The TSS team suffered a heartbreaking loss on Saturday against Gregory Terrace, with the match hanging in the balance until the last set of the last rubber. It was neck and neck throughout the whole day with TSS winning the opening doubles match 6/4 6/4 at the #1 position against the GT #2 team, but falling 6/3 6/4 at the #2 position.
The singles was also tied at 2 rubbers all, with Max McCarthy and Ryan Selvey coming away with hard-fought wins, while William Timoney and Jack McCarthy fell in their matches. With the match level at 3 rubbers all, it came down to the final doubles matches of the day and TSS was looking the goods after getting up an early break in each set. However, the GT teams surged back and came away with one of the first sets 7/5, while TSS won the first set 6/3 on the other court.
Unfortunately the TSS teams struggled to hang with the power and energy of their GT opponents in the second sets of their matches, and eventually lost both second sets 6/2 and 7/6. This put the win out of reach for the boys and sealed a narrow GT victory.
The boys will bounce back next week against Ipswich Grammar.
