Boys Squash v Oundle – Away
On Monday 17th November
Team: Phillip W (Capt.), Archie G, Freddie M, Max W and Finlay F
We played against an experienced team of year 9s from Oundle. On court first were Max and Finlay. Both were up against very strong players who placed the ball accurately. Although both put up spirited performances, they lost 3-1 and 3-0. That left all three remaining players to record a win if we were to keep our seasons unbeaten record. And all three didn’t disappoint. Archie was too clever for his opponent, Freddie, having gone 4-0 down in the first game, fought back, hitting the ball as hard or even harder than her opponent and using her wide variety of shots to out wit her player. Phillip at no. 1 showed great skill and fitness as he beat his opponent fairly comfortably in the end.
The Oundle players appeared to all be of a similar standard. Everyone played several friendly matches afterwards with mixed results although we came out on top overall.
All of our players benefitted from playing against these experienced players. This proved to be our best fixture so far this term.
1. Phillip won 3-0
2. Archie won 3-0
3. Freddie won 3-0
4. Max lost 1-3
5. Finlay lost 0-3
