St Andrews “E” v Clayton Crusaders “C” – 29th Oct 2012

Team: Zoe, Jane, Anne, Robert, Henry, Richard.
Result: Won 10-8
Close opening games set the tone for the whole match but both were lost whilst Robert reminded Richard what the stringy bit was for. Convincing wins for Anne and Jane then 4 more very close games with setting in Zoe’s left us 2 adrift by the end of the levels. More close games levelled the match after event 6 before Henry and Zoe got into their stride to take us 2 ahead. A slight wobble gave Crusaders the chance of a draw but in the final game Henry and Zoe were having none of it and changed their gameplan to snatch a well deserved 10-8 victory. A great match with 10 close games and Anne as top scorer with 5.
