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.

In divi­sion three Long­wood strug­gled to find play­ers will­ing to go to Be­nalla Gar­dens but cap­tain Scott Mee­han led the charge with Ge­or­gia Gall in the sec­ond men’s, 8-6 and then backed that up with a nar­row de­feat with Mar­cello Mer­curi, 6-8.

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.

Mean­while at Vi­o­let Town, Euroa were in a tight strug­gle with their rapidly im­prov­ing young team.

De­spite los­ing the first two sets, Bella Vaz and Kalarni An­der­son fought back 8-6 as did Bede Red­fern and Dublin An­der­son 8-2.

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.

It was a great game but Vi­o­let Town were just a bit strong win­ning by seven games.
