The second set saw what looked like a re-enactment of the first set, as the relatively even contest continued.

The match soon drew the attention of spectators with some great rallies, although the Old Guns would win the second set at 25-15.

The match became more one-sided in the final set as Mueller proved an asset at front court and the Pancakes struggled to keep up.

It seemed as though each time the Pancakes came close to surpassing their opposition, the Old Guns were one step ahead and maintained their lead throughout the match.

The Old Guns eventually held on to take the final set 25-9, securing the straight-sets victory.
