Close encounter with Bracknell Mixed 1

Crows 1st Mixed team travelled to Bracknell for their second match of the season to play their 1st team who currently head Division 2.  Matt Paxton & Lorraine Fowler were fairly comprehensively beaten in the first round 6-2 6-2 by Gavin Burrows & Amanda Cook but they redeemed themselves in the second round with a 4-6 6-2 1-0 win against Andrew Speight & Lesley Walton.  Mark Callagham & Jenny Sheppard were unlucky not to have recorded a similar score against Speight & Walton in the first round having fought back from losing the first set 6-2 to win the second 7-5 but then losing the tie-break.  Callaghan & Sheppard also had a close match against Burrows & Cook losing 7-6 6-4.  So the team ended up with nothing despite pushing the Division leaders hard in three of the four rubbers.
