by a single win from second placed Weightmans Packaging. The doubles were crucial in this result with both going to Mallee Bearings in tight five setters.

In total there were four five setters with three going to the victors indicating how close the match really was.

For the ladder leaders Wayne Carmichael won three singles and participated in both doubles victories. His singles with opposing number one Joel Dorman was a highlight.p1Dorman smashed his way through the second and third games to take a two games to one lead and an upset was brewing. As the match went further into the fourth and fifth Carmichael was able to take control to win 11-7 7-11 9-11 11-6 11-3 in what had been an entertaining match.Earlier Dorman had his hands full with the improving Jackson Murphy. Murphy lost the first narrowly and then gained momentum to win the second and third. Dorman hung on grimly to take out what had been an excellent match 11-8 4-11 9-11 11-9 12-10.

For Mallee Bearings Ed Hung played a pivotal role winning two singles and partnering Carmichael in the first doubles. Hung scored two commendable victories over Jackson Tung in the first match of the night and then accounted for tough opponent John Gray in straight sets in the last match of the night.
Pinnacle Packers vs. Weightmans Packaging

– Weightmans Packaging 6 (Mark Dorman, Graeme O’Neill 2, Kevin Johns 1) d Pinnacle Packers 5 (Andrew Cannard 3, Shane Carmichael 1)

Despite fill in Andrew Cannard winning three singles for Pinnacle Packers, Weightmans Packaging proved too good winning 6-5 despite trailing 4-5 after Andrew Cannard defeated Mark Dorman in a see sawing five set struggle in the first of the last round of singles. In a consistent season this was only Dorman’s second loss with Cannard winning 11-8 9-11 12-10 9-11 12-10. In the next match Weightmans Graeme O’Neill outlasted Shane Carmichael in another lengthy five setter, to level the match at five rubbers all.p1Kevin Johns filling in for Weightmans then reversed an earlier in the season loss to Lee Thomas by winning in four sets to enable Weightmans to recover and finish strongly to narrowly take the points and grab second place on the ladder. Apart from Johns single singles win Mark Dorman and Graeme O’Neill won two singles each. These two also combined in the first doubles to defeat Cannard and Shane Carmichael 11-8 11-13 11-7 11-7 an important win in the wash up.

PENNANT TWO

The big mover this week in Pennant Two was Pinnacle Packers.  Kept to just one win for the season so far, and sitting at the bottom of the ladder, Daniel Jansen aided by Leon Brown and fill-in Anthony Fox had a good win over Max Miller Carpets to jump up two spots, to fourth.

– Pinnacle Packers 8 (Daniel Jansen, Leon Brown 3) d Max Miller Carpets 3 (Matthew Burns, Ross Humphreys, Nicholas Dorman 1)

Daniel Jansen, who sits one game behind Sony Sefer on the aggregate table, probably feels that his team’s position on the ladder this year is not where it should be.  His problem is that he does not have a regular number three, the graded player who was assigned to his team, now not able to play.  So continuity is a problem.  This week, however, everything fell into place, and his teammates Leon Brown and fill-in Anthony Fox helped the team to an 8 rubbers to 3 victory.p1  In a similar result to the previous match, Jansen and number two Brown won their 3 singles, and the team won both doubles.  Even though Anthony Fox failed to win a singles, he simply showed that he was a bit rusty, going down in four sets to the opposing number one Matthew Burns, almost stealing the match from Ross Humphreys, but losing in five, and losing to fill-in Nicholas Dorman in the last game of the night in four sets.  He and captain Jansen easily won their doubles against Ross Humphreys and Dorman in straight sets 3, 9 and 9.  Leon Brown, who sits at about number twelve on the aggregate had a night when he could do no wrong.  First match of the night against Nicholas Dorman went to five sets, he then defeated Matthew Burns in four, and did a similar job on Ross Humphreys in the last round of the singles.  If Leon can maintain this consistency, captain Jansen will be pleased !!

