AS the season proper draws to a close and in need of a win to ensure they remained in the top four, the Maffra Kings handsomely accounted for Heyfield in section one of Wellington tennis.
Led by Mick Luke, who was a three-set winner, the Kings won all available men’s matches on their way to a six sets to three victory. The Kings won 56 games to 53.
SITTING handsomely atop of the ladder and assured of a finals birth, the Maffra Aces were too strong for Sale X Factor with a dominant seven sets to two and 66 games to 47 victory.
Jamie Kemp, Jake Weir and Ben McAnulty led the home team to a comfortable victory, each winning their three matches.
IN the final match of the round, second-placed Seaspray travelled to take on the bottom-placed Maffra Queens.
While Maffra took the first two women’s doubles rubbers, Seaspray asserted its dominance on the men’s side of the contest, sweeping all three matches.
In the mixed doubles, the Seaspray pairings once again proved to be too strong as it cruised to a seven sets to two, 61 games to 40, victory and secured a top two finish.
SALE Big Brother had the bye.
IN the last round before the finals, Heyfield and Sale Big Brother need to win on Saturday at Maffra against the Queens and Kings respectively to have any hope of making the semi-finals.
A win for the Kings would secure their place in the finals.
In the remaining match, Seaspray will host the Maffra Aces. The clash between the top two sides will be a preview of the second semi-final in two week’s time.
Sale X Factor will have the bye.
