… Another roaring win this evening at Redwood Lodge for the Bristol Mens team in Div. 2.
Firstly against Beaufort Park who had 3 stand-ins for the evening. There were some very close games in this match, but the momentum swung repeatedly in the Direction of St Luke’s with excellent serving from Steve in the Second set. However, Beaufort top pair were too consistent and Steve and Stuart lost their opener before winning convincingly in the second against Beauforts weaker pair. In the other game, Matt’s consistency and Jamie’s smashing was working wonders as neither man dropped a set all night!
Next up were Raysfield, who had been demoted from Div. 1 the previous season. The score line was a carbon copy, and so was the play almost with Steve and Stuart losing a tight 3 setter to the weaker Raysfield pair this time before winning in 3 against their stronger pair. The splits were again very tight, but close serving from Stuart and power smashing from Jamie lifted them into an early 6-0 lead in the final set and they never looked back. On the other court, Matt and Steve played consistent badminton to ride home winners in straight sets.
Well played Guys!! One more against Chew Park in 2 weeks, before the Xmas break!
