St Andrews E v Penwortham B

Team: Richard, Graham, Harry, Charlotte S, Lily, Hannah B

Result Won 11-7

The Rubies bounced back after their defeat last week with the same team, to achieve a great win over another of the teams who are setting the pace in Div 6.
It was a very even game up to event 7 when St Andrews led 8-6. Graham and Lily just failed to clinch the match in event 8. Having taken the first game convincingly, they proceeded to throw away a good lead in the second.
So, at 9-7 it was left up to Richard and Charlotte to finish it off which they did in style although they had to fight back  from behind in both games. I thought that
everyone was on top form in this match and took vital games. Congratulations to
Richard who took all his 6 games and a special mention for Lily who would also
have taken 6 if Mr H had not run out of steam.

St Andrews D vs Evergreens B

Team : Dave, Colin, Josh, Lucy, Anne, Hannah P
Result: 15-3 Win

Score Card

No game last week because of the postponement, so everyone was keen to get playing again and it showed. The score was 8-0 after the levels with Josh and Hannah holding their own playing at 3, and we got to 13-0 with 4 points in the bag before we dropped a game.  Our top pair Dave and Lucy both picked up maximums to be best on the night. A really good performance all round.

St Andrews E v Whittle C – 12th October

Team: Charlotte S, Lily, Hannah B, Richard, Graham, Harry.
Result: Lost 6-12

Two weeks on from a resounding victory against the “D” team, the “ruby team” met the more experienced Whittle “C” at their place. After a first game win for Harry, the opposition then went into a commanding 6-2 lead after the levels. Richard and Charlotte fought to get all 4 of their games but copious consumption of chocolate biscuits, tea, crisps and a wide selection of sweets by “the rubies” couldn’t prevent Whittle getting into their stride towards the 12-6 victory. The home team took 6 of the last 8 games despite great efforts by Lily, Hannah and Graham to make them work for 4 close games.

St Andrews E v Evergreens C

Team: Charlotte S, Lily, Hannah B, Richard, Harry, Robert.

Result: Won 11-7

Another good away win and creditable E team debut for Robert with a 15-1 first game!The men split their sets and the ladies dragged us back to 6-2 after the levels. Games were won by all, including great performances by Hannah and Charlotte (who each got 5 games) and four close games for Harry and Lily finishing the night with a fab 15-13 final game win. A really friendly Evergreens team but “no mercy” next time!
