Grange 3 v Abercorn 1, Thursday 4th November

Abercorn came with a strong team. #1 Bruce Russell's decisive style won 3-0 against Gary Walker. #4 Allan Wallace won a hard earned 3-2 from 2-0 down against Brian Montgomery. #5 Stokesy went to the wire with David Ross, a big effort, but lost 8-10 in the fifth. #2 Ali G had arms just long enough to reach Ali MacKenzie's front court action 3-0. ~3 Christy was last on for decider of the night, and met a player even more unusual than himself in Ian Ross. Christy took longer to get used to Ian's game than Ian to Christy's, but he levelled in the 2nd and 4th, pacing up the game whilst Ian was slowing it down. Ian's ability to play the slowest longest drops in the East and from any point on the court was taking its toll, and when these started coming cross court, the fifth game went Ian's way. Final score with ref points was 12-16. Not irreparable, but we're due a win.
