Ottery B gained little Christmas cheer in their trip to Wingfield D and on the face of it were outplayed by their inspired opponents. Wingfield raced into a 6-0 lead with Neil Sear getting the better of Guill Gaston in 5 and Jackie Whitehorn also in 5 against Chris Jones. When Jackie overcame Mike Kavanagh also in 5, the Ottery team were staring at a potential whitewash. Jones however had other ideas and had worked well to overcome Neil Sear in 4 and Chris and Mike combined well to win the second doubles over Neil and Chris.
A recovery looked possible but the Wingfield team had other ideas and quickly shut out any idea of a catch up. Impressive on the night were both Jackie who worked well to win her three, unluckily losing man (or woman) of the match award to her team mate Chris Devlin who's fierce fore hand hitting had the measure of the Ottery team.
An enjoyable night and at least the Ottery team had the consolation of some excellent mince pies served by Neil. Now, what was in them !!
