– Max Miller Carpets 6 (Andrew Cannard, Graeme O’Neill, Peter Bishop 2) d Weightmans Packaging 3 (Mark Dorman 3)

With four rounds of the Sunraysia Table Tennis summer pennant to be played Max Miller Carpets appear to have booked a finals spot with a narrow 6-5 victory over the depleted Weightmans Packaging. Late in the match Weightmans led 5-4 and were in sight of their first victory however it was not to be. The Carpeters trio Andrew Cannard, Graeme O’Neill and Peter Bishop all won two singles in an even display to thwart Weightmans.

The consistent Mark Dorman enjoyed another successful round personally for Weightmans winning three singles. To cap off a successful night he also participated successfully in both doubles victories. For the Carpeters Graeme O’Neill played a key role after a quiet by his standards round last week.p1In a vital singles result O’Neill had to draw on all his experience as he was tested by fill in Sony Sefer. These two played a tremendous five setter and while O’Neill was expected to win Sefer was not going to go away. A defeat to O’Neill would have meant his team would have struggled to win and after a lengthy contest O’Neill prevailed over the game Sefer 13-11 7-11 15-13 8-11 11-8.

Later with his team trailing 4-5 O’Neill defeated Daniel Jansen in four sets to level the match and then team mate Peter Bishop gave the Carpenters’ their third victory of the season by calmly disposing of Sefer 11-7 11-7 11-8. This was Bishop’s second win for the night and the first time he has achieved that feat this season.

 

– Pinnacle Packers 7 (Wayne Carmichael 3, Kevin Johns 2, Peter Midgley 1) d Fishers IGA 4 (Gavin Carmichael 2, Jackson Tung 1)

In the other pennant one match an even display by Pinnacle Packers against Fishers IGA resulted in a 7-4 victory. The very first match of the night was a key result and Packers Kevin Johns continued his good form of late by accounting for talented youngster Jackson Tung in four sets. The first doubles was also crucial with Johns combining with skipper Wayne Carmichael to win a tough five setter over Tung and Gavin Carmichael 12-10 11-8 4-11 8-11 11-7. This took the score to 3-1 in favour of the Packers and from here they controlled the match. Skipper Wayne Carmichael won three singles without really being tested while Johns won two and number three Peter Midgley chipped in with one victory. p1The last match of the night was another five set contest when Kevin Johns outlasted the busy Sony Sefer to win 11-7 9-11 11-6 2-11 11-7.

Top team Mallee Bearings had the bye.

 

PENNANT TWO

At long last, Spanline captain Arthur Paar returned to playing the way we know he plays.  After showing little interest in the game for the first four rounds, Paar came back with a vengeance, winning three singles, and partnering his team-mates to two doubles wins in their win over Mallee Bearings.  In the other match, ladder leaders Fishers IGA remain undefeated, with a strong 7 rubbers to 4 victory over Tankard Dental.

 

– Spanline 7 (Arthur Paar 3, Bernadette Fitzpatrick 2) d Mallee Bearings 4 (Leon Brown 2, Robert Chiswell, Nick Barlow 1)

A welcome return to form by captain Arthur Paar, and a stand-out performance by fill-in Bernadette Fitzpatrick, subbing for Matt Ljubic, were the highlights of this game. p1Paar was back to his old self, attacking everything … why he ever thought he should practice a defensive game escapes most people.  Paar is the best attacking player in this pennant, and one of the most aggressive players in the club.  He was rewarded for his change of mind with wins in all his matches.

He had to work against Leon Brown in his first match – Brown was playing consistently and worried Paar throughout.  Brown took the first set, Paar then seemed to hit his stride to take the next two, but Brown bounced back 11-6 in the fourth to level at two sets all.  Arthur was relieved to finish Leon off 11-8 in the fifth.  His other two wins were clearly more dominant – Mallee Bearings captain Robert Chiswell not really getting into his match and losing in three sets, and Paar was devastating against Nick Barlow, obliterating him 11-6, 11-0, 11-8.  The doubles though, were much more competitive.  Paar and number two Laurie Plummer needed five sets to down Chiswell and Barlow.  Sets alternated to two all, and both sides could have taken the fifth, but the Spanline pair held on long enough to take it 13-11.  In the second doubles Paar and Fitzpatrick came from a set down to best Chiswell and Brown.  Apart from the fourth set, this was a very close match.  Chiswell and Brown took the first 11-7, very nearly took the second, but didn’t losing 13-15, Spanline then took the third 11-9, and finished the game in style in the fourth 11-3.

p1Bernadette Fitzpatrick, subbing for Matt Ljubic, claimed two big (literally) scalps in Nick Barlow and. Robert Chiswell.  There was really nothing in the Fitzpatrick-Barlow match.  Barlow actually won more points, 49 to 47, but not the right ones !!  Bernadette held him off to win 11-9, 7-11, 11-9, 7-11, 11-9.  Her win over Chiswell was a beauty.  Chiswell was leading comfortably two sets to love 11-8, 11-7 before Fitzpatrick worked him out.  She raced through the next two sets winning them 11-4, 11-6, and then took the last against a confused Chiswell 11-9.

