Congratulations to the 5 members of the team who beat Harrogate on Thursday night to reach the finals of the North Yorkshire League B Cup Final !! The match saw the scores ebb and flow for Owen at 5 and Mark at 4 where both matches sat at 2 games games all, going into the final set all square! Owen’s opponent seemed to find something extra in the last game and took the match 3:2, Mark however, took an early lead in the final game and all looked good until his opponent, who possessed great racket skills on his short game, clawed his way back to claim the game; 2:0 to Harrogate with 3 games left to play! Jeff playing at 3, found his opponent unable to cope with his short game and took the next rubber 3:0 to leave the match more balanced at 2:1 in Harrogate’s favour. Dave at 4 started slowly against a tricky opponent going 2 games to love down! Meanwhile on the other court, Steve playing at 1, playing a very accomplished opponent, won a close first game but then lost the second, so all still to play for. Dave played the next 2 games more in the fashion that we are used to and brought the rubber back to 2 all! Steve’s game however remained in the balance also ending at 2 all so both rubbers resting on the final set! After some good squash from Dave who won the final game, the match was all square at 2 all, all resting on Steve going into his final game! However, Steve played a match winning last game to take the rubber and the match 3:2 !! So, well done guys, lets hope the final delivers a similar amount of excitement and the same result! :) Here are the scores:

1. Steve Lacy v Johnathan Smith 9-7, 2-9, 9-4, 4-9, 9-4
2. Dave McCabe v Andy McMillan 0-9, 5-9, 9-5, 9-1, 9-0
3. Jeff Watson v Peter Bottomley 9-2, 9-2, 9-1
4. Mark Porter v Richard Finney 9-10, 8-10, 9-5, 9-3, 8-10
