Isle of Wight Wizards 21 >> Trojan Tigers 3

The Wight Wizards travelled to the Trojan Tigers to play the top of the table clash on Tuesday night hoping to close the gap on the league leaders.

The number 3 string match up saw Paul take on Martin Buchan, both players currently unbeaten this season. In an extremely tight affair it was the Trojans player who had the edge and came from behind to clinch a 2-1 victory.

The 2nd string match up saw Olly come up against Trojans’ Nick Jenkins. A superb match ensued with some quality Racketball from both players. Olly’s fitness prevailed and he ran out a 3-0 winner

Playing at number 1 string were the Callums! The Wizards’ Callum Arnott taking on the number 1 string for the Tigers’ Callum Greasley. Arnott seemed to be in beast mode and looked in fine form finding some perfect length and a few trademark corkscrews for good measure. Greasley put up a valliant effort but it was the visiting Callum that took the victory 3-0

The doubles matches all went the way of the visitors with Callum and Olly beating Callum and Nick 3-0, Olly and Paul edging a close contest against Nick and Martin 2-1 and finally Callum and Paul winning their final doubles match 3-0 against Callum and Martin.

Final score 21-3 to the Wizards.

A superb vegetarian wrap and nachos was on the menu for food whilst the players rushed down a speedy pint before the quick drive back to catch the 10pm boat back to the South Island! Many thanks to Callum, Nick and Martin for the great match and excellent hospitality as usual!
