Match Report

The second Pegasus/Rowhedge encounter in 5 days mirrored the first one in many ways. This time the D team of Leung, Edwards and Lombardi took on an unchanged Pegasus A in Birch. The match between Ian Whiteside and Martin Edwards was another classic attack v defence and Edwards' pacy forehand shots quickly took him to a 2-0 lead. Whiteside showed his familiar range of demanding returns to take the 3rd but there was no stopping Edwards in the 4th as he powered to victory aginst the previously unbeaten Pegasus player. Steve Noble and Paul Lombardi played out a seesaw 5 setter where both players had match points before Noble squeaked home 14-12. Rob Bozier already had 2 scalps when he stepped up against Martin Edwards in a high intensity encounter that Bozier managed somehow to capture from seeming defeat after saving four 5th set match points. Once again the 8-2 scoreline was flattering to Pegasus as several games were decided by small margins and could easily have gone to the visitors but they extend their lead at the top of D1.
