Allander squash teams mixed results

Strathgryffe 2nd team 3

Allander Squash 1st team 2

Ken Findlay at 5 and Gregory Dudziak at 4 both put on a determined show but neither managed to secure a game against skilful opponents. Both came close but in the end they each lost 3:0.

Phil Graves at 3 fought back hard and stubborn defence from the back corners and a bit more speed than recent weeks saw him surprised to reach 2:2. Unfortunately his opponent made fewer mistakes in the final game and Phil slid to a 3:2 defeat.

Scott Hay at 2 put up an even more spirited display, fighting back from 2:0 down to reach 2:2 and then overcoming a tiring opponent to win the fifth convincingly to win 3:2.

Finally Colin McGeady at 1 cruised to a straight 3:0 win with a mixture of power play and delicate drops.

Allander Squash 2nd team 5

Scotstoun 2nds 0

A maximum points victory over mid-table opponents from Scotstoun has lifted the team to second place in the league.

Sajjad Chaudry, Hamish McKay, John Millar and Norrie Aitchison all won comfortably 3-0, except for a minor wobble by Norrie, playing at position 5, who had to work hard to avoid dropping a game. The tension and excitement was saved for the last game of the night. Kevin Reilly, in top position, was last on court and kept onlookers enthralled. The match swung both ways before Kevin won 3-2.
