The Baker Tilly Corporate Squash league’s third week was an entertaining evening of action, culminating in a reshuffle of the league table.
Marlene West’s S & M Mixed Breed jumped from ninth to equal fourth with a destructive victory over KPMG Racketeers, gaining maximum points and only dropping a single game in the tie.
The most spectacular match of the night was between KPMG Kobras’s Samantha Hennings and Digicel’s Jody Jervis.
Hennings claimed first blood, but then eased up, and Jervis capitalized with his furious hitting winning the second and third games.
The fourth game was a return to form by Hennings as she moved Jervis around the court, more than he would have liked.
He started crumbling, and she took that game to level the score at two apiece.
The fifth game was a tense battle trading point for point up to 8-all. Serving at 9-8 in the final game, Hennings was able to keep her focus, whilst Jervis was a little shaken and tired and she took the following point to give her match ball.
This was converted following another long rally with both players covering every inch of the court eventually leading to the ball being just out of reach of Jervis. This match secured the win for KPMG Kobras over the top of the league Digicel Diehards.
