Thurston Victors 5-5 Stowmarket Leopards
14/09/205 - Ian Freeman
The season started with a close match between the two teams. Leopards made a great start taking the first two games with convincing wins for Ian Bridgeman and Keith George.
Ian Freeman stopped the slide for Victors picking up the third game. Then followed two 5 set games which could have gone either way with Ian Bridgeman getting the better of Stuart Blakey, then Peter Branfield just beating Mel Redit.
Thurston then went on to win the next 3 games with two more wins for Ian Freeman and 1 For Stuart. Just when it looked like Thurston was going to win Keith played a great last game for the leopards to make it 5/4 going into the doubles.
This went to 5 sets with Leopards taking it 12/10 in the fifth. Thus this enjoyable match ended 5 all.
