Summer, 2018 TLTA League Scores

 

Tuesday, 8/7/2018:  It was a bit of a rough night for all considered. As balmy as the tropics with a kickoff temperature in the high 80's and horrible humidity following a thorough soaking earlier in the day. The hard courts were dry, but the players came off all dripping.

Court 1 – The Ehmig team was unfortunately forced to forfeit. 

Court 2 – Janie Ehmig and Jim Doyle fought hard to come out on top against Kelly Priestley and Rick Meckstroth, but the effort was exceptional on all sides, and they took it to a third set tiebreaker.

Court 2 – The Woody captains teamed up to face Terry Pearcy and Richard Cross, and the two proved just strong enough to conquer the match in two sets.

Court 4 – Forfeited by the Woody team, due to an unfortunate shortage of 3.0's. If anyone is available please contact me at rwoody404@gmail.com

Good work both teams!

Thursday, 6/28/2018:  Ehmig/London Team 2 hosts Woody Team 1.

Due to excessive rain earlier in the day, the Wellness Center Courts were flooded; therefore, the match had to be moved to the Chota Hard Courts.  The rain stayed away and cloud cover kept the temperature in the mid 70’s which made it a comfortable evening for tennis. 

A couple hours prior to the match, the Home Team Captains were notified that two key players would be unable to play.  So, it was a tough night for the Home Team, the Ehmig/London Team 2.

Court 1 – Jim Doyle & Janie Ehmig of Team 2 hosted Rusty & Kim Woody of Team 1.  This was a very competitive match but Jim & Janie were eventually defeated by Rusty & Kim 4-6, 4-6.

Court 2 – Richard Cross & Bart Brody of Team 2 played against Rick Meckstroth & Kelly Priestley of Team 1.  Since Team 2 was unable to field this court with a mixed team, Team 1 was the benefactor of an automatic forfeit in their favor 0-6, 0-6.

Court 3 – Team 2’s Larry Byrkit & Debra London put up a good fight with many close games, but Team 1’s Dave Gallelli & Pana Degooyer proved too strong and won the match 2-6, 1-6.

Court 4 – Team 2 was unable to field this court tonight, so they lost to Team 1.  The result was an automatic forfeit 0-6, 0-6.

Congratulations to the Woody Team for winning all 4 courts tonight!

This match was some tight competition, with close sets and two 3rd set, ten-point tiebreakers


Court 1 - Kim Woody and Scott Levin pulled out a tough victory over Jim Doyle and Jo Davis. They clinched the first set 6-2, but the "JD" partnership came back with a vengeance, claiming set two 6-4. In the end, Kim and Scott triumphed in a third set tiebreaker.

Court 2 - We had the battle of the captains, as Janie Ehmig and Randy Hooker stepped up to serve against Rusty Woody and Kelly Priestley. The Woody Team held out again, though, with tight sets 6-3 and 7-5.

Court 3 - This was the fight of the night was without a doubt, where Sonja Paige and Rick Meckstroth split close sets against Richard Cross and Terry Pearcy. Rick and Sonja claimed the first set 6-4, but Terry and Richard came back in the second and finished 7-5. Everyone held their breath in the ten-point tiebreaker, as Sonja and Rick came from behind and triumphed in the end, 10-8.

Court 4 - This proved a challenge for everyone in it, and Riley Woody and Steve Ferrone just barely scraped out a two set win over Larry Brykit and Kathy Porcello, 7-5, 7-5.

Thanks to all who came out to play or support Tuesday night, and props to the Woody team for a 4-0 court victory. Ehmig/London put up a fight, and we expect some nail-biting matches to come.
