An enjoyable match played in good spirit. Wingfield stormed out of the traps and won the first three sets to take what appeared to be a commanding lead, but West Exe replied emphatically, taking the first doubles and the next three singles.
Wingfield then levelled things up again in the doubles. West Exe eked out a win, taking the decisive final two sets, although the match could easily have gone either way with three of the sets being decided by the minimum margin in the final leg. Silvia Ferre and Sabin Pavel each bagged two sets for the away side, who also collected two doubles.
Louis Wilshire won two for the home side, and every player picked up at least one victory. Mike Ware was perhaps the unluckiest player, the only player to beat Sabin Pavel, but both his losses came in the fifth leg, and on another evening he could have ended up with a maxi.
Silvia Ferre played extremely well for the visitors, and picked up well-deserved first wins against Bob Landberger and Mike Ware. Ed Damaskas never knows when he is beaten, and he and Mike Ware both had match points in their final leg, Ed just managing to hold on to collect his solitary win of the evening.
