Fall, 2018 TLTA League Scores

 

Thursday, 9/13/2018:  Li Team hosted the Priestley Team.

It was a bright sunny day with light winds and 80 degree temperature at match time.  We all enjoyed and appreciated such a beautiful day for tennis.

Court 1 – Congratulations to Kelly Priestley and Dave Case of Team Priestley who defeated Team Li’s Claude Li and Janie Ehmig.  Captain Kelly and a serve-and-volley pro, Dave,won the first set 6 – 1 by dominating the net with devastating volleys in robotic efficiency.  However, the second set was a confidence game.  Claude and Janie recovered from the early shock and mustered all the strength only to momentarily shaken the 2 net dominators’ confidence, therefore succumbing to defeat 5 – 7 in a two-set match. 

 Court 2 – Team Li’s  Mark Sodemann and Terry Pearcy were dominated by Team Priestley’s Rick Meckstroth and Laurie Jones in the first set and lost 1 – 6.  The second set was, however, a full-blown battle where both sides mounted a series of full force attacks at the net.  The more determined Priestley team won the second set 6 – 3.  Despite a straight-sets victory, Laurie felt it was a close match and they were lucky to win.

Court 3 – Team Li’s Randy Hooker and Dori McFarland brought the only victory to their team tonight by defeating Team Priestley’s Brad Barberee and Pat Carver 6 – 2, 6 – 2 with overwhelming power.  According to Randy, it was hard-hitting and in your face.

Court 4 – This was the only match tonight that went on to a third set tiebreak.  A balance of power was the best to describe the match between Team Li’s Greg Slatton and Laura Champagney and Team Priestley’s John Carver and Riley Woody when the 2 mixed double pairs engaged in a hard-fought battle.  At the end, victory went to the bold pair of Team Priestley 6 – 2, 4 – 6, 10 - 2 while Greg and Laura got respect.

Congratulations to the Priestley team for tonight’s victory after winning 3 out of 4 courts!

Tuesday, 9/11/2018:  Li Team hosts the Byrkit/Palko Team on Sept 11, 2018

It was a bright sunny day with light winds and 70 degree temperature at match time.  We all enjoyed and appreciated such a beautiful day for tennis.

Court 1 – Congratulations to Claude Li, the first-time captain, and Janie Ehmig of Team Li who defeated Team Byrkit/Palko’s Richard Cross and Colleen Marley.  Li and Ehmig won the first set 6 – 3 convincingly.  They went on to win the second set 6-4 despite inadvertently losing 0 – 3 initially.   This was a very well played match by both teams demonstrating great dexterity in some exciting rallies.  

Court 2 – Team Li’s  Mark Sodemann and Dori McFarland won the first set 6 – 0 impressively only to lose the second set 4 – 6 as  Team Byrkit/Palko’s Larry Byrkit and Terry Pearcy intelligently switched positions.   The Match was decided in a third set tiebreak 10 – 7 in favor of Byrkit and Pearcy. 

Court 3 – Team Byrkit/Palko’s husband and wife team, Dave and Tricia Hixson, proved to have late strength against Bart Brody and Alyce  Gaston of Team Li as they first lost 2 – 6 and then won the second set 6 – 2 and a third set tiebreak 10 – 8.   Together they had some extended exchange of shots.  Gaston complained that there were rallies too long for her old age.

Court 4 – Team Li’s husband and wife team, Steve and Marsha Standridge, defeated Jack Wright and Debra London of  Team Byrkit/Palko.  After winning the first set 6 – 3, Steve and Marsha Standridge lost the second set 2 – 6 in a similar fashion, but eventually won decisively 10 – 3 in a third set tiebreak and thus the match.

Congratulations to both the Li Team and the Byrkit/Palko team for sharing tonight’s victory after winning 2 out of 4 courts!
