Round 3 of the TeleCayman Squash
Business League was played last Thursday at South Sound Squash Club.
Reigning A champions Alphasoft
suffered a rare and close defeat. With a match-fit Marlene West back with
Samson & McGrath the team is the favourite to win for the season.
Their No.2 player Shaun Geils broke
his finger over the weekend, putting his squash career on hold for months. So
Samson put in a different team, using Jackie Ridgeway and Myron Blair.
Barrel and Myron went on first,
with Barrel playing some good squash and nearly winning the third game, but
eventually going down 3-0. This left Warren ‘Wazza’ Urquhart having to beat
Ridgeway 3-0 for the team to have a chance.
These two always have great
matches, and that night was easily the best, with Ridgeway finally able to take
a well earned game off Wazza. She lost in four, but her game helped Samson
& McGrath win 2-1.
Maples had a good match against
BDO, with Scott Macdonald able to take a game off David Finch, but Finch and
Glen Trenouth got their team across the line, both winning in four.
The last time Aon1 played the
Caribbean Champs Dan MacLean came back from being behind 10-2 in the fifth game
against Fernando Beckles to win the match.
They showed that they’re still very
evenly matched, this time Beckles winning 11-8 in the fifth. Nick Buckley had a
3-1 victory over Jody Jervis who wasn’t playing his best squash.
In B Grade Charlie’s Angels had a
tough encounter against Krys/EFG, but both Charlie and Greg R-P were able to
win in four, leaving Simon Cawdery and Simon Nock to re-evaluate how they’re going
to defend their 2009 title.
New comers Advanced
Chevy had a close battle with Cayman Physio. Cayman Physio’s David Bridgeman
squeezed a 11-9 victory over Sergio, and along with Lindsay’s 3-1 victory over
Natalie Lawson the team won through.
