Painful Foot has trampled Dragons in the Echuca TableTennis competition.September 1, 2014 3:23am
Painful Foot and Dragons battled out the closest match of the round last week in the Echuca Table Tennis competition.
It was the former who prevailed in the 6-5 result, which despite the close final outcome, only saw three sets against the winners throughout the night.
Ray Kissell won four of his five matches, while Sam Lyon won all his singles games for Painful Foot.
Cameron Oldham led The Force to a comfortable 7-4 win against Ned’s Gang, while the only two five-set matches for the night were played in the doubles with the results split.
Opium also enjoyed a solid 7-4 win against Hit the Net with Darcy Regan going through undefeated.
Slamrrs’ Steve Robinson enjoyed a good night as he led his team to a 6-4 win against Give Me Half, with both doubles matches decided by narrow margins in their fifth sets alongside teammates Richard Ham and Astrid Lenne.
The final match saw Raincheck win 7-4 against Sauces Scorchers to stand alone at the top of the ladder, with the winners making the most of their substitute number one players.
The three chasing teams Opium, Sauces Scorchers and The Force are level on points and rubbers won, with set difference only separating them.
Opium defeated Dragons 6-5, with Regan and Josh Hanson combining to win the match-deciding a five-set thriller against Kissell and Meg Berryman, while Raincheck and Give Me Half had the same outcome.
The four five-set matches in the clash were split among the two teams, with the result ultimately decided between the two number ones, Darren Short and Daniel Mackrell.
Short won in four sets, with three of the sets seeing both players into double figures.
All three remaining matches saw 7-4 scorelines, with the undefeated Ash Button leading Painful Foot to the win against Slamrrs — but not before enjoying a high-quality five-set stoush against Steve Robinson.
Hit the Net prevailed 7-4 against Ned’s Gang, with Jason Seabrook and Jim Greenwood each winning four of their five games.
The final match saw Kyle Bartlett go undefeated through the night as Sauces Scorchers beat The Force, with Hayden Favaloro also enjoying a good night.
