Young guns step up to senior grade
Keighan Hicks and Michael Nolan winning 8-5.
The women led by Judy Sands won 21-11 with Judy undefeated and 13 games up.
Thanks to Stevie MildredNicel for filling in for Swanpool and making the game possible.
Bogie held on winning two of the mixed and held on to a seven game win.
Finally in division two, Phil Mollison’s team travelled to Benalla.
Phil led the charge winning the first two men’s sets with Craig Mercuri and new player Barry Fischer.
The ladies were led by exBenalla star Faye Mollison, who combined with Sarah Chittick and Kerrie Smith to make it a clean sweep in the ladies.
The newly-weds, Phil and Faye, kicked off the mixed, combining well with an 8-4 which put the result out of Benalla’s reach winning by 17 games.
In division three Euroa Lawn played Tatong in a close game with Bede Redfern playing as number one man for the first time with Malachi and Dublin Anderson.
The men went down valiantly by eight games.
The women led by Tess Manson and debut players Maddie Andrews and Bella Vaz had success with Maddie Andrews undefeated and 12 games up.
Unfortunately only one mixed went our way again with Maddie Andrews and Dublin Anderson winning 8-4.
Tatong went on to win by four games.
Maddie Andrews made a great debut, being up 16 on the day.
At Longwood there were four debut players and a couple of experienced campaigners.
Scott Meehan, trying to encourage the youth, led the team (thanks Scott) combined with debutant Keily Jager for an 8-6 win followed by a win with Marcello Mercuri.
Marcello and Keily just went down 8-6 to a fairly strong Avenel team.
Molly Redfern and Niki Sales also made their debut combining with seasoned player Marnie Burton who was filling in.
Although Marnie and Niki went down in a tie breaker, the Avenel team were too strong.
Keily and Marnie had a late revival winning 8-3 but Avenel went on to win by 14 games.
A barbeque was held afterwards which was a lot of fun.
Special thanks to the Mercuri family for organising.
