TT1617, Defiants v. Rosary Green

Nearing the end of February 2017, less than half a dozen games to go, and Defiants limp awkwardly towards the sunset end of the season. Yang's departed, Natalie can't play on home nights and now Steve's come off his bike. Ouch all round.

Battling on, still trying to catch up with postponed matches, there's only me and Helen for tonight's rematch against Rosary Green (see last time), a team notable for being the only one beneath us in the league. In other words, they're bottom. Here's spinny Nick, who beat both Yang and Natalie (and me) last time, plus Santa Danny and Sidegate Lane Richard, still going strong. In brief:

  • customary zero for Helen, alas, outfoxed by spin and speed
  • OK 2/3 for me, losing an epic 18-16 game to Nick before eventually getting past Danny and edging out Richard in a fifth end

Over to me and Helen, then, for the doubles, where we did alright. Sure, we lost, but not too disgracefully. Defiants are down and out, I fear.
