Michael B team played their socks off to win against  a very good St Ninians.

Kicking off the night was Michael's Richard Done and Lewis Cassidy comfortably winning first mens  21/14 21/9 then Cassidy went straight into first mixed with partner Jess Corlett winning the first game 21/16 then losing the second and third 15/21 16/21 against Jack Ralph-Holloway and Karen Wade. Next up was team captain Alan Brew and Edilmar Espinosa who won second men's in two straight games 21/8 21/10. Second womens went in favour of St Ninians Karen Wade and Pat Crease beating Ali Collister and Lindsay Hotchkiss 21/15 21/16.  Michael's Jo Moore and Jess corlett were also beaten at first womens. They won the first game 21/19 but lost the second and third games 14/21 17/21 against Laura Cowley and Sophie Wade..  After the level doubles and one mixed match completed it was a tense six all!  Fourth mixed was a tight battle with St Ninians Daniel Richardson and Pat Crease winning two very close games 25/23 21/19 against Brew and Hotchkiss. Espinosa and Collister for Michael dominated third mixed winning 21/9 21/6 making the last game of the night second mixed very finger biting! But the experience of Done and Moore paid off.  They won the first game 21/14 lost the second 16/21 but won the third 21/16 against Michael Corlett and Laura Cowley. Tough night but great games, cheers to all involved.  The last game of the season on 23rd March and it's all to play for! AB

With Selborne B already league champions, this match was all about  Vikings B battling to avoid relegation.  Tied at the bottom of the league with Castletown/Abbey B, Vikings B knew that they needed a similar result to the Castletown/Abbey B vs St Ninians B match to avoid relegation - so battle commenced.

 

The atmosphere was electric as Vikings took a narrow lead from the first tie as Neil Brew and Mark Falconer beat Paul Griffiths and Neil McMullen 21/11 16/21.  Selborne narrowed the gap in the next tie when Ben Watterson and Shibu Augustia beat David Buck and Alex Buck 21/13 16/21.  Vikings immediately struck back in the next tie when  Brew and Alex Buck took important points from  Griffiths and  Augustia 21/10 21/15 to give Vikings a lead of 19 points at the half way stage of the match. As the Vikings players concentrated hard and played harder, they were able to secure five of the remaining six games to win by 40 points and pick up three valuable league points.  This was a close match, played in great spirits by both sides throughout - a great match to play in.  As a strong St Ninians B side took a hard-fought win against Castletown/Abbey B, Vikings B completed their escape from relegation.
