The Security Centre Squash league Round 7

Security CentreThe Security centre Squash League is really heating up with the completion of round 7 and only 2 more fixtures left on the schedule. DMS are still in fine form and have crept away from AON who hold onto 2nd spot. Walkers have trodden on the Sheriffs and stolen the 3rd spot, whist Digicel and SIR AXISS are dueling for 5th position.

Sothebys International Realty (SIR) AXISS International Management(AXISS) gained the most point on the night adding 12 to their tally when they proved too strong for KPMG Racketeers. Jake Kelly, Dwight Dube and Luca Polloni recorded 3-0 victories for SIR AXISS in the A, B & D positions. KPMG’s Alex Johnson managed to save 3 points by beating Seb Poznansky in the closest match of the tie.

 

Walkers took on UBS and came away smiling with victories from Patrick McConvey, Nikil Jha and Andrew Barker all 3-0 in B, C & D positions, whilst  Ashley Gunning at A didn’t have such a stroll in the park. UBS’s Cory Scruggs managed to put too much work into Gunning during the first 2 gems which lasted 40mins and were 11/9, 12/14 and 1-1, this is when the younger Scruggs kept the pressure on and wore Gunning down, winning the 3rd and 4th games 11/5, 11/8 to claim his win.

 

It was a top of the table clash against AON and DMS, Aon’s Daniel Murphy had a great match against the wily and experienced Neil Stonewigg at t A position. it was Stonewigg who drew first blood taking the first game 11/6, and the 2nd 11/9. Murphy showed his determination and growing confidence when he stepped up the court to intercept the ball earlier and apply press onto Stonewigg forcing more errors, he was rewarded with the next 2 games 11/6, 11/8. The fifth game showed Murphy has gained more maturity on court when he managed to hold his nerve and keep the more experienced campaigner at bay to claim the match 3-2. AON’s Janet Sairsingh had a tough match against Jorge Vera, who is unbeaten at B this season. Sairsingh put up a valiant performance but went down fighting 3-0. DMS”S Craig Scott at C string demonstrated that he has been learning some moves this season when he came up against Ade Doherty. Scott won the first game and lost the second, but realized that he could make Doherty run from corner to corner whilst dominating the T area in the centre of the court. This tactic worked and he held onto the lead into the tie break to claim the 3rd game 13/11. The 4th was much the same after Scott gained a lead he pressured Doherty into errors which ultimately helped him win his tie 3-1. AON’s Alexandra Artuch showed her calmness at the crucial stages of games when she found herself 2-1 up and having match ball for the 4th time, holding her nerve she managed to stick to her guns and work hard for that last point, which gave her a great victory over Jeff Jones 3-1. DMS managed to win the doubles tie and claim a 3-2 match win over AON.
