Baker Tilly Corporate Squash League Round 3

Baker Tilly Corporate Squash League

Baker Tilly Corporate Squash League

Week 3 of the Baker Tilly corporate squash league was a entertaining evening of squash culminating in a reshuffle of the league table. Namely Marlene West’s S & M mixed breed jumping from 9th up to 4th equal with a destructive victory over KPMG Racketeers gaining maximum points and only dropping a single games in the tie. The most spectacular match of the night was between KPMG Kobras Samantha Hennings and Digicel’s Jody Jervis, Hennings claimed first blood, but then took her foot off the gas and Jervis capitalized with his furious hitting winning the 2nd and 3rd games. The 4th game was a return to form for hennings and she moved Jervis around the court, more than he would have liked, he started crumbling and she took that game to level the score at 2 games a piece. The 5th and final game was a tense battle trading point for point up to 8all, then Jervis hit a ball down the middle, but covered the ’T’ meanwhile Hennings didn’t appear to realize and hit the ball as hard as she possibly could, striking Jervis on the calf – ouch! As this was not intentional and the ball was traveling directly to the front wall, Hennings was awarded the point. Serving at 9-8 in the final game, Hennings was able to keep her focus, whilst Jervis was a little shaken and tired and she tok the following point to give her match ball. This was converted following another long rally with both players covering the court from corner to corner eventually leading to the ball being just out of reach of Jervis. This match secured the Win for KPMG Kobras over the top of the league Digicel Diehards.

Round 2 of the Baker Tilly corporate squash league gained momentum and the teams are beginning to stamp their authority on the league table. Digicel managed to hold onto the top spot by beating DMS 4 matches to 1, but at one stage this could have gone either way. The C and D players had monumental battles with the result tipping in Digicels favor 3-2 for each tie, this left DMS with a lot to do, They claimed a scalp in the B with a victory from Jasun Sairsingh over Chris Hayman 3–0. The 4th match was Digicel and Cayman’s Caribbean Junior Champion U17, Julian Jervis against Stephen Gilbert of DMS, Stephen started strong and gained an early lead, but soon Julian found his stride and began to dominate the first game closing it out 11-7, the second was more ruthless than the first with Jervis capitalizing on some errors from Gilbert to claim it 11-3, and the 3rd was much the same to Gilberts dismay. The doubles match also went Digicels way. KPMG Racketeers jumped from 5th up to 3rd with an impressive display against Harmonic Hitters gaining 3 out of 4 individual matches, their colleagues KPMG Kobras however dropped from 3rd to 5th after a tight match up against UBS. UBS recruited David Finch as their A player, which strengthened their squad considerably giving them one of their 2 match victories.

Baker Tilley Corporate Squash League Results after Round 1

Baker Tilly Corporate Squash League

The first night of the Baker Tilly Corporate Squash League got underway with both Baker Tilly and Digicel dominating their matches. Whilst Baker Tilly overcame the S & M Mixed Breed team, taking full advantage of them missing their best player in Marlene West and claiming all 5 matches, a notable battle came from Gyles Luke(Cayman Junior representative) against the far more experienced Rick Bengle. The youngster took the first game 11/4, Rick bounced back and gained momentum in the 2nd narrowly holding on to lead and forcing an error in the tiebreak to take it 13/11. The 3rd game swung back in Gyles favor with him taking 4 quick points at the start of the game, he managed to hold onto this lead to go 2-1 up in games. The experience of Rick kicked in and he was calmer when the game progressed which lead to him applying too much pressure on Gyles and forcing errors at the end of the 4th, the 5th game was much the same whilst Gyles fight was spirited, he couldn’t seem to convert the chances he had and eventually went down 11-7 in the fifth.

Julian Jervis lead the Digicel team to a crushing victory over UBS with a decisive 3-0 win, this was followed by Chris Hayman at B showing Jason who’s the boss also 3-0, not to be out done Brian Hurley carried on the rout against Corbus Pietersen in the same fashion. It was only in the D string where UBS had the opportunity to grab a game when 2 of the 3 games went into extra time, unfortunately they both fell Digicel’s way and it wasn’t to be as Mark Mimnagh beat Paul 16/14, 12/10, 11/9.

The Alphasoft Junior National Squash Championships 2014.

The twins Sean & Daniel Murphy had a tough battle to see who’s on top in the U19 category. The first 2 games were fiercely contested with both brother claiming one a piece, the 3rd game saw Daniel steal a few extra points at the start of the game and he managed to hold onto them to close out the game and go 2-1 up. The 4th game was neck and neck right up to 7-7, then Sean came up with some fantastic shot selections to take him to game ball 10-7. Daniel obviously didn’t want to go into a 5th game and really dug deep adding more and more pressure onto Sean forcing some errors, resulting in Daniel saving 4 game balls against him and coming out victorious 12-10 in the 4th.
The U17 category was very much dominated by Julian Jervis who dropped very few points throughout the whole event. Julian will be representing Cayman this summer in the Junior Caribbean Championships and aiming to claim the U17 title to add to his U15 title 2 years ago.
Isaiah Robinson has improved tremendously over the past year and claimed his first national title in the U15 category. The U13 title was claimed by Will Roberts, but he was pushed hard along the way by David Pitcairn in the Qtr final which Will came through in a very tense  3-2 thriller, the semi final Will overcame Marcos Bertran 3-0 and the final match up was against Charlie Riker, who has been playing for less than a year. The U13 category was the strongest depth of field in this years Alphasoft National Championships, which bode well for the future of Cayman Squash. The U11 age group saw Pierce Terry claim his second national title, he outplayed Kai Dobbin to win 3-0. the U09 was a fantastic battle between jagger Linford against Connor Finch, both of these guys are 8year old and were trying so hard, the 1st game went to jagger, the 2nd went Connors way. They were scrambling around the court and showing some of the older kids just how much effort you need to put in to try and get the ball back! Jagger claimed the 3rd and went 2-1 up, but connor was having none of it and came back strong to take the 4th. Down to the 5th and final game with the crowd and especially the parents on the edge of their seats. From the start it was point for point and there were some sublime shots and returns all over the court, at 9-9 it was Jagger who was able to keep his game together and claim the next 2 points and the title 3-2.
The girls U17 was a great match up between Alexandra Artuch and Mischa Kluyver, Alexandra showed her experience on the day and managed to edge out Mischa for the last few points of each closely fought games winning 3-0. The U15 provided some good entertainment between good friends Emma Turnbull and Kali Maclean, the first 2 games were evenly split, but the 3rd and 4th showed how much a determined Turnbull wanted to reclaim her title from last year and she overcame Maclean 3-1. The Girls U13 held a surprise package in the form of Jade Pitcairn who dominated the field in her first tournament and dropped only 1 game throughout. Her final opponent was vanessa Fullerton who put up a good fight, but couldn’t deal with Pitcairn’s accuracy.
