Rothborough Dakotas 27 v Corby Smash ‘C’ 13

REPORT:

Higham came through what was a great match where there were no more than two points separating the teams until the doubles. Corby took a slender lead when Henry beat Mark 3-1 with Richard B then levelling the match, beating Kyle the same score. Richard E and Chris shared the spoils and tied 2 all. Kyle started convincingly against Mark going into a 3 nil lead but the experience of Mark showed when he took the final end. The match was level at 14 all before Mark got an excellent 3-1 win over Chris. Higham then sealed the match winning the first two ends of the doubles.

Westfield ‘A’ beat premier opposition Burton ‘A’. Burton made a solid start when Jacek got the better of Kevin 3-1. Westfield then took the next two games 3-1 with Brian beating his jinx player Alex and Rouman had a good night winning 3-1 against both Martin and Jacek. Burton trailing going into the 8th singles match needed a good win and Jacek provided that with an excellent 3-1 win over Brian. Westfield held their nerve and took the doubles 3-1 to narrowly win on the night.

Rothborough Arrows and Westfield ‘B’ tied the first game 2 all, but from there on in it was one way traffic as Rothborough won at a canter, the star player was Helen

who won all her games 4-0, 4-0 and 3-1. The Westfield team seemingly having an unusually bad night.

Kites came through another close encounter where Westfield ‘E’ could not have asked for a better start winning the first eight legs. Geoff then halved the score by beating Eleanor 4-0. Games five and six were shared with Kites then stepping it up winning the next couple 3-1 and 4-0. Eleanor, making her first cup appearance, was very unlucky losing four deuce games to Stewart.

Burton Baptist Team Jim took the first game 4-0 courtesy of the star man of the night Harry. Six of the next seven games were all shared before Burton won the final singles and doubles 4-0. Another person making his first cup appearance was James of Corby.

Corby Halesowen match against Old Village also provided another tight finish which also went down to the doubles. Charlie was in good form for Old Village winning nine of his twelve ends. After six games Corby looked to be in control leading 15-9, but two great 4-0 wins as a result of Anthony beating Ann and Charlie beating John so giving Old Village the slender lead. The match went into the doubles with points tied at 18-18 but Corby came through to win the final game of the night 3-1.

Harborough ‘B’ overcame Harborough ‘E’. It looked like this match was going down to the wire when the first three games were all shared. However, the ‘B’ team tipped the cup tie in their favour when winning thirteen of the next sixteen ends. Ron kept the tie alive having a good win over Liam 3-1.
