Batesville’s No. 1 doubles team of Kelli Hartman and Brooke Bradford suffered a loss to Brebeuf in the first round of regional play at Carmel on Saturday. The Lady Bulldogs were defeated 6-4 and 6-3.“Brooke and Kelli played very good tennis, but came up short against a very talented team. It was probably the best tennis they played all season and they were great representatives of BHS.” Batesville Coach Bryan Helvie.
After Matchday Two of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers there are nine teams with a perfect winning start. Among the lot are two teams – Cameroon and Uganda – who are unblemished as they have recorded their two wins without conceding any goals.–Togo are the surprise leaders in Group A after a 2:1 home win over Liberia in their opening qualifier was followed with an 0:2 away win in Djibouti last Friday.Their toughest test however comes next March – a double header against 2004 champions Tunisia – who are second after slumping to a 1:0 defeat in Liberia at the weekend.Wins over Botswana – 2:0 at home in June – and 0:1 in Comoros on Saturday means Uganda top Group D unblemished. The Cranes, who are bidding to return to the continental showpiece for the first time in 39 years, face their toughest challenge next against Burkina Faso. Both teams will clash home and away in March next year.Group F has two among the perfect nine. Cape Verde lead Morocco on goal difference after thrashing Sao Tome 7:1 at home in their opening qualifier, before winning 1:2 in Libya at the weekend. The Atlas Lions on their part defeated Libya 1:0 at home in June, before spanking Sao Tome 0:3 away. Both leaders will clash over two legs in March next year to determine who rules the group going into the final two games. Egypt are firing again and they lead Group G with two wins over Tanzania – 3:0 at home in June – and a 1:5 crushing of Chad in N’Djamena at the weekend. The Pharaohs will however face their sternest test against Nigeria next. Two games in Nigeria and Egypt over four days in March next will likely determine which one of these two giants returns to the flagship African tournament after both missed the 2015 finals.Ghana are in control of Group H after a 7:1 bashing of Mauritius at home and a 0:1 away win over closest rivals Rwanda at the weekend. Up next for the Black Stars are the struggling Mambas of Mozambique who have lost their opening two games. The Mambas visit Ghana in the first of a double header in March next year and few can bet against the Black Stars making it three wins in three, if not four in four.Top-ranked African side Algeria lead Group J as expected with two straight wins. The Desert Foxes hammered Seychelles 4:0 at home in their opening qualifier and followed that with a 1:3 victory in Lesotho at the weekend. Up next will be a double header against Ethiopia who are unbeaten in second place with four points.The Teranga Lions of Senegal are on the prowl in Group K where a 3:1 home win over Burundi in June and a 0:2 win in Namibia means they are three points clear at the top. They will tackle third-placed Niger on Matchdays Three and Four next March.Cameroon are kings of Group M, and are unblemished after defeating Mauritania 1:0 in Yaounde in the opening round, and winning 0:1 in Gambia at the weekend. The Indomitable Lions face their toughest test next March when they take on wounded South Africa home and away.
