TT1112, Week 1

Big, big game tonight. Up in Manchester, not here. Down at Martlesham was a game between Defiants -- already crowned Div 3 champions, yay, and Bright Stars -- already pinned to the bottom. That's some dead rubber. This particular fixture should have been played in the very first week. Hey-ho.

No matter, we've pongs to ping. Thanks to dad Neil and son Ed for making the effort to form 2/3 of a team and provide some opposition for our rusty selves, it being nearly three weeks since our last game. In brief:

  • both points for Ed, the senior putting the junior in his place before sweating to beat a very useful Neil 3-1
  • both points for efficient Kennedy, not dropping a game
  • single for Andy, going down 3-1 to Neil

Customary doubles for Ed and Kennedy. Won first two ends, cruising at 7-2 up in the 3rd before throwing it away, Ed junior playing a super crosscourt winner to take a deserved point and so double their tally. And that's it for another season: 23 points clear and top of the league!
