TT1415, Week 7

What's that, I hear you say: whatever happened to week 6? That was a bad week. Actually not so much a bad week as a blank week. A tabula rasa, if you will. No game, no shame. On with the seasonings.

All-male turnout once more for Defiants, that Natalie making herself unavailable and thus protecting her awesome average. She'll be back. Facing us tonight are our old buddies from Manor Club (previously) who, along with us, got promoted last year. Not sure we've ever done that well against them. That's what known as foreshadowing. Turning up are dad Winsley, son Martin and lefty Kevin. In brief:

  • poor 1/3 for Ed, wearing down Winsley over five ends and being worn down by Martin as revenge
  • OK 1/3 for Yang, winning a butt-clenchingly tight and tetchy game against Kevin by 15-13 in the gone-11pm final game
  • very good 2/3 for Steve, notching impressive wins over Winsley and Kevin

Doubles still to play and time now 11:15pm, somehow. Dunno how since we started more or less on time. Probably due to most singles games going the distance. Anyway, little to report, Steve and Ed going down leaving Defiants with a 4-6 defeat. Could have been worse.
