Mens 1 v's Oakbook (A) - 11/1/13

A return to action after the christmas break saw Mens 1 pay a visit to neighbours Oakbrook 1, who had already been beaten at home earlier in the season.  The usual team assembled to play a team showing a couple of changes from our first meeting.  The different conditions to our home court saw the first 2 pairs struggle for rhythm.  Both pairs went down in straight ends leaving an early deficit to try and overturn.

Third pair Dave & Andy at least managed to take their game to 3 ends before losing 21-19 in the decider.  This was an unusual position for the side being 3-0 down, Rich & Dave managed to get a win on the board against the 2nd pair but again both Dave/Andy and Sam/Ravi couldn't get either of their games into 3 ends.  With the game gone at 5-1 it just left pride to play for in the last round of games.

Of the last round of games only one made the full distance.  Rich & Dave had a win conceded to them by the opposition whilst Sam had to pull out of the last match with injury.  Dave & Andy at least managed to take their game to 3 ends once again before losing out 21-15.  So a first defeat of the season for Mens 1 of 7-2 means we're still top of the table but need to bounce back in our next match away to Jaguar 1.
