G2 hosted Fort Matilda on Tuesday 22nd May. On paper this was a tougher challenge than their previous match and it proved that way.
Stevie & Big Willie played at 1 again and although making a decent start to go ahead in the first set they both knew they weren’t playing to the usual standard. A couple of decent, busy opponents wore them down and took all three sets 7-5 6-2 6-2.
This was a poor performance if truth be known and the troops will be looking to bounce back swiftly.
It could have been worse though we could have been shouting abuse and bullying our partner like one of our opponents was. What a very strange man. If that’s him winning I’d hate to see him when losing.
As Mhairi S so delicately put it earlier this week ‘ a 10 on the norighter scale’
Harrison and Jim were promoted to position 2 where they faced a couple of serve and volley practitioners who were intent on taking the man out at the net . This didn’t phase Jedi Jim and his young Padawan Harrison as they won the first two sets comfortably 6-1, 6-3. The third set was a completely different story as the Jedi masters were 2-5 down mainly due to Jim’s serve turning to the dark side. Harrison was like a rock throughout the entire match and managed to reignite Jim as they dug deep to win the third set 7-5.
Gary Glen was paired up with John Johnson at third couple as Max MacKay was unavailable. Gazza and JJ used their years of experience and 3rd court street cred to dispose of their lesser experienced opponents quick style and only lose 4 games in the entire match. Great times down in the darklands…….
The post match tea was a resounding success with Willie bouncing back from defeat to take the master chef prize this week with a devastatingly good use of a Mortons crispy roll.
6-3 win sets them up nicely for their first away game at Whitecraigs next week.