So there are the seven rubbers for Spanline.  Mallee Bearings of course won four, each member of the team besting Laurie Plummer (Chiswell winning after being two sets to love down 6-11, 9-11, 13-11, 11-3, 11-5; Barlow ripping through Laurie 11-5, 11-9, 11-8 and in the last match Laurie running of puff (literally) in the fifth to Leon Brown – Brown winning 11-9, 7-11, 12-10, 2-11, 11-1).  The fourth rubber came courtesy of Leon Brown, getting a rare victory over Fitzpatrick.  A very close and entertaining match saw Brown win 13-11, 7-11, 9-11, 12-10, 11-9.

With a score line showing Spanline winning 7 rubbers to 4, it may seem that this was a walkover.  Far from it.  This was a high standard match, there being no less than 7 five set rubbers.  Considering the rubbers score, the game score was close, Spanline 27 to Mallee Bearings 21.

 

– Fishers IGA 7 (Denise Henderson, Seval Fuat 2, Peter Fitzpatrick 1) d Tankard Dental 4 (Nicholas Dorman 3, Colin Moore 1)

Fishers IGA remain undefeated as a result of this match.  Tankard Dental were kept at arm’s length through the course of this encounter, Fishers running out winners 7 rubbers to 4 and 24 games to 16.  Fishers played a better team game – captain Seval Fuat and his deputy Denise Henderson both won two singles, number three Peter Fitzpatrick picked up one, and the team won both doubles.  Tankard’s were without their captain Ashley Morrison once again, and Nicholas Dorman filled in admirably, winning three singles.

Fuat and Henderson picked up singles wins where they could; as stated, neither of them could get the better of Dorman, but Tankard’s number two and three Colin Moore and Karina Sullivan were different prospects. p1Fuat accounted for both of them in four sets, whilst Henderson only needed three apiece.  All the rubbers on this night were relatively short, three three setters and the rest of four sets, but one stand-out three setter was the first doubles.  Fuat and Henderson fronted up to Dorman and Moore in a rubber which deserved to be a five setter.  Fuat and Henderson were only marginally better in this encounter, but they grafted away in each set to win 13-11, 16-14, 15-13.

p1Dorman led from the front in an attempt to inspire his team-mates in his three singles wins.  Fitzpatrick extended him a little, before Dorman won 15-13, 11-4, 6-11, 11-6.  He had less trouble with Fuat, winning 11-9, 13-11, 11-3 when Fuat tired.  And he had to work hard against Denise Henderson.  Henderson took the first set 11-9, before Nick started to wear her down.  He took the final three 11-9, 15-13, 11-8.

So, positions remain the same on the ladder, except that Fishers IGA are now two games clear at the top.  On the aggregate ladder, despite being in a losing team, Nicholas Dorman now sits atop the rankings, displacing Denise Henderson, 12 games to Denise’s 11.  And the other mover was Arthur Paar, going from fifteenth to twelfth, but one thinks that he may have left his run a tad late for the aggregate trophy !!

 

PENNANT THREE

In these Round 6 clashes, teams first and second on the ladder played off, as did the third and fourth teams.  In both matches, the winners met with little opposition, and took their wins 10 rubbers to 1.

 

– Sunny Daily 10 (Lachlan Kelly, Matt Johns 3, Mick Bacon 2) d  Weightmans Packaging 1 (Karly Leach 1)

Sunny Daily sat third on the ladder going into this match, equal with Dunkley Scales on 12 points, but with an inferior percentage.  Their opponents from Weightman’s Packaging, Sabrina Fitzpatrick, Karly Leach and Sam Hensgen have yet to win a game in this competition.

When these two teams first met in Round 3, Sunny Daily were at one stage five rubbers to two down, and needed to win the final four rubbers for the win.  This they did, and it was expected that this game might have produced a similar outcome.  Sadly, it was not to be.  Sunny Daily had the game well and truly in the bag at nine rubbers to nil before Weightman’s scored their first (and only) rubber.

Sunny Daily captain Lachlan Kelly and number three Matt Johns helped themselves to three rubbers, Mick Bacon two, and the side won both doubles.

