6ththLeague “B” vs Edenvale

Chamber vs “slippery Edenvale”

On the long road to the East the radio played an old Simon and Garfunkel favourite “slip sliding away”. I had no idea that this was going to be the order of the night. Firstly we were going to slip and slide around the court and then that we would be slipping down the league as we lost another match.

No 2 Ryan on first – just losing the first 8-10 then playing some good consistent squash forcing his opponent to make errors 8-10, 9-2, 9-4, 9-1 (3-1)

No 3 Gavin on next – a big first game where we both had opportunities for the game but eventually losing 9-10, could not come back in the second 3-9, tried in the third bit the little reverse drops took their toll 7-9 (0-3)

No 4 Flip on next – Flip our runner and quick turner struggled with the slippery court (no quick turning) lost the first 5-9, decided to switch courts and turn the game. Took the next 3 9-6, 9-6, 9-1 (3-1)

No 1 Chris – No pressure for Chris he had to win or get 2 games for a points count. Chris up against the youngster Dylan, the slippery road was in sight after the first game 0-9 down. It never got any better 6-9 and 2-9 (0-3). No points count we had already lost on games.

Match result : 6-10
