morning routine to ensure all his energies are focused on tennis rather than running 5kms before the match.
Lawn’s best were Steve Russell, Ben Honey, Emily Brown and Janelle Hartwig.
Section 2: Everton’s rotation policy is proving to be costly and is continuing to plague them with week to week results.
As last year’s Section 2 winners they were expected to figure once again, but are now struggling to hold a place in top four and after another defeat at the hands of top side Myrrhee will find it hard to hold on.
Myrrhee were relentless from the start and continued to put the pressure on Everton who were unable to find any rhythm or momentum.
Cathy Van Berlo, Di Griffin and Peter Allen were Myrrhee’s standout players, each winning 3 sets and for Everton Julie Deretic stood head and shoulders above her teammates playing a lone hand and captured 3 sets.
The surprise of the round occurred at the Barr Reserve where Corowa steamrolled Wang Hardcourt on their way to a convincing 9-3 victory.
Corowa are on a roll and if momentum and confidence are the keys to winning then look out any team that plays them in the next 3 weeks.
They have put themselves within striking distance of the top four with a number of confidence boosting performances lately.
Corowa’s was a team effort and were best served by Hayley Thompson, Shane Matthews and Don Mills (3 sets each).
Wang Hardcourt’s Marianna Hines, Anna Carrick, Jason Tan and Carmine Adamo battled against the odds and provided some resistance to the Corowa machine.
Rutherglen were never in danger of losing the points against a lacklustre Wahgunyah when they duck egged them.
Wahgunyah appeared to be another league to Rutherglen and were always chasing their tails to playing catch up tennis.
Rutherglen appear to have entrenched themselves in the top 4 but if they start to believe their own publicity and get ahead of themselves they may drop out of the four.
On last week’s performance it’s hard to see that happening but with 2 teams breathing down their necks a small stumble may be enough.
Hard to find individual performances in the Rutherglen team but Mitch Carmody, Zavier Talbot and Helen Fuge were the best.
Wahgunyah had Jake Boyle, Isaac Wenke and Jake Goddard amongst their best and these up and comers are Wahgunyah’s hope and future.
Section 3: Wahgunyah continue to go from strength to strength with another convincing win over Rutherglen.
Wahgunyah’s Dylan, Josh, Rob and Corey have gelled well and become a formidable team that will take some beating come finals time.
Jack, Sarah, Henry and Emma are developing quickly and every week their results are showing improvements and Rutherglen can count on them continuing to improve and become the backbone of the club in the future.
Corowa didn’t let an opportunity slip when they played Wooragee and gained some percentage with a 5-1 victory.
The numbers say it was an easy win but Woorage (Jack, Eamon, Connor and Lucy) were close to taking the points in another couple of sets but the size and experience of Corowa’s Jake, David, Daniel and Aaron was the telling factor in the end.
