Tight tus­sles in Stawell ten­nis

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Stawell’s Fri­day night ten­nis com­pe­ti­tion pro­duced two tight tus­sles.

In blus­tery con­di­tions, the top two sides hit the courts, with Frew­stal gain­ing the ad­van­tage over Stawell Toy­ota after the tea break, win­ning four of the next six sets.

It was three sets apiece in the fi­nal six matches, so Frew­stal’s lead re­mained the dif­fer­ence in the end as it held a seven-game mar­gin and clearly took top po­si­tion on the lad­der.

Madi Free­land, Pat Hall and Tarnee Orr dom­i­nated the courts to en­sure Frew­stal’s vic­tory, while Stawell Toy­ota’s De­clan Pyke and Jonah O’shan­nessy were their team’s best con­trib­u­tors.

The night’s other con­test was even closer as Far­rers Tyre­power scraped home by three games over David O Jones Mitre 10.

Far­rers Tyre­power won the first three of the last six sets and looked to be home, but Mitre 10 ral­lied to win the fi­nal three sets to just miss out.

Far­rers Tyre­power cap­tains Joel Free­land and Amy Hod­getts stepped up when they were needed, com­bin­ing in the mixed sec­tion to score an 8-1 vic­tory.

Mitre 10’s Richard Dodds and Seth Blake never gave in for their side as they had un­de­feated rounds.

This week will see first-placed Frew­stal play fourth-placed David O Jones Mitre 10 and sec­ond-placed Stawell Toy­ota plays third-placed Far­rers Tyre­power.