Weightman’s did not give up without a fight, though.  There were three five set matches and four four setters, all of which Sunny Daily won. p2In the first of them, Mick Bacon worked hard to defeat Sam Hensgen – after leading two sets to nil 11-4, 11-9, Bacon then dropped two sets 8-11, 13-15 and had to compose himself to hold Hensgen out in the fifth 11-9.  Captain Lachlan Kelly found himself in an identical situation when he faced Karly Leach in his first singles.  He too was two sets up 11-6, 11-9 only to have Leach work her way back into the match, and level at two sets all.  Kelly held Leach out to take the last 11-9.  The third five setter was the second doubles between Kelly and Bacon against Fitzpatrick and Hensgen.  The Weightman’s pair led convincingly two sets to nil 11-7, 11-9 but Kelly and Bacon then hit their straps, and fired off wins in the next three sets 11-7, 12-10, 11-9 to take the rubber.

A very disappointing result for Weightman’s who are still looking for a win, but for Sunny Daily this result lifts them above Dunkley Scales, who were defeated in their match-up against ladder leaders Max Miller Carpets.

 

– Max Miller Carpets 10 (George Papanicolaou, Brian Hosking 3, Ryan Hensgen 2) d Dunkley Scales 1 (Jeremy Corrin 1)

Another easy win was recorded for Max Miller Carpets in this encounter with Dunkley Scales.

The Carpeters certainly have the Dunkley Scales’ trio measure.  In Round 3 when they last met, the Carpeters recorded an identical resounding win, 10 rubbers to 1.  In this game their captain George Papanicolau and number two Brian Hosking each chalked up three wins, and Ryan Hensgen two.  Only Jeremy Corrin, captain of the Dunkley Scales team prevented the white-wash.

Papanicolau could probably consider himself lucky to get away with his first win, against Garry Hughes.  “Never-Say-Die” Hughes led two sets to one 9-11, 11-7, 12-10 and was certainly a match for Papanicolau.  However, George was just a bit more consistent than Garry in the final two sets, and he snuck home 11-8, 12-10.  Later in the night Hughes lost to Brian Hosking in three sets, but indicative of Garry, the final set went to 16-14.

Dunkley Scales slipped to third on the ladder as a result of this loss, and the Carpeters remain one game clear of Sunny Daily at the head of ladder.

The aggregate ladder also takes on a much different look after this round. p2Brian Hosking and Lachlan Kelly remain first and second at the top with 14 and 13 games respectively.  The big mover this week is Matt Johns, who jumped up to third (from sixth), and now has 10 games.  Similarly Ryan Hensgen jumped from eighth to fifth with his two game haul.

 

PENNANT FOUR

Max Miller Carpets 6 (Cole Keegan 3, Shirley Whitecross, Michael Hensgen 1) d Dunkley Scales 5 (Ellie Midgley, Peter Edwards 2)

Second placed Max Miller Carpets have inflicted the first defeat on ladder leader Dunkley Scales winning 6-5 in a tight contest. Dunkley’s skipper Andrew Lewis was a late withdrawal and was replaced by first gamer Ricky Cripps. In Lewis’s absence Ellie Midgley and Peter Edwards continued their fine seasons winning two singles each and combining in the first doubles to defeat Cole Keegan and Shirley Whitecross in straight sets.p2Edwards in particular still continues to prove a surprise packet and is improving rapidly. His five set victory over Michael Hensgen was a beauty. Both players gave their all and Peter prevailed 11-8 12-10 9-11 6-11 11-9 after surviving a good come back from Michael who himself has improved greatly since he started in the winter comp.

The Carpeters were well led by Cole Keegan who won three singles while team mates  Hensgen and Shirley Whitecross chipped in with one singles each. This victory has consolidated second position for Max Miller Carpets while for top team Dunkley Scales this should only be a hiccup as their skipper will return next round and all their team have shown excellent form through the first six rounds to date.

 

– Bishop Builders 6 (Ben Hosking, Josh Carmichael 3) d Sunny Daily 5 (Travis Winton, Paul Fitzpatrick, Helen Frania 1)

At last!!! the break through has taken place and Bishop Builders have broken through for their first victory of the season, a 6-5 win over third placed Sunny Daily.

Builders skipper Ben Hosking displayed his best form of the season winning three singles and maybe his secret training camp in Queensland is now showing results. He accounted for fast improving youngster Travis Winton in four sets and then had to draw on all his experience to fend off Helen Frania who was out of the blocks early winning the first two games 11-9 11-8 to have Hosking scratching his head. Hosking was able to regroup in a vital game and took the third and fourth 11-2 11-7. The last was a beauty as both players sought victory. p2In the end Hosking took the game and the match 11-9 in a great fifth. Later with his team up 5-4 Hosking proved to be too steady for fill in Paul Fitzpatrick winning 11-4 11-9 4-11 11-6.

Builders Josh Carmichael again won three singles, the fifth round in succession that he has achieved this feat and he would have appreciated from support from skipper Hosking. For Sunny Daily all their team Paul Fitzpatrick, Helen Frania and Travis Winton won one singles each and in a good team effort won both doubles however they came up one rubber short in their quest for the points.
