PENNANT ONE

After three rounds of the Sunraysia Table Tennis summer pennant Pinnacle Packers remain the only undefeated team in pennant one. In the absence of young gun Dillon Chambers, who this week is training in Melbourne for the upcoming Australian Junior National titles starting next week, the Packers inflicted the first defeat on Max Miller Carpets winning seven rubbers to four.

MAX MILLER CARPETS V PINNACLE PACKERS

p1There were some very close tussles with four five setters in the first five matches. The first game of the night featured a hard fought five set win byCarpeter Gavin Minter over veteran Kevin Johns with Minter taking the points 11-6 5-11 11-9 6-11 11-7. Minter later started off brilliantly against opposing number one Neil Rodrigues winning the first two games before Rodrigues was able to recover and win in a great comeback 6-11 9-11 11-5 11-2 11-8. In the first doubles Rodrigues, who won three singles, and his partner Darren Robinson also had to recover from another 0-2 deficit to win 8-11 3-11 11-8 11-7 11-6  against Shannon Bowen and Minter indicating the Carpeters were not far out of the contest.
The remaining five setter was the match of the night when Shannon Bowen, filling in for young Chambers, recovered from the jaws of defeat to win a thriller against Darren Robinson who played well to win two other singles. Struggling at two games to one down against Robinson and 8-2 down in the fourth Bowen lifted his game under pressure to then recover to win the fourth narrowly and in a tight finish Bowen took the fifth 12-10 in a great fight back.

SUNRAYSIA DAILY vs. WEIGHTMANS PACKAGING

p1Sunraysia Daily scored their second win in as many weeks when they defeated Weightmans Packaging 6-5. The Daily flew out of the blocks to lead 5-1 before Weightmans fought back but to no avail. Daily skipper Mark Dorman won three singles including a tremendous stoush with Andrew Cannard which went to five sets. Dorman won the first game and it then went game for game with the experienced Dorman hanging on against the determined Cannard to win 11-7 6-11 11-5 5-11 11-9. Later Cannard teamed with Lee Thomas to win a thriller in the second doubles against Dorman and Sam Foreman. This lengthy match featured many close games with the score line 6-11 11-8 11-13 14-12 15-13 in favour of Cannard and Thomas.

Sam Foreman played a key role for the Daily winning two singles, the first a four set win against Lee Thomas in the first match of the night to get his team off to an ideal start and then later an impressive three set win over the talented Joel Dorman. If Foreman can maintain this form the Daily will be thereabouts come finals time.

FISHERS IGA V MALLEE BEARINGS

In the contest of the two winless teams Fishers IGA took the points by the narrowest of margins against Mallee Bearings 6-5. With his team Mallee Bearings leading 5-4 Ed Hung started brilliantly against Jackson Tung to win the first two games and at 10-9 in the third he held a match point which would have secured his team’s first win however it wasn’t to be as Tung held his nerve to narrowly grab the third.p1From that point Tung displayed some tremendous shots particularly the heavy top spin forehand he possesses to go on and win in five sets 11-13 10-12 12-11 11-5 11-6. This had been a classic encounter between Hung and Tung which carried more value given the position of the match. At five rubbers all Fishers experienced number three Peter Bishop defeated Damien Ford in three sets to give Fishers their first win.
For Mallee Bearings Wayne Carmichael won three singles including a four set win over brother Gavin Carmichael while for Fishers Tung and Gavin Carmichael won two singles each while the doubles were shared.

 

 

PENNANT TWO

SPANLINE vs. TANKARD DENTAL

Tankard Dental remains the only undefeated team in pennant two after their sound 8-3 victory over Spanline. Sony Sefer, Abraham McDonnell and Henry Hornsby are proving to be a formidable combination and in this match they won three, two and one singles respectively in a solid team effort to grab the four points. After a quiet start to the season Sefer produced his A grade game this round to show his young team mates the way. This match included seven five set matches with Tankard’s winning five of these indicating what a close contest it was.p1Due to all the lengthy five setters this match went into the wee hours, the remainder of the stadium had been in fact packed up as the marathon continued. Captain Sefer was seen late in the evening justifying a committee enquiry as to the lateness of the contest. The tribunal will sit this week to wade through his notes and ascertain if a fine will be avoided!! Good luck Sony…..

