Stosurs push on for win

ERROL Dunemann watched from the sidelines as a tennis team unravelled before his eyes.

The fixtures co-ordinator said Moliks went down in flames against the Stosurs on Tuesday night.

"Michael Heidrich's Stosurs should buy a casket ticket after beating Greg Horne's Moliks 32 games to 31 games," he said.

"Moliks were so unlucky.

"After leading 9 to 7 after the first time slot, 18 to 14 half way and 28 to 20 before the last time slot, nerves seemed to get to them (Moliks).

"They ran out of petrol to lose 6-1 and 6-2 in the last time slot to finish one game down."

In the night's other matches, Royce Clarke's Lavers found their form to win every time slot against Zac Hosking's Coopers.

The Lavers have battled hard, but come up short in recent weeks, but last season's champions returned to the winner's table with a 35 games to 26 win.

Lavers player Ross Ezzy and Coopers player Kristen Welch both top scored with 21 games.

Rod Evans' Frasers did their best to defeat the unbeaten Hewitts, but the match ended in a draw.

Frasers had a 9-7 lead after the first time, but ended up finishing on 31 games all.

In the final fixture, Graham Usher's Rafters put on a convincing win over Michael Barry's Woodies, winning 36 games to 28.

Royce Clark top scored with 24 to guide the Emriks to a win of 4 sets 39 game to 4 sets 33 games. Paul Veivers' Slazengers dominated Scott Fitzpatrick's Fischers winning 6 sets 45 games to 2 sets 26 games. Andy Lerch's Yonexes overpowered Wayne Jensen's Volleys.
