Back to back flags for Grade 2 women

Kooyong’s Grade 2 women have won back to back flags after a magnificent performance in the final on the weekend.

Facing a Hawthorn side coming down from Grade 1 in 2016, Anna Clarkson’s side had the task in front of them but came out with all guns blazing.

In the singles matches it was the captain getting things underway against her opposite number one and former State Grade star Kelly Cooper and it was Cooper who got her side away to the perfect start with a straight sets win 6/1 6/4.

From there it was all Kooyong as Isabelle Gemmel dominated her singles match with Belinda Kleverlaan 6/4 6/0 while Sarah Brooks also won in straight sets 7/5 6/4 against Lucy Roze to put her side in front.

The final singles match turned out to be crucial in the scheme of things as Natalie Baic battled it out with Hawthorn’s Tiffany Gourley who won the first set in a tiebreak.

Baic forced her way back into the match by winning the second set 6/4 to force it into a tense deciding set and she continued her good form to win the set and the rubber 6/7 6/4 6/3.

The three rubbers to one lead was a fantastic start but there was still plenty of work to be done to secure the pennant with four doubles rubbers to come.

The first two doubles matches were nearly mirror images as both pairs fought for every point.

Clarkson and Gemmel lost a tight three set match against Hawthorn’s top pair, Cooper and Roze, 7/6 3/6 6/3 while Kate Walker and Jill Meggs were able to get themselves on the positive side of another three setter 6/3 6/7 6/3 to get the team within a whisker of victory.

In the crossover doubles matches it was Clarkson and Gemmel that stamped their authority on the final with a dominant 6/2 6/2 win over Gourley and Nadine Moloney to clinch the flag for Kooyong.

Congratulations to all of the players that played in this team throughout the season!
