re­turns and ral­lies. Rae won 2-1. An­other fast mover is Cole Wat­son who de­feated Chris Dwyer 3-0. Chris tried hard but Cole proved stronger in the end. In other re­sults; Hay­ley Gwynne d Dean Macarthy 3-0, Bry­dehn Ben­der d Poppy Lau­rence 3-0, Rae Page d Jake Ne­wham 3-0, Chris Dwyer d Lach­lan Seibel 3-0. Team scores af­ter round 5 are; Team 1; 31 points, Team 2: 24, Team 3: 26, Team 4: 24. Next week will be the last round be­fore semi fi­nals and, with teams be­ing so close on points, matches are ex­pected to be fiercely con­tested as play­ers com­pete for a place in the semis.
