U6600 2/26/08 The Incredibles I vs. Primo

(David Chu, Fernando Chang, Wei Chen, Joey Hu, Wilson Tsao, Jim Chai, Henry Sit)

The Incredibles' morale wasn't that great. They just lost their two previous contests. In their internal memo, Captain Chai wrote, after their losses, " We win as a team. We lose as a team. We fought and faltered. We're down but not done. The season is still young. We must raise the bar and fight hard. In a bloody war, it's blood for blood..."

In the first match, Wei was unstoppable. Joey had lots of troubles returning Wei's serves and Wei's smashes proved to be deadly! Joey lost the first game 4:11!

The second game did not get any better. Wei led most of the time but Joey did not give up. Somehow, Joey managed to tie the game at 9:9. Wei served. Wei smashed. Joey retreated. It did not look good to Joey. Joey barely lobbed the ball back. Just when everyone thought it was over, Wei uncharacteristically missed the smash! Someone up there must have answered the prayer. Joey won the game 11:9.

Wei was cool. He recouped right away and smashed his way to win the third game.

Not sure what Captain Chai told Joey during the break, Joey was like a shark that smelled the blood. He took control for the rest of the match and finished the fifth game with two splendid counter-smashes! Yep, counter-smashes.

Joey's remarkable performance brought his teammates alive again. (Six of them were there) The Incredibles won and snapped their losing streak at two. They looked dangerous again!
