Mars 4 – 5 Uppingham (Mixed)

With a win against Melton still in their minds, the Mixed team travelled to Mars looking for another win against the only team to have beaten Pearl in three years. A really tough night ensued. With two of the three ladies feeling under the weather, it was always going to be a hard evening. Thankfully, evertone turned in fine performances and the team came away with a great 5 – 4 win. Special mention must go to Matt and Jo, who picked up the crucial win against the Mars second pair on their first match point, winning the deciding end 26 – 24 having faced 5 match points along the way, and with Jo feeling decidedly the worse for wear. Congratulations to everyone, a terrific win.
