Top drawer ten­nis on the ta­ble

The Oban Times - - Sport -

SOME very ‘en­ter­tain­ing games’ have been played in the lat­est rounds of Fort Wil­liam’s ta­ble ten­nis league.

Last week in divi­sion two, Joe Rob­son faced new­comer Ritchie Ces­nu­laitis, the lat­ter of whom put up a good fight, lev­el­ling the match at one game all be­fore Joe took the third game 11-5. Ritchie then fought back but nar­rowly lost the fourth game 13-11 and thus the match 3-1.

Joe then played John Steele and, de­spite some tight games en­su­ing, Joe took all three games to win 3- 0. Neil Cameron and Aileen McFadzean also faced each other, with Aileen com­ing out on top 3- 0. She then played John Steele in an­other close-fought match in which John nar­rowly lost the first two games 9-11, but then took the third game by the same score. Aileen, how­ever, won the fourth game to record a 3-1 vic­tory.

In divi­sion one, Steve Crook con­tin­ued his un­beaten run by de­feat­ing John Grant 3- 0.

John also played Monte Bleas­dale and as usual pro­vided a stern test for the Fort’s num­ber two, but de­spite los­ing the first two games and then pulling the score back to 1-2, Monte took the fourth game 11-7 to record a 3-1.

This week in divi­sion two, cur­rent league leader Joe Rob­son had a real bat­tle with Neil Cameron, in a match which saw Neil take the first game 14-12, only for Joe to level the score by tak­ing the sec­ond game. Neil then took the third game 12-10, but Joe again lev­elled as he won the fourth game 11-9. The de­cid­ing fifth game was equally tight but Joe pre­vailed as he won 11-9 to take the match 3-2.

Joe then took on John Steele in an­other closely fought con­test, but could not pull off an­other vic­tory which John won 11-7, 12-14, 11-7 and 11- 8. John also played his name­sake Ste­wart but found the lat­ter too strong as Ste­wart eased to a com­fort­able 3- 0 vic­tory.

In divi­sion one, leader Steve Crook proved far too strong for An­gus Mac­Don­ald when he recorded a 3- 0 vic­tory.
