Sunline snags close victory in squash grand final

Squash: A nail-biting grand final between Sunline and Winx meant the season came down to the final game, where Lindsey Newby sealed the victory for Sunline - taking out the day with four wins to three - after narrowly beating Winx player John Sommerfield.

In an evenly spread day, Winx started off strong with Kipp Singleton beating Sunline's Mel Doonan two games to nil.

Dale Chicken evened the playing field with a hard-fought two games to nil victory over Winx's Cailtin Doheman in the second round.

Jess Head came out fighting and put pressure on Catrina Steer early to come away with the win after three evenly fought games, giving Sunline the lead.

The ever-reliable and hard-hitting Damon Moody came out firing big hits and power to beat Jodie Mcleod three games to nil, leaving the score at two-all.

Luke Maher showed why he was the most improved all season, playing good squash and defeating Tam Jenyns three-nil and putting Winx back in the lead.

With pressure on Matt Jackson to take the win over Josh Griffiths and seal the win for Winx, Josh showed why he's the leading player for Sunline and after six close and hard-fought games he kept Sunline in the final with a four-set win.

Luke Maher was awarded the most improved player and the encouragement award went to Kipp Singleton.

Squash will now have a break until after the school holidays.
