Squash: So Below rise to the Top

1 04 2010

The So Below squash team won Division 1 of the John Henderson and Sons D and G Squash League with a crushing win over Finite Engineering.

The final week of the D and G Squash league opened with So Below holding a slim lead over Bard Vets with Finite Engineering also still in the running.

Bard Vets won their last match on Monday night with a convincing win over Noblehill and thus led the league by five points.

Needing six points to seal the league title, So Below were quietly confident but expected a close contest with Finite.

On the night, however, Finite’s No.1 player withdrew due to illness, which put pressure on all their remaining players to play up a position.

In the end, this proved too big a task, and after the first two matches of the night, So Below had secured the necessary six points with 3-0 wins for Robert Grierson and Keith Gristwood.

The remainder of the team continued the run with 3-0 wins for Sue Strachan and Jim Scriven, and a 3-1 win for Jimmy Wells to secure maximum points and the league title.

Division 1: Noblehill 3 Bard Vets 17; So Below 18 Finite 1.
