Melbourn I vs Radlett I
Weds 23rd May
Melbourn won 9-5
Melbourn Squash Club 1sts picked up their first win in Herts Summer League Division 3 as they edged out Radlett 1sts 9-5 in a night that went to the wire.
Melbourn started well as Mark Oppen (2) put in a consistent performance and allowed his opponent to make mistakes, Mark winning 3-0. However Radlett struck back when Chris Fowell (3) was edged out of his first two games and couldn’t recover in the third, going down 0-3.
That put everything on Dan Easton’s shoudlers at top string. Dan started well, building a 2-0 lead but they saw that dissipate as the visiting player turned things around. However there was one more momentum shift as Dan dug in during the final game to edge it 15-10 and give Melbourn victory on a good night of Squash.
