BLACKMAN & GOLLOP smashed their way to another zone victory after winning the Emerald City Zone of the Cave Shepherd/Berger Royale/ A1 Supermarkets Primary Schools Road Tennis Championships at the Rubis Courts, Brighton, yesterday.

Spurred by exceptional performances from Nathan King and Joshua Dourne, they recorded a 4-0 win victory to advance to the next round of the tournament.

Vauxhall Primary had to settle for the second-place spot but they too shared out some lashes on court. They made a clean sweep against Half Moon Fort with Jakobi Lovell defeating Ryhime Gikes 21-18, Tremaine Scott beating Javonte Bovell 21-8 and Quavon McGlean defeating Izahia Thompson 21-16.
