Stu­dents tri­umph in close matches

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

THERE were two amaz­ing Dundee and Dis­trict Badminton As­so­ci­a­tion Hand­i­cap Cup semi-fi­nals, both go­ing to count­back.

Aber­tay Univer­sity tri­umphed over NCR and hold­ers Dundee Univer­sity de­feated No­mads.

Af­ter hav­ing won every league match over two sea­sons, No­mads 100% record has fi­nally been ended.

Har­ris shocked the cham­pi­ons rac­ing into a 3-0 lead.

No­mads won the fi­nal gents dou­bles to go into the mixed 3-1 down and a fur­ther win in game six gave them hope.

Two draws in the next two games put paid to that.

No­mads did at least main­tain their un­beaten record with a fine win in the fi­nal game by Andy Mid­dle­ton and Karen West­wa­ter earn­ing them a 3-3 draw.

Dundee Univer­sity (2) look like they are go­ing to be mak­ing a speedy re­turn to Divi­sion Two, though they put up a good fight be­fore los­ing to Rosean­gle 5-3.

Af­ter their heart­break­ing cup exit, NCR moved top of Divi­sion Two with a 4-3 win against Dundee Univer­sity (3).

Moni­fi­eth Grove had a chance to top the Divi­sion Three table and would have been con­fi­dent of do­ing so, hav­ing beaten St An­drews Univer­sity at home. It never looked likely, how­ever, as they lost heav­ily to a strong stu­dent side.
