The controversial 2nd day of team events

Dear readers

You should have seen my phone on Sat. There were tonnes of whatsapp messages.

The WA team beat SA 6/2 in a very hard fight.

That meant they had a chance of getting a medal again as SA had beaten Vic 2 in points just like Voc 2 won WA in points.

WA then went on to beat NSW 2 5/3 giving them the right to fight for a bronze medal.

The kicker was that when NSW 1 played against Vic 2, they won 6 matches. NSW 1 then forfeited 2 matches to Vic 2 in walkovers. That gave Vic 2 a 2 game lead against WA in the total game score.

At first WA thought they had won the chance for a medal fight but it was not to be. The referee deemed Vic 2 the winner against WA despite the howls of protest by all in WA and the WA team.

Vic 2 went on to beat the territories again in points.

How cruel it was for WA and the young players.

There was even shouts of protest that NSW 1 should be disqualified for throwing the last 2 matches to allow Vic 2 to win 2 matches.

Life can be tough. I hope the players pick themselves up and prove themselves in the individual events to put themselves up as the worthy winners.

In the team event as there are only 7 teams, WA came in 5th and did not have to play on Sun. Maybe its a blessing in disguise so they can have a rest. I will try an cover the individual events tomorrow,

I am sure WA and the players parents are very proud of what the young players did for WA.
