Archers lost the first one and won the second. Both teams won one each of the next two, sending the game into a 5 set match. Both of the ladies’ teams were vying for the top spot and Antwerp was able to secure a strong lead but then Hicksville was drawing back closer to the Archers as the points neared 15. Both sides were strong on this game but there really were too many errors. It was good for the Lady Archers to pull back to the winning side of the bracket before tournaments began.
