Round seven of the Sunraysia Table Tennis summer pennant featured the biggest upset of the season to date when Max Miller Carpets inflicted the first defeat on ladder leaders Mallee Bearings. The 7-4 victory was a big turn around from their previous encounter in round one when Mallee Bearings smashed the Carpeters 9-2.

– Max Miller Carpets 7 (Andrew Cannard, Graeme O’Neill, Peter Bishop 2) d Mallee Bearings 4 (Mark Ljubic)

In an excellent performance Andrew Cannard, Graeme O’Neill and Peter Bishop all won two singles in their impressive victory. After the first block of three singles the Carpeters led 2-1. Graeme O’Neill defeated the improving Daniel Jansen in four sets and then later Andrew Cannard accounted for the in form Darren “Hurricane” Robinson in a lengthy five setter 6-11 14-12 11-6 7-11 11-6. Then in the first doubles Cannard and O’Neill, after dropping the first game against Mark Ljubic and Darren Robinson, played consistent table tennis to win in four sets. An upset was possibly in the making as the Carpeters now took a 3-1 lead. The next two matches went as expected with the Carpeters now leading 4-2 with Darren Robinson and Peter Bishop taking to the table. Robinson was fancied to take this however p1Peter Bishop had other ideas and despite dropping the first game Bishop play his usual steady game to frustrate Robinson who looks for the ball to come on quickly. In an outstanding effort Bishop took the next three games to 11-3 11-6 11-7 to give his side a real edge. Was the Hurricane beginning to peter out??

Max Miller Carpets now took a 5-2 lead and were dominating. Mallee Bearings skipper Mark Ljubic tried his best to keep his side in the race. In the second doubles he partnered Daniel Jansen to defeat Bishop and Andrew Cannard in an entertaining five setter and when Ljubic won a four set struggle against Cannard the score line was now 5-4 in favour of Max Miller Carpets. All of a sudden the top team had a chance with Hurricane Robinson to play Graeme O’Neill. p1O’Neill then gained revenge for an earlier season loss by defeating Robinson in four sets to give his team a valuable four points. Peter Bishop then defeated Daniel Jansen in a fantastic five set struggle 11-13 11-5 11-3 7-11 14-12 to give Max Miller Carpets a sound win. Three teams now sit at the head of the ladder with four wins in what now appears to be an even season.

For Mallee Bearings Mark Ljubic continued his fine season by winning three singles however on this occasion he did not enjoy the support he has received up until this round.

– Fishers IGA 8 (Gavin Carmichael 3, Sony Sefer 2, Jackson Tung 1) dWeightmans Packaging 3 (Joel Dorman 2, Kevin Johns 1)

Fishers IGA recorded their second victory of the season when they accounted for Weightmans Packaging 8-3. The score line indicates a one sided match however in reality five of the matches went to five sets and Weightmans had their chances to grab a couple of more matches. p1For Fishers Sony Sefer showed his most impressive form of the season winning two singles and partnering skipper Gavin Carmichael in the second doubles to defeat Joel Dorman and Jackson Murphy in four sets. Both of Sefer’s singles victories came in five sets over Jackson Murphy and fill in Kevin Johns respectively. The 4-11 5-11 14-12 11-7 11-7 win against Johns was the most impressive given Johns consistent form of late and the fact that Sefer had to come back from two games to love down.

p1Fishers skipper Gavin Carmichael statistically had his best night of the season winning three singles, although he had to weather the storm against a hard hitting Joel Dorman to win in five sets. With three rounds to play Fishers have now opened up a two match break on Weightmans, with both teams still to have a bye.

 

This round Pinnacle Packers had the bye

 

PENNANT TWO

Spanline, led by the resurgent Arthur Paar inflicted the first defeat of the season on ladder leaders Fishers IGA in a very close match.  And third placed Pinnacle Packers defeated Mallee Bearings, who were a game ahead of them on the ladder in second.  There are now three teams tied on 12 points, vying for second spot.

