Here's what happened: Home team captain calls away captain the afternoon of the upcoming night match and says he's going to have to forfeit 2 of the 4 courts to be played that night. Knowing they only have two courts to fill away team shows up with a modified lineup + 2 extra players that came to spectate. Away team captain is out of town, so he sends co-captain with instructions for the night. The two courts start their matches on schedule with both captain/co-captain's playing. Home team has two players show up late (past deadline) and say they want to play. The two extra away players say they will play them and count it as a league match. Away team wins the first 2 courts, and loses the late starting 3rd court. After match, home captain records scores for all 3 courts, and takes the forfeit for the 4th court. The away captain see the scores, and sees the loss of the 3rd court that he thought he won by forfeit. The results of this match place the away team in the final position of 2nd place in the league, instead of the first place they would have if they had not lost this 3rd court. The captain of the away team reprimanded his players and told them they had no authority to play their match as an official match. His co-captain said he was not aware of the 3rd match being played as an official match, and furthermore confirmed that they started late and past the deadline. The away captain called the home captain and told him that he didn't think the 3rd court should have counted, and that the scores needed to be corrected. The home captain did not give in. The away captain is now about to call the league chairman and argue his case. As captain of the away team, what would YOU do? What would you do to prevent this from happening in the future?
