Week three of Fall Session # 2 is now complete and the number of re-scheduled games are starting to become problematic as we only have two more weeks left in this session. Please make every attempt to get those matches played and reported to Wayne or John so up to date and accurate standings can be posted on this website. Cam Beck is starting to make a habit of getting down two games and then, contrary to what it looks like, Beck uses his superior physical attributes and verbal abilities to wear down his opponent and win in five. I wonder what a game against Beck would be like if he was not allowed to utter one word during the match, implosion comes to mind!!! Don Gallant and Robert Sharkie also hooked up in a great match with Robert winning the first two before Gallant unleashed the reverse boast “hushinator” and took the next three games. Ten days of fun and frolic on a Florida golf vacation can knock the crap out of a person and put a finely tuned “Cheese Rolling” professional off their game! Dodi Crane playing her best squash in years defeated Solange Sharkie in another entertaining five game match. Mike Buchanan continued his undefeated string as he took Lester Jinks down in three games. Lester made it interesting and had Buchanan at game point but lost 12-10. Nick Trainor is starting to bring his game up to the level that he is capable of and defeated a tough Rob Morrison in five games. CWOV’s Steve Banks and Wayne Stanley also hooked up in a good match with Steve winning in five. Samantha Lawther is starting to round into shape after an injury and defeated Jason MacIntyre in five games. Colin Younker picked up a participation point for his team the Miracles, again!!!! Highlight match of the evening had Brodie Carter and Jeremy Stiles doing battle with Carter pulling it out in five. Carter is certainly improving and with his 4-2 victory over highly touted “A” player Jonathan “Tinman” O’Keefe, Brodie will be looking to leave behind the “B” division and take on the next challenge which will probably be a re-match with the Tinman!! Until next week, get to the T, the walls are your friends and best of luck to all Island players participating in the Moncton Tournament this weekend!

We begin with heartfelt congratulations to young Quincy Beck on her victories last weekend at the UPEI Open. Quincy’s win in the tough Men’s B division vaults her into the upper echelon of squash on P.E.I, she is now the newest fodder in the tough Men’s A division. Knowing Quincy, she will work hard to be competitive and she may even surprise at this level. Last week I picked on the Mill Rats and they responded to the challenge to “do better”, the Rats picked up wins from Lyndon Oulton, the whole Phillips family, Campbell Webster and Lorraine MacDonald to post 37 points and move from the basement into fourth place. Todd MacLean responded for the Rainmen with a tough 3-1 win over model turned squash player Jonathan O’Keefe, also garnering wins for the Rain were Cam Beck, Jeff Witchel and Rob Fletcher. The Miracles showed that they will be one of the teams to be reckoned with as they accumulated 38 points and moved into first place. Lester Jinks decided that Steve Bruce should also have a tour of court # 4 (since he toured court # 3 last week) and kindly provided Steve with some in depth coverage of all four corners. Nick Trainor then took down pro crokinole player Jarmo Puiras in a tough 5 gamer and finally Colin Younker actually picked up points for his team other than participation points!! Also picking up victories for the Miracles were Emma Jinks, Samantha Lawther, Ron Gamble and Kelly MacWilliams, replying for the Sky Hawks were CWOV Gary Roberts and the father-son team of Derek and Logan Anderson. The highlight match of the night had Solange Sharkie battling league newcomer Sandie Morrison in five highly entertaining games. The match was very much in doubt until Morrison injured her backend and Sharkie, smelling the blood in the water, wasted no time in taking advantage and pulled out the win for the Lightning. Gary Scales and Andy Gallant locked up in another great match with Scales using a variety of touch shots to put Gallant away and garnering 5 points for the Storm. Also picking up wins for the Storm were Rob Morrison, Shara Cody and Donald O’Keefe, replying for the Lightning with victories were Allan Hughes and Kieran Hennessey. On a lighter note it’s always interesting to hang out around the courts during a tournament and hear some of the funnier comments like; How are you doing so far? Well not too bad but I haven't reffed yet!
Heard at a Vets match, if the rallies go longer than 3 hits, I made a mistake!
Mother to son, how did you do? I took him to 3 games mom. Mom-I’m so proud at how much you are improving!! Until next week, get to the T, the walls are your friends and it’s nice to see that one O’Keefe can win!!
