Ladies v Oakbrook (A) - 11/12/15


As the temperatures plummeted Ranmoor ladies headed up the hill to King Edwards VII Lower School to take on Oakbrook in a local Crosspool derby. First up Jane / Cindy and new pairing Jenny / Elaina.  After sorting out shuttles games got underway. Jane and Cindy warmed up losing the first before taking the second and third to 17 and 16. Yea. One up. Jenny and Elaina pkayed some great stuff but narrowly losing out to 19 and 18. 1-1. Lesley and Aparna up next against a slightly weaker pair and after a wobbly start won to 16 and 13. 

Next round of games saw the strongest Oakbrook pair take their game against Jane and Cindy whilst Jenny and Elaina blitzed their game in fine form to 12 and 10. Lesley and Aparna started off asleep and lost their first end before figuring out how to play and win the second and third games both to 19.  

Final round of games and with a score of 4-2 to Ranmoor we just needed one more game. And Cindy and Jane obliged. Well played ladies in a tough 3 ender.  Match to Ranmoor.  Meanwhile Jenny and Elaina were getting used to this league by winning another game!  So all wrapped up Lesley and Aparna took on the last pair in a relaxed manor and lost to 18 and 14. 

A great performance and a much needed win to help us stay in the league. Well played everyone it was a real team effort. Great pairings that worked well together. Well done Claire for choosing!
