South Alicante League, Monday 17th October, Enterprise Div. Klingons were away v Emerald Isle Titans. We had a real battle, and Keith’s team just missed out by 1 shot, but unfortunately we could only “kling-on” to 2points-10, shots 80-95.

On Thursday 20th we played the first round of the PREMIER 20 KNOCKOUT COMPETITION, home & away v Vistabella. We always expect a close match against VB, especially with this mixed format; which is why it’s so challenging & frustrating. All the matches were hard fought and even the losing teams kept going, to try and keep the shot difference close and that certainly worked!.

However we weren’t expecting a result as close as this!!

Home match 72 shots SL   71 shots VB  4 points each.

Away match 65 shots SL   66 shots VB  4 points each.

Total          137 shots SL  137 shots VB  8 points each.

Under the Rules; if everything is tied, it goes down to the result of the singles & we won BOTH Singles so we go through to the next round v San Miguel.

San Luis winners at HOME: Singles Kath Reid 21-14, Triples Giuseppe Galelli, Tricia & Pat Reilly

20-15. AWAY: Singles Bill Webb 21-4, Pairs June & Keith Jones 21-12.

The Tigers were away v Vistabella Conquistadors in a real nip & tuck match, fighting to the end for a good result; 8points-4, 96 shots-69.
