What a match tonight against Emerson Eagles 2, more tension and action than watching TV.  All games were very close especially the decider games.
Sohail and Gary were playing some blinding rallies, but narrowly missed out on winning.
Match 1 – 10-21, 18-21
Match 2 – 18-21,17-21
Match 3 – 16-21, 21-15, 18-21

Jonas and Andy kept us tense on the bench, taking 2 games to a decider. With Jonas having a month off down under and Andy being off for a month injured and ill they still managed to win all 3 matches.
Match 1 – 21-18, 12-21, 21-18
Match 2 – 21-17, 21-13
Match 3 – 17-21, 21-9, 21-14

So finally Kiran and Darran were having a mixed bag with 1 win and 1 loss AND so close with:-
Match 1 – 12-21, 20-21
Match 2 – 21-19, 21-20

Great games to watch though. So going on court for their final game it was 4v4.
Their first game went in our favour 21-18, but they lost the second 18-21 so all to play for in the decider (and cake at stake!)

It was a tense game with some great rallies, then Kiran and Darran went 15-20 down.  Facing match point, but not giving up, all was not lost as the next 6 points went in our favour with some great defending and tactical play from Darran and Kiran – finally winning the game and match (to a massive roar from the bench) 21-20.

5-4 to Corinthians 2 and two league points!

Very exciting games to watch.