– Fishers IGA 8 (Seval Fuat, Sony Sefer 3) d Tankard Dental 3 (Andrew Jones, Robert Chiswell, Glen Bell 1)

Fishers IGA trio, Sony (never-say-die) Sefer, Seval (make-no-mistakes) Fuat and Colin (steady-as-she-goes) Moore recorded their fifth win of the season, out-playing Tankard Dental 8 rubbers to 3.  Even though they are a game behind ladder leaders Mallee Bearings, Fishers have the best percentage by far and are now starting to hit their straps.  Sefer and Fuat both won all their singles, and the team won both doubles, making this an impressive win.  The only rubbers Tankard could get were the singles matches against Fishers number three, Colin Moore. p1Moore’s one win, in the doubles with captain Sony Sefer, demonstrated his ability.  He combined with Sefer to win 12-10, 11-6, 4-11, 11-4.  This loss sees Tankard Dental slip from fourth to fifth on the ladder.  Sefer remains at the top of the aggregate ladder having won 17 of a possible 18 singles rubbers.

 

– Mallee Bearings 6 (Ashley Morrison, Trevor Gebert 2, Peter Fitzpatrick 1) d Spanline 5 (Arthur Paar, Arnold Jago 2)

Mallee Bearings sit at the top of the ladder after six rounds, having lost only one match.  This match against Spanline saw them squeak home 21 games all, and 6 rubbers to 5.  It was a good team performance from the Mallee Bearings trio.  Number one Trevor Gebert, and number two Ashley Morrison both won two singles matches.  This was matched by Spanline’s Arthur Paar and Arnold Jago also winning two singles.  The doubles went one to each team, and that made 5 rubbers apiece.  The difference then came down to the play-off between the two number threes.  This match was played early in the night, in the first round of singles, but this result hung in the air and decided the final outcome.  p1Mallee Bearings Peter Fitzpatrick, freshly promoted from Pennant Three, had the answer to Laurie Plummer on this occasion.  (In the first round, Plummer won in four sets).  Fitzpatrick dropped the first set 6-11, but then settled and hung on to take the next three 12-10, 11-9, 11-9.  Interestingly for Spanline, Arthur Paar defeated his opposite number, Trevor Gebert in three sets, but could not upset number two Ashley Morrison.  Morrison was not greatly troubled, and won this match in four sets.

PENNANT THREE

 

– Max Miller Carpets 8 (Matt Ljubic, Emily Carmichael 3, Karly Leach 1) d Mallee Bearings 3 (Bernadette Fitzpatrick, Sabrina Fitzpatrick 1)

Max Miller Carpets were untroubled to take this match, winning 8 rubbers to 3 and 25 games to 15.  Both Matt Ljubic and Emily Carmichael won their three singles, Karly Leach won one and the team won one doubles.  Young Ljubic is the big improver in this pennant this season, his game has improved out of sight to what it was in the Summer Pennant.  He has a good style and has the potential to improve, and his position at number two on the aggregate is proof of his talent.  He dropped only one set in his singles.  Teammate Emily Carmichael also was impressive, losing only two sets in her three victories.  The doubles matches were a different matter though, Mallee Bearings could have won both, instead of the single victory they scored. p2Captain Bernadette Fitzpatrick joined number three Mick Bacon to quite comfortably account for Matt Ljubic and Karly Leach, winning in three sets 6, 8 and 8.  The other doubles, though, was a match in which they put themselves in a winning position before their Max Miller Carpets opposition took control.  Bernadette, playing with her mother, Sabrina took the first two sets in a close game 11-8, 12-10.  Ljubic and Carmichael then got their act together, to outplay their opponents to take the next three sets 5,6 and 9.  The respective position of these two teams remains the same on the ladder.  The Carpeters went into the match in second position on the ladder and one game ahead of their opposition, and the win leaves them second, but now two games clear of Mallee Bearings.

