Uphill got off to their usual slow start with only Zion winning his singles, putting St Ursulas 3-1 up after the singles.

Lewis and Zion battled through the doubles to win, before the girls lost, leaving St Ursulas 4-2 up.

In the mixed, Lewis and Alana won in three, followed up by Zion and Emily winning in two. With the match tied at four-each, Uphill knew a draw would not be enough.

Lewis and Emily were superb winning 8-15, 15-13, 15-10, before Zion and Alana combined to finish the job to complete a fantastic comeback win 6-4.

The real stars were Alana and Emily mixing it in league action for the first time against boys and picking up two crucial wins each.
