The defending champions start the 5th Winter league with a win as they look to make it 5 titles out of 5 years.
Annan Seaforth were the opponents this week as both fixtures from last week were snowed off. The first match saw the tightest of matches as Paul Boardman edged past Mark Sindall (Annan) with a 6-4, 7-6 victory. In the second match Stevie Whites showed all his experience as he eased past Gareth Jones (Annan) 6-, 6-1 before the Dalbeattie duo wrapped up the match with a 6-1, 6-0 doubles win.
In the other match Dumfries travelled through to Kirkcudbright hoping to reverse last years 2-1 loss. In the singles we had a match victory for each team as Ian Cain overcame Martin Wilson (Dumfries) by 6-2, 6-3 whilst Graeme Cross (Dumfries) leveled the match by beating Mike Buckmaster 6-2, 6-2. The deciding rubber started well for the Kirkcudbright duo as they took the first set 6-3 before Dumfries leveled by taking the 2nd by the same score. Down to the tie-break which Dumfries edged with a 10-7 narrowest of wins to claim the match 2-1 and put them 2nd in the league behind Dalbeattie.
Next week sees Dumfries host Annan whilst Dalbeattie head down to Kirkcudbright.
