Scales tipped to Advance
Advance Scales and Cash Registers beat Instyle Sleepcentre three rubbers to one to take out the 2006 Thursday Night Business House Squash competition last Thursday.
Danny Parsons from Instyle beat Mark Goulding 3-nil after Mark was called in to play for Jack Turcutto, who was away on a cricket camp. Advances Sue McDonald was also unavailable and was replaced by Mark Barnes, who beat Garry Finnigan in a hard fought match 3-2.
Meanwhile, Phil Jones (Advance) and Kel Brooker (Instyle) played out a topsy turvy set of games with Kel winning the first 9-3, losing the second 9-3, winning the third 9-4 and losing the fourth game 9-7. She eventually lost the decider to Phil 10-8 as Phil dug extra deep for the thrilling win.
Leading two rubbers to one, Advance Scales Bob Hoff was up against Michael Blue Wawn from Instyle. Blue won the first game 9-6 after Bob strained his groin trying to run down a drop shot. However, the injury wasnt enough to keep Bob off court and after a quick rub-down he returned to beat Blue in three straight games.
This put Advance Scales ahead three rubbers to one, so final players Craig Hogan (Advance) and Instyles John Colless decided to take early refreshments and not play.
