Facing off with the number two seeds — Michael Nanton and Trevor Sam — Span and Connell were pushed to the limit.

Spann and Connell were cruising at 5-2, with the title in sight, but Nanton and Sam drew on their reserves and rallied back, to lead 7-6.

A missed volley shot by Sam gave Spann and Connell a lifeline, which they clutched and crossed out the contest 9-7.

It was the second successive doubles title for Spann and Connell, who drove away with the Suzuki doubles title in August.

The Grassroot Tennis Club closes off a packed year of activities this Saturday with the SVG General Services Limited Junior Christmas, which served off yesterday. (RT)
