Team closes in on first vic­tory

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Mitre 10 might have lost again in Stawell Fri­day night ten­nis against top side Frew­stal, but the side has im­proved ev­ery week.

The pre­vi­ous time the team faced Frew­stal it lost by 43 games. This round it went down by only 14.

Frew­stal held the lead early and went into the tea break with an eight-game lead and ex­tended it to 17 games be­fore the main mixed and sin­gles sets.

Each side then won three sets to fin­ish the night to give Frew­stal the fi­nal 14-game win­ning mar­gin.

Frew­stal’s Tarnee Orr and An­gus Wil­liams had un­beaten rounds. Richard Dodds’ hot form con­tin­ued for Mitre 10 with an 8-1 vic­tory with Seth Blake against Chris Simp­kin and Mark Walls, his best score in his three-set night.

Stawell Toy­ota hit back from last week’s loss to de­feat Far­rers Tyre­power by 12 games. Stawell Toy­ota hit the courts run­ning, win­ning seven sets to four be­fore the tea in­ter­mis­sion and held off the fast-fin­ish­ing Tyre­power, which then won seven of the re­main­ing 12 sets.

Stawell Toy­ota’s De­clan Pyke and Jonah O’shan­nessy com­bined to win their dou­bles against Les Mcleod and Dartag­nan Walls 8-2, while for Far­rers Tyre­power Amy Hod­getts and Dakota Cos­son gave their all.

This week Stawell Toy­ota takes on Mitre 10 and Far­rers Tyre­power will look to up­set Frew­stal’s run of vic­to­ries.
