Belfast and District Table Tennis Division 3 – Ormeau 3A (3) – Ballyclare A (7).
Tonight we saw Ormeau 3A take on Ballyclare A at home in Division 3 of the Belfast and District Table Tennis League. The match ended with a score line of Ormeau 3A (3) and Ballyclare A (7). The format for the match was a 3 Vs 3 player format. Wilbert Armstrong reporting on the match said “Last night was a tricky match between Ormeau 3As and Ballyclare at The Mount. The match started very promisingly for Ballyclare with the Away side taking the first 3 singles. Arvin then won a hard fought match with Mike to get Ormeau off the mark. Ballyclare increases their lead when Wilbert and Andy won the next 2 matches, meaning Ballyclare could not lose the contest. Arvin, the Ormeau star of the night easily beat Wilbert in 3 straight to win his second singles of the night, making it 5-2 to Ballyclare.
The next match was almost a shock win for Andy M v Andy D.
Andy M played very well and took the first 2 sets before Andy D fought back in an epic battle to take it 3-2. Mike then took the final singles to make it 7-2 to Ballyclare with just the doubles to come. Things looked promising for Ballyclare as they took the first set but dropped the second set 15-13. That was the catalyst that Ormeau needed to take the next 2 sets making the final match score 7-3 to Ballyclare.
As usual the score didn’t reflect the closeness of the matches, however, a very big thank you to Ormeau for making us feel welcome, and all the best for their remaining matches.”.
