Slamming time on court
The juniors continue to make their presence felt in the “B” class division of the Bush Hall Dungeon Road Tennis Competition.
Playing at the Deighton Pa Roach Tennis Centre, Bush Hall, on Monday night, Dario Hinds, following in the footsteps of Emar Edwards, was particularly brutal on Fernando Brathwaite, handing him two “sows” in an embarrassing 21-4, 21-8 demolition.
There was also a straight sets victory for Clyde Griffith, who overcame Wilford Branch 21-15, 21-15.
There was no such luck for Anderson Smith or Adrian Scott though, as they both were forced to fight hard before winning their respective contests in three sets.
Smith actually had to battle back from losing the opening set before clinching a 19-21, 21-18, 21-17 win over Marco Coactor, while Scott was pushed to the limit by Gregory Pinder before eventually winning 21-11, 14-21, 21-19.
In the dungeon class division, Dwight “Munchy” Thornhill, competing in his first ever tournament, pulled off a surprise 15-21, 21-11, 21-12 victory over favourite Michael Rock.
Tyrone Carter was also pushed to the limit by David Alleyne on his way to a 21-8, 19-21, 21-15 win.
However, it was much easier for Henderson Weekes, who defeated Combermere schoolboy Deshawn Sylvain 21-15, 21-15 and Anthony Bowen, who brushed aside Kirk Odle 21-12, 21-5.
Action continues tonight at 7.
