Women take over Dungeon


Share post:

THE WOMEN picked up where the men left off when the Bush Hall Dungeon Road Tennis Competition continued at the Deighton “Pa” Roach Tennis Centre last week.
With the men given the night off, the 12 women who took centre stage did not disappoint.
In the opening round, Suzanne Webster registered a 21-18, 21-16 win over Sabrina Scott, while Sheldene Walrond had a comfortable 21-8, 21-12 victory over Crystal Beckles.
Rachel Smith was punishing during her 21-6, 21-10 demolition of Mariama Eastmond, and after a tough first set, Sherene Ward returned with a vengeance to down Shernelle Cumberbatch 22-20, 21-8.
The second round featured some interesting matchups, including a three game thriller.
Smith had looked set to dismiss Estephene Holder in straight sets after sowing her opponent 21-8 in the opening game.
But Holder rebounded to take an exciting second set 24-22 and force a third and decisive set.
That too went down to the wire, with Smith eventually holding on to win 22-20.
Juliette Worrell also had a hard-fought 21-16, 21-17 victory over Walrond and Julia Morris Young advanced to the semi-finals with a 21-11, 21-10 clobbering of Webster. (RB)