 

– Weightmans Packaging 9 (Darren Greaves 3, Lachlan Kelly, Jeremy Corrin 2) d Pinnacle Packers 2 (Damen Southgate 2)

This was a match between the team at the top of the ladder and the team at the bottom.  Weightmans Packaging proved too strong for their opposition, winning quite easily 9 rubbers to 2.  Darren Greaves again won three singles, to keep his perfect record for the year, and his team-mates Lachlan Kelly and Jeremy Corrin chipped in with two apiece.  On top of that Weightmans won both the doubles to completely demoralise their opposition.  p2Captain Damon Southgate of Pinnacle Packers did put up a fight, taking matches from both Kelly and Corrin, and when playing the doubles with Leonie Dunkley came close to winning, losing the fifth set 13-11.  Pinnacle Packers number two Gary Hughes is still playing out of sorts, and was unable to contribute to the score, despite taking a set from both Darren Greaves and Jeremy Corrin.  So, Weightmans Packaging continue to sail along at the top of the ladder, and Pinnacle Packers are yet to break their duck.  They certainly have the talent; it is just a matter of putting it all together on the night.

 

 

 

 

PENNANT FOUR

Only two wins separate first to fourth in this pennant after six rounds and it could come down to the team that clicks on any one given night. The improvement in several of the players since the commencement of the season is noticeable particularly those taking the opportunity to get some coaching or have a hit on a Monday night.

 

– Bishop Builders 7 (Paul Fitzpatrick 3, Sam Hensgen 2, Geoff Keegan 1) d Fishers IGA 4 (Ryan Hensgen 2, Ellie Midgley 1)


This was a game of two halves with Bishop Builders taking control early winning the first five rubbers and then Fishers IGA fought back to grab four of the next six matches, the final result 7-4 in favour of the Builders. Paul Fitzpatrick was the stand out player for the victors winning three singles and partnering Sam Hensgen to win the first doubles. p2Paul’s match against Fishers number one Ryan Hensgen was a highlight going to five sets with Paul taking the points 3-11 11-9 11-7 7-11 11-7 in an important result for his team.
The Builders had an even team performance with Fitzpatrick winning three singles and skipper Hensgen two, while number three Geoff Keegan played well winning a singles and taking fill in Ellie Midgley to five before just going down 14-12 6-11 11-9 9-11 9-11.
The long awaited singles clash of brothers Sam and Ryan Hensgen took place in this match with Ryan taking the points 11-9 11-2 11-7 however Sam still leads the aggregate race by three wins from Claire Ljubic and Ryan.

 

– Mallee Bearings 9 (Claire Ljubic 3, Shirley Whitecross, Ellie Midgley 2) d Max Miller Carpets 2 (Cole Keegan 2)


This match was the tussle for top position on the ladder and Mallee Bearings proved too strong winning 9-2 in a powerful display. Yes “girl power’’ has taken over in pennant four and the combination of Claire Ljubic, Shirley Whitecross and Ellie Midgley are looking the team to beat at this early stage of the season. All the team have been training on Monday nights and the results of these sessions are showing on the score board. Skipper Claire again won three singles and her match with Cole Keegan was a highlight going to five sets with Claire taking the points 13-11 in a tense fifth. Shirley Whitecross and Ellie Midgley both won two singles matching their efforts from the previous round.p2Midgley has improved immensely since the start of the season and her 11-7 15-13 12-10 victory over opposing skipper Ben Hosking in the second match of the night set the scene for a very good result for the Mallee Bearing girls.
Carpeters’ skipper Hosking after a solid start to the season has tapered off in form and could possibly be still suffering from a summer premiership hangover. Can he lift like his beloved Adelaide Crows to get his team back on track? The shining light for Max Miller Carpets has been the form of young Cole Keegan who again won two singles, both five set marathons against Whitecross and Midgley. Cole has proven a model of consistency winning two singles every round and is well placed in the singles aggregate, a great achievement in his first season of table tennis.
