Saturday, June the 30th duly arrived to herald the arrival of both Muscliffe Teams in preparation for games to be played with a view to saving travelling and organisational hiccups. Also the weather was kind and the setting was prepared for an enjoyable encounter.

The situation that existed was that Muscliffe Raiders were top of the league, having not lost a game, and Muscliffe Musketeers were bottom having not won a game. Both Portchester teams were mid table.

The morning started with Pumas playing Musketeers and Penguins playing Raiders.

Penguins had already played both teams away at Muscliffe and in the process had lost 5 – 0 to Raiders so prospects were not good! However it soon became apparent that today was going to be different with our terrain obviously not to the visitors liking. Amazingly penguins stormed into a 3 – 1 lead and then finished by also winning the last game. A great result of 4 – 1, the first team to beat Raiders this season.

Then to make it a really good morning the Pumas also won 4 – 1 against the Musketeers.

Play commenced again after lunch, this time with the Pumas playing Raiders and Penguins playing Musketeers, who they had beaten 4 – 1 away.

The game between Pumas and Raiders got off to a good start with the Triples being shared so the game could go anyway and was dependant on the pairs. To every ones delight all three Pairs were won and once again Raiders were defeated 4 – 1. This meant that both Portchester teams had won against a previously undefeated team which means that they are no longer running away with the league!

Finally, what could the Penguins do in the remaining game, especially as they had already beaten them at Bournemouth!! Recipe for disaster!!

Well things were going fine until the last game which unfortunately was lost 11 – 13.

Still overall 3 Wins out of 4 was pretty good considering the opposition.

Finally, credit must go to our 3 fledgling League Players. Mavis, Allison and Sam who achieved excellent results throughout the day.

One to look forward to now is the next game. Pumas vs Penguins. 26th. July.

There’s a Game for the Diary.
