Another showdown with a great side.
London were playing with a player short so were already going into the match 0-4 down. Devastating after what we had worked so hard for was just being given away.
The remaining players were determined however and fully committed to the team victory.
The London ladies started off well. Pulling out some great clearances and tactical play, we knew this Hampshire side wasn’t ready for us. We won the first set 7-4.
Having knew we caught them off guard we tried to push into the second set. Hampshire had a fight in them however and started securing a lot of their frames and with careful shot selection, the second set ended 11-11.
London Ladies again stuck together and made some noise, we knew we could take this match and were the better side. We push on into the third set and were determined to take a lead the third set saw us do just that with us taking a good lead of 18-15.
Melissa Cooke was noted throughout this match as securing frames and playing very level headed matches. From her shot selection to frame control she had everything which we needed. London knew what we needed to do in the final set and we did just that. Fantastic day, full of team banter, strength and high quality games. London ladies were back winning 25-19
