Consistent Evans rewarded
WILL Evans put in a great performance in last week’s competition, winning a close four-game contest against Martin Stevens and also subbing up a grade and finishing strongly to overcome Mick Fletcher in five.
As a result, Evans was named player of the week, keeping the award in the family after younger brother Gavin took it out last week.
In Tuesday’s competition Boasts had a 2-1 victory over Drives with Claire Quinlivan finishing strongly to down Jason Curry in five and Brad Woolner was too good for Trev Whitby, who is still struggling with an injury.
Drives’ winner was Mark Jennings, who out-played sub Matt Piper.
Lobs defeated Drop Shots 2-1 with Adrian Sheldrick proving too strong for Michelle Quinlivan and Ruth Tait downing Jason Bailey in four. Drop Shots captain Jacob Harrison started slowly losing the first game easily to David Sarah, but he recovered to win in four.
Mark Del Gigante dropped the first game to Rob Hanlon, but then took control to win in four and lead Backhands to a 2-1 win over Forehands.
He was well supported by Will Evans who beat Martin Stevens 9-7, 9-5, 8-10, 9-7, but Gavin Evans’ thoughts must have still been on last week’s award instead of this week’s play and he was no match for Matt Piper.
Miss Hits is the top team in Wednesday’s competition and they scored a 3-1 win over Penalties.
Allan Macarthur won the points that mattered to clinch a cliff hanger against Ross Vitelli 10-8, 4-9, 10-9, 9-7 and Rod Tait continued his unbeaten run when he defeated Ian Alexander. Their other winner was Chris Curry who held on to win a hard-fought five-game match against Brad Naylor but Leanne Johnston lost to Carol Davidson in four.
Double Hits and Strokes won two matches each but Double Hits won on games 9-7. Rod Harrison won three close games to down sub Jamie Mooney and Nicole Rowley won the fourth game 10-9 to edge out Mooney.
Strokes winners were Kira Hoogers who continued the domination of her grade when she won in four over Sarah Quinlivan and sub Will Evans won a fluctuating battle against Mick Fletcher in five.
Lets defeated Rallies on games 10-6 after the teams finished on two matches each. Macauley Harrison remained undefeated after his strong win over Vince Bruno and David Kennedy outplayed sub Mick Fletcher.
However, Fletcher got one back for Rallies when he subbed up a grade and played great squash to win a tough five-game match against Tina Dunn and Stephen Pidgeon had to work hard to overcome sub Jonte Schmetzer in five.
Hand Outs are runaway leaders in Thursday’s competition as Tony Naimo and Mitchell Hutchinson are both undefeated.
Naimo and Hutchinson both won in four over Bryan Shepley and David Middleton respectively to give Hand Outs a 2-1 victory over Volleys. Zac Hanlon stopped the clean sweep when he defeated Miranda Tait.
Smashes scored a crushing 3-0 victory over Hot Shots with Scott Quinlivan winning in five over sub David Cross. Col Thompson dropped the first game to Cross, but came back to win in four as Cross ran out of petrol tickets in his second match of the night. Steph Hanlon completed the whitewash when she defeated Simone Bruno.
Aces had a clean sweep 3-0 win against Serves with Gus Wilton continuing his good form to down Esther Deeves.
Rob Johnston started slowly and lost the first game to Craig Curry and was down in the second, but he fought back to win in four. Tim Hutchinson also staged a great fightback as he dropped the first two games to Brian O’Leary, but recovered to win in five.
