Stirling North Crows now in second spot

Stirling North Crows had an excellent win against South Augusta Bulldogs 11 rubbers to four rubbers to move into second spot on the ladder with three rounds to go before the finals in the table tennis round last week.

Crows were without captain Wes Yates and brought in veteran Grant Keane.

They certainly didn't lose anything with Grant picking up three wins from three games and proved he has lost none of his skill after missing several games this season due to work.

Other Crows players to perform included Daniel Lutz, only in his second season with two wins and brother and sister combination Karli and Otto Basson with one win each.

For the losers, Tim Clarke was the only one to hold his head high with two wins and he would be disappointed with his team mates who have had three losses in a row now and falling out of the finals race.

Best matches for the night included Grant Keane defeating Mark Shirley 11/7 in the fifth set and Daniel Lutz also lining up to defeat Mark 12/10 in the fifth and final set.

Karli Basson had a good win against her school teacher Murray Scholz defeating him 11/9 in the fifth set.

Nothing more homework can't cure in the future.

In the other Division 1 match, top team Augusta Park Eagles eight rubbers defeated West Augusta Hawks eight rubbers to four rubbers in another convincing win.

Eagles without the very reliable Phil Morphett were still able to defeat the experienced outfit lead by Karl Chamberlai.

They must be confident that they can go all the way this year.

Eagles without the very reliable Phil Morphett were still able to defeat the experienced outfit lead by Karl Chamberlain.

Best players for the Eagles were Jannie Basson with two wins, Karl having a good win over him in the battle of the top seeds and others to contribute include Wilmington's David Christie and Miriam Boehringer two wins to close off a consistent display.

Hawks were not good with Karl and Andy Couzner both having two wins each.

There were not many close games with most over within three to four sets in their capitulation.

In Division 2, numbers were down but there was an opportunity for Jock and Dougal McTaggart to have good wins and take out the awards for this week.

They are improving each week.
