TT1415, Week 22

Two games left and, in order to remain in the thin air of Division 2, we need to finish above three other teams. We look to be well clear of bottom club Buzzards and with enough of an advantage over Rosary Yellow. However, Manor D are a single point behind us having played the same number of games.

While Manor D still have to play going-down Buzzards, we're up at the Dome tonight to meet the high-flying no-nonsense table-topping Eagles (previously). No sign of wonder-boy Daniel, phew, but there's still lefty Paul and pimply Rob, he who won the Division 2 title at the Corn Exchange a few weeks back. Just when it looks like their third player hasn't turned up, up pops ex-Division 1 Kevan. Oh dear. In brief:

  • rusty 0/3 for Natalie, playing some great rallies but not winning an end
  • fab 2/3 for Ed, squeezing past Paul and edging out Kevan in a hyper-tense encounter before being obliterated by Rob
  • unlucky 0/2 for Yang, losing out to Paul in five ends and only playing two games, Kevan dropping out due to his persistent tennis elbow

Ed picked Yang for the doubles -- sorry, Natalie -- but they proved too strong with Rob's weird bat and Paul's spinny angles. No matter, that'll be three highly valuable team points. It'll go the distance and be decided in our final match.
