Hermann’s Hermits vs. In Your Grille

(B)

Doug Shear/ Max Essery vs Steve DeVoe/ Keith Mayes

Doug and Max sought inspiration from the fake moustaches they decided to wear for their match. They played nicely together despite looking like a couple of banditos. They got off to an early lead in the match.  Steve and Keith fought back and started to looking like the stronger pair. They couldn’t quite win the crucial games though.

Hermann’s Hermits win 8/5

(A)

Doug Shear/ Max Essery vs Steve DeVoe/Jeremy Wintersteen

Jeremy & Steve had a tough handicap to give to the banditos, especially as they were full of confidence from winning their first match. They got off to a flying start. They were up 5/0 before Steve and Jeremy started to find their way in to the match. Doug was playing clever shots in to the corner at Steve, avoiding Jeremy. Max managed to dig back 3 difficult shots hit by Jeremy, with the 3rd dig back going in to the Grille.

Hermann’s Hermits win 10/6

(C)

Ellen Hermann/ Tom Ewart vs Mary Stevens/Shirley Freitag

Ellen & Tom teamed up brilliantly well. Tom serves were a handful to deal with and Ellen was as steady as a rock. This made it very difficult for Shirley & Mary. Shirley & Mary did play some good tennis but not enough to make this match close unfortunately.

Hermann’s Hermits win 10/2

Player of the night – Doug Shear, played well & won both the matches he played.

Shot of the night Max Essery, for a getting a difficult ball back and putting it in the grille to win the game.
