PENNANT ONE

Despite having the bye in round 14 Weightmans Packaging still retain in top position on the pennant one ladder going into this weeks final round. Weightmans managed to hold top position courtesy of bottom team Pinnacle Packers defeating second placed Mallee Bearings 6-5 in a tremendous match which now has ensured an exciting final round to come.

– Pinnacle Packers 6 (Shannon Bowen 3, Peter Midgley 1) d Mallee Bearings 5 (Wayne Carmichael, Ed Hung 2, Jackson Murphy 1)

The Packers have given themselves a chance to make the four after languishing at the foot of the ladder all season. Mallee Bearings have the bye in the final round and could lose the important double chance as Max Millers Carpets have joined them on seven wins. The Packers this week play the Carpeters in what the grading committee could not wish for a better finish to the season.

p1Shannon Bowen was the stand out player for the Packers this round winning three singles including a commanding straight sets win over aggregate leader Wayne Carmichael. Bowen also combined with team mates Shane Carmichael and fill in Peter Midgley to win both doubles. This was the Packers second win in as many rounds and if Bowen can sustain this form he could lead his team to an unlikely final four position and once there anything could happen in this even competition.

 

 – Max Miller Carpets 6 (Joel Dorman, John Gray 2, Jackson Tung 1) d Fishers IGA 5 (Andrew Cannard, Kevin Johns 2)

Max Miller Carpets were successful for the fifth time in succession when they accounted for Fishers IGA 6-5 in another close result. The Carpeters now have given themselves a chance with this win to grab the vital second position and double chance when they line up against Pinnacle Packers in the final round.

Number three player John Gray continued his good form winning two singles as did Joel Dorman. Gray scored a good win over opposing number one Andrew Cannard 11-9 13-11 12-14 11-9 in a match of great concentration. Gray combined with Dorman in the first doubles to defeat Cannard and Kevin Johns 8-11 11-6 11-74-11 11-5 in another important result for their team.

For Fishers both Andrew Cannard and Kevin Johns won two singles each with Johns thwarting John Grays’s attempt to win three singles. p1Johns outlasted Gray in another lengthy five setter. Fishers are now under pressure to hold fourth position on the ladder as they face up to pennant leaders Weightmans Packaging in round 15.

 

PENNANT TWO

All matches this week provided a 6 rubbers to 5 result.  Daniel Jansen is now all but the aggregate winner in this grade, after another 3 game haul, as his rival Sony Sefer who was one game behind, faltered, and slipped another game behind.

 

– Fishers IGA 6 (Sony Sefer, Seval Fuat 2, Colin Moore 1) d Mallee Bearings 5 (Trevor Gebert 3, Ashley Morrison 1)

Top side Fishers IGA played fourth placed Mallee Bearings in this Round 14 clash.  Mallee Bearings were looking for a win, firstly to ensure themselves a place in the finals, but also to turn around their recent run of losses.  However, this game was not to provide the win they sought, but they did by virtue of Pinnacle Packers loss, lock up fourth spot on the ladder, and will find themselves playing in the first round of finals action at least.  Mallee Bearings Trevor Gebert led from the front, winning his three singles matches, and his doubles match with Ashley Morrison.  p1Gebert started the night in a hurry, sweeping the otherwise difficult Seval Fuat off the table in straight sets 11-5, 11-7, 11-8.  His match against opposing number one Sony Sefer promised to be more difficult, and it was, but Gebert needed only four sets to get the win, 11-8, 9-11, 13-11, 11-7.  Later in the night he met Colin Moore; Moore surprised Gebert taking the first 11-8, but Gebert then came back strongly taking the next three 11-8, 11-7, 11-3.  Apart from Gebert, only Ashley Morrison could add to the tally of singles wins, with a solitary win, over Colin Moore in three sets.  Morrison has been in good form of late, but in this match he could not better Sefer or Fuat.  Both these matches went to five sets, Sefer coming from behind to win 12-10, 9-11, 9-11, 12-10, 11-6, whilst Fuat jumped to a 2 sets to love lead 11-7, 11-8, before Morrison bounced back in the third 11-3, continued in the fourth 11-8, but in a tense fifth, Fuat got the break and won it 11-9.  For the winners then rubbers came from Sefer and Fuat (2 each), Colin Moore (a solid four set win over fill-in Steve Pongrac), and the three set doubles result of Sefer and Fuat over Morrison and Pongrac.  Sefer’s failure to secure three singles wins sees him slip a further game behind Daniel Jansen on the aggregate ladder, Jansen now has 37 games to Sefer’s 35 with one round remaining.

