Mixed B Lose to Deddington

Brackley Town Mixed ‘B’ had their winning start to the season ended by a strong Deddington B side. The match was very close and could have gone either way, with Brackley winning the Men’s rubbers, but the ladies narrowly losing theirs meaning the game was all square going into the mixed Matches. All the mixed rubbers were played at the same time, Tom and Kaye managed to take their rubber 2-0, putting Brackley slightly in the lead. Connor and Maire battle brilliantly to take theirs to 3 games, but ultimately lost the final game meaning the match was all square with the last Rubber still being played. Henry and Jess took the 1st game of the rubber, and came within 1 point of winning the 2nd rubber to take the match, but slipped from 20-19 to end up losing 22-20, which took the rubber and the match all down to the last game. During a rally early on in the 3rd and final game, with Brackley Leading 3-2, Henry injured his leg, which meant he had to withdraw from the game. This meant that Deddington took the win by one rubber with the games 11-11 across the match.

Final Result:  Brackley Town Mixed ‘B’ 4 – Deddington Mixed ‘B’ 5
