Uppingham 6 – 3 Welland Valley (Mixed)

With Welland Valley visiting Uppingham in the Mixed division, Uppingham had a chance to gain some revenge for the early season loss to the same opposition. This time around, with the team coming off the back of four good results, had a lot more confidence going into the evenings play. Despite this, none of the pairs had particularly inspiring nights, and a very bitty match ensued, with very short points and games dominated by errors from both sides. The recent form however, stood Uppingham in good stead, and all of the pairs came away with wins, resulting in a 6 – 3 victory. Pam and Mark picked up all three, Sian and Peter pickied up two (despite coming from 1 -11 in the third end against Welland Valleys’ 1st Pair to level at 20 – 20, only to lose 20 -22) and Jo and Matt picked up one, again unluckily missing out on a second win, by losing 22 – 24 in the third end against the number two pair. Well done all round, another win despite the lack of form on the night.
