Handcross Lets League Match Slip



The Handcross NDL team opened their 2016 campaign with a 7-2 defeat away to Bedouins.

The pairings of Brenda/John, Dave/Dave and Mike/Bill learnt the lesson of not closing games from a winning position, none more so than Mike/Bill losing from a 10-1 lead.  Dick and Tony came from behind in all 3 matches to take the points.

We were obviously disappointed with the result but as team captain I am happy that we gave it a good shot and have learnt from the experience.   One game ran out of time with us losing 10-9, the overall points score was 106 to 91.

 The piste was new to us, there is less grit than at home and varying undulations acting differently over the Bedouins preferred longer coshes.
