IN THE CTA, the much anticipated show down between Echuca South 1 and Echuca South 2 delivered a match only separated by six games.

With four sets remaining, ES1 had ES2 on the ropes, but back to back dominant sets saw 2 come within a few games of their inter-club rivals.

A strong performance by Brighton and Dixon in the penultimate set was enough to lock the game.

In Junior B Murray, Rochester 11 and LBU 6 produced the most stunning result of the season, becoming the first match in any section to end the game in a complete deadlock at three sets, 24 games a piece.

In the GMLTA, it was another Echuca v Echuca match that stole the show, with just three games separating the Cats and Bulldogs at the end of the match.
