A captain's knock by Northern Suburbs captain Daniel Huxtable has led his side to back-to-back State League title victories at Launceston's Country Club.
Tasmania's in-form table tennis player, Huxtable, alongside Southern Table Tennis Association's Doug McLean, went undefeated across his 10-game weekend, putting his Glenorchy-based side into a strong position from the outset.
Having won three out of four possible tournaments so far this season, the skipper came into the event with a target on his back and delivered, flying the flag for the Northern Suburbs as they held off their Southern counterparts and the debuting University of Tasmania side.
With the two Southern-based teams all tied up on total match wins and losses on the ladder, their individual matches came into account with the Northern Suburbs defeating their close rivals 11-8 in the final.
Traditional Coastal rivals Devonport and Burnie finished in fourth and fifth place respectively following a nail-biting 11-9 win to the higher-placed side in their encounter.
Australian over-75 representative, Burnie's Margaret Gabbedy was the most successful player for her side as she emerged victorious in eight of her 10 matches throughout the weekend, one of her rare losses coming at the hands of her Devonport opponent.
Hosts Launceston's in-experienced outfit struggled through the tournament, picking up 22 wins across their five outings, with Simon Murray's 50 per-cent win rate their most successful.
