THE Moliks are closing in on the competition.

At Tuesday night tennis the Gavin Evans-captained team played against the Woodies and narrowed the gap between themselves and the top three teams.

Overall the Moliks won with 37 games to the Woodies' 23.

Cassie Kelly and Liz Geppert, from the Moliks, won a total of 22 games as opposed to 15 won by sisters Catherine and Susan Mahoney who played for the Woodies.

The Woodies, who are number three on the ladder, were weakened by the loss of Tom Barbeler, but Carmen Thamm stepped up to the challenge and was outstanding on the court.

In the first set the Moliks' Trent Faunt and Evans were well matched with Brock Hayden and Carmen Thamm ending the set with a tie.

But the Moliks' Kelly and Geppert outplayed the Mahoney sisters winning six games to one.

And the next two sets were dominated with wins by the Moliks.

But the Woodies' Hayden and Thamm clawed some games back, downing the Moliks' Evans and Faunt six games to none in the last set.

The ladder for the summer tennis fixtures remained the same, but organiser Errol Dunemann said a couple of wins on Tuesday saw a few gains from the teams.

"A Rafters win last night means the top team extended their lead to 35 points," he said.

"And a loss by the number two team, the Hewitts, meant only a point separates them and the number three team, the Woodies, on 31 points.

"But the big winners were the Moliks and the Lavers who had wins this week, meaning they were able to close up the gaps on the ladder among the teams."
