Euroa Gazette - - GAZETTE SPORTS -

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.
