After the first round they were already down by 26 points.

They then capitalised on the Defenders lack of cohesion in the second to take that game 21:16.
After the first round of the composite doubles the Heroes were well and truly up against it.
The Defenders added another 20 points to their tally.
It was in the second round of the composite doubles that the Heroes were able to regain some composure; they actually won this round by two points.

After it was over the Heroes pair had won a mere 12 points as opposed to the 42 that the Defenders took back to the score board.
