Round 1 of the Inter Schools Lexden Cup competition got off to a great start with Mersea A team taking the lead and Mersea B team in 3rd just 2 points behind second place.

Team A

Henry (5)
Calum (5)
Amelie  (5)
Felicity (6)

Team B

Stanley  (5)
Matthew  (6)
Charlotte (6)
Ruby (5)

Mersea A team played Stanway A and Fordham taking maximum points of 44 in both sections.
Mersea B played Lanenghoe and Copford taking 38 and 34 points respectively beating both teams.
The only lost game from Mersea was when Mersea A had to compete against Mersea B team (so one of us had to lose and one win!). Mersea A took this, but without a clean sweep as Ruby  on Team B confidently won her Girl 2 match.

Henry, Calum, Amelie and Ruby won all of their matches played on day one.
Three schools only played 2 matches at the first tournament while all others played 3.
