TABLE TENNIS: Hunnys Heroes had already sewn up the Heacham League title but the battle for second place went down to the fifth end of the final game of the season.

An epic final match saw BT Victory go into their match against Adrian’s Allstars trailing in the table by three points.

Victory had a strong side out with Steve Hales, Mary-Ann Woodhouse and Ian Reynolds in determined mood, while the Allstars, without No.1 Jason Carter, brought in super sub Charley Hammond to join Mick Minns and Mike Nobes.

When Victory won the first four games it seemed all over and after Nobes beat Hales went 6-1 ahead.

The Allstars fought back when Minns beat Hales and Hammond beat Reynolds to make the score 6-3 and put the teams level in the table.

So it went down to the wire. Whoever won the final doubles would finish as runners-up. Five tense ends later it was Victory who took second spot by a single point, thanks to their 7-3 win.

Unbeaten Woodhouse was the player of the night.

At the other end of the table, Spivs Specials were one point ahead of Ringstead Raider with the Raiders playing Sedgeford Stars and the Specials up against champions Hunnys Heroes.

The Raiders went down 9-1 but the Specials played out of their skins to take three points off the Heroes, losing 7-3, just enough to keep them off bottom spot.

  •  TopSpynn look to have tied up the IBA Protect King’s Lynn TTA Premier League title up for the second year running after an emphatic 10-0 win over Pegg Scaffolding.

Pegg’s only had two players available so it was down to Karl, Phil and Ross Brown to win the remaining games.

Ziggys seem to have settled for second place after a 5-5 draw against two-man Wasps. Wasps pairing of Steve Mason and Mike Crowson battled hard for two wins apiece and the doubles.

None of the hosts were able to get the better of Alan Nicholls.

Wisbech Wizards travelled to bottom team Ambit Projects and the only player with a maximum was Grant Brightey for the Wizards. For the home team, Rob Rox won twice with Jeff Chung and Lewis Baldock also chipping in with a win each.

Ambits took the doubles to gain their second draw of the season.

A two-man Heacham A side entertained their first team and put up a fight. Leigh MacDonald and Phil Dorrington won a game each and also the doubles but went down 7-3.

Aaron Howell won both his games and David Wooley and Vaughan Parker won a game apiece.

Avengers took on St James and in an entertaining match the hosts came out 6-4 winners.

Don Dixon, Keith Phillips and Richard Musett all had a brace of wins each. For St James, Serafim Melo was in form with a maximum and paired up with Owen Turner for the doubles.

In Division One, Wisbech Hawks look as though they will be returning to the Premier League as they sit 10 points clear at the top after a 9-1 win over closest rivals Wasps 2.

Craig and Graham Pack hit maximums and, with Graham Sheppard only losing to Igors Scekalevs, it has almost made certain of the title.

The battle for runners-up spot couldn’t be closer with Runcton Holme beating Blades 6-4 to pull level with Wasps 2.

Melvyn Jupp and Graham Warren scored a brace of wins each and Nick Osborne beat Ben Peacock to see them through,
