We are now a few weeks in to the latest Baker Tilly Corporate Squash League and the teams have come out swinging!
After two rounds of matches, past champions DMS are sitting top of the table with 20 points. DMS took on Digicel this week claiming a convincing victory. DMS’s Jeff Jones had the match of the night, fighting back from match ball down to clinch the deciding 5th set 14-12 against Digicel’s James.
The biggest match up of the night was the KPMG grudge match with KPMG Kman playing against KPMG Kobras. The Kobras had the firepower on the night claiming a 10 – 5 victory and the bragging rights to go with it. In what was another nail biting match, Samantha Hennings of the Kobras went to the 5th set against Mark Sparg of KPMG Kman. Hennings just had the edge over Sparg taking the last game 11-9 and therefore the match.
League veterans UBS played Sotheby’s this week, with Sotheby’s claiming an 11-4 win. Sotheby’s tactfully employed some of the clubs talented juniors with Mischa Kluyver and Jasun Sairsingh both claiming well-deserved 3-0 wins on the night for the team. Kali MacLean, another up and coming junior, narrowly lost in an exciting 5 set battle after coming back from 1 game down.
League sponsors, Baker Tilly, faced off against relative newcomers Phoenix. Phoenix had an impressive start to the league going into week two at the top of the table but were unable to maintain the momentum, losing 10-4 to the ever strong Baker Tilly team.
The scores on the doors after two weeks are:
- DMS – 20
- Sotheby’s – 18
- Baker Tilly – 18
- KPMG Kobras – 15
- Phoenix – 14
- UBS – 13
- Digicel – 11
- KPMG Kman – 11
The Randall & Quilter Legends of squash 2015 has just taken place at the 4 court facility run by Bermuda Squash Association. The event was a sell out with 4 nights of squash and the ‘legends’ taking on the responsibility of coaching session with local juniors and also some individual lessons for sponsors and patrons alike. The match set up was best of 3 games and there were 4 matches per evening. After 3 evenings of tremendous squash there were 2 guys who qualified to play each other in the Grand Final…Thierry Lincou and David Palmer. They took to the court on Saturday night and battled it out to 2 games all…the fifth game is a 1 point winner takes all affair! This year it was Thierry’s turn to end the match with a crushing cross court nick, much to the delight of his family and the crowd who were loving the tension in the match.
We are now well into the Baker Tilly Corporate League but there’s no sign of the Squash slowing down! Baker Tilly, the league sponsor, faced off against the RBC Lions, who were hungry for points! RBC came out guns blazing and managed to score the maximum 13 points, their best performance this season. A special mention has to be given to Alistair Cowper, the RBC Captain, who pulled of a gutsy 3-2 win against Dwight Dube, with both players fighting right until the end.
Undecided came up against KPMG Kobras losing 5 points to 9 with a strong performance from super sub Daniel Murphy beating Claire Roscoe 3-1. Despite the loss Undecided are still sitting in 3rd place just 9 points separating them from the number 1 spot.
DMS, lead by their A player Neil Stone-Wigg, had another storming victory claiming the full 13 points for the second week in a row. This leaves them in 2 points behind the top team with only 1 week of league matches to go.
Finally, UBS played the top team AON Red Tornadoes. Despite strong performances from UBS, AON just had too much firepower and were the third team of the night to claim the max 13 points keeping them in top position.
The points tally after Week 6 is:
1 AON Red Tornadoes 64
2 DMS 61
3 Undecided 55
4 KPMG Kobras 45
5 KPMG Kman 44
6 UBS 40
7 RBC Lions 30