 

– Spanline 6 (Arthur Paar 3, Matt Ljubic 2, Laurie Plummer 1) d Fishers IGA 5 (Denise Henderson 2, Seval Fuat 1)

Spanline recorded their third win of the season in this Round 7 clash, and in so doing showed that ladder leaders Fishers IGA are beatable.  Their first win came during Arthur Paar’s hiatus in Round 3 against Tankard Dental.  p1Now, with Paar “back”, anything seems possible for this combination, and they are looking very much like the team to beat in this competition.

Paar led the way, winning three singles, Matt Ljubic took two, and Laurie Plummer one.  Paar easily defeated Fishers number three Peter Fitzpatrick in three sets, but had to really work against opposing captain Seval Fuat and number two Denise Henderson.  Fuat sensed that he was a chance against Paar when he took the first set 11-6, but Paar dug in and took the next two important sets 16-14, 13-11 to unsettle Fuat.  Fuat, however, was not to be denied and levelled at two sets all, but Paar powered away in the fifth to close the match 11-5.  His match with Henderson came when the scores were locked at 5 rubbers all.  Henderson, not yet back to full match fitness, extended Paar, but eventually succumbed in five.

p1Matt Ljubic continued his now consistent season, and picked up two wins – against Fitzpatrick in three and the second against Fuat in the first round of singles.  Ljubic had the better of Fuat from the start, taking the first set 11-9, only for Fuat to level when he took the second.  But that is far as Fuat got, Ljubic was too good in the third and fourth, taking them 12-10, 11-8.

Henderson and Fuat took two and one singles wins respectively for the ladder leaders, and the team kept themselves in the contest by taking both doubles.  Fuat and Henderson took the first doubles against their opposite numbers Paar and Plummer 13-11, 9-11, 11-6, 11-8 to level the scores at that stage 2 all.  And later Fuat and Fitzpatrick came back after losing the first set 10-12 against Paar and Ljubic, to outplay their opponents in the final three sets 11-5, 11-9, 11-7 to again level the scores, this time at 4 all.

A very close match, 6 rubbers to 5 and 20 games apiece.

 

– Pinnacle Packers 6 ( Ross Humphreys, Bernadette Fitzpatrick 2, Arnold Jago 1) d Mallee Bearings 5 ( Robert Chiswell 3, Leon Brown 2)

Pinnacle Packers also won their third match of the season when they defeated Mallee Bearings in this Round 7 clash.  Captain Ross Humphreys and number three Bernadette Fitzpatrick both won two singles, and Arnold Jago picked up one.  Doubles wins were shared between the two protagonists to give the Packers a 6 rubbers to 5 and 23 games to 19 win.

p1Mallee Bearings captain Robert Chiswell was the player to beat; he took all his singles – starting with a tough first up encounter with Arnold Jago.  Jago looked to have the match in his keeping after levelling at 2 sets all, but Chiswell was too strong in the fifth, taking it 11-6.  He had little trouble with Ross Humphreys, winning 11-5, 11-8, 11-9, and his third win, in four sets, over Bernadette Fitzpatrick when the game was already lost, 9-11, 13-11, 11-5, 11-6 gave the score a respectable look at 6-5 down.

Only Leon Brown could assist in contributing to the Mallee Bearings score, with one singles win.  He scored a good win over Arnold Jago in five sets in a very even contest 8-11, 11-5, 10-12, 12-10, 11-7.

For the victors though, it was really Humphreys and Fitzpatrick who carried the side, they both won two singles and took the second doubles against Chiswell and Brown.  After losing the first set 9-11, they then outplayed their opponents 11-8, 11-6, 11-9.

Fitzpatrick had played this team the week before, when she filled in for Matt Ljubic.  On that occasion she had downed Chiswell and Barlow; this time after accounting for Brown 11-9, 11-6,13-15, 11-5 and Barlow again, she hoped the score a three, but Chiswell, having learnt from their previous meeting denied her.  A good showing nonetheless.

p1The match was Ross Humphreys third game of the season, and so his two games were well played – he too beating Barlow in three, and needing an extra set to down Brown.

