In Division 3 the 4th Team of Phil Daly, Kris Laszkiewicz and Neil Hayes faced a home tie against North Merchiston 3. Having picked up 1 point from their first two matches, the home team knew that they desperately needed a win against North Merchiston 3 to keep them in touch with those teams in the top half of the Division. Kris was the player of the night as he won all 3 of his singles matches and with Phil winning 2 the match came down to the final match of the night (played out of sequence) - the doubles! Kris and Phil joined forces against Anna Porsch and Slaw Bess for Merchiston. After an easy win in the first end, 11-4 Kris and Phil looked in control. However, the North Merchiston duo then won the next two ends before the momentum swung again in the fourth end with an 11-5 win for the home team. In a tight deciding end, Kris and Phil held their nerve for an 11-9 win to give the home team their first win of the season.
