Tallygaroopna did not even need to step foot on court to maintain its lead in the Shepparton District Tennis Association Pennant/A1 competition.
The Redlegs benefited from a forfeit by scheduled opponent Central Park.
It was one of four forfeits across the divisions, with the A2/A3 combined competition impacted by three of the five matches resulting in walkovers.
Back to the top flight and the pick of the matches came between McEwen Reserve Gold and Shepparton North.
Not even 10 sets could separate the combatants at full-time, with the points shared courtesy of a 5-43 scoreline.
North had the early advantage, winning three of the four men’s matches through Clark Pettigrew and Evan Cooknell.
But Gold’s women’s contingent of Heather Thomson, Kathleen Davies and Jenny Darcy ensured the tie was delicately poised going into the mixed doubles as North clung to a five-game lead.
Tim Comer and Darcy levelled the sets for Gold with a 6-4 defeat of Pettigrew and Helen Jackson, but North edged its way back in front after Cooknell and Georgie Moore accounted for Thomson and Cam Gibbs 6-3.
Gold duo Geoff Akers and Davies locked the contest up by downing Mark Jackson and Kailee Dunsworth 6-0.
St Brendan’s recorded a 5-42 to 4-34 defeat of Old Students.
The contest was made up of all doubles matches with the foundation of the Saints’ success coming in the women’s doubles as Jacinta Harrington, Lisa Trebley and Marie Gleeson starred.
Kialla Park proved too strong for McEwen Reserve Green by 10 games.
The Parkers won six of the nine sets contested as Robbie Mifka went through the tie undefeated and Jaslyn Ferguson also displayed some outstanding touch.
In the two A2/A3 matches played Lemnos accounted for McEwen Reserve Blue by 11 games and St Brendan’s edged out Old Students/McEwen 5-39 to 4-37.
The winners in A4 were Karramomus, Bunbartha and Central Park, who proved far too slick for Undera.
