Facing up to rockin’ Robins

Mark Mills and his Warriors teammates will be looking for a win this weekend against Shepparton Hornets.

Round one of the Goulburn Murray Lawn Tennis Association has been run and won, but it is the Shepparton Lakers’ turn to assert themselves on the region’s premier competition.

Tomorrow the Lakers will begin their campaign against a rampant Tatura side that currently sits on top of the table.

The Robins made light work of their opponents from Numurkah last week as David and Brooke Starling, Regan and Leanne Moore hope to continue their sensational form.

The quartet failed to drop a set last week across its eight rubbers, eventually dismantling the Warriors 8-64 to 0-21.

Warriors starting four Brayden Price, Mark Mills, Emily Ryan and Imogen Cameron will be hoping to bounce back at home against the Shepparton Hornets.

Price failed to win a singles game last week, while a collective Mills managed to secure eight of his side’s 21 games.

The Hornets were buzzing ahead of their season opener, however, they too fell short of making a mark as both sides look to notch their first win of the season.

Hornets went head-to-head with their rivals Shepparton Bulls (who have a bye this week) and despite winning four sets each, the former was defeated by just one game.

With the doubles kicking off proceedings on Saturday, Isobel Gribben, Bruce Ferguson and Hope Curtis-McDonald managed to get their side off to the best of starts, but Fergus Kearney was on the losing end in his singles and doubles matches.

Tomorrow’s results could send the Robins two games clear to start the season, while the Warriors and Hornets will be looking to register their first win.
