PENNANT ONE:

– Pinnacle Packers 6 (Wayne Carmichael 3, Kevin Johns, Peter Midgley 1) d Fishers IGA 5 (Gavin Carmichael, Jackson Tung 2).

WAYNE Carmichael led Pinnacle Packers to a 6-5 victory over a Fishers IGA side after edging past his brother Gavin in a five-set thriller in the first round of the Sunraysia Table Tennis Association’s Summer Pennant 1 competition last week.
Wayne’s three singles wins, and his pivotal role in the second doubles with Peter Midgley, and singles contributions from Kevin Johns and Peter Midgley, took the Packers over the line 6-4, before Fishers No 2 Jackson Tung took the final singles rubber against Midgley.
p1The decisive clash between the Carmichael brothers occurred in the first round. The first two sets were shared, before Gavin won the third 11-8, showing great form after missing most of the winter pennant with illness.
But Wayne Carmichael, fresh from winning the winter singles aggregate, steadied to win the last two sets 11-9, 11-6.
Fishers’ Sony Sefer, newly promoted after a solid season in Pennant 2, took a set off Peter Midgley before succumbing in four sets, and Jackson Tung came back from a set down to comfortably defeat Kevin Johns.
Gavin Carmichael and Tung looked headed for a straight sets loss in the crucial first doubles, dropping the first two sets to Johns and Wayne Carmichael 11-6, 11-6, before taking the next three sets to level the match at 2-2.
Johns nullified Sefer’s attack with patient, short defence that kept his opponent from using his big forehand, winning in straight sets, while Gavin Carmichael accounted for Midgley in three tight sets.
Tung took the first set off Wayne Carmichael, but could not maintain the pressure, losing in four. Carmichael and Midgley then gave Pinnacle a 5-3 lead with a four-set win over Gavin Carmichael and Sony Sefer in the crucial second doubles.
p1After Johns lost in straight sets to Gavin Carmichael, Wayne Carmichael sealed the win for Pinnacle by downing Sefer, who, like other Pennant 2 graduates, found the step up to the top grade a large one.

– Max Miller Carpets 7 (Andrew Cannard, Graeme O’Neill 2, Peter Bishop 1) d Weightmans Packaging 4 (Joel Dorman 2, Ed Hung, Jackson Murphy 1).

In the other Pennant 1 match, Max Miller Carpets had a comfortable 7-4 win over Weightman’s Packaging.
Rising young star Jackson Murphy, who struggled in his first Pennant 1 winter season, got Weightman’s off to a flier with an attacking straight sets win over MMC No 2 Graeme O’Neill, and Weightmans’ No 1 Joel Dorman made it 2-0 downed Peter Bishop in four close sets.
p1MMC No 1 Andrew Cannard beat penholder Ed Hung in straight sets, then combined with O’Neill to defeat Dorman and Hung in straights, to level the match 2-2.
p1O’Neill then made up from his shock first-round loss by defeating an Dorman in five sets. Cannard gave MMC a 4-2 lead by eclipsing Murphy in straight sets, while Ed Hung used sidespin and counter attack take Peter Bishop in four sets.
Murphy and Dorman stretched Cannard and Bishop to five sets, before losign the fifth 11-4, and Dorman downed Cannard in four in the battle of the No 1s, before O’Neill secured the win for MMC with an efficient straight sets win over Hung.
Bishop made it a comfortable 7-4 win by edging out Murphy in five sets.

 

PENNANT TWO

Some new faces in Pennant Two for the start of the 2012 Summer Pennant.  Denise Henderson commenced her comeback to table-tennis, Matt Ljubic, aggregate winner in the recent Winter Pennant made his debut in the higher grade, and Nick Barlow returned after twelve months away from the game.

