TT1213, Week 6

Down to Rosary -- again -- and the weather is unseasonably mild, making for warm playing conditions. Last time was against their Yellow team; tonight, in keeping with the downs and downs at Portman Road, we're battling Blue. So that's choppy Colin, spinny Adrian and ex-Baylham nice-guy John.

Unusual order with Kennedy needing to head off early, hence playing games 1, 3 and 5, the rest of us happy to work around that. In brief:

  • 2/3 for Kennedy, beating Adrian in four and John, impressively, in five
  • 1/3 for Steve, out of his skin to also beat Adrian and then to give John a real scare, losing out in the fifth and final end
  • 0/3 for Ed, huffing and puffing but losing all three in straight ends: poor

Their star player was Colin, losing a single end the whole evening. Thus Steve (deservedly) and Ed (less so) in the doubles, getting oh-so-close but ultimately losing. Another night, we might have not done so well, though hopefully we'll pick up some more points on the return match. We shall see.
