A showdown for first place and several other close matches highlighted Saturday evening's Carroll Cup Tennis League's monthly tournament.
The Love Machine and Crushers were both undefeated when they stepped on the court at the Carroll Racquet Club in Finksburg.
When they stepped off, Love Machine was still unbeaten and in first -- but not by much.
By taking three of five events in the match, Love Machine was given the win under league rules even though the two teams tied in points, 29-29.
Love Machine, now 4-0 and all alone in first, pulled to a 16-9 lead when Roger Coffey and Betty Anthony took the mixed-doubles event, 8-4.
But the Crushers' Liuda Galinaitis and Thelma Lockard's 8-2 women's doubles win narrowed the lead to 18-17.
After Kevin Rash's 8-4 victory in the men's No. 1 singles upped the margin to 26-21, Crushers' captain Chris Weber and men's doubles partner Jim Tolentino won, 8-3.
The Racqueteers edged the Hammers, 31-30, on an 8-4 final-event win by men's doubles combo of John Lynam and Mike Zimmer.
Lynn Larimer's and Maria Vailas' 8-3 women's doubles victory put the Racqueteers on top, 21-18, before Jim Eanes' 8-2 triumph in No. 1 men's singles pushed the Hammers ahead 26-23 entering the final event.
The Aces hung on to edge the Poachers, 33-31.
The Poachers led 21-17 after Linda White and Paula King won the women's doubles, 8-4, but Sean O'Malley's 8-3 men's singles win put the Aces back on top to stay, 25-24.
The Aces' Greg Zielske and Ray Lyons then won the men's doubles event on an 8-7 tiebreaker for the final score.
The Hot Shots rallied to beat the Smashers, 29-23.
Suzi Watson's and Vicki Ferguson's 8-0 women's doubles win put the Smashers up, 21-13, but the Hot Shots dominated thereafter.
Mike Rowe took the No. 1 men's singles, 8-0, to tie it at 21, and Matt Zajac and Barry Troxell won the men's doubles, 8-2, to clinch the match.
The Grand Slams cruised to a 24-8 lead over the String-a-lings and went on to win, 31-24.
The Slams had that big lead after Betty Concha's and Millie Schaefer's 8-1 women's doubles win.
David Johns' men's singles victory along with Johns' and Jim Larimer's 8-1 men's doubles triumph made the final score more respectable.
John's 8-6 singles victory represented the first loss of the year for the Slams' Warren White, now 5-1.
