Orford and district table tennis
TARRONE finally had a winning night at Orford and District Table Tennis when they defeated Orford.
Glengleeson rose to fifth place with its win and is knocking on the door of fourth, while Port Fairy will face Warrnambool Warriors.
Week 13 predictions will see Warrnambool Vikings continue to cut a path through its opposition when it meets Tarrone, while Glengleeson should find themselves on the winning side of the ledger against Orford.
Warrnambool Warriors will have the upper hand in the scoreline against Port Fairy and the Myndarra youngsters probably won’t have the fire power to combat the Attunga veterans.
Results from week 12 were as follows: Port Fairy lost to Warrnambool Vikings 1.4-10.31 Ray Young was Port Fairy’s winner when he defeated Dom 11-3, 3-11, 15-13 and 11-4, while Rehan and Tess both won their three rubbers for Warrnambool Vikings.

This match hinged on the doubles. Glengleeson won the second doubles match in a close five-game rubber 8-11, 11-12, 11-9, 11-6 and 12-10 indicative of the high game points throughout the match.
Gareth Spring and Bill Lyons (Glengleeson) both won two rubbers while Aaron Rowbottom was the three-rubber winner. Ally Rowbottom lost a high scoring rubber to Bill 7-11, 14-12, 8-11 and 10-12 while she won a similar rubber against Peter Drendel 11-9, 8-11, 11-9 and 11-3.
