Mildura Squash back after a 2 week break for Easter and the school holidays, and it’s going to get interesting as teams battle for top 4 spots in both Division 1 and 2 of the Mildura Squash Inc Autumn Pennant.
Division 2 action, saw Gloria’s Angels just getting over the line against De-Faults by a couple of games. The stand out match in this encounter was the sheer determination by Jake Wilson (De-Faults) to come back from a 0-2 deficit and get the win over a very tough crafty opponent in Gloria Jago (Gloria’s Angels) winning in a marathon 5 game thriller.
Killer Whales had a solid 3 rubber to 1 win over Boastwitmost. An absolute thriller match between Te-Ahna Bacon (Killer Whales) and Matt Cook took place. Cook jumping out to a 2-0 lead. However, it was the fight and determination of Bacon that got her over the line in a great 5 game effort.
Lighter Whytes and Bake Beans were severely hit with injury and team members away leaving just a couple or rubbers to play. Lighter Whytes got the bonus team points with just a few points to spare. Breanna Smith (Beans Baked) defeated Fill in Tom Jaensch in a 5-game encounter and it was then the reverse as Lighter Whytes team member and youngest in the pennant Rohan Whyte scored his first ever pennant win in a thrilling 3-2 defeat over a gallant Natalina Mammone (Beans Baked).

In Division 1, Whyte Knights shined as they defeated The Centurions 3 rubbers to 1. Graeme Whyte was the stand out performance in this tie as he got a well-deserved win over Steve Pongrac in 4 very entertaining games. Special mention to Eamonn Whyte (Whyte Knights) who was very much in his match with Chris Stamos (The Centuriens), but it was the wise head of Stamos getting over the line in 4 games.
Team Three are showing they are not to be taken lightly as they defeated Limp Bizcutts 3 rubbers to 1. Fill In Adam Stephens (Team Three) was able to get over the line in a gruelling encounter with Kerry Spinks winning a great 5 game battle. It was the same score line as Martin Hawson had the legs to defeat Wayne Sparks in 5 games. Michael Bacon (Team Three) also in a battle of 5 games unlucky not to get the job down, as it was the sheers grit of Jeannette Vear (Limp Bizcutts) getting her team the only win on the board in another 5-game thriller.
