INVERLOCH won all the sets, but forfeited
the last one against Koonwarra in one of the
Section 1 semi-finals.
Megan Harris and Kellie Simpson lost a tie-
breaker, the only close set for the day.
In the other semi, Leongatha North men
James Monaghan, Neil Langstaff and Warren
Littlejohn won the three men’s sets against Phil-
James and Kerrie Rayson won the first mixed
a good effort as Phillip Island was on top of
the ladder for most of the season.
Well played to the ladies Nicole and Shelley
Walker and Camille Morris who kept the score
sheet in Phillip Island’s favour.
Outtrim were the winners against Koonwarra
in Section 2. Koonwarra won the men’s sets and
Outtrim won the ladies sets. Koonwarra went
into the mixed four games ahead but Outtrim
played their mixed well and ended up winning
by 9 games.
Baromi were winners over Berrys Creek.
The men won two tiebreakers and an 8/1. The
Berrys Creek ladies won two sets. Before the
mixed, Baromi were six games up. Baromi won
the first two mixed and had the lead they need-
ed before the last mixed. Not to be left out, the
last set was played to a tiebreaker.
In Section 3, Mardan’s Jacob Jennering with-
drew before the game with a recurring shoulder
injury, so he was unable to play. Mardan played
Abbey McColl and all played well. The Parrots
were winners of all the sets and advance to the
Baromi won well against the Leongatha
Hawks. Zac Cox and Lochie Row did well to
beat Paul and Hayden Jones. Taylor Eady and
Adam Watchorn lost a tiebreaker to Tamsin Mc-
Cormick and Kelly McCarthy. Baromi will play
against the Parrots next week.
Saturday’s semis proved how important it
is for teams to have qualified players. Injuries
do happen and to fill that player’s spot can be
quite hard. Harry Taylor-Smith had the chance
to play a semi-final after Cor Koedort had to
retire hurt after the first set.

busy start to March beginning with a visit to
Cairnlea, the headquarters of Victorian Cro-

success as it was again this year.
Commencing at around 5pm, some of the
Rotarians were keen to get in on some action
and under the guidance of club members,
some very competitive games were held dur-
ing the evening.
These were only interrupted by a lovely
meal and several drinks. Bring on 2018.
The club’s car boot sale was held on Sun-
day, March 12 and this is one of the major
fundraisers for the year.

events, it was thought that many more people
may be around to pay a visit.
A successful day, but not like previous years
and the club may revert back to Plan A for

It was decided to start earlier than usual
on each day to avoid the heat of the after-
