TT0708, Week 24

Six players, four real, two virtual, five-enders, one to remember.

Nice to have a bit more space after the cramped conditions of Sidegate Lane earlier this week, and a cracking view from the stage. Mrs Worthington's attention should be drawn to the notice beneath our feet, reading:

Will members please keep their children off the stage at all times.
Thank you.

Awesome twosome of me and Andy (again) tonight. Brace of notable games:

  1. DC v. Andy -- first two ends to on-form DC who then went 6-0 up before, somehow, Andy found the mental strength to claw his way back and scrape the deuce; epic encounter went all the way to another deuce in the fifth & final end, our man ultimately winning 16-14: terrific game
  2. DC v. Ed -- first two ends to still on-form DC before, somehow, Ed dug deep to claw his way back and take it to a fifth; DC deservedly hung on to inflict a rare division 3 defeat on top-of-the-averages Ed: ouch, this one hurt

Fortunately the doubled-up doubles went our way. Played 22, won 22. But I'm still kicking myself about losing that game.