Despite their loss Spanline sit second on the ladder will look at this match to gauge how they will fare this season. Veteran skipper Arnold Jago played well to win two singles while Nick Barlow won one. All Barlow’s singles matches went to five sets in what was a busy night for him. His team mate Tom Murphy also took part in three five set matches and despite the loss they were not far off the mark.

 

PINNACLE PACKERS   vs. FISHERS IGA

How important are doubles? Pinnacle Packers win five singles while opponents Fishers IGA win four. The Packers win no doubles and Fishers win both, result Fishers IGA win 6-5 their first success of the season while a lack of success in the doubles results in the Packers first failure of the season.

The Packers took the early lead 2-0 and then 4-2 courtesy of two narrow five set victories. In the first of these five setters Arthur Paar had to withstand a great comeback by Jackson Murphy to hang on and win 11-9 in the tense fifth. Paar won the first two games with his constant attacking game. The fast improving Murphy took the initiative in the third and fourth which set the scene for an exciting finish, the final score line indicated what a tremendous contest it was with Paar taking the match 11-7 11-7 5-11 8-11 11-9. p1The Packers Leon Brown won his second singles with another nail biter when he outlasted fill in Mark Kerr to win 11-7 6-11 11-6 9-11 12-10. Earlier in the first match of the night Brown started sensationally defeating Fishers skipper Robert Chiswell in straight sets. Fishers fought back when Chiswell teamed with Kerr in the second doubles to win against Arthur Paar and Leon Brown in yet another five setter 11-9 9-11 12-10 7-11 11-5. Up from pennant three and returning after a couple of seasons break, Mark Kerr had played a key role in the outcome. Apart from the doubles win he had earlier fought hard to defeat David Balshaw in five sets 11-6 9-11 11-8 5-11 11-6 a crucial result for Fishers in their quest for victory.

 

MAX MILLER CARPETS vs. MALLEE BEARINGS

p1In round one and now this round Matt Burns has won three singles and his form played a big part in his team Mallee Bearings defeating Max Miller Carpets 8-3. Burns accounted for his opponents in either three or four sets, however five setters were a feature in many of the remaining matches with six of the remaining eight going to the maximum. Burn’s skipper Seval Fuat also enjoyed a big night winning three singles as well. To cap off a really successful night Fuat and Burns combined to defeat Ash Morrison and Sam Mc Donnell 11-8 11-5 10-12 9-12 11-3 in the first doubles.

The second doubles was also won by the Mallee Bearings combination Fuat and Alex Keegan again in five sets 9-11 12-10 9-11 11-2 11-9 against Morrison and Laurie Plummer. While an 8-3 result may look lopsided as stated earlier Mallee Bearings did win four of the six five setters and when they next meet the Carpeters would be a chance.

 

 

PENNANT THREE

  Max Miller Carpets continued on their winning way in the latest round of the Pennant Three Summer Pennant with another big win, this time over Pinnacle Packers by 8 rubbers to 3.  Fishers IGA registered their first win, downing Mallee Bearings 6 to 5, and Sunraysia Daily continued on from where they left off last week with a decisive win over Weightmans Packaging 7 rubbers to 4.

