And so it begins again….
A brisk trip up the M1 to the Concord Sports Centre in Sheffield, with a team consisting of:
Ayush, Luke, Owen, Lewis, Eve, Sophie, Emily & Emma
for the 1st Leg of the North Midway U12’s.
Having been drawn against Yorks 1, Derbys & Staffs in the first round with top 2 to qualify for the seeded positions, we knew we were in for some exciting games….
And it did not disappoint.
Winning this match 8-2, only narrowly missing out on a clean sweep with 2 close losses in the girls singles.
We knew this would be a tough match, and the games did not disappoint, with a number of them going down to the wire we eventually came out on top 8-2.
The team were now in full flow, partnership were now beginning to be established and professionally came out 10-0 winners!
So, that meant ourselves & Yorks 1 through, along with Lancs & Warks from the other group to now determine seedings.
So first up, we were up against Lancs….
With numerous long rallies and games that were extremely close, we eventually succeeded triumphant 7-3.
That left Warks.
With a nail biting start coming back from 2 games down and an epic singles game from Sophie, that had everyone on the edge of their seats.The team knuckled down, and again this match could have gone either way. ‘Team Leics’ came out eventually on top, securing a win 7-3.
So ‘Team Leics u12’s ‘ go into the next leg in March as top seeds, with a lot to live up to…..No Pressure!