FISHERS IGA   v.   TANKARD DENTAL

Fishers IGA got of to an impressive start in this first round clash.  Captain Seval Fuat, number two Denise Henderson and number three Peter Fitzpatrick cruised to an easy win against the Tankard Dental team of Ashley Morrison, Colin Moore and Karina Sullivan, eight rubbers to three.  Denise Henderson played consistently to record three singles wins, even though she is playing under some difficulty.  Unable to use her left arm, Denise throws the ball into the air with her right hand to serve.  No faults were recorded !! p1Henderson needed only three sets to account for both Karina Sullivan and a disappointing Ashley Morrison (more of that later), but the last round match against Colin Moore was more difficult.  Moore could see that Henderson was tiring, and gave the match everything, but he was held out 12-10, 11-6, 5-11, 15-13.  Seval Fuat had a solid start to his career as captain, downing rival captain Ashley Morrison in straight sets, then finding the ever consistent Colin Moore a little more difficult, but winning none-the-less in four, but losing out to the ever improving, hard hitting Karina Sullivan in five sets.  Fuat took the first two sets easily 11-4, 11-6 before Sullivan showed any interest in the match.  She took the close third set 12-10, then held Fuat off to take the last two 11-8, 11-8.  Her captain Ashley Morrison could only garner one win for the night, against the oppositions’ number three Peter Fitzpatrick.  He had earlier lost badly to Fuat 11-8, 11-6, 11-8, and the scoreline against Henderson was even more lopsided, Henderson taking that 11-3, 11-2, 11-3.  No doubt Morrison will come good, he didn’t come third in the Winter Aggregate playing that way !!  Fishers took both doubles, Fuat and Henderson defating Morrison and Moore in four 11-5, 12-10, 5-11, 11-4, and later Fuat and Fitzpatrick downing Morrison and Sullivan in a more keenly contested five setter 11-5, 7-11, 11-4, 8-11, 11-7.  So, a good start for the Fishers side and an eight rubbers to three and 26 to 14 game win.  Tankard Dental will put this one behind them, and get down to business next round.

MALLEE BEARINGS   v   SPANLINE

Welcome back, Nick Barlow !!  Barlow returned to competitive table-tennis after an absence of twelve months, and promptly won his three singles.  And he did not seem unduly troubled either, needing only the minimum three sets to see off Matt Ljubic and Laurie Plummer, and taking only one more to finish off Arthur Paar.  Barlow’s three singles helped his side to an eight rubbers to three win in this first round clash against a team that consisted of two of the three players who won the Winter Pennant only a matter of weeks ago.  His captain Robert Chiswell still could not deal with two thirds of the Double Centurions (Paar and Plummer both defeated him in five), and could only spoil Matt Ljubic’s night, but it took him four sets to do that.  Leon Brown was firing well in this match, even though he lost early to Laurie Plummer in four sets, but then had a great tussle with Ljubic, Ljubic pushing Brown all the way, but Brown getting up in the fifth 11-8.  p1Then to rub salt into Spanline’s wounds, Brown took Arthur Paar to five sets, and beat him.  Both doubles went to Mallee Bearings, Paar and Plummer looking good at the end of their first set against Chiswell and Barlow when they took it 11-2.  However, Chiswell and Barlow were only practising, they ripped through the next three sets 11-3, 11-4, 11-3 to take the smiles off their opponents faces.  The second doubles between Chiswell and Brown on one end, and Paar and Ljubic on the other was much more competitive.  Chiswell and Brown got home 11-8, 8-11, 11-7, 7-11, 11-7.  Mallee Bearings then started the season with a good win 8 rubbers to 3 and 29 games to 18.  Not much to smile about at the other end, although Laurie Plummer continued his consistent play, picking up two singles wins (against Brown in four and Chiswell in five).  Matt Ljubic’s debut showed he has the makings of succeeding at this level, as mentioned he took Leon Brown to five sets, and the much more experienced Robert Chiswell conceded a set to him in his match.  He also played a solid doubles match with his captain Arthur Paar, and they will surely improve over the course of the season.

 

PENNANT THREE

The start of the 2012 Summer Pennant sees four teams line up for competition in Pennant Three.  Two games played therefore, and this week, two big wins.

