The final day of the Toucan Distributors Junior Skill Level Tournament closed off yesterday with Shomari Wiltshire keeping the top spot of Category A. Samuel Ince-Carvalhal earned runner up with Michael Alphonso and Nicholas Verwey taking third and fourth respectively.
It was a busy afternoon at the Georgetown Club and the crowds were not disappointed as some close matches captivated the audience. The Alphonso/Verwey anticipated battle played out with both boys exhibiting a superior level of squash. Passions were as high in the audience as on the court as they rallied through a 4 set match. Each of the boys executed a whole range of shots that tested the other and pushed them beyond their usual capabilities. It was a pleasure to watch the outstanding performances from the youngsters as Alphonso managed to keep ahead for a 7/11, 11/8, 11/8, 11/8 victory.
The most thrilling match came from Category C as Zachary Persaud and Louis DaSilva battled for first and second place. Persuad seemed to come into his own during this tournament as his previous training manifested itself and he turned out a solid basic game of good lengths and sharp drops. DaSilva rose to the challenge and showed improved retrieval skills as he answered Persaud. The five-game match showed both boys enhanced level of play but it was Persaud who reigned triumphant in an 11/9, 11/7, 9/11. 9/11, 11/8 result.
Cousins Grant and Christiana Fernandes had another close bout in category F. They went on court with a mission and it was a real fight for the win from the young athletes. Grant just pipped the post for a 9/11, 11/9, 11/9 win.
