Mariner badminton places third

January 17th, 2006

Malaspina Mariners Badminton got off to a great start at the season opener in Vancouver this weekend. With a great team effort the young team finished 3 rd in overall points behind very strong and experienced teams from Douglas (1 st ) and Langara College (2 nd ).

Mike Clark had the 'match of the tournament' almost taking out the 3 rd seed, Phil Weier of Douglas College, in the second round of Mens Singles in a 7-15, 15-10, 12-15 narrow defeat which lasted almost 90 minutes and captivated the spectators.
