In an early start to the festivities for Saturday's World Squash Day there were some fantastic games in the Wednesday Night Mixed Squash Competition.
Team 1 Keegan hammered Team 2 Neil with wins for Jesse and Mick Keegan, Chris Elkington, Mac Thompson, Kym Knight, Brendan Stuart and Catherine White.
The dashing, dominant Dave 'The Neil Deal' Neil bounced back from last week's defeat to down the Dubbo demon Tony Elliott, the result never in doubt with Neil winning in three.
Pat Clarkstone proved 11 is his lucky number after losing 10 times previously to wine guru Scott Burke. Clarkstone wore Burke down winning in five games.
Team 3 Baker and Team 5 Cole drew, with wins for Toby Baker, Mark Goes, Nathan Garton, James Cole and Lachie Dickson.
In the sibling rivalry stakes Morgan Mahlo asserted his authority disposing of his brother Lindsay in three, while Belinda Bunting, who didn't handle losing to her sister Katie Hailes last time around very well, gained her revenge by winning a close match in four games.
Kylie Keegan returned to the court after a four-year lay off from a snapped Achilles tendon. She played well but went down in four to Jarrod Collett.
Team 6 D'Aquino beat Team 4 Cavalli with wins for the Italian connection Charles D'Aquino and Frank Cavalli, Rod Bevan, Scott Shepherd, Rory Daburger, Steve Blackwood and Luke Tester, while Graham Kidson won a cracker in five.
George Eleftheriou beat the author of the big book of excuses Grant Michell.
Belinda Thurtell went on the court expecting to progress easily but her opponent Lawry Brayne had different ideas. The match was an epic with three of the five games going to a tie break. Belinda sneaked through in five games.
