Hunts County 1 vs Melbourn 1

Weds 20th November


Melbourn won 17-6

Melbourn 1st team travelled up to Hunts County for their latest Cambs Squash League Division 1 encounter.

Kate Bradshaw settled into an easy win at #5 over Simon Strucke, with Malik Bilen also taking an early win at #3 against Matt Beaton. Vinod Duraikan stepped on court next but wasn’t his usual self from the outset. With a game typically characterised by no errors and faultless decision-making, Duraikan was struggling to find his usual form. He lost 3-0 to a very surprised and delighted John Williams.

Skipper Mark Oppen (4) was on next and although also not at the top of his game he managed to pull out a 3-1 victory over an upcoming junior, Sofia Averio-Pita. Matt Sampson waited for the high-ceilinged court for his match against Colin Griggs at 1#. This was a hugely entertaining match with both players enjoying spells of excellent squash, but Sampson stepped up a gear at the end with pressurising play to take the final win of the night and the match for Melbourn, by four strings to one.
