Flemington far from only venue for Tuesday winners
SQUASH: Melbourne Cup Day knocked the numbers, but couldn’t thwart the entire round of this week’s Tuesday Ladies Squash matches.
Team 1 played Team 3 in the opening tie.
Leanne Hinschen defeated Ida Arici, substituting for Tania Skaife, 3/27 to 0/11.
Despite ending up on the losing side of the ledger in that clash, Arici did collect one success on the day as she prevailed on forfeit.
Joy Vitanza displayed great touch to defeat Marian Churchward 3/27 to 0/9. Team 2 took on Team 4. Pauline Ogilvie proved too strong for Di O’Donnell, sealing a 3/28 to 0/14 triumph.
O’Donnell filled in for Julie Mitchell and despite a bold showing, went down to Louise Cox 3/36 to 1/16.
In the only match to go to five games, Alex OgilvieKnight staved off a determined Debbie Brown 3/39 to 2/31.
Little separated the pair during the contest, but Ogilvie-Knight found another level to collect the honours. Next week: 1v4,2v3. Order of play: 312 Smoko: Team 3.
