Boy/Girls Squash v Oakham

Boys/Girls Squash v Oakham
On Friday 28th November -Away

Due to the success of the other 2 squash fixtures against Oakham this term, we decided to play another to finish off the term.

Our team: Freddie M, Max W, Miles J, Finlay F, Oliver M, Patrick B, Gracie F, Annie R, Fran J, Felix B, Millie B and Jake C

Making their squash team debuts were Annie, Fran and Millie. All three girls won all of their matches very convincingly. Millie actually played 3 different people but won each one! Patrick, playing at no. 6, made a welcome return to the team and had such an exciting match against an opponent of a similar standard. He battled hard and finally won 12-10 in the final game. Max, Finlay, Gracie, Felix and Jake all won 2-0 and were too strong for their opponents. Oliver, at no. 5 and Miles, at no. 3 both had to work hard. With the score standing at 1-1, both matches went to a decider. Oliver came out on top but Miles lost, having gone to 2 clear points. At no. 1, Freddie had her work cut out against a very strong boy. She found his pace difficult to deal with, but in her usual fashion, didn’t give up and put in a very spirited performance before finally losing 0-2.

It was nice to involve more of our children in the squash matches and it also showed what strength in depth we have at Stoneygate.

Congratulations to everyone who played.

Final score: Stoneygate won 10-2