 

– Tankard Dental 6 (Robert Chiswell, Andrew Jones 2, Connor Lavery 1) d Pinnacle Packers 5 (Daniel Jansen 3, Leon Brown 1)

This game was third against fifth.  Pinnacle Packers wanted the win to keep any hopes they had of making it to the finals alive, and Tankard Dental was looking to consolidate third spot.  Tankard’s Robert Chiswell and Andrew Jones both won two rubbers and their number three Connor Lavery one (against fill-in Matt Ljubic).  Both Chiswell and Jones each accounted for Leon Brown and Matt Ljubic, but lost to Daniel Jansen, Jansen winning three singles for the tenth time this season, and in so doing moved two games clear of his nearest rival at the top of the ladder with only one game now remaining.  p1Jansen won two of his three rubbers in confident style, but when Andrew Jones came to the other end of the table, things were a little different.  Jansen took the first set easily 11-3, but Jones upped his work rate in the second and Jansen had to work much harder to win it 14-12.  Jones really got going in the third and fourth sets and Jansen had no answer for his game.  Jones raced away with those sets 11-4, 11-3.  And on to the fifth set, and both players settled in.  The set went point for point, and Jansen outlasted Jones 12-10 to take the match.  Pinnacle Packers were without regular number three Glen Bell for this game, and instead had the services of Pennant Three aggregate leader Matt Ljubic.  Although Ljubic failed to win a match, he acquitted himself well, and in particular in his doubles match with Daniel Jansen.  That match was won by Chiswell and Lavery in a very close and entertaining five sets.  This really was anybody’s match, sets alternating, and the fifth going to 16-14 before there was a result.  Tankard Dental took the win, thus ending Pinnacle Packers hopes of playing in the finals.  The Packers are two games behind the fourth placed team, with only one match remaining.  A close finish, Tankard Dental 22 games to Pinnacle Packers 19.

 

– Spanline 6 (Laurie Plummer, Arnold Jago, Arthur Paar 2) d Max Miller Carpets 5 (Ross Humphreys 3)

Second placed Spanline took on bottom-of-the-ladder team Max Miller Carpets and the Spanline trio of Arthur Paar, Arnold Jago and Laurie Plummer would be pleased enough with their individual form, however losses in three and four sets in the doubles, is a worry, two weeks out from the finals.  And despite not winning either doubles, each Spanline player won two singles, losing out to the in-form Ross Humphreys.  These singles victories were enough to seal the win.  Max Miller Carpets number one Matthew Burns was replaced in this game by Alex Keegan.  But the man of the match was undoubtedly Ross Humphreys. p1He obliterated Laurie Plummer 11-5, 11-5, 11-5, took a couple of sets to measure Arnold Jago up, and then went on to win 13-11, 6-11, 11-3, 11-7, and had a quite similar match against Arthur Paar, taking that one 11-8, 12-14, 11-7, 11-4.  Both doubles fell to he and his partners – with Keegan he defeated Paar and Plummer easily 11-6, 11-7, 11-6, and with his number three Karina Sullivan won well over Spanline’s number one and two Paar and Jago 6-11, 11-9, 11-9, 11-6.  Max Millers Karina Sullivan and Alex Keegan failed to win a singles, but both had a chance to register a victory – Sullivan drove Arthur Paar to distraction for five sets before he could claim victory, and Alex Keegan almost snuck home against Arnold Jago.  Jago took the first two sets 6 and 7, Keegan took the third and fourth sets 6 and 7, but Arnold had too much fire power, and took the fifth 11-7.  The result sees Spanline stay second on the ladder – equal on points but separated by percentage with Fishers IGA.

