Heart­break time for ju­nior play­ers

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - GAZETTE SPORT -

With only a week left in the sea­son, it is now heart­break time for some play­ers.

They have worked hard all year only to be knocked out just be­fore the grand fi­nal.

Laber­touche White started well in A grade, win­ning the first dou­bles.

War­ragul set­tled down and played good con­sis­tent play to win the next two dou­bles games, giv­ing them the lead go­ing onto the sin­gles.

Both Andrew and Stu­art from Laber­touche have been strong all year in their sin­gles and they kept up that rep­u­ta­tion, win­ning the first two sin­gles.

This left the last game for the night to de­cide who would go through to the fi­nal.

Josh for War­ragul hadn’t lost a game all night and he wasn’t go­ing to let his team down, and War­ragul are play­ing again next week.

War­ragul Blue had a few fill-ins for B/C grade, which put them be­hind to start with.

Ellinbank had their full team back and started well with a three-set win in the first game.

War­ragul were ca­pa­ble in win­ning the next dou­bles, but un­for­tu­nately, this was the only win for them as Ellinbank just kept win­ning.

Ellinbank started well in D grade, win­ning all the dou­bles, al­though Ja­cob and Willem made them work hard for the last dou­bles.

Is­abelle gave Drouin their first win for the night, win­ning her sin­gles but again un­for­tu­nately it was the only game for Drouin on the night, with Ellinbank win­ning the rest of the sin­gles.

Ellinbank started with a hard-fought win against Drouin in E grade.

Drouin, who have been strong all year, then came back with solid per­for­mances to win the rest of the dou­bles. Alec then put Drouin into a strong po­si­tion by win­ning the first sin­gles.

Matilda tried hard to start a come­back by win­ning her sin­gles for Ellinbank but Mylie put Drouin into the grand fi­nal with her sin­gles win.

Play­ers are re­minded to at­tend to re­ceive their dou­bles tro­phies on Fri­day night and give sup­port to those play­ing. Re­sults: A grade: War­ragul 3/225 def Laber­touche White 3/201.
