Top Three Place Secured with ‘Stuffy’ Win over Mets – again!
The men travelled west for a difficult game against Glasgow Mets who are fighting for league survival and occupying bottom spot in the table. The opening exchanges showed little sign of nerves from the home side as the Dundee side gifted 8 points from 12 with untidy play. The Mets service and enthusiasm weighed heavy on the Dundee defence and with another flurry of errors the set was on by Mets 25/17. Despite a change in line-up with Dave Bonnar replacing Kevin Chisholm, it was still Mets who were ahead inset 2. Bonnar scored 2 points and the tide turned in Dundee’s favour with Mike Coward and Oz Dowie doing the damage to score a run of points to level the match winning 25/19. With confidence and momentum Dundee made quick work of the third set winning 25/13 through scores from Coward (5), Bonnar (6) and Rad Marinov (4).
The Mets spirit was broken and with the help of 8 points in errors they accumulated 19 points but Dundee’s control gave them the set 25/19 for a 3/1 win guaranteeing a top 3 finish and a top play-off place.
