Early form de­cides con­test

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Games won early in Stawell Fri­day night ten­nis proved to be the dif­fer­ence as both vic­tors held early leads.

Stawell Toy­ota led by 16 games af­ter the first group of matches and main­tained this gap for most of the night, even­tu­ally record­ing an 11-game vic­tory over David O Jones Mitre 10.

Young guns De­clan Pyke and Jonah O’shan­nessy man­aged to re­main un­beaten for the night, with O’shan­nessy scor­ing an im­pres­sive 8-0 win in his sin­gles match against Will Mcder­mott.

Mitre 10’s women tried to give their team the vic­tory with Kim Hut­ton and Court­ney Ellen win­ning their three sets, but it was not to be.

In the night’s other match Frew­stal kept hold of top spot with another solid win over Far­rers Tyre­power.

Frew­stal also led by 16 games af­ter the first group of matches but had big wins in fi­nal sets to ex­tend the fi­nal to­tal to a 30-game tri­umph.

Chris Simp­kin and Jamie Bach were the best for Frew­stal, while Far­rers Tyre­power’s David Simp­kin played a lone hand in win­ning his three sets, the best an 8-1 re­sult in mixed com­pe­ti­tion with Brid­get John­son.

This week the top two teams meet in match of the round with Frew­stal and Stawell Toy­ota yet to taste de­feat. Far­rers Tyre­power will try to keep David O Jones Mitre 10 on the bot­tom of the lad­der.
