Lions suf­fer heavy loss


Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

WY­COMBE Squash & Racket Club firsts were not in ac­tion in the Bucks Squash League this week, but there were some sig­nif­i­cant re­sults else­where.

Up-and-com­ing Ayles­bury Gram­mar School trounced Bea­cons­field Lions 19-1, while cham­pi­ons Che­sham Bois firsts nicked the bonus points at Ger­rards Cross, squeez­ing a 14-10 win. The only team in the di­vi­sion with a 100 per cent record, Bea­cons­field Tigers, lie in wait for them next.

In Di­vi­sion Two, Wy­combe SRC seconds won their top of the ta­ble clash against Bea­cons­field Bulls 16-9 and now lead the ta­ble, hav­ing won all of their first three games.

In the Ladies’ League, it was Wy­combe Swans’ turn to play Bea­cons­field Spots, their club­mates the Kites hav­ing lost 14-8 to them last week. The Swans cruised into an early lead, with the top pair Bethan Draper and Mar­ian Holmes both win­ning 3-0, coun­tered by Ni­cole Manley’s 3-0 for the Spots.

It was look­ing like a well over­due win had gone ‘up the Swa­nee’ as Spots’ Kathi Tay­lor went 2-0 up in the last leg, but Swans’ Brenda Ede hung on for dear life, win­ning the third game 10-9 and the fourth 9-6. Although she lost the last, she had al­ready se­cured the bonus points for a 12-6 win.
