Men’s Leagues


League 3 


Citywing Vikings B 231 Designer Glass Castletown/Abbey B 217


Newly promoted Vikings B played host to Castletown/Abbey B in this opening fixture in Mens League 3.  The opening tie saw Neil Brew amd Mark Falconer from Vikings build a lead by beating Nick Thornley & Graham Coffey of Castletown/Abbey 21/13 21/11.  The following tie saw Castletown/Abbey hit back when Pete Hadfield and Stu Lyon narrowly beat Vikings father amd son team of David and Alex Buck 21/20 21/17.  The next tie also went Castletown/Abbey's way leaving the half-time score 113-104 in  Vikings favour. Vikings then managed a small win in the fourth tie, but in the fifth tie an injury to Vikings Mark Falconer saw Castletown/Abbey turn around a first game defeat to chalk up a narrow win.  The match was finely poised going into the final tie, with Vikings holding on to a small advantage.  Injury again struck Vikings, with Neil Brew playing out the tie from the net position.  This tie narrowly went Vikings way as David Buck and Brew beat Castletown/Abbey's Hadfield and Thornley 21/19 21/20. A close match where Vikings just managed to hold on to their early lead.  It could be a long season ahead for Vikings, who will hope to see Brew and Falconer return to action soon.  [MF]
