The matches and fi­nal out­comes be­tween these two teams have been close all sea­son.

Lawn’s team held a one game ad­van­tage at half time and only ex­tended that by an ex­tra game at full time to fin­ish the night two games ahead.

Both teams won six sets each but it is the over­all games that count for the fi­nal score.

Todd Mar­shall had a good night win­ning all four of his sets.

In the other fix­ture Glen Botes’ team edged out Layton Mitchell’s 58-55.

It was an­other close night be­tween these two teams with both teams also win­ning six sets each and the leader chang­ing three times.
