TT1213, Week 3

What with Andy ruled out after last week's ping-pong pain, the team picked itself tonight with Kennedy stepping up to that coveted Armstrong spot (by virtue of arriving first). Leaving Steve as Buzz to Ed's Michael Collins. Week 3, no pun intended.

Venue is the Britannia Dome and immediately we're 3-0 up since those Buzzards are a man down, alas. Pitting their rubbers against us are happy-go-lucky Ken, a former team-mate of Kennedy, and, er, Peter, laughing off every net and edge. In brief:

  • 2/2 for on-form Kennedy, beating Ken 11-9 in the tightest of deciders
  • 1/2 for Ed, edging his way past Peter in an abysmal game of chicken
  • 0/2 for Steve, who had his chances against Peter

Doubles on a plate for the Defiants too, handing us an unlikely 7-3 win. That score may look somewhat different in the return leg next year.
