Squash – St Andrew’s vs Kingswood and Queen’s

On Monday 12 June the St Andrew’s 1st Squash team played their K-Day match at Kingswood. After the first 5 matches St Andrew’s were 3 -2 up with great wins by Andrew Holmes, Ian Meihuizen and Jake Taylor. In a very exciting final between the number 1s, Sam Scheckter lost the first 2 games narrowly. However, he made a huge come-back and fought very hard to win the exciting match 3 -2. This meant that St Andrew’s won the match 4 – 2 in matches and 14 – 12 in game points. This is the first time that St Andrew’s has won against Kingswood in many years.

Meanwhile, last week the St Andrew’s 3rd Squash team had a good win against the DSG 2nd team and they won 11 - 7. The 2nd team played the Kingswood Staff team and won their match 13 – 8 and the 1st team lost their match against a very strong Wyverns team.

The highlight of last week, was the match against Queen’s College (Saturday 10 June) which St Andrew’s won 12 – 9 in games and 4 -2 in matches. The final game of the day saw Jake Taylor win the crucial final match 3 – 2. This gave St Andrew’s the win and it is the first time in many years that St Andrew’s have had a squash victory against Queen’s.
