Fixture: Oswestry Ladies 3 v Wollerton Ladies 1
Result: Won 3-1
Jo Dalietos & Linda Davies Lost 3-6 6-4 0-1 Won 6-2 6-2
Catherine Fern & Emily Lowe Won 6-0 6-0 Won 6-4 6-2
Another excellent result for the ladies 3rd team.
Emily and Catherine were on top of their game winning their first rubber without losing a game, an impressive performance, not giving the opposition any chance. Their second rubber was a bit tougher but they still won through with some great net play from Emily.
Linda and Jo got off to a slow start, making too many mistakes, losing the first set 3-6 but they got their act together to take the 2nd set. The 3rd set tie break was very tense. Wollerton took an early lead, but at 1-5 down the Oswestry pair clawed their way back to 7-8. The next 3 points were critical but the oppososition held their nerve better than Linda & Jo and the tie break was lost 8-10. The second rubber should have been as easy win but Jo and Linda had difficulty maintaining their concentration after the disappointment of the previous rubber but they dug deep to win in straight sets.
The team now occupy the first place in their division with 2 matches to play. It is very close at the top with the top 3 teams all on the same number of points. A good win at Criftins next week should secure promotion.
