Walkers girls bashed Sheriffs

In the Security Center squash league round 7, some tension was created at the top of the table with KPMG 2 surging into equal pole position alongside DMS.

Aon Giant Killers and TSCL Sheriffs now hold the third spot.

The highlight of the evening at the South Sound Squash Club last week was the destruction of an all-male team, TSCL Sheriffs, by an all-female team, Walkers Warriors by 4 matches to 1. The D players, who went on first, is a relative newcomer to squash. Shamar Ennis, who’s normally seen on a tennis court, had a right battle with the TSCL Sheriffs’ Sean Vasquez.

Vasquez took the first game 11/5, but Ennis fought back to even the score in the second. The third swung in his favor, but Ennis battled back to gain the fourth game.

Ennis made a steady start and gained great momentum creating a four point lead in the deciding game.

Her competitive edge showed as she dominated the final few points running away with it 11/5. TSCL Sheriffs bounced back with the A players going on next. Mike Cansell dropped the first game to Alison Strobridge, but turned things around from then and won the next three games.

One match apiece and the Walkers Warriors C string, Roz Glanfield dominated TSCL Sheriffs Shaun Devine and destroyed him 3-0.

The Sheriffs’ Robert Woods was left to prevent team defeat against Walkers captain Chantelle Day who made a great start and claimed the first game.

Woods fought back gallantly, but narrowly lost the second. In the third game, Woods managed to up the pace and that proved to be too much for Day, losing the third. The fourth game was much the same as the third, but Woods struggled to sustain the pace and it went into a tie break situation and eventually Day claimed the games and match 12/10.
