Squash News - 29 November

Team 1 faced Oxygène, last of the pool, at home, with only one court to play 5 matches, so the evening was long! The team won 4-1 and is currently 1st of the pool, as IBM lost their match 5-0 last night! We face IBM next week, in Nanterre, on November 5th. (See the main article for a picture of Team 1)
 
Team 2 lost 4-1 against Altiplano St Cloud in St Cloud, but Hugo added another victory to his series. 
 

Squash News - 5 December - Team 1 beat IBM 3-2!

Team 1 had a big match tonight against IBM, equal top of the pool.
Greg and David started at numbers 5 and 4. David won 3-1 and Greg lost 16-14 in the fifth after an epic comeback from 2:0 down. Next up, Aurélien at 3, won 3-0, and Alec at 1, also won 3-0 against a tricky player who wasn't able to play his usual shots. Last up, Jean-Guillaume against a very good Dan, was tired from business travel, lost 3-1, but will win next time!
 
So 3-2 victory for SAC Team 1!
