St Andrews “E” v Preston College “B” – 21st Oct 2013

Team: Jane, Anne, Zoe, Alex, Graham, Richard
Result: Draw 9-9

Our first “nail-biter” of the season was away at Preston College. The men struggled at the start but commanding performances from the ladies left us 5-3 up at the end of the levels. Zoe and Richard opened the mixed with a 17-16 defeat and uncharacteristically lost both games to level the score at 5-5. Alex and Jane dropped a game but powered back 15-2 to level the score again at 6-6. Graham and Anne also rallied hard in their second game in event 7, taking us to 7-7. Zoe and Richard then redeemed themselves,  grabbing the lead back to 9-7 but Preston College’s number 1 pair were too strong in the final event and they pulled back the draw. Top scorer was Jane with 5, closely followed by Zoe on 4.
