Brandon Bullets v Comets
Comets were down to the bare bones for their against the number 2 team in the league and anything gained in this game would be a huge bonus.
With injuries, sickness, social engagements, newly born babies and moving players up to higher teams Comets were reduced to ‘lucky’ Peter Whitfield and promoted from Eagles the player with the most powerful forehand in the club, Young Luke Dumighan and of course Forfeit was their third player who gave three away before the game started. Bullets aren’t second in the league by chance, they have two of the best youngsters in the North East in Simone Knopf and Jack Jacomb alongside the wily Veteran Tony Taylor who still doesn’t lose too many games.
Simone and Jack were far too good and won all three and combined for the doubles, the only difference for MVP was Simone who didn’t drop any ends whereas both Peter and Luke did create a few problems for Jack before he came through. Luke put up a good show against Tony and Simone and attacked at every opportunity and when his consistency improves he will be some player. The only blip for Bullets was Peter’s dogged display and in taking Tony to five ends, tired him out and Peter ran out 13-11 in the final end to give Comets a point in a 9-1 victory for Bullets.
Eagles v Brandon Devils
A patched up Eagles team turned out against Devils and added Guy Wong to their team of Harry Veitch and Toni Wong against the much more experienced Chris Leishman, Ian Cumpson and Paul Lupton. Harry had an excellent match against Chris taking the first two ends but Chris took the next three, and that was the closest that Eagles came to gaining any points. The match was played in a great sporting manner and was a credit to the youngsters who never gave up at any point but unfortunately came away with nothing in a 10-0 defeat
