With one match left to play against Corinthians, Mixed B is the Div 4 winner. The team has lost just one match this season and that was the result of a calculated risk when the club was trying to ensure that Mixed A remained in contention for promotion.
Anyway, well done Mixed B; the Mixed A against Mixed B matches in Div 3 Next year will be a big test of the selectors’ decisions!
It all came down to the last match, a lose meant no promotion, a win meaning promotion at the top of the table. And they won! 7.5 to 1.5
In the U16 Girls event at Stowmarket, Beth Scahill and Tilly Barnard played really well losing only to a strong pair from Meridians. Tilly’s varied attacking shots and Beth’s amazing defence mesmerised most of their opponents. They only just lost to the Meridians pair in a tightly fought match.
Woodbridge Juniors’ very own Grace Chester won the U12 Girls event at the Stowmarket Junior Tournament this morning. With a partner from YM, Grace’s accurate serving and aggressive badminton helped the pair to victory.
