Ladies v Notts Northern (H) - 27/10/14

Ranmoor Ladies faced Notts Northern at home on Monday night, to try to avenge their 9-0 defeat in their first match of the season. With Captain Lesley pulling out due to illness, Cindy and Jane, Aparna and Jen and Karen and Helen made up the team.

Karen & Helen took the first point, comfortably beating their first pair to 13 and 15. Aparna and Jen put up a good fight in their first match, just losing out to 16 and 17.  Cindy and Jane took on the third pair and had an epic three-ender which - unusually for Ranmoor! - ended in a win. Aparna and Jen playing together for the first time competitively, unfortunately couldn’t take their other two matches - our thanks to Jen for playing with an injured knee! Karen and Helen lost against the second pair, but played well in their final game, winning to 13 and 16. Cindy and Jane lost their second game, but won their final game to 15 and 16.

So it was a narrow 5-4 loss for Ranmoor Ladies - but a great performance all round and some potentially vital rubbers won. Next up Beaverhill - hopefully for a first win of the season!
