Kobras suddenly look deadly

Both DMS and KPMG Cobras were on fire in the sixth round of the Baker Tilly Corporate Squash League, each claiming the maximum 13 points against their respective opponents. DMS overcame Baker Tilly and KPMG Kobras ousted The Directors in similar fashion.

S & M Mixed Breed jumped into joint pole position alongside KPMG Cobras, with a convincing win over the former top spot holders Sea Elements.

The only point claimed for Sea Elements was by their A player Alex Frazer against S & M’s Marlene West, both of whom are representing Cayman in the Central American and Caribbean Games in Mexico this week.

Round 7 of the Baker Tilly Corporate Squash league saw KPMG Kobras clash against their colleagues KPMG Racketeers.

It was a ruthless affair, with the Kobras having quicker reactions and ultimately overcoming the Racketeers to claim their second maximum points in a row of 13 and securing their lead by seven points ahead of S & M mixed Breed.

One of the notable performances of the evening was by Kali McLean, aged 14, at D position who overcame the athleticism of Eddie Noyers in an extremely close match, winning 3 games to 1.

Baker Tilly bounced back from a crushing defeat the previous week to outplay The Directors, claiming 12 of a possible 13 points and only allowing the Directors four points.

This moves them up two spots to seventh in the table.

UBS have continued with their solid performances, claiming 10 points from the previous hotshots S & M Mixed Breed with their wins coming from the A, B & D positions Steve Smith, Aaron Manflu and Paul Broderick 3-2, 3-0, 3-0.

UBS captain Corbus Pietersen took a game off the in-form Delia Slater of S & M. Nevertheless, he was very happy with his team’s performance and their progress to equal second place in the table.

Sea Elements surprised DMS with a 3-2 defeat, two of which came through Charlie Riker – only 13 years old at C – and Marc Nelson, another 13-year-old playing at D.

Riker took out Jeff Jones 3-0 and Nelson outplayed James Osbourne 3-1.

The A string battle was won by Alex Frazer over Neil Stone-Wigg of DMS, leaving Jorge Vera at B for DMS to pick up some slack, which he managed to do 3-0 against Mike Nelson.

KPMG Kobras looked strong in pole position with only two more rounds to go.
