Squash News - Matches this week Monday (20/1) and Thursday (23/1)

This week Team 1 had two important matches. On Monday evening at home, they played against Squash 95 4, a match that had been rescheduled due to the December strikes. SAC 1 won 4-1. On Thursday they played Altiplano St Cloud (the only team to beat us in the first part of the season) also at home. This time, we mercilessly took our "revanche" 5-0. It definitely felt like Division 2 is getting closer for Team 1... Team 2 did not play this week. 

Squash News - Matches played on Thursday evening, 16 January

Team 1 played away against Verrières, a strong team that we had beaten previously at home; they were rumoured to be out for revenge and fielding their best possible team. We, on the other hand were missing 2 players. In the end, Team 1 won 3-2. Team 2 played Chaville at home and unfortunately lost 3-2. Read on for a full report and photo!

Squash News - 12 December - Team 1 wins 5-0, Team 2 loses 3-2eat IBM 3-2!

Team 1 played La Garenne at home. They were only able to field 4 players, so we fielded team players number 5, 6, 7, 9, Aurélien, David, Sean, Jacques-Philippe, and were leading 1-0 before starting to play. All our players won, despite some difficult matches, so we ended with a 5-0 victory for the SAC!

Team 2 unfortunately lost 3-2 against Altiplano Quartier Latin

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!

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!
 
(Team 2 didn't have a match)
 

Squash News - 7th November

SAC Team 2 didn't play on Thursday evening, but SAC Team 1 faced St Cloud 6 at St Cloud. This was a team that spent most of last season at the top of the pool, until we beat them at home, causing them to drop to 2nd position and preventing them from going up to 2nd Division (we finished 3rd). Read on to see what happened!
