Ist Team Pipped at the Post

The Cambridgeshire 1st team played the season decider against local rivals Northamptonshire 1st team in division 2 of the Victor Inter County Championship.  The match was a winner takes all, whereby whichever team won the match, wins the league and gain promotion into Division 1.

The match stated well with but Olga Bryant and Kat Young winning their ladies singles in two straight games, but the matches were closer in the mens doubles with both Sunny Lol and Rob Pace winning their 1st ends, but then losing the 2nd and 3rd ends leaving the match all square after the singles.

In the mens doubles, Cambridgeshire have not performed well during the season, and this carried into this match, with both pairing of Nick Pratt/Sam Scharf and Sunny Lol/James Wilson losing all their matches.  However, the ladies double have pulled the county through many a match, and once again the pairing of Olga Bryant/Kat Young won both their matches, and Faye Gregory/Amanda Godfrey winning one of theirs.

This gave Northamptonshire a 7 games to 5 lead going into the mixed.  They soon wrapped up the match and league title, with Cambridgeshire 2nd pairing of Rob Pace/Kat Young losing in two straight games.  Althought, nothing to play for except pride, 3rd Pairing of Nick Pratt/Faye Gregory won their match in 3 ends, but 1st pairing of Olga Bryant/Sam Scharf lost their match in 2.

This gave Northamptonshire a 9 games to 6 win.  Althought disappointed, the county team gained promotion into this division last season, and were looking to avoid relegation, but after winning their first 6 matches found themselves pushing for promotion once again.
