Down­pour halts ten­nis

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

A thun­der­storm on Fri­day night ru­ined the chances of keen Stawell Fri­day night ten­nis play­ers com­plet­ing their rounds, as the sud­den down­pour left the courts wa­ter­logged be­fore the first matches had been com­pleted.

The washout favoured top side Frew­stal be­cause there is now only one round re­main­ing be­fore fi­nals be­gin and it has a clear lead from the rest of the pack.

This week Far­rers Tyre­power has a chance to take sec­ond spot on the lad­der from Stawell Toy­ota if it can man­age a sig­nif­i­cant win.

Last time these two sides met it was a 12-game mar­gin in Stawell Toy­ota’s favour, but Far­rers Tyre­power has shown much im­prove­ment since then and could eas­ily take hold of this match.

The women’s sec­tion will de­ter­mine who comes out on top with Tyre­power’s Amy Hod­getts, Kasey Mor­nane, Brid­get John­son and Dakota Cos­son look­ing to gain the ad­van­tage over Toy­ota’s Jodie Grainger, Mil­lie Fran­cis, Bon­nie Mcllvride and Erin Free­land.

In the sec­ond match David O Jones Mitre 10 might strug­gled to match Frew­stal.

Mitre 10 went down by 14 games at its last meet­ing so it will need the ball to bounce its way if it is to score an up­set.
