Mid Lancs Week K

Report From Paul Eastham:

As fixture started again in 2019 the first match of the year in division 1 was MGS A v MGS C and things weren’t any easier in the New Year for the bottom of the division C team who got bear 16-2. Jared Matthew & Becky Ashton won all of their 6 games.

Hawks A got beat 7-11 at home by the leaders, Cross Feathers, who now share the top slot due to the result below. Overall, a good result for the home side who pushed the Champs to within a whisper of an upset looking at some of the close games & a 15-3 loss last time the 2 teams met. The star on the night was again Rach Graham who took all her 6 games to be the POTM.

MGS B’s match against Carlton A turned out to be a very colourful match indeed, with the building being intruded by local kids who set the fire alarm off and everyone had to clear the building while the fire brigade attended and gave the all clear. Anyway, the match started with 3 split levels sets & Carlton winning both games in the opening Ladies set to take a 3-5 early lead. The visitors then built on this in the 1st mixed set as Andy Davies & Cath Bagley won both games before a split 6th set to leave the score at 4-8. Stuart Holden & Jenny Stothard then won a pair in the 7th for MGS to claw the match back to 6-8, but Andy & Cath wrapped up the match in the 8th set by taking both games to 9 & 1. Tom Lowe & Lynn Hosegood won the final consolation games to finish the final match score at 8-10. Cath was the star on the evening; she won all her 6 to be the POTM.

Seconded place in the division, St. Andrews A had a crunch match with 3rd place team David Lloyd, but I can tell you now when I looked at the card….. I thought it was a wind up (April fools!) The final score was 18-0………. Yep, EIGHTEEN-NIL!!!   I presumed that Andy’s had been on some kind of boot camp mission over Xmas, but they well & truly thrashed them to go top of the table. Karolyn Hustler was statistically the best player on the night, as still catch my breath on the result & how this opens up the race!