MAX MILLER CARPETS vs. PINNACLE PACKERS

p2Karina Sullivan, Gary Hughes and Damon Southgate (Max Miller Carpets) look like the side to beat in this competition, having now won each week and handsomely too.  Their margins have been 8-3, 9-2 and 8-3.  This week Bernadette Fitzpatrick, Peter Kelly and Mary Fitzpatrick (Pinnacle Packers) were on the receiving end.  As is usual, however, the final score line does not always give a true indication of the game on the night.  Mary Fitzpatrick really worried Damon Southgate in their match, frustrating Damon for much of the game before going down in five sets, 11-9, 9-11, 11-4, 10-12, 5-11.  Earlier in the evening Bernadette also had a five set tussle with Damon, and was probably a bit disappointed that she could not finish the game off, having led two sets to nil, before going down 11-6, 11-8, 7-11, 6-11, 8-11.  Mary did get a win though, against Gary Hughes, handling his chop-chop game superbly to take the game in only four sets, 12-10, 6-11, 11-4, 11-9.  Gary started the night well for the Carpeters, defeating Peter Kelly in five 11-8, 11-4, 7-11, 10-12, 11-3 in an interesting encounter.  Karina Sullivan disposed of both Mary and Bernadette Fitzpatrick in three sets, but went down to the unorthodox play of Peter Kelly in four 9-11, 11-13, 11-3, 8-11.  Each side won one doubles match each, the highlight being Bernadette and Peter combining to defeat Karina and Gary comfortably 11-6, 11-9, 11-7.  For the winners then, Karina and Gary won two each, and once again Damon Southgate got a perfect three, and that makes him joint leader on the aggregate table with Mark Kerr.  For the Packers, their three rubbers came from their doubles win and a single win from Mary Fitzpatrick and Peter Kelly.

 

FISHERS IGA vs. MALLEE BEARINGS

p2Fishers IGA (Nicholas Dorman, Zubair Shahzad and Rachel Fitzpatrick) earned their first win of the season when they accounted for Mallee Bearings in what appears a close call, but the match was decided after the second doubles.  Nicholas Dorman filled-in for an absent Brian Hosking and won two singles (Duncan Kelly 11-4, 11-8, 15-13 and Colin Moore 11-2, 11-8, 9-11, 11-6) to set the match up for his team.  Zubair Shahzad shadowed Nicholas also winning two (Delaney Murphy in a tough match 11-4, 12-10, 5-11, 5-11, 11-8 and Duncan Kelly 11-5, 11-5, 11-5).  Dorman then combined with each of his team-mates in the doubles and that gave Fishers enough for victory, the last three singles all going to Mallee Bearings.  By winning these last singles, Mallee Bearings kept the percentage damage to a minimum.  Losers Mallee Bearings won five of the nine singles matches (Colin Moore 2, Delaney Murphy 2 and Duncan Kelly 1), but failed to get over the line in either of the all-important doubles, losing one in four sets and the other in only three, and therein was the reason for their defeat.

