THE main upset in Allambee Mirboo and Dis-
trict Tennis last Saturday featured the win by
Koonwarra over the top team Berrys Creek in
But Koonwarra wasn’t able to field a team
against Phillip Island in Section 1 and had to
forfeit – win some, lose some!
Forfeits are not good but sometimes there are
no options. Inverloch were big winners over Le-
ongatha North in the other Section 1 match.
In Section 2, Outtrim won by 9 games against
Baromi. The two teams are close on the ladder.
Gold won 8/1 against Leongatha Green. The
Dekker mother/daughter pair won the only set
for the day. Berry’s Creek and Koonwarra, the
other two teams in the four, had a close match.
Koony came out on top by 3 games with the sets
all being evenly contested. A windy day out at
Hallston this round. Four tiebreakers this game
with Hallston winning all of them.
Leongatha Hawks won by 9 games against
the Eagles. Baromi won 6/1 against the Parrots.
The Parrots are the top team but Baromi gained
points on them this round with experienced
players in their team.
Next week: The mixed tournament is on Sun-
day at the Leongatha courts. Bye teams, this is
your chance for an extra game. For those in Sec-
tion 3, it is a good chance for a good social day
against fellow competitors and even team-mates.
