Team: Jane & Sonja, Ada & Becca, Sally & Sam
The much anticipated match against old friends Ranmoor didn’t quite go to plan. Ranmoor had so far won all of their matches with an impressive 9-0 and it was our intention to end their clean sheet. However, there is a reason why they have won all their games with such a high margin. Jane kindly stepped up to the mark again, replacing Laura who was otherwise engaged. Ranmoor made sure to capitalise on this and hence the first pairing of Jane & Sonja struggled to get to the double figure mark in all of their matches. The remaining two pairings fared a little better with their matches being much closer. Ada & Becca lost against Ranmoor’s second pairing with a close fought 22-20 & 21-18; while Sally & Sam took their third pairing to a three rubber thriller. They won the first rubber 11-21, followed by a narrow defeat in the second rubber of 27-25 (!). The intensity of the second rubber must have taken it out of them as they were unfortunately defeated in the final rubber. So close, yet so far.
We are looking forward to the return match at home where we will try and do something about that clean sheet of theirs.
