Tallygaroopna’s unbeaten record remains intact after steamrolling McEwen Reserve Green in round eight of the Shepparton District Tennis Association on Saturday.

The Pennant/A1 table-toppers destroyed Green 8-81 to 1-18 with Tally trio Fergus Kearney, Paul Fraser and Cal Curtis sweeeping the men’s doubles.

The visitors’ domination continued in the women’s, before Ella and Lara Wayman pulled a set back downing Lauren Good and Kerry Ford 6-3.

It was all Tally in the mixed doubles with a particularly strong showing from Paula Montgomery and Fraser ensuring the visitors ran out convincing victors.

McEwen Reserve Gold solidified its status as the best of the rest with a 8-58 to 2-33 win against third-placed Old Students at home.

The opening clash saw Students main man Aaron Plant edge past Tim Comer 6-5, before Tom Jeffery fired back for Gold defeating Brenton Kiel 6-4.

The duos then exchanged blows in the doubles with Gold gaining the ascendancy after securing back-to-back strong wins.

The women’s doubles proved hard fought affairs with Gold’s Nicci Jeffery the only player from either side to get through unbeaten.

Gold put the game to bed in the mixed doubles as the Students struggled to see out the afternoon competitively.

Shepparton North accounted for Central Park 6-41 to 3-26 as the former closes on the top four after eight rounds.

Northerners Clark Pettigrew, Rod Densworth and Evan Cooknell dropped just three games in three sets of men’s doubles, but the Central Park women struck back securing two sets.

The coffin nails were hammered in the mixed doubles with Wendy Sidebottom and Cooknell the most menacing.

In A2/A3 action, Murchison snuck past Shepparton North in a thriller 6-45 to 3-41 with Julie Brook and Andrew Richardson the standouts for the home side.

McEwen Reserve sides White and Blues could only be separated by the smallest of margins with the Blues winning on sets 5-39 to 4-39. St Brendan’s downed Central Park 6-46 to 3-36, St Andrew’s beat Old Students/McEwen Reserve 4-39 to 5-35 and Karramomus defeated Lemnos 6-48 to 3-35.