 

PENNANT THREE

Matt Ljubic goes to the top of the aggregate ladder, but only by the smallest of margins, and Pinnacle Packers win their second game for the season, against Mallee Bearings.

 

– Max Miller Carpets 6 (Emily Carmichael, Matt Ljubic 2) d Fishers IGA 5 (Peter Kelly 3, Vaughan Waters, Harrison Cottrell 1)

Fishers IGA captain Peter Kelly, playing probably his best table tennis of the season, with his team almost pulled off an upset win against Matt Ljubic’s Max Miller Carpets trio.  Kelly won three singles, the highlight no doubt his defeat of new aggregate leader Ljubic in five sets.  His team mates Vaughan Waters and Harrison Cottrell both contributed one singles win, but the team’s inability to get home in either of the doubles matches was the difference between victory and defeat.  Kelly was in good form, conceding only 15 points in his win against Karly Leach, and later in the night another straight sets win against Emily Carmichael, a player who has been showing good form recently.  But it was his win against Ljubic that was the match of the night.  Ljubic started confidently, and took the first 11-7, Kelly dug in and won the tough second set 13-11, and then with the momentum, took the third 11-8.  Ljubic then came back, and hung on to take the fourth 12-10.p2  Kelly got the break on Ljubic in the fifth, and kept it, going on to take the set and match 11-7.  Fishers started well in the second doubles, and led 2 sets to 1, before Ljubic and Karly Leach took control against Kelly and Cottrell, taking the last two sets 11-7, 11-3.  Max Millers though took the win, courtesy of two singles wins to Ljubic and Carmichael, and their two doubles wins.  By virtue of these two wins Ljubic now goes one game clear at the top of the aggregate table with only one more round to go when the two top teams play the two bottom teams.  The Carpeters then, won 6 rubbers to Fishers 5, and 23 games to 19.

 

– Pinnacle Packers 6 (Jeremy Corrin, Garry Hughes 2, Leonie Dunkley 1) d Mallee Bearings 5 (Brian Hosking 2, Lachlan Kelly, Mick Bacon 1)

This was a match in which the result was decided after only the sixth rubber !!, but Mallee Bearings fought hard for this “respectable” defeat.  Pinnacle Packers took a close 6 rubbers to 5 and 24 games to 20 win against a Mallee Bearings team which was missing its regular numbers one and two.  Bernadette and Sabrina Fitzpatrick were replaced for this match by Lachlan Kelly and Brian Hosking respectively.  It was a more even performance from the Pinnacle Packers side that proved the difference, Jeremy Corrin subbing for their absent captain and taking two singles, then inspiring Gary Hughes to do the same, and also combining with Hughes to win the first doubles.  These performances were good, but better was to come from their number three Leonie Dunkley.  Dunkley won but a solitary singles match, but it was the scalp of Lachlan Kelly, who sits fourth on the aggregate.  Dunkley would be the first to admit she is not half the player of Kelly, but on this night she was, and more.  It was a match that certainly had Kelly’s attention, but he could not get the better of his opponent, indeed Dunkley it was who was leading, and Kelly playing catch-up.  p2Dunkley showed her hand in the first, refusing to bow to Kelly, and held him out to win 14-12.  Kelly then had to work almost as hard in the second, but he managed to get the one small break he needed to take it 12-10.  Dunkley bounced straight back and took the third 11-7, Kelly dug deep in the fourth with an 11-8 win, but it was a very happy Leonie Dunkley who outlasted her opponent in the fifth with an 11-7 scoreline.  It was this match which was really the decider, certainly on paper the conclusion was foregone, almost a mismatch, but Dunkley has spent this season well, and although not a lot of wins have come her way, she is improving nonetheless.  Indeed, she almost backed up this win with another, against Mick Bacon, in another five set encounter.  After being outplayed in the first two sets 11-6, 11-6, Leonie evened the match with two determined third and fourth sets 11-9, 11-8.  Bacon, however, had enough left for a final surge in the fifth, and took it 11-6.

