The Waveney Hits propelled themselves to the League Cup final after a comprehensive win at Mill Lane last Friday.

The Beacons fired themselves up but were extinguished by the Hits. Martyn Gregory gained a maximum as did Stuart Mortimer with sweeping forehand drives.

Hits go on to play the winner of the remaining semi-final between Dominators and Piranhas to be decided next week.

The first division is shaping into a three way contest with big wins for the top two teams and consistent performances from the chasing Tables. Waveney Tables had to prove their worth in a close tie against the Terminators.

Wally Ladmore took an early scalp when he defeated Terminators star Paul Wright, but Charles Goddard took revenge for his team beating Ladmore in the third set.

Only the final hard fought doubles swung the win and the lion's share of the points to the Tables.

Harry Waller had to fight for his maximum points for Piranhas against Trimwise, all three games went a third set, while Phillip Tye scored a lonely point for Trimwise.

And Mutford Monsters roared back to winning habits after decimating the Shakers at the Lowestoft Community Church.

In the second division, Gorleston Conservatives enjoyed a closely contested and sporting encounter against the Kites.

Reg Cadmore can be excused for feeling little disappointed after taken all three games to a third set without a point for his efforts, but his teammates Albert Cadmore and Malcolm Vasey provided recompense with maximum points and another Conservative win.

Meanwhile, Dave Logan did his level best for the Hits against the Merlin's Magic. However, the Mutford team had the match under control and went on to win 8-2.

Stuart Faulkner took a set from Chris Trindall in his opening game, but the Critters soon swarmed all over the Arrows.

The remaining Presidents Cup match went the way of the Monsters who'll now face up to the Misfits in the next round.
