Blue ousts stablemates White from finals

February 27, 2018

The points have been accumulated and the schedule set for another enticing finals series in the Shepparton Junior Tennis Association.

A-grade will involve a hotly fought weekend between Kialla Park, Shepparton Lawn Purple, Shepparton Lawn Pink and Mooroopna Cats Blue.

Blue’s entrance into the finals came at the expense of clubmates Mooroopna Cats White as the pair went head-to-head in the final match of the season.

Blue showed the determination of a side wanting to continue its season, taking out the match 5-41 to 3-27.

Molly Tancred was sensational across the day, defeating Angela Rigoni in the girls singles before teaming up with Olivia Lear for another impressive set win in the doubles.

Cooper Marshall also held up his end of the bargain, getting on top of strong opposition in Harry Crilly as Blue prepares to face top side Kialla Park in the final.

The Parkers finished off the regular season with a dominant defeat of Shepparton Lawn Red, 7-42 to 1-18.

Mitch Roche and Josh Dillon paired up in the boys doubles to create a formidable partnership, while Sophie Smith and Ellie Nethersole did the same in the girls.

Amelia Cavallaro stood tallest for Shepparton Lawn Red, winning her side’s only set for the day by overcoming Ellie Nethersole.

In the second semi of A-grade, Shepparton Lawn Purple and Pink will face off following a week without taking to Shepparton’s courts.

St Brendan’s topped the table in B1 grade and as a result will meet Shepparton Lawn Yellow in the finals, with Kialla Park and McEwen Reserve to also clash on Saturday.

The region’s talented juniors have an action-packed weekend ahead, with semi-finals to be played on Saturday before successful clubs vie for the title at McEwen Reserve on Sunday.

With no finals played in 10-and-under action, Katandra West has already claimed the premiership with Shepparton Lawn taking second place.
