We are now at the halfway point of the Baker Tilly Corporate Shootout and Digicel have really hit their stride, extending their lead at the top of the table by 5 points after claiming the maximum 8 points on the 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 1 point against the strong KPMG team.
The Director’s A player, Dan MacLean, took the prize for rally of the night showing off some top level retrieving skills in the sudden death, 1 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 vs 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 the league sponsors Baker Tilly by 1 point putting them in fourth position.
The scores at the end of week 2 are:
1. Digicel – 27
2. The Directors – 22
3. KPMG – 20

5. Baker Tilly – 18
6. The Lions – 15
