Squash impress

 

SQUASH players on Team PNG particpating in the XX Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland, made a few impressive performances yesterday (Wednesday) in Day 8 of the Games.
The women's doubles pair of Lynette Vai and Eli Webb beat Trinidad and Tobago (TT) 2-1.
The PNG side started the match well and took the first set to 11-6.
TT came back more determinedly in the second set to push PNG over with a score of 10-11.
The similar determination carried through into the final set but the Vai-Webb team managed to stop them with a 11-10 set.
Vai went on to pair up with Madako Junior Suari for the mixed doubles for the pool H match against Cayman Islands where they put up an impressive performance but going down 2-1.
Cayman won the first set 11-9, the PNG pair won the second 10-11 but lost on the final set 11-5.    
Men's doubles Schubert Maketu and Moreina Wei impressed the crowd with some good moves in their game against England's Adrian Grant and Nick Matthew. 
The PNG men started very slow, possibly from nervousness in playing against the singles champion (Matthew) and the highly placed Grant.
But when they did get into the game, they made sure they did not make the win easy for the English.
The full time score was 11-6, 11-7. 
The other women's doubles team and men's doubles pair did not fare well in their matches either. 
Barbara Boyce played well and managed to get into the final of the consolation prize but lost to Naduni Gunawardane 3-0.
