TABLE TENNIS: BT Victory got off to a flying start against Spivs Specials in the Heacham League, winning the first three games.
But Specials hit back to win game four before Steve Hales and Mary-Ann Woodhouse had a win over the Specials Jim and Jeff Race.
Back came the Specials with a five-end win by Stephen Jackson and Jeff Race over Woodhouse and Andy King.
The Specials then added another point on the scorecard when the Races beat Hales and King.
So it was 4-3 to Victory with two games to play.
Game eight was another five-ender, which went to Victory when Woodhouse and King edged home against Jackson and Jim Race 11-9 in the fifth end.
Finally, Hales and Woodhouse got their third win of the match, beating Jackson and Jeff Race to confirm a 6-3 victory for their team.
There was a 9-0 win for Adrian’s Allstars over Sedgeford Savages but the score does not reflect the closeness of some of the games.
The Allstars trio of Jason Carter, Mick Minns and Mike Nobes were just a little bit too strong for Savages’ team of Sedgeford super subs John Marrow and Kerry Smith and super sub Eileen Needham.
Plenty of nets and edges and laughter made this a most enjoyable match.
Sedgeford Stars’ trio of Mike and Dan Witley and Paul Richardson were the home side against Hunnys Heroes, who consisted of Graham Keeley plus super subs Vaughan Parker and Mike Cooper.
However, although the score was 9-0 to the Heroes, there were some very close games.
The result keeps the Heroes in top spot but Adrian’s Allstars are breathing down their necks.
