Ribera (blue) led off the game looking strong, but was short of the third wicket at the end of her first turn. Myers (red) quickly challenged Ribera, distracting her more-experienced opponents with disingenuous questions ("Does that give me an extra turn?" "Do I hit it with this end?"), while with skill that belied her claimed inexperience she thwacked ahead to an early lead that, though briefly challenged, was never lost. So went the first game, and then she did it again in the second. Coats (black) lagged inexplicably two to six wickets behind the leaders both time around. He was seen later in the day drowning his sorrows with several glasses of what he claimed was cranberry juice. A bitter pill, indeed.

GAME 2: 1ST: Myers (red); 2ND: Ribera (blue); 3RD: Coats (black) Game time: approx. 10 minutes
