Team: Helen R, Anne, Zoe, Alex, Graham, Richard.
Result: Won 18-0
It was away to Crusaders this week against a (mostly) young and inexperienced side. Unfortunately they were also missing their 3rd lady so whilst we gained 6 games, Helen and Anne only got to play 2 games. It was a fairly straightforward run to the line with a couple of “wobbles” in 2 of the mens’ games before taking a convincing 18-0 victory and the full 4 points !
Team: Zoe, Anne, Jane, Alex, Graham, Richard.
Result: Won 14-4
Alex and Richard saved a slightly “flaky” first game with setting before taking control and with strong performances from the ladies we were 6-2 up after the levels. As in the previous week, the mixed events saw some close battles with Graham and Anne setting twice but fighting hard to steal both close games. Solid overall games tallies from Jane and Anne but after scoffing half a bag of Haribo, Zoe was on fire to improve on last week and take her first(?) 6 so far. Well deserved 14 games and max points again but trickier matches are looming!
Team: Zoe, Helen R, Jane, Richard, Graham, Ben.
Result: Won 13-5
A great start to the season for the “E” team, away to Evergreens kicking off with a 15-0 first game debut for Ben and an 8-0 lead by the end of the levels despite a couple of setted games. The mixed brought some tougher games, 4 very close (including a Harrison 17-16 special) but we still finished with maximum points. Thanks to Helen R for playing at very short notice, great play by Zoe on 5 games and top marks for Jane and Ben !!
