The first set saw the matches’ spilt fairly evenly. Losing out to win the set just by 6/5. First impressions after our first set was that this was not the same Sussex side we had encountered last season. Some great additions to their team meant the pressure was on and Sussex were certainly hungry for it to beat last year’s region winners. The next set saw a lot of close blackball games with Sussex taking the edge in most of those winning 7/4.
The pressure was on London ladies who were falling slightly behind this strong Sussex side, and although we battled hard over the next two sets we could only gain the 4 wins in each. The girls battled hard to the end trying to secure as many frames as possible.
The London ladies came away disappointed but with a fire in their belly to practice and come back stronger. Our player of the match by no doubt was Angela Hobbs. Coming up against some great players, holding her nerve and playing each match with team shots and securing frames. Winning 2/4 with some unlucky defeats but never giving up at all and bringing the noise and support to everyone’s games made her the clear choice.