The teams ladder remains the same after this round, except that there are now three teams on 12 points.  The aggregate ladder has changed a little, Robert Chiswell the biggest mover this week, up from fourth to second.  Also Denise Henderson regained top spot, with Nicholas Dorman not playing.  The top four on the aggregate are Henderson and Chiswell on 13 and Dorman and Fuat on 12.  Next on 9 games are Leon Brown and Bernadette Fitzpatrick.

 

PENNANT THREE

Top team Max Miller Carpets took on bottom team Weightman’s Packaging and second placed Sunny Daily did battle with Dunkley Scales, who held third position, in this Round 7 clash.  And the upset of the round was the toppling of the ladder leaders by Weightman’s – followed by much celebrating by Weightman’s for their first win of the season.

 

– Sunny Daily 6 (Lachlan Kelly, Matt Johns 2) d Dunkley Scales 5 (Jeremy Corrin, Leonie Dunkley 2, Garry Hughes 1) 

Dunkley Scales started this season with a bang – defeating Sunny Daily 8 rubbers to 3.  However, they have been unable to repeat that dose since.  Their second meeting saw the tables turned, when Sunny Daily down the Scalers 6 rubbers to 5 and once again in this round, the Dailies meted out more of the same medicine.

Wins were spread fairly evenly amongst the players in this contest – four players scored two singles wins, one scored one and one failed to score.  The scoreline was nip and tuck all night, and the result came in the final rubber.

Sunny Daily captain Lachlan Kelly and his number three Matt Johns both scored two singles wins, and the team needed victories in both doubles to get this win.  Kelly picked up wins against his opposite number, captain Jeremy Corrin in three sets, and the Scalers number two Garry Hughes in four, but was outplayed by his opposition’s number three Leonie Dunkley.  Despite leading two sets to one, Kelly could not get the better of Dunkley and had to concede defeat to her five sets.  p2Dunkley won 11-6, 7-11, 3-11, 11-6, 11-8.  Johns was in good form, downing Garry Hughes in four sets before losing to Jeremy Corrin in a tough second round rubber.  Corrin played well, and held his nerve to hold Johns out in three sets 12-10, 13-11, 11-8.  Johns however, was not finished and produced a win when his team needed it – with the scores locked at 5-5, Johns played Leonie Dunkley in the decider and took it convincingly 11-7, 15-13, 11-4.  As a measure of Johns’ improvement this season, compare that result with their score line in Round 1.  On that occasion Dunkley defeated him in five sets.

Both doubles matches went to the winners, Kelly and Johns easily defeating Corrin and Hughes in three sets, and in the second doubles Kelly and Bacon  needed only one set more to down Corrin and Dunkley.

For Dunkley Scales, both Jeremy Corrin and Leonie Dunkley took two wins, and Garry Hughes one.  To that point, this was a good team effort, but their inability to combine in either doubles was telling, because that is all the rubbers they earnt this night.  Captain Jeremy Corrin had wins against his opposition’s numbers two and three (against Mick Bacon he won 11-7, 8-11, 11-6, 3-11, 11-5; he had less trouble with Matt Johns, winning that rubber in three 12-10, 13-11, 11-8), whilst Dunkley accounted for opposing captain Lachlan Kelly and Mick Bacon, but lost to Matt Johns in the deciding rubber. p2Garry Hughes’ one win came at a crucial time, with his team down 5-4 he was urged on by his team mates, and levelled at 5 rubbers all in a tense five setter against Mick Bacon.  Bacon led this match two sets to one, 4-11, 11-5, 11-9 before Hughes took control and the rubber.

This win sees Sunny Daily equal Max Miller Carpets on 20 points at the head of the table, the two sides only separated by percentage.  Sunny Daily remain in second spot on percentage, but are now two games clear of Dunkley Scales who remain on 12 points.

 

– Weightmans Packaging 6 (Karly Leach 2, Sabrina Fitzpatrick, Sam Hensgen 1) d Max Miller Carpets 5 (George Papanicolaou 3, Brian Hosking 2)

This match would surely be the upset of the season so far.  Weightman’s Packaging, yet to win a match, against the team boasting the aggregate leader Brian Hosking and recent recruit and big hitter George Papanicolaou, made it home in a close and tense encounter.

