IIIrd Team Continue Division 6 Struggle

Cambs IIIrds travelled away to Northants IInds with hope of overturning their defeat a few weeks before. Kaylan Sutton-Ziaian had a long battle eventually loosing 17-21, 21-16, 21-14. Aiden Foo making his first senior start had a nervy first end but found form in the second. Sadly with a net cord here and a line shot there he lost 21-13, 22-20. In the ladies Emma Brewster lost against a good Northants lady 21-6, 21-16. Stacey Knoop had a narrow defeat in the first but the second slipped away, 23-21, 21-14.

The doubles was next and in need of a first win, Will Hodgkinson and Kaylan led the way with a 16-21, 16- 21 win. Kaylan was growing in confidence with a solid defence and tight serve. Damien Dugmore and Aiden took it all the way. There were some great moments with an increased tactical awareness. Sadly it ended 19-21, 22-20, 21-15. Will and Kaylan took the next again with some great skill and nerve from Kaylan. Damien and Aiden built on their display to win 19-21, 19-21 victory. Damien looked very good and Aiden was mixing the shots well.

The ladies was important, with points still possible. Stacey and Emma took it to three, loosing 20-22, 21-9, 21-14. Holly Gayle and Jacquie Dennis showed spells of good working, but the more experienced Northants pair featuring last year's Cambs star Jess James won 21-15, 21-16. The second games were not as close with both pairs going down in straight sets.

Mixed next, with Kaylan and Stacy up first but loosing 21-18, 21-19 in a close game. Will and Jacquie were next, they had an odd game, starting quickly but not able to take control loosing 7-21, 21-14, 21-14. Last game was the two lefties. Playing well together they won 21-16, 19-21, 16-21.

Final score: Northants 11, Cambs 4.

Captain's man of the match Kaylan Sutton-Ziaian.
