Teams play hard in squash final
ON Friday night the Warwick Rose Squash Club held its grand final for season one.
The two teams that made the grand final were Tiger Woods and Diego Maradona. Tiger Woods came first in the regular season and their opponents were in fourth place and won the prelim final over team Ben Johnson.
The first match saw junior player Jordan Erskine up against Ian “Turtle” Wallace. It was a close match, with Turtle winning in four hard-fought games.
Next on were number one players Neil Erskine and Jon Henry. This was a high-quality match with Jon going for every shot possible. Neil had all the answers plus some, winning in three straight games.
Next on was Mark Sinnott and Jayson Crispin. Jayson was the line winner who always had Mark covered and won easily.
This gave the Maradona a two-rubber lead when Lucas Gillott played the determined Vicky Guymer.
Vicky gave her best but the younger and fitter Lucas won in straight games.
This made it two rubbers all with the last match to decide the winning team. Older silver fox Chris Guymer was up against the younger in-form Aden Babbington.
This was a great game with both players playing above their line-two standard.
Chris came out of the blocks catching Aden by surprise and winning the first game.
Aden then found his feet and won the next two games to give him a two game to one lead.
Aden came out in the fourth game with all guns firing and cleaned Chris up, not giving him a look in. He took the game and gave his team, Diego Maradona, a three rubbers to two win.
Congratulations to the Maradona team and also to Vicky, as this was her first win since 1988.
