Haven Green and Quantong lead section one junior tennis



HAVEN Black made it a clean sweep of victories against rivals Haven Gold in section one Central Wimmera Tennis Association junior action on Saturday.

Rueben Lardner and Harry Combe proved far too strong for Romi Miller and Lauren Bond in the first tie of the match, winning 6-0, and it only got worse from there for the Gold team as Black dominated all rubbers to take the fixture 8-48 to 0-14.

The match between the two remaining Haven teams, Haven Orange and Haven Green, was similarly lopsided.

Hettie French and Ebony Dunn combined to get Haven Orange to a bright start, winning their rubber against Bailey Loft and Michael Lloyd 6-5.

But from there, it was all Haven Green, as the team won the remaining seven rubbers to take the tie 7-47 to 1-25.

Natimuk and Quantong battled out a thriller at Natimuk.

Both teams won four sets each, with Quantong taking the tie on games won.

The early running was with Natimuk as the side claimed both opening fixtures to go 2-0 up, but three straight sets to Quantong altered the balance of the tie.

Despite winning two of the remaining three fixtures Natimuk was unable to overcome the deficit as Quantong took the match 4-42 to 4-34.

In the final section one fixture, Horsham Lawn clean-swept Central Park for its first win of the season.

The final score was Horsham Lawn 8-48 to Central Park 0-15.

Haven Green and Quantong are the only two unbeaten teams after two rounds of the competition, with Haven Black and Horsham Lawn making up the top four. 

Haven Gold and Central Park both remain winless.
