Men's 1st Team Match
Mon, 18 Nov 2019 00:00
Well on a cold and damp (but no rain!) day the first team chiseled out their first win of the season 3 rubbers to 1 against Southsea.
After the first round, it was 1 rubber each with Southsea edging the sets battle. Step up boom boom Mutley banging down some big serves ad Ricardo Wheeler not wishing to be outdone on the ace counter getting that kicker out wide going. They dispatched Southsea's first pair 6 - 2. 6 - 2.
Now the leg...end that is Pete Wright showed that his slice is still as filthy as ever and his volleying is still as sharp as ever. We lost the first set 6 - 4 to the second pair but bounced back to grab the second 6 - 3. It the came down to a tie break were we were down 5 - 1. We dug in and won the net seven points and clinched the breaker 10 - 7 to win the tie.
Thanks to the team from today and those that have played in the previous fixtures.
Southsea were a great team to play who played the game in a great spirit and they pushed us hard.
