Western Suburbs Weekly - - Sport - War­ren Hard­ing

ROUND 3 of the State League Ten­nis had Aus­tralian-ranked ju­nior Will Hann from Cottes­loe face off against for­mer part­ner and Scar­bor­ough res­i­dent Tris­tan Schoolkate, who now plays for Dalkeith.

Hav­ing made the fi­nal of the Aus­tralian un­der-16 dou­bles and win­ning a Grade 4 ITF to­gether, friend­ships were set aside in a clash of the ti­tans.

Hann broke through early but Schoolkate de­liv­ered with a 4-6 6-3 6-1 win.

The re­sult set up a 4-1 rub­ber win for the un­de­feated Dalkeith Dol­phins.

At Alexan­der Park , tour player Bry­dan Klein, who fea­tured in last year’s fi- nals for Mos­man Park, re­turned this year to play for Hens­man and sur­vived a tight match against Alexan­der Park’s Ed­die Bourchier 6-0 6-7 6-4.

Hens­man’s Zach Itzstein de­liv­ered a 7-5 7-5 win over ris­ing star Jerome Ia­coni to set up his team’s first win 41 fol­low­ing two draws.

Bayswa­ter looked a very dif­fer­ent side with the in­clu­sion of tour player Gavin Van Peperzeel, who led them to a close win over Mt Law­ley.

Pep­per­mint Grove went down to Royal Kings Park two rub­bers to four and take on Dalkeith at home next week.
