The A team also played its first online match on BBO on 5th November, losing to a strong Menagerie B team by 13.7 - 6.3.
The A-Team played its second match in the Wessex League against Bicester on Friday evening, 20th November, or should I say Friday night as it proved to be a very long drawn out affair, with 1 pair particularly slow.
Despite leading by 17 at half time we lost the second half and ended up losing the match 81-87. The earlier lead was helped by Krys and Sandra being the only ones to find a slam.
Second half was really competitive and we would have won by 5 if I had not managed to misclick and leave Ruth, who opened in two clubs, in that contract!! Very disappointing as the opposition made five spades. As Ruth managed to make 5 clubs in a 4-2 fit she would have not had much difficulty in making at least 5 spades, the planned contract in a 7 2 fit!
Many thanks to
Sandra and Krys
Steph and Steven
Alison and Robert
Ruth and Howard
Thanks also to Roger and Ann for setting everything up.