 

PENNANT FOUR

The wash up of this round was that top team Max Miller Carpets assured themselves of top position with one round to play however the double chance is still up for grabs with Fishers IGA on seven wins and Mallee Bearings and Bishop Builders on 6 wins with one round to play. This week will again see some interesting results as usual, also the singles aggregate, which has been neck and neck all year, between the Hensgen brothers Sam and Ryan will see a final result. Going into round 14 Sam was leading by one. Amazingly he lost two singles and with Ryan winning three Ryan now leads by one. This week they play each other and Sam knows he must defeat Ryan to share the trophy or win it outright as team mate Paul Fitzpatrick, fresh from a family holiday, will also put pressure on Ryan. An exciting climax to the aggregate race awaits.

 

Max Miller Carpets vs. Bishop Builders

Max Miller Carpets secured top position leading into this season finals with a big 9-2 win over Bishop Builders. Junior mum Lisa Hill was recruited by Denise Henderson, after witnessing her having a hit with her kids on Monday evening, to replace Georgia Tilley in the Max Miller Carpets line up while Matt Johns covered for Paul Fitzpatrick in the Bishop Builders team.

 

– Max Miller Carpets 9 (Lisa Hil, Cole Keegan 3, Ben Hosking 2) d Bishop Builders 2 (Sam Hensgen 1)

The Carpeters raced to a 3 nil lead after the first round of singles and from here they did not look back. Lisa Hill led the way and what a night she had winning three singles including a straight sets win over then aggregate leader Sam Hensgen. Earlier Sam had been defeated in a great five setter against Cole Keegan who also won three singles. His 10-12 11-9 6-11 17-15 11-5 was a show of great concentration.

Carpeters skipper Ben Hosking was very happy with the result leading into the finals. He was able to win two singles defeating Matt Johns in a lengthy five setter 10-12 13-11 4-11 12-10 13-11. Hosking lowered his colours to Sam Hensgen in a real struggle 11-8 12-10 8-11 5-11 8-11. p2A great fight back by Sam as two games to love down he was facing a nought on the singles scoreboard.   Hosking also teamed with Lisa Hill to win the second doubles in four sets over Hensgen and Geoff Keegan.

With this victory the Carpeters have cemented top position in what will be an interesting finals series however one round remains and we all know you should take it one week at a time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

– Fishers IGA 8 (Ryan Hensgen 3, Helen Frania 2, Michael Hensgen 1) d Mallee Bearings 3 (Ellie Midgley 2, Claire Ljubic 1)

Third placed Fishers IGA proved too strong for Mallee Bearings winning 8-3 and in doing so these two sides have traded places on the ladder. Fishers now enjoy the double chance in second place with one round to play this week. Skipper Ryan Hensgen led the way for Fishers with three singles victories which has taken him to the singles aggregate lead. He was under pressure against Ellie Midgley but prevailed 7-11 11-7 11-6 5-11 11-7 a great five setter.

The fast improving Helen Frania offered excellent support to Ryan by winning two singles, her straight sets win over opposing number one Claire Ljubic was impressive as she forced errors by keeping the ball in play. Apart from her two singles Helen also combined in the second doubles with Ryan to defeat Claire Ljubic and Ellie Midgley 11-3 14-12 6-11 12-10.p2The girls are still in the mix however have lost six of their past seven matches, prior to that they strung five wins together so they cannot be discounted when the finals arrive.
