A great team performance all round saw the Broomgrove Combined team win their second match of two in Division 1. Having gone 4-2 up against very good opposition, I had thought that the result was already ours. However, the battling Mosborough side brought it back to 4-4, leaving the final match as a decider. The nail biting three game rubber finally went the way of Broomgrove as Sally and I managed to hold our nerve to the end.
In a post match analysis (at the pub of course) Adam pointed out that all of the rubbers that went to 3 games had been won by Broomgrove. This goes to show firstly how close the match was, and secondly the character and determination of all partnerships in the team. With such a close fought home fixture, I eagerly look forward to the return at Mosborough – I’m sure it will be another very close match.
Special praise to Mary who played exceptionally well on the night, picking up 2 rubbers. The first rubber of the match was a very hard fought 3 gamer with Iris, which set the tone for the match.
Next up is our first away match of the season at Phoenix. Let’s see how long we can keep up these winning ways!
