The Love Machine (6-0) held onto first place in the Carroll Racquet Club's Carroll Cup Indoor Tennis League with a 35-23 victory over the Aces Saturday.

However, the Love Machine struggled early, when Sean O'Malley and Dan Clutterbuck's 8-3 win in the men's doubles event put the Aces ahead 14-11.

The Machine went ahead for good, 19-18, when Dennis Ohme took an 8-4 verdict in No. 2 men's singles.

Debbie Courter and Roger Coffey gave the winners some breathing room with an 8-4 win in mixed doubles and the Machine pulled away.

The Hot Shots won their first four events and cruised to a 33-20 win over the Poachers.

Mike Rowe's 8-1 win in No. 1 men's singles gave the Hot Shots an insurmountable 32-12 lead after the fourth event.

Linda White and Sandy Jankevicius salvaged the final set for the Poachers with an 8-1 win in women's doubles.

The Crushers (5-1) stayed one game behind the Love Machine with a hard-fought 32-29 decision over the Grand Slams.

The Crushers needed an 8-6 women's doubles win from Thelma Lockard and Luida Galinaitis in the final event to hold off the Slams, who had closed to within one point.

The Crushers opened with Allen Wroe's 8-4 No. 1 men's singles win. The Slams' men's doubles team of Andy Mullins and Ross Roche narrowed the gap to 15-12 with an 8-7 overtime decision.

The Slams cut it to 24-23 with one event remaining, when Betty Concha and Warren White won mixed doubles, 8-1.

The Racqueteers won their first four events and rolled to a 37-19 win over the Smashers.

Maria Vailas and John Lynam romped, 8-1, in mixed doubles, giving their team a 33-11 lead.

Sandy Yingling and Vicki Ferguson took women's doubles for the Smashers, 8-5.

The victory pulled the Racqueteers out of last place in the 10-team league.

The Hammers romped over the String-A-Lings, 38-17.

The String-A-Lings were within 14-11 after Jim Larimer and Jim Harbaugh won men's doubles, 8-6, 8-6.

But Jim Eanes, whose 8-3 No. 1 men's singles win had given the Hammers an 8-3 lead, teamed with Shanna Peters for an 8-3 victory in mixed doubles for a 30-15 lead.

That mixed doubles loss for the

String-A-Lings' David Johns was his first Carroll Cup League defeat in two years.
