First defeat for Idefix 2
On Thursday, Idefix drove through the rain to play an away match in Groningen. Oliemolen 1, represented by Frans, Rene and Pieter, was the host at the probably most funny match location of the province (a small primary school). For Idefix 2 this turned out to be the only funny part of the evening, resulting in a tough 2:8 loss against the far lower ranked opponent.
Koichi, Jacco and Ubbi were supported by Rebecca and Kotaro, but unfortunately that didn’t help at all. A mix of underestimating the opponents, the unconventional, back-hand orientated style of all 3 Oliemolen players and the fact that none of the Idefix players performed on ‘normal’ level, lead to 8 victories for the hard-fighting hosts. In only 2 close 5-setters Koichi (against Pieter) and Ubbi (against Rene) were able to score for Idefix 2.
The team now has one week without a match before facing the best teams of the league, Argus 3.
