Match Report

So with the same Castaways side put in to bat again they reversed the score from last week (no one was more surprised than me when Andy turned up as he was not due to play so I let him) and it was almost the perfect answer.

Keld opened up and despite a little wobble won three straight against Jeremy who was to have an almost night. 

Pete then had an almost routine win over Mike but not without a little wobble in the third. 

Andy then had the most interesting and close game of the evening coming from an almost impossible position to win. From 9-2 down against Winston in the fifth he managed somehow to claw his way back to win on deuce. 

Pete followed this with a fairly routine win over Jeremy though he dropped a leg. 

This brought us to Keld v Winston and just as in the same game in the first half Keld just could not force his way through some fabulous blocking and counter hitting from Winston and lost three straight again to give Treasury their only success of the evening. 

Andy then had a routine win over Mike before Pete fought out a five legger with Winston that looked as though it had escaped him before he recovered to take the last two legs comfortably in the end. 

Andy then beat Jeremy in four before Keld took little trouble over winning three straight against Mike. 

The doubles was a three straight affair but with two deuces it wasn’t quite a straightforward win. 

So whilst the title may have gone Castaways made a strong claim to the runners up spot whilst Treasury still have a shot at fourth.
