with the Redfern’s narrowly going down.
Longwood remain undefeated by nine games and Marnie was the best on the day.
In division two, Moglonemby played Swanpool away and they missed their captain Marlene Hanrahan, who was out with the flu.
The team had a number of fill-ins which made it a tough day in the office.
It was great that Simon Bourke, Sally Hayes and Alan Haslam helped out.
In fact Alan and Sally combined for the only winning set, 8-6, with Swanpool winning by 38 games.
Meanwhile at Terip, Bogie Ranges kicked off their day well with Keigan Hicks and Declan Weston winning 8-3 whilst Judy Sands and Mary Dewis did likewise.
Unfortunately the men lost the next two sets whilst the women including Rowena Ellis were storming ahead winning all three sets with Rowena and Mary patching up their differences after last week’s injury scare, winning 8-1.
Michael Nolan and Mary held their end up, winning 8-5 to scrape home by nine games.
Euroa Lawn played all on their own at Euroa and had the pick of the courts.
Phil Mollison and Barry Fischer jumped out of the gates with an 8-4 and then backed it up with Craig Mercuri with a tie breaker.
Euroa went on to win comfortably by 20 games after winning all three mixed in an even performance.

Molly Redfern, Olivia Gall and Emilia Mercuri battled hard in the ladies.
Georgia and Emilia went on and won 8-3 to finish off a great day for Georgia.
Longwood went down by 31 games.

Then Madi Andrews and Kalarni combined for an 8-4.
In the mixed the Anderson duo of Dublin and Kalarni took out the first mixed 8-6.
