Fixture: Oswestry Mixed 5 v Hinstock 2
Result: Won 4 0
Another excellent win for the team
Matt and Millie won 6-1 6-2 and 6-3 6-1
Richard and Rosemary won 6-4 2-6 1-0 and 6-1 7-5
Matt and Millie have still not dropped a set and even though they were not at their best in this match, the opposition had no answer to their hard hitting and interception at the net. They are an excellent pairing and will no doubt be called upon to play in a higher ranked team next season.
Richard and Rosemary had a real fight in their first rubber. They won the first set in a closely fought contest but let things slip a bit in the second. They pulled through in a very tense tie break 3rd set to win. A great effort. They cruised through the first set of their second rubber but the effort of winning the first rubber began to tell in the second set. They held their nerve and dug deep to win a very tight second set 7-5.
With just one match left the team are 6 points clear at the top of the division and, theoretically, other teams could push them out of contention for promotion but if Millie and Matt continue with their current form, that seems unlikely.
