Down to week 5 of the TeleCayman Team Squash League and without fail there were some great matches.
Sponsored teams for the fall TeleCayman Team Squash League include; Team Walkers, Team Island Heritage, Team NCB Group, Team Sothebys International Realty, Team KPMG and Team Marsh. Two teams made up of individual players, named after world top squash player is Team Nicol David, and Team Ramy Ashour.
Team NCB Group and Team Nicol David featured in top matches. Both of these matches were full of excitement and suspense resulting in tough five set matches.
The top match came from Matthew Wight of Team NCB Group and Jackie Geils representing Team Nicol David. The first game set the tone as it went into over-points with Wight taking the game 13/11 and then fairly quickly took the second game 11/5. Down two games to love, Geils found herself trying to fight back and did so by winning the next two games 11/5, 11/4. Taking it into the fifth and both players scrambling to stay with the other, Wight just squeaked it out with a 11/9 win.
The second best match for the night was also from the Team NCB Group, Steve Walsh (substitute) and Team Nicol David’s Carlo Artana. The other ironic factor was the scoring pattern was also very similar. Artana was up two games to zero and then lost the next two games leaving the match tied and heading toward a fifth and deciding set. Fortunately, for Team Nicol David, Artana had a few more tricks up his sleeve and took the fifth 11/6.
Another brilliant match was between Ricardo Bodington from Team Island Heritage and substituting from TeleCayman and representing Team Ramy Ashour, George Miricia. The scores of each game were very close, in fact the third game went into over-points, however Miricia took the match 3-1 with final games scores of 8/11, 13/11, 11/9, 11/9.
