TT1213, Week 9

Once more unto the Butterfly for Steve, Kennedy and Ed, once more. Home match against the first of three Capel teams: well done, the village of Capel, for fielding so many teams. Capel D -- not B, not C -- have brought along their strongest three players, those being high-in-the-averages Nick, who's lost only two games this season, plus father and son Keith and Peter. Game on at 19:45. In brief:

  • 2/3 for Kennedy, doing fantastically to beat Nick in five, coasting past Keith but coming unstuck against Peter's pimples
  • 1/3 for Ed, also beating Keith and, despite being 2-1 up against Nick (as per Colin last week), losing in the fifth, and equally powerless v. Peter
  • 0/3 for Steve, playing aggressively to go 2-0 up against Keith before his opponent came back to life, leaving Steve kicking himself

Fun late doubles, Kennedy/Ed against Nick/Peter. Tried our best to lose from 10-6 up in the 4th, then scrambled an edge to win 11-9 in the fifth. Happily take that 4-6 result, though at our best we might just have won.
