|The second last round of the home and away season saw some one-sided results in the Dimboola District Tennis Association.
With just one round remaining before finals, fourth place is up for grabs with Arkona, Brim and Rainbow set to fight out for the last position.
Brim will host Rainbow in the final round, while Arkona, who holds fourth place by two points, will host Jeparit.
On Saturday, Warrack took on Arkona in their last home game and got off to a strong start by only dropping one set in the mixed section.
The men’s sections continued in the same kind of fashion with Warrack’s men only dropping two of the six sets. Sean McKenzie and Chris Kellett were standouts, winning all their sets for the day.
Warrack women dominated with four convincing wins to take away the day.
Top team Antwerp continued their winning form with a strong win over hosting team Brim.
Antwerp claimed all sets in the mixed apart from one, with Jo Credlin and Josiah Keam being the only victors for Brim. Lachie Stewart and Hugh Keam managed to get up in a tight tussle against Tim Jorgenson and Daniel Polack to start off the men’s section however, Antwerp failed to lose a set for the remainder of the day in both the men and women.
Jeparit hosted Dimboola in what was the closest match for the round.
After a tightly contested mixed section scores were level at three sets apiece. Jeparit narrowly squeezed in to win the section by two games.
The Men’s section was also a close affair with both teams again winning three sets each. Jeparit again managed to take the win by just four games.
The Jeparit women set the two sides apart with a clean sweep in all six women’s sets.
Reigning premiers Hopetoun proved that they are still a force to be reckoned with after comfortably defeating home side Rainbow.
Hopetoun came away with victory in five out of the six mixed sets to win the section convincingly. Rainbow’s women fought back and managed to reverse the results of the mixed and win five out of the six women’s sets.
However, Hopetoun’s men proved to be too strong with Jacob Holm, Taylor Donnan, Lou White and Alex Kavoor all winning their three sets for the day.
