Last night we had our internal Combi match in the BHDBL Combi Division 2. The line up for the teams were:-
Jo, Paula, Chris and Leon
Charlotte, Jess, Andy and Ross
The combi matches always start with ladies v ladies and men v men so it was Jo and Paula v Charlotte and Jess on one court with Chris and Leon taking on Andy and Ross on the other court.
The matches turned out to be extremely close with Jo and Paula losing their first game 20-21 but coming back to win the next game 21-12 and the decider 21-15.
On the other court, Chris and Leon were taking on Andy and myself. Despite Chris and Leon winning the first game 21-9, we rallied back and won the second game 21-16 to take it to a decider. It was a lot closer than expected but Chris and Leon won 21-16 to take the decider and make it 0-2 on the night.
After that, it was the mixed matches. Again, these were very close and could have gone either way. Jo and Chris narrowly beat Charlotte and Andy 21-18, 21-18 whilst Paula and Leon beat Jess and I 21-19, 21-15 to make it 4-0 on the night and win the two league points.
The final two mixed matches were close again with Jo and Leon beating Charlotte and I 21-18, 21-12 while Paula and Chris beat Jess and Andy 21-19, 21-15 to close out the 6-0 win on the night.
So it ended up being a rather close game which could have gone either way but for a couple of points here and there. Well done to the first team on their win. They’re now up to second place in the league and in a strong position having won both their opening games.
Next fixtures for the teams are:-
7th Feb – Corinthians 1 v Emerson Eagles 2
12th Feb – Wychelm v Corinthians 2
