High-flying McEwen Reserve has become the hunted in the Shepparton District Tennis Association.
Undefeated in the opening five games of pennant this season, McEwen will host a resurgent Old Students team tomorrow.
McEwen was never troubled in winning seven sets in a 14-game win against Shepparton North last Saturday, as it opened up a two-game gap on the rest of the competition.
Tim Comer, Bailey Opie and Geoff Akers have hardly been troubled on the men’s side all season, giving McEwen a superior advantage.
The Students won’t be an easy task and have run into some form after taking a while to get going this season.
McEwen took home seven of the 10 sets played in the previous match between the sides in round one, but the Students were not completely outplayed and only lost by nine games overall.
The men’s matches shape as a key, with Jake Sprunt, Aaron Plant and Brenton Kiel all coming off big games against St Brendan’s, making the duels against Comer, Opie and Akers must-watch.
In other round six pennant games, Central Park will be looking to keep up its winning form against Shepparton North after recording its first victory of the season last week, while Karramomus is still winless and faces St Brendan’s on the rebound.
SDTA action starts tonight in the A1/A2 section, with Lemnos and McEwen Reserve Blue to clash under lights.
Tomorrow’s games have St Brendan’s playing McEwen Reserve White, McEwen Reserve Green battling it out against Shepparton North and St Andrew’s going head-to-head with Old Students.
In the A3 grade, Mooroopna Lawn faces up to Karramomus, Undera Blue tackles Central Park, Bunbartha is the home team to Kialla Park and Shepparton North hosts Undera White.
