KINGPINS TOPPLE BANDITS
 
A hot Dave Allison was the bedrock for a Kingpins win against Bandits tonight. Without dropping a singles set all night Dave powered through Dave Buckley, James Tapp and Captain Mike Wilkins.
Ably supported by Mark Purcell and a welcome return for Julian Adams, Kingpins quickly leapt into a 3-0 lead.
 
Mike and James managed to peg them back  in the doubles against Dave and Mark in a topsy turvy 5 setter, before 4 points were shared without a set being dropped, the aforementioned Mr Allison taking 2 for Kingpins with Mike beating Mark and James beating Julian to make the score 5-3.
 
Julian took the first set against Dave Buckley, and stormed into a 7-0 lead in the second set with hitting akin to years playing with Dave Wackrill and Sarah Hudson. He never looked back, making it 5, 3 setters, in a row and securing the win for Kingpins.
 
Mark and James finished the match, having both been on the end of a 3-0 loss earlier in the match, Mark took the first easily, with James losing in deuce in the second the pressure was on, and Mark took the point in the fourth.
 
Final Score 7-3
 
Player of the match, Dave Allison.
