CURTC 1+ – 2+, The Dedanists

CURTC hosted two matches last Saturday. The CU Ladies took on RTC, see Amanda’s match report below while The Dedanists took on CURTC in a close fought match and even closer fought lunch. The Dedanists came out on top, 2 and a bit to 1 and a bit. The ‘a bit’ bit is a bit complicated due to KK & JB being a bit overfast out of the gate and having to be a bit restrained mid match. Still it was much more than a bit entertaining to watch as we enjoyed a bit of lunch. (That’s enough ‘bits’, Ed)
Previously, the G men (Guy Kirk & Gratts MacGiffin) and Andy Smith had showed exemplary hospitality by letting our visitors win the 2nd set having comprehensively won the first. That was enough for Andy who promptly won the deciding set. The G men seemed determined to get to a 5-All, 40-All finish but were thwarted after probably the best rally of the match ended up in the Dedanists favour with the score only ’40-30′. Amanda then took an even more generous approach by letting her opponent recover from 4-0 in the 1st and 4-1 in the 2nd.
