Tonight we saw Ormeau 2B take on Glenburn B at home in Division 2 of the Belfast and District Table Tennis League. The match ended with a score line of Ormeau 2B (2) and Glenburn B (8). The format for the match was a 3 Vs 4 player format.
Neil Magrath reporting on the match said “The first match of the season saw Ormeau 2B take on Glenburn B giving both teams the opportunity to get rid of any rustiness from the summer break. The start saw the match swing back and forth with Erin, making a welcome return to Glenburn colours after finishing Uni, edging a very close first match against Matt after 5 tight sets. On the other table, Andy L (Glenburn) lost to Andy (Ormeau) in 4 very tight sets. Next up for Glenburn were the two Lucys, with Lucy C continuing her fine form from last season with a 3-0 win, however Lucy J lost yet another 5 set match with Andy performing miracles in the 5th set to grab a win from the jaws of defeat leaving the overall match at 2-2. From here on however Glenburn took control with Andy L winning another 5 set thriller and Erin and Lucy C clicking through the gears to take 3-0 wins. Lucy J then showed great maturity, putting the disappointment of her 5 set loss behind her, to win 3-1 in very impressive style. Erin closed out the singles with a tight 3-1 win over Andy to maintain her unbeaten singles record. Erin and Andy were very fast out of the traps in the doubles against Matt and Andy only dropping a single point in the first two sets before edging the 3rd 12-10 to take the overall score to 8-2 to Glenburn. The match was played in a very friendly atmosphere and great spirit. All the best to both teams for the rest of the season, and especially the 3 Glenburn girls as they head off to the Womens British League at the weekend.”
