Comb 1 v Broomgrove (H) - 3/3/14

Monday night’s home game pitted Ranmoor Combined 1 against Broomgrove - last year’s champions, and likely to be this year’s as well! With Mark still sadly absent, Dave W stepped up into the team at number 1. The ladies kicked things off, with a victory to 17 and 18 - well done Karen and Helen.  The other ladies doubles game went to Broomgrove, 12 and 14. Unfortunately the men didn’t fare so well, Sam and Dave losing to 9 and 15 and Rich and Dave to 15 and 19, nearly taking it to a third end. 3-1 after the doubles.

The mixed kicked off positively, with Karen and Rich taking their first game 21-15, 22-20 in a hard fought contest against a strong pair. Broomgrove then tightened their grip and won the remaining four games in straight ends, to take the match 7-2.  An expected result against a really strong team. Thanks to Dave W for playing.  Roll on Westfield Saturday morning, when Arun makes his Combined 1 debut, stepping in to fill Mark’s boots.
