Third consecutive 5-0 for us, moves us up to 2nd in table, only 2 points off 1st place.
My match was quite good, and I managed to come from 50 down in deciding frame (again!! becoming a bit of a habit this season!), to sneak a 2-1 win on the pink. Both of us played well, he hit a couple of 40's & I had a couple of 30's, but the safety & general match play was also very good.
Bad week for us this week. We had to play the other team from our club. Always a good night against them, with the 2 tables playing side by side so you can see how your away players are getting on also. Plus, were all good mates, so adds to the rivalry as we both want the bragging rights of the club. We mangaged to beat them both times last season, but they got their revenge this week with a 4-1 win.
All were tight matches that could have gone either way, but they snuck them. The one that hurt though was my brothers match. He was 1-0 up & had a chance for a 2-0 with a mid-range pink. This would of given us a 3-2 win overall. As it was, he rattled the pink & left it in the jaws for his opponent to tap in, & with the black hanging over the bag 1-1 was a formality. The guy then went on to take the decider (giving them the 4-1).
I didn't play this week. I've still not earned my place back in the team after my loss a month ago! I've only played the past 2 weeks because my teamate has been on holiday. He's now home, & claimed his place back
On the individual front, I've got my next round match on Monday night. It's a good player I'm up against, but I'm feeling confident & am going to predict a 3-1 victory (hope this doesn't come back to bite me in the ass! Lol)
