Mind­ing Minds con­tinue climb

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - Sport -

Mind­ing Minds have con­tin­ued their im­pres­sive climb off the bot­tom of the De­niliquin Lawn Ten­nis Club ta­ble with another win on Satur­day.

Two play­ers were three set win­ners in the match, with An­thony Michael for Mind­ing Minds and Barb Lyne for TA Ma­her both un­de­feated for the day.

An­thony Michael and son Jack played as sec­ond and fourth men for Mind­ing Minds and played to­gether in the men’s fourth set.

Their op­po­nents were Benjy Pisas­ale and John Si­bree.

The Michael fa­ther-son combo proved to be win­ners, eight games to four.

Mind­ing Minds won three sets to two in the men’s sets but TA Ma­her won three of the four ladies sets on of­fer.

At the changeover to the mixed sets TA Ma­her had the lead five sets to four.

Mind­ing Minds man­aged to claim two sets to one in the mixed to level the scores at six sets apiece.

The game count favoured Mind­ing Minds by the slimmest of mar­gins, with TA Ma­her trail­ing 69 to 68.

Tom Wet­ten­hall and Alan Wragge led Taskers Bat­tlers to a strong win over Elders, eight sets to four.

As this match was a clash be­tween first and sec­ond placed teams it was a one sided af­fair with only An­nie Bul­mer stand­ing in the way of Taskers and win­ning her three sets for Elders.

Warmer con­di­tions have put the Satur­day comp play- ers on no­tice that there may be warmer weather in store for the two rounds to com­plete be­fore Christ­mas.

Play­ers are re­minded that the af­ter­noon comp is sched­uled to play right through to Easter next year, with fi­nals to be played.

The ta­ble af­ter six rounds has Taskers Bat­tlers clear lead­ers with 57 points fol­lowed by Elders on 43 points.

Mind­ing Minds gets a lit­tle closer on 37 points and TA Ma­her are on 31 points.

Plan­ning is un­der­way for the Christ­mas Party to be held at 7pm on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 15.

Trivia will be the en­ter­tain­ment and Christ­mas fare will also be on the menu.
