Kiwis Make It 4 in a Row in Trans-Tasman Junior Test Series

The Executive Travel Tans-Tasman Junior Test Series Team makes it 4 titles in a row after claiming the Trans-Tasman Junior Test Series for 2018 at the PCYC Centre in Brisbane.

TTS2018

 

Going in to the final day New Zealand had a slight lead of 10 matches to 8 over Australia. With a total of 36 matches being played over the two days of the test series, that meant the Kiwi’s needed 9 wins to guarantee victory and hold onto the title for another year.

 

The Kiwis again started well winning all four under 13’s matches, this time without dropping a game.

 

For the second day in a row Katie Davies pulled off an upset win to claw one back for the Aussies, this time beating under 15’s OJC champion Natalie Sayes in 4 games. Ella Burge went down 3-0 to Kiwi Jena Gregory in the other girl’s match. Australia’s Gregory Chan kept his unbeaten run at Redcliffe going with a straight games victory while Oscar Curtis lost in 4 games.

 

The Under 17 Girls saw the Australians proving to be too strong for the Kiwis today with Winona-Jo Joyce losing out in 3 to Alex Haydon whilst Georgia Robcke lost out 1-3 to Mackenzie Sleep. This saw the match score close slightly to 6-4 to New Zealand.

 

An impressive fight from Abel Jin looked promising but he couldn’t quite get over the line, going down in 5 long games to New Zealand’s Glenn Templeton. Sam Sergo also went down to New Zealand’s Elijah Thomas 3-0.

 

With the score line now sitting at 18-12, the best the Aussies could hope for was a win on countback but those hopes were quickly dashed when New Zealand’s Courtney Trail proved too good for Grace Pattison winning in straight games in the under 19 girls. Even though the Kiwis had won enough matches to secure the Trans-Tasman Test for another year, there were still matches to be played and the Australian Team was going to keep fighting. Shehana Vithana certainly showed that, reversing her loss from just a few days ago when she beat New Zealand’s Nadia Hubbard in four games.

 

Young Aussie Remi Young (filling in for a sick Lachlan Coxsedge) went down in four games to Keidah Bungard before Joel Arscott engaged in an intense battle with Kiwi Sean Dykes. All the games looked like they could have gone either way and the Aussie even saved a few match balls in the fourth but it wasn’t enough to break his opponent’s spirit. The tenacious Dykes eventually finished off the match in a long, heated fourth game.

 

After last night’s heroics Aussie Nicholas Calvert took the court again hoping to maintain his win streak against the Kiwis and that’s exactly what he did, defeating Temwa Chileshe in four games. The last match of the night again involved New Zealand’s Lwamba Chileshe, this time in an OJC under 19’s final rematch with Australia’s Eugene Heng. The Aussie was out for revenge taking a tight opening game before Chileshe fought back to level it at one game all. Heng looked to get stronger as the match went on finishing it in 46 minutes three games to one.

 

With a final overall scoreline of 21-15, New Zealand take home bragging rights in the Trans-Tasman Junior Test Series for another year.
