Idéfix 1 returns with two points to Groningen
Today it was the debute for Idéfix 1 to play in the highest league of the North division. The opponent was Assen 2, in our eyes, the only contestant to win the title. Meaning every single point was a win for Idéfix. All opponents had already experience to play National third division so the under(idéfix)dog position was clearly for Idéfix.
Idéfix has a width selection of players and selected Arne Hommes, Eelke Cramer en Maartje Veenhoven to play against Ard-Jan Leeferink, Erik Mulder and Heleen Mulderij-Roewen.
Debutant of Idéfix Maartje started to play Ard-Jan, she lost 3-1 but played well. Next it was the turn for coach Eelke to play against Heleen. Eelke started very well and could equalize the score with a 3-1 victory. Next up was Arne to play Erik. Arne could not make it Erik difficult and lost with 3-0.
The double was a very close call with Eelke/Maartje for Idéfix against Ard-Jan/Heleen from Assen, both doubles had a deadly left/right combination. To bad Idéfix lost the double with 11-8 in the fifth game.
But the defeat in the double did not let Maartje giving up already, she was on fire against Heleen and won her first match at this level with 3-1. So after 5 matches it was still anybodys game only 3-2 behind.
But Assen started to play better and better….
In the following order Arne lost to Ard-Jan (3-0), Eelke lost to Erik (3-1), Arne lost to Heleen (3-0), Maartje lost to Erik (3-0) and Eelke lost to Ard-Jan (3-0).
But with two points taken home to Groningen the team was satisfied and is looking forward to play a homematch next week against Argus 1 from Harkstede.
Cheers to the freakin weekend
