Finch edges out Blair in thriller

Round 5 of the TeleCayman Squash
Business League was played on Thursday at South Sound Squash Club. 

In A Grade there was a dramatic
battle between Caribbean Champs and BDO. Jody Jervis had a comfortable victory
over Graham Thiessen, leaving Myron Blair the task of taking a game off David
Finch.

Both Blair and Finch are part of
the current Cayman national squad for the 2010 Caribbean Games, so a close
match was expected.

Finch took the first game, but Blair
won the second, ensuring his team won overall. As expected the match was very
high quality, with Finch eventually winning 11-6 in the fifth.

Samson & McGrath brought out
their power women’s team with Marlene West and Jackie Ridgeway wreaking havoc
on an unsuspecting Maples who did well under the circumstances.

Aon1 had a good match against
reigning champions Alphasoft, but eventually lost in straight games.

In B grade Charlie’s Angels had
their farewell match for Matt Taber who is leaving Cayman on Saturday, with
most of the team members turning up to support/heckle.

Mike Nelson led the team out with a
great match against Jackie, doing well to take a game. Taber then had the tough
task of having to beat Chris Mann while limiting his points. Taber was able to
win, but the team ended up losing on a count back by two measly points. Taber
will be missed at SSSC and we wish him all the best.

Cayman Prep continued to bring in
members of the national junior team in the hope that Brendan Touhey can win a
trophy. The strategy nearly backfired with Krys/EFG’s Simon Cawdery upsetting
Kristina Myren, but Touhey’s victory got Prep across the line.

Deloitte got their 2010 campaign
back on track with a solid victory over Advanced Chevy.

Cayman27 are currently on top of
the C ladder, with Digicel sitting at sixth, so on paper this was expected to
be Cayman27’s match.

It couldn’t have been much closer,
with Digicel causing a big upset for the night. Jason Harper and Brian Hurley
had a tough battle, including the third set going to 17-15, with Hurley
eventually winning in four.

Jeremy Elmas then had to beat
Digicel’s James McElvanna. Although he was able to come back from being down
2-0, he eventually lost a close fifth game.

Aon3 continue to improve and do
very well as the new team in C grade. They weren’t able to beat Derek’s Angels
but put up a great fight.

Aon2 continued their climb towards
the top of C grade with a victory over Cayman Airways.
