Things are tightening up in the race to finals in all sections, but no more so than in Section 6 Girls.

Meredith, in its first season, continued its unbeaten run this week with a convincing 6-0 win over third placed Teesdale.

While the score looked one sided, Teesdale had its chances with Sophie Nurnaitis just going down to Phoebe Brown in a tie-break in the first singles, and Arijana Stubbs missing out to Maggie Brown, also in a tie-break in the fourth.

Teesdale also had a chance in the second doubles but Meredith’s Savannah Thompson and Maggie Brown managed to win 6-4 over Lacey Vanderkley and Stubbs. Meredith now finds itself guaranteed minor premiers, however, the rest of the finals positions are still up for grabs.

Drysdale, sitting fourth, helped its cause beating second placed Barwon Heads away from home.

Mikayla Wiffen, Ava Gleeson, Tilly Davies and Georgina Palmateer all won their singles guaranteeing the win before Mizuki Yamakawa Armstrong and Georgie Price put the Heads on the board with a 6-3 win in the first doubles, their only set for the day.

This leaves both teams in the same position, but Drysdale is now only seven points from second with three matches to play.

The final match of the day saw Geelong Lawn beat Highton four sets to two. The teams were level on points going into the match with Lawn ahead on percentage.

The match was close all the way through with Eva Katzer winning the first singles 6-1 for Lawn, but Tayla Newton countering for Highton coming through in a tie-break.

Bella Smith followed up with a 6-4 for Highton in the third, but Lawn’s Charlotte White prevailed 6-4 in the fourth. The difference in the end was the doubles with Lawn winning both keeping its finals hopes alive, only three points away from fourth.

With only 10 points separating second and fifth all teams will need to play well over the next three weeks and will be looking to finish second or third to avoid Meredith in the elimination final and to give them the best chance of an upset come grand final day.
