IT WAS a semi-fi­nal squash thriller for Leah McKel­lan and Judy Hughes on Tues­day morn­ing.

The match, part of the games be­tween Teams 1 and 2 who were play­ing for a spot in next week’s fi­nal, saw Leah win 3/40-2/30.

It was a marathon con­test be­tween the two play­ers that could’ve gone ei­ther way, how­ever Leah pulled through to win the big points when it mat­tered, gift­ing her a well-earned five-set vic­tory.
