The Orange Strength Fitness Centre felt like a battlefield during the Wednesday Night Mixed Squash Competition this week.
Team 3 Elliot upset Team 1 Wilson with wins for a resurgent George Eleftheriou, Tim Howarth, Michael Abberton, Kynan Baker, Belinda Bunting and Yvonne Tracey. Harvey Wilson won a thriller 17-16 in the decider while Cranky Franky Cavalli showed up again, constantly arguing with the official during his 3-nil loss to semi-veteran Steve Elliot.
Team 2 Chapman won well beating Team 6 Bigg with wins for Glenn Atkinson, Steve Bigg, Scott Baker, Rod Bevan, Jarrod Collett, Robyn Chapman and Lawry Brayne survived a racket to the face to win in four, while Lyle Davis was another victim of on court violence copping a ball to the neck which left him obviously distressed as he eventually lost in five to Troy Seers.
Team 4 Keegan smashed Team 5 Blackwood with wins for the best player in his family Mick Keegan, Lindsay Mahlo, Darren Wooding, Tony Elliot, Yvonne Tracey, Steve Blackwood and Belinda Thurtell claimed another massive scalp upsetting Peter Brearley in five, while Matt Garlick, having 100% of the crowd support, could not beat club pelican Grant Michell after a cracking match which finished long game in the fifth.
