Men's B vs. Abingdon E

Sat 23 Oct, 2021 - Away

Won - 8-0

We had a very decisive win today against Abingdon's Mens E.

Our team consisted of Jie and Peter as 1st pair and Makoto and Orial as 2nd pair.

In the first round Peter and Jie won quite comfortably 6-3 & 6-1 against a consistent pair but who made too many unforced errors. Makoto and Oril had a great tussel and held on to take the 1st set 7-5 and then steadied and took the second set 6-4.

So thats NGLTC 4 points,  Abingdon 0 points as we headed into the reverse rubbers.

Against their first pair Peter & Jie stormed to the lead 5-0 before Abingdon won their first game but we went on to win  6-1. In the second set Peter and Jie were up 3-1 when Abingdon steadied (and we wobbled a bit)  and won the next 3 games to be leading 3-4. Peter and Jie regrouped, said not today and won the next 3 games to win 6-4.

On the other court Makoto and Oriol were having some great rallies and prevailed 6-2 & 6-3.

So that puts us on top of the ladder with 3 wins out of 3.
