On Thursday May 2nd, the Edsel Ford Thunderbirds took a long bus ride down to challenge the Gibraltar Carlson Marauders. This was a tense match, and probably the best the T-Birds have competed with a conference opponent since early in the season. Although some of the individual matches were excitingly close, in the end the Marauders seized the overall team victory.

1 EF Zaineb Al-Asady Grade 11 lost to GC Lauren Harris Gibraltar Grade 11 6-3 4-6 10-8
