Southsea made the hour trip to Worthing Warriors on Monday 20th August.
Triples were Peter/Trevor/Dawn and Andy/Rod/Ray. Things started off well, Peter’s team racing into an 8-2 lead and Andy’s team quickly winning by 13-1. Worthing then started a fightback causing the first triple to become a drawn out ‘war of attrition’. They clawed all the way back to 8-8 before a Southsea resurgence saw the match close out 13-8 to Southsea.
2-0 after the triples, but at least one doubles win required for the bonus point.
Doubles were Trevor/Ray, Andy/Rod, and Peter/Colin. Andy and Rod won to a fanny, and with Trevor and Ray also quickly winning 13-3 the match was sealed. All games count for points in 6-aside though so could Peter/Colin gain an extra important point. The game was hard fought and took an absolute age, but eventually was won to a convincing score of 13-4.
A season first 5-0 victory, 6 important points giving Southsea a slight gap at the top of the league. If the team can hold it together over the next 3 matches there is every chance of Southsea finishing top of Div 3(East), though there are still three other teams (Cranleigh/Handcross/Worthing Simpsons) in contention if results go their way.
