Bowdon beat Woking 4-3

Bowdon secured a come-from-behind win against Woking to seal a place in the final!

Trailing 1-2 at lunch, following a very close tussle in the doubles and strong performances from Woking's Bigg and Jones in their first round of singles, Bowdon came roaring back with wins for Moberly against Dawson and Mellor against Jones to give them a 3-2 lead. Woking therefore needed both the remaining singles matches to go their way to make their journey back down the M6 a happy one. When Good, at 5-5, peeled Bigg through hoop 11 in game 3 to allow Bigg first approach at hoop 12 (which he put in the jaws to seal the match), it looked as if they might just do it. Walters however had other ideas. A game down, she fought back with a couple of nice "in-offs" to level the match. Game 3 was a tight affair, with hoops traded throughout, however Walters was able to convert a 6-5 lead at hoop 12 to much acclaim from the 3 or so spectators.
