Week eight is now in the books and the Panthers continue to dominate with a solid lock on first place but “who let the dogs out”, the Huskies are hot on the trail of the cats and made a substantial move up the ladder with a blowout win over the hapless Tigers 44-19. The dogs picked up wins from Wayne Stanley who avenged and revenged a previous loss to Jeremy Stiles, Jason MacIntyre, Wade Gauthier,Luke LeClair, Dan Lazaratos, Stephen Cudmore and James O’halloran. Gary Roberts, who groused that he was sick and tired of his wife carrying the load, finally picked up a win and five points for the lowly Tigers and Trevor MacNeil continued to round into form with a tough five gamer over Bruce Johnston. In the second session the Blue Eagles eked out a 23-21 win over the Capers. Rob Morrison continues to impress as he took down Pierre Amsellum in four games while Shawn Hughes used his new squash shoes ,that he just bought from his opponent, to his advantage and defeated Andy Gallant in four games. Seana Evans-Renault continued her stellar play and defeated Rhonda MacLean in three games. Leading the way for the Capers was impressive junior Nathan Phillips, Nathan is improving at an exponential rate and he looks like he will be peaking just in time for the Canada Games. Nathan took down a very tough and talented Kyle Chaisson in four entertaining games. Also picking up five points for the Capers was Canada Games hopeful Ty Good as he took down steadily improving Matt Gallant in five tough games. CWOV’s Jeff Wichell and Derek Anderson locked up in another five gamer with Wichell pulling it out in the fifth. In the last session of the evening Connor Jinks has indeed snatched the pebble from the hand of the master as he had absolutely no sympathy for his father and took him down in three mercifully quick games. Following in her brothers footsteps, Emma Jinks showed little sympathy and continued the female domination of Brodie Carter this past week albeit in a much friendlier way and defeated Carter in four games. Undefeated Robert Sharkie continued his dominance at the sixth level with a four game win over Floyd Jackson and John McAleer played his best Squash of the season and defeated a very tough but tired Enrique Riveroll in five gruelling games which Riveroll would never see in tennis. Madison McQuaid is starting to show the poise and confidence she will need if she hopes to capture a spot on the Canada Games team as she defeated kelly MacWilliams in three games. Replying for the Sea Hawks were Benoit Sampson with a win over fellow junior Samantha Lawther and Brian Ashby with five game win over Liam “Tough Guy” Jinks on Liam’s 12th birthday.
