Match Report for HGSRC 2 vs Wycombe 1 by Matt. Team : Sunil Popat, Matt O’Regan, Adam Phimister, Max Cherrett and Alex O’Regan.

The opening match was a 4 game thriller as Alex O'Regan was playing Kieran Mystery at no.5. Alex took the first game in style followed by a second game in similar fashion. However the Wycombe player fought back bringing it back to 2-1. However a cool head and consistent length play left Alex with a 3-1 victory.

Next door Adam Phimister had a tricky, fast paced match facing Sydney Wallace at the no.3 position. It didn't go the way Adam wanted as Sydney's power and technical ability had him run run running!! However Adam's thoughtful lobs nearly brought him the 3rd game but it wasn't to be and Sydney won 3-0. At number one was Sunil Popat who played yet again a very exciting 4 game match against Freddie Evans.

Freddie was 2 games up after some thrilling rallies but Sunil pushed every part of his body around the court using brilliant shot selection to get a game off the county U17 number one. However in the end Freddie won a tight game 3-1.

Number four Max Cherrett went on court against Salman. He had a fight on his hands losing the first game but he then rose to the challenge and brought it back valiantly, through power and belief to win, and won 3-1 leaving the overall match score tied at 2-2.

It was all down to the number twos who went on court with the match in the balance. Matt O'Regan went on to play RGS' captain for U19, Teddy. It started off brilliantly for Matt through skill and poetic length leaving him 2-0 up. However, Teddy wasn't standing for any of it and brought out his best squash to get the 3rd and 4th games under his belt leaving it 2-2 with the winner of the final game taking the overall match. Matt got to 9-5 but Teddy pulled it back 10-10. But Matt refocused and won 12-10 in the 5th meaning the match was 3-2.