MAX MILLER CARPETS   vs.   WEIGHTMAN’S PACKAGING

Max Miller Carpets captain Nicholas Dorman and his number two Brian Hosking started the season in perfect style, both winning three singles, and their doubles.  In the case of Dorman that was both doubles.  In a very one-sided game, the Carpeters outplayed the Weightman’s team nine rubbers to two.  Only Ryan Hensgen, playing at number three for the victors dropped rubbers, but he played well enough, winning his match against his opposite number, and younger brother, Sam Hensgen.  Dorman was untroubled throughout the night, none of his five matches going beyond three sets.  Hosking had to play a lot harder though, it took him four sets to defeat Sam Hensgen, and five sets to get the better of Weightman’s captain Sabrina Fitzpatrick, and her number two Karly Leach. p2Leach almost pulled off her match, she was two sets down and levelled at two sets all.  The fifth set was finally won by Hosking 17-15, but Leach held three match points and could not convert.  Ryan Hensgen for his part, contributed one rubber by defeating brother Sam in five sets also.  Earlier he had lost to Fitzpatrick in three, and Leach in four.  As indicated, both doubles also went the Carpeters way, Dorman and Hosking defeating Fitzpatrick and Leach 13-11, 11-9, 11-7, and the second doubles combination of Dorman and Ryan Hensgen downed Fitzpatrick and Sam Hensgen.

DUNKLEY SCALES   vs.   SUNNY DAILY

Dunkley Scales trio, Jeremy Corrin, Garry Hughes and Leonie Dunkley combined well to take this game eight rubbers to three.  The three of them won two singles each, and the team won both doubles.  p2Only Sunny Daily’s Lachlan Kelly prevented the game from being a white-wash with three singles wins.  However, he could not keep his team in the match, with both doubles matches being decided in three sets.  And Kelly had to work  for his singles wins; it took him four sets to defeat both number three Dunkley and number two Hughes, and in a very close five set match he overcame Jeremy Corrin 11-8, 12-14, 13-11, 5-11, 12-10.  Sunny Daily’s number three Matt Johns came close to winning his rubber against his opposite number Leonie Dunkley.  Leading two sets to one 8-11, 14-12, 11-6, he found out just how much Dunkley has improved this year when she took the two final sets 13-11, 11-9.

 

 

PENNANT FOUR

After a brief break from the winter competition the new look Pennant four teams took to the tables for the commencement of the Summer Pennant.

Welcome to the new additions Andrew Lewis back from a short break from the game, Travis Winton playing his first senior competition as is Sonya Shalliker who filled in a couple of times in the winter pennant. Also up from the juniors getting a taste of the senior competition are Joshua Carmichael and Peter Edwards. Good luck to you all and the main thing is to have fun!!!!

 

BISHOP BUILDERS vs. MAX MILLER CARPETS

 

This was an entertaining match which could have gone either way however it was the continued good form of Cole Keegan, who won three singles, which helped his team Max Miller Carpets get over the line 6-5 against Bishop Builders.

p2Up against his skipper Ben Hosking from the winter pennant Keegan showed he has lost no form by winning two matches in straight sets , however he had a tougher match winning in four 13-11 11-7 7-11 11-6, against first gamer Joshua Carmichael. Keegan’s team mates Michael Hensgen and Shirley Whitecross assisted in the victory winning a singles each. Whitecross almost caused an upset when she took the first two games against Ben Hosking however Hosking was able to fight back to win 4-11 7-11 11-7 11-7 11-5. The second doubles was crucial to both teams and it was Michael Hensgen and Keegan who won 14-12 11-5 11-7 against Hosking and Sonya Shalliker.

For Bishop Builders skipper Hosking won two matches both in five sets as was the first doubles victory with Joshua Carmichael over Keegan and Shirley Whitecross. Young Carmichael also showed good form to win two singles; he is a leftie just like his dad Wayne and possesses a fine top spin looping forehand and is a player to watch in this grade.

 

DUNKLEY SCALES vs. SUNNY DAILY

Dunkley Scales tipped the balance their way early in this match and Sunny Daily were never able to recover with Dunkley Scales recording a strong 10-1 win. Skipper Andrew Lewis led from the front winning three singles in his return to senior table tennis. His first match was against debutant Travis Winton and was a beauty going to five sets and won by Lewis by the barest margin 11-9 8-11 7-11 11-5 12-10. In the preceding match junior player Peter Edwards in his first senior match played Helen Frania and this was a great contest with Peter winning 5-11 11-3 6-1 11-8 11-4. This was one of two wins for Peter on the night. He also teamed with skipper Lewis to win the second doubles against Claire Ljubic and Travis Winton.

p2Dunkley Scales number two Ellie Midgley started this season on fire winning three singles including a straight sets win over winter team mate Claire Ljubic and the Scales combination will be one to watch.

For Sunny Daily Claire Ljubic won one singles and they will improve as the season pans out.