SUNRAYSIA DAILY vs. WEIGHTMANS PACKAGING

p2Sunraysia Daily (Mark Kerr, Sabrina Fitzpatrick and Karly Leach), after a shaky start to the season, are now hitting their straps, easily defeating Weightmans Packaging (Peter Fitzpatrick, Andrew Lewis, Jeremy Corrin).  Although at the conclusion of the second doubles the score line read 4-4, the writing was on the wall for the Packers that they would probably not pull a victory off.  The Packers started well, winning the first two matches Jeremy defeating Sabrina in four 11-8, 5-11, 11-7, 12-10 and Peter Fitzpatrick accounting for Karly Leach 11-3, 11-4, 11-4, but that was before Mark Kerr had come to the table.  He then defeated Andrew Lewis in three 11-9, 11-9, 11-4 and then combined with Sabrina in the doubles to down her husband Peter and Andrew Lewis in a good match 11-8, 8-11, 11-8, 9-11, and the fifth going to 21-19.  Sabrina’s relief at the end of this match was like a Grand Final moment!  And there was more to come from Sabrina, because the very next match saw her again up against husband Peter.  Peter started well leading 6-0 in the first before Sabrina chiselled away to level at 10-10 and then go on to take the first set 14-12.  Peter took the next two 11-5, 11-5 and led comfortably 8-4 in the fourth before losing his way, and the set 11-9.  The fifth went Sabrina’s way, again 11-9 in what turned out to be an important win for the Dailies.  Mark Kerr accounted for Jeremy Corrin in three sets and at that stage the Packers were down 4-2.  The Packers came back, however, and won the next two matches, Andrew Lewis defeating Karly Leach in three sets, and in the second doubles Fitzpatrick and Corrin won their first doubles match for the season, by defeating Kerr and Leach fairly easily in three sets, 11-8, 11-4, 11-6 to level the match at 4-4.  The last three singles all went to the Sunraysia Daily team, Kerr easily accounting for Peter Fitzpatrick in three sets, Sabrina Fitzpatrick then deciding the contest by defeating her partner from the recent Winter Pennant Andrew Lewis 7-11, 14-12, 12-10, 11-7 in what was their first competition encounter.  To make sure of the win, Leach then defeated Corrin in five sets in a match that could have gone either way, winning 9-11, 11-6, 9-11, 11-7, 11-9.  For the winners, Mark Kerr again won three matches, Sabrina an important two, and Karly one, and added to the one doubles, gave them seven rubbers to take the match.  Their opposition could only muster one win each, and the second doubles, to give them their four rubbers.

 

PENNANT FOUR

Two 6-5 results in pennant four this round; both matches could have gone either way. A big welcome to new player Laura Priestley who has joined the Fishers IGA team and also a big thank you to Ian Kelly who has filled in over the past two weeks for Max Miller Carpets and on each occasion has won two singles.

MALLEE BEARINGS vs. MAX MILLER CARPETS

p2Despite jumping out to a 3-0 lead and later a 4-1 lead Mallee Bearings could not maintain the pace with Max Miller Carpets able to recover courtesy of Sam Hensgen and Ian Kelly winning two singles. In addition the Carpeters won both doubles and in particular the first was a real highlight when Sam Hensgen joined forces with Gabriel McDonnell to defeat Lachlan Kelly and Ryan Hensgen in a real thriller 13-11 11-9 10-12 8-11 11-8, what a match which played a big part in the Carpeters first victory of the season.

Sam Hensgen inflicted the first defeat on Lachlan Kelly for the season winning in straight sets. Prior to this match young Kelly had won eight form eight singles in an excellent start to his first season of senior table tennis. In his first singles of the night he accounted for his father Ian in a close three setter 11-8 11-7 11-9. For Mallee Bearings both Ryan Hensgen and Lachlan Kelly won two singles each while Ben Hosking won one. It was the inability of Mallee bearings to trouble the scorers in the doubles which was costly in the end result as both teams were battling it out for their first victory of the season.

At five rubbers all Carpeter fill in Ian Kelly proved too steady for Ben Hosking winning 11-6 11-4 11-7 to give his team the 6-5 win in what had been a great recovery after the pressure was really on early.

FISHERS IGA vs. BISHOP BUILDERS           

p2In yet again another 6-5 result Bishop Builders maintained their undefeated run defeating Fishers IGA despite Mick Bacon winning three singles for Fishers. He now sits at the top of the singles aggregate with eight wins from nine starts as does Lachlan Kelly from Mallee Bearings.

As was the case in the other pennant four match, the winning team won both doubles which in the end proved to be the difference. The second doubles was the crucial match with Leonie Dunkley and Paul Fitzpatrick defeating Mick Bacon and Shirley Whitecross 11-8 8-11 11-9 8-11 11-8 in yet again another close tussle. Both Dunkley and young Fitzpatrick, in addition to this doubles victory, won two singles each. Dunkley had a tough  slog against Shirley Whitecross winning in five sets 6-11 11-6 11-7 9-11 11-7: a great match!! For Fishers Whitecross and new player Laura Priestley both won one singles each however again lack of success in the doubles was costly for Fishers as whoever was to win would be sitting at the top of the ladder.
