7th A League vs. UJ

Match summary, we were outclassed by the youth brigade.

First on was George, who unfairly reserved 4th spot just because he was there first. He put up a game fight against Thabo (who mysteriously appears as Jared on the score sheet).
At 2-1 up it looked like George might prevail, but the wheels came off a bit in the 4th and 5th games, when Thabo started reading the two-handed backhand. Best match of the evening.

Next on was Paul against wily Grant, who was just too good. Paul put up some resistance in the 2nd game and caught Grant out a few times by delaying his shot long enough to get awarded strokes, but it was one way traffic.

Next door, Nick the Greek engaged Murray in similar battle. Despite taking the third game and playing the broken ankle card (the race card would have been pointless), Nick also succumbed.
Steph on last against James fared no better. A brief glimmer of form in the second game vaporised in the last two games.

All done and dusted by 20h30. The youth said they had to go home to their mothers, so the adults went off to Doppios for much needed refreshment.

Grant vs Paul:                    3-0:        15-9, 15-12, 15-9
Murray vs Nick:                 3-1:        15-8, 15-4, 8-15, 15-9
James vs Steph:                3-1:        15-9, 8-15, 15-8, 15-8
Thabo vs George:            3-2:        17-15, 10-15, 13-15, 15-8, 15-8

Match score: 4 - 16
