The Baker Tilly Corporate Shootout’s second week saw Digicel really hit their stride, extending their lead at the top of the squash table by five points after claiming the maximum eight points on Thursday night.
Sitting in second place are The Directors, made up of the South Sound Squash Club’s board of directors. The Directors pulled off two good wins, taking down The Lions and then claiming the victory by one point against the strong KPMG team.
The Directors’ A player, Dan MacLean, took the prize for rally of the night, showing off some top level retrieving skills in the sudden-death, one-point game that would decide the winner of the match.
Alistair Cowper of The Lions took charge of the rally, moving MacLean front to back, corner to corner, but MacLean refused to stop running, ending in a stylish flat-out dive to prevent what everyone thought was a clear winner from Cowper, and ultimately winning the point.
This wasn’t the only dramatic sudden-death finish. Another Directors versus Lions match saw Sheena Conolly of The Directors expertly using the frame of her racket to spin the ball into the front corner to beat Leon den Exter 3-1 in the final game.
At the end of the night there was only one change to the positions after the first week, with Riffraff just edging ahead of league sponsors Baker Tilly by one point, putting them in fourth position.
