4th A vs Alberton

Tough fixture against one of the top teams in 4th league.

Ryan back at number one went on first, much improved performance from last week but faded in the 4th to lose 3-1.

Flip then went on against a very tall and hard hitting opponent, tough going in the first game but came back well to win the second, lost the 3rdand then took advantage of a tiring opponent for a good 3-2 win.  

Dave then went on and needed the first game to warm up losing quite easily, then showed his usual skill and fighting spirit for a hard fought 3-1 win.

Vevek played Mike at the same time on the next court, lost the 1st 22-20, won the next two game very closely, then had the game almost won with 3 match points in the 4th but could not convert, went on to lose the 5th resulting in a points countdown. (Vevek’s first loss of the season)

After several re-counts, we confirmed our status as unlucky losers once again by 8 points. The team then stayed at the club to enjoy the hospitality and some great food provided by our hosts.

Overall result: Won 9 - 11
