Finals – Saturday 27th November

Alicia Mead beat Torrie Malik 11-7, 11-9, 11-13, 6-11, 11-5 (52 mins)

Alicia started really strongly playing some accurate squash and moving very well, with Torrie perhaps contributing a few too many mistakes in the first two games. At 7-2 in the third it seemed we were in for a quick win, Torrie looking down and out. However, the youngster showed some real battling qualities to claw her way back and extend the match.

A change of tactics saw her slow the game down with height and hit some devastating kills off of any loose returns to take a comfortable fourth game. Alicia regrouped and adjusted to pull away from four all in the fifth to take the match and the title.

Sam Todd beat Miles Jenkins 11-4, 11-8, 11-2 (36 mins)

It was always going to be interesting to see how much both players had left after tough matches yesterday, especially Sam. However, the number 2 seed started quickly and never let Miles settle into the match, hitting a number of winners and countering at the front brilliantly, his opponent struggling to read the variations.

At 6-4 up in the second it looked like Miles may have got himself a foothold in the match but a few quickfire winners turning things back in Sam’s favour.

Full of confidence Sam took control of the third game and never let up.
