Small leads Rising Sun to victory
SHERLOCK SMALL pulled off a crucial singles win and teamed up with Charles Lovell in the doubles to lead Calvary Institute Rising Sun to a second consecutive victory when the Barbados Table Tennis Association’s Division One competition continued on Saturday night.
Playing at the Table Tennis Centre, veteran Everton Forde used his experience to overcome a tough challenge from national player Danielle Walton, but Small was at the centre of Rising Sun’s 3-0 win over National Sports Council’s Combined Schools.
The win followed an identical result the previous week over Mount Gay All Blacks and set the stage for an intriguing battle for the championship.
Small built on the 1-0 lead earned by Forde when he beat Walton 11-6, 7-11, 11-6, 8-11, 11-8 to take out the plucky Dan Francis 3-1. (PH)
