Ravenshead Rebels love the Divisional Cup format, as they win their 4th game out of 4 and move top of the league with a 6-3 victory over Jacksdale D.
Although Angela Brettell won POM winning both her singles games on the night for Jacksdale D, it was the victories in the 3 doubles matches where Rebels won this match.
Some real close matches on the night with 4 of the 9 matches going to the 5th and final end.
All the 3 Rebels Mike Cohen, Fionna Ridgwell and Val Tully all won 1 match, but all combined well winning all the doubles, as well as Angela Brettell, Hari Rampall won the other point for Jacksdale D.
Close fought match between the teams top and bottom of the normal league, but this is the Divisional Cup and form goes out the window.
It looked like everything was going to form when Angels took a 5-1 lead with only Glynn Payne beating Anne Lindley the only joy for the Spin Doctors at this stage.
But then Graham Stent beat Anne, Ralph Rodda beat previously unbeaten player Andy Brown, then Graham & Glynn teamed up to beat Adrian Smith & Anne in the final doubles coming back from 2-0 down to take the game 3-2.
Final Score a 5-4 victory for the Angels and in the end a very close match. Adrian Smith was POM being the only person on the night to win both his Singles Matches.
Snipers of St Joseph’s move back to the top with a very hard fought victory against Boothys Ravens 6-3.
It was one of those nights were every game could have gone either way, with 2 games in particular to mention.
Firstly Tony Swain played Phil Parkin, Phil took a 2-0 lead winning 14-12 & 11-9, Tony then dug in and came back 11-9 & 11-6. It went to the decider Phil was 10-7 up and had 3 match points, but tony somehow kept his nerve and went on to win 12-10.
But if we thought that was a good game the best was yet to come. Jim Westwood vs Andy Bunting was a thriller the Pen Holder vs the Green Bat, the table tennis was fantastic the movement of the players the get they got they both played like they were back in their 20's.
it got to 2-2 with Andy winning his to 11-7 & 11-8 and Jim both wins at 12-10, then in the decider in a great last game Jim finally got over the line and won 13-11
Well done Jim & Andy great match

However Dick & John combined in the doubles to win their 2nd point of the Night adding to Dick Johnsons win over Michael Rand.
