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.
