WITH only two teams now unbeaten, division two could be a tight affair this season in the IT Sports Mixed Tennis League.

Mark Bland and Sheila Duxbury top scored to seal the points for David Lloyd in a tough match at Sherburn after they had home advantage in beating Bishopthorpe led by Andy Holmes and Fran Mutter.

They are ahead on 'games difference' from Wetherby Castlegarth who had David Woon and Becki Jones winning 29 games against Bubwith.

Woon then teamed up with Angela Wood to win the same games against a useful Poppleton side.

Rufforth won their first match, inspired by unbeaten James Edmond and Sue Yoward, at Bishopthorpe.

There is no change at the top of division one as leaders Poppleton beat York with Jack Hanna and Claire Morrell unbeaten.

Brad Swainston and Rebecca Hill proved too good for Heworth - winning 32 games to keep Dunnington in second place on games difference from a Fulford side led by Josh Beavers and Kelly Spry with 28 games.

Fulford are top of division three, on games difference, as one of just three unbeaten teams. Zak Sheppard and Jill McCreedy ended with a 11-1 to ensure the win over Cliffe and stay ahead of nearest rivals York who took the points against Wigginton.

Experienced Ed Martin and Angela Smith made sure Rowntree Park moved into third but they were pushed all the way by visitors Wilberfoss.

Riccall won their second match of the season, against Copmanthorpe, with new pairing George Lintott and Louise Marshman winning 29 games.

Poppleton picked up their first win, over Dunnington, and remain unbeaten.

Tollerton are top of division five after drawing with Cawood and stay ahead of Fulford on games difference.

Tollerton opened with Josh Hunt and Ed Hope leading the way with 28 games against Bishopthorpe.