Papanicolaou and Hosking were both in good form – winning 3 and 2 rubbers respectively, but the Weightman’s Packaging side played a better team game.  Karly Leach top scored with two wins, whilst both Sabrina Fitzpatrick and Sam Hensgen scored one.  The telling score though was in the doubles, Weightman’s winning both.

It was the doubles matches which won this match.  The first match-up saw the numbers one and two from each team face off.  Fitzpatrick and Leach took the win against Papanicolaou and Hosking in a rubber which saw sets go decisively to one end of the table or the other.  Final score here was 3-11, 11-2, 11-6, 6-11, 11-9.  The second doubles was much closer.  Fitzpatrick and Sam Hensgen needed a win in this rubber to level the match at 4 all.  Papanicolaou paired with Sam’s older brother Ryan and led 8-11, 11-9, 12-10, before the Weightman’s pair steadied to take the final two sets 11-8, 11-9.

The Weightman’s trio picked up three singles wins against Ryan Hensgen, and one against Brian Hosking.  The win against Hosking came in the second last rubber, a loss here would have seen the match lost, and a win would make the scores level – p2Karly Leach stamped her authority with this win 12-10, 11-13, 11-9, 11-3.

A close match, 6 rubbers to 5 and 25 games to 24.  The win to Weightman’s did not change the ladder at all, but it certainly shook the confidence of the Carpeters trio.  On the aggregate ladder, everything remained the same after this week of competition with the exception that Papanicolaou rocketed up the standings from tenth position to fifth.  Considering this is only George’s fourth match of the season, it is certainly a case of what-could-have-been had he played the full season.

 

 

PENNANT FOUR

 

– Dunkley Scales 8 (Andrew Lewis 3, Ellie Midgley, Peter Edwards 2) d Sunny Daily 3 (Claire Ljubic 2)

With skipper Andrew Lewis back in the line up top team Dunkley Scales bounced back this round after suffering their first defeat last week. Their 8-3 victory over Sunny Daily may appear to look a one sided score line however of the eleven rubbers six of the matches went to five sets in what was an entertaining contest.

p2Lewis won three singles for the victors while team mates Ellie Midgley and Peter Edwards continued their consistent seasons winning two singles each. The first five setter featured Lewis and opposing skipper Claire Ljubic. Ljubic grabbed the first two games before Lewis narrowly took the third and then he grabbed the ascendancy in a close contest to go on and win a great match 8-11 10-12 11-9 11-7 11-8.

The very next match saw Peter Edwards and Travis Winton play another five set cliff hanger with Winton taking the first two games only to have Edwards do what his skipper had done earlier and come back and win in five 10-12 9-11 12-10 11-8 11-8. Amazingly all Edwards’s singles and his one doubles all went to five sets again indicating that it was a closer result than it may have appeared.

p2Opposing skipper Claire Ljubic also enjoyed a busy night as all her singles went to five sets as well, including a tremendous stoush with Ellie Midgley. Ljubic trailed 8-10 in the fifth however she did not give up and eventually took this game 14-12 coming back from a two games to love deficit. Ljubic won two singles and in a further five setter she combined with Helen Frania to defeat Andrew Lewis and Peter Edwards 6-11 11-6 11-7 9-11 11-8.

 

– Max Miller Carpets 6 (Cole Keegan 2, Shirley Whitecross, Michael Hensgen 1) d Bishop Builders 5 (Josh Carmichael 3, Ben Hosking 2)

Despite Josh Carmichael winning three singles again and receiving good back up from skipper Ben Hosking who won two it was not quite enough for Bishop Builders as they went down 5-6 to opponents Max Miller Carpets who currently sit second on the ladder. Of the seven rounds the Builders have played in five 6-5 results indicating they are not far off the mark however their inability to win a doubles was costly.

p2For the victors Cole Keegan won two singles while Michael Hensgen and fill in Steve Winton won one each. The highlight match in this contest was the five setter between Ben Hosking and the fast improving Michael Hensgen. Hensgen took the first two games before Hosking drew on some of the tips he gained on his recent secret training camp in sunny Queensland to go on and win 4-11 13-15 11-9 12-10 11-6…….a great match!!!!
