Jamaica Take a Big Lead Into Day Two

Binnie & Browne in Action
At the end of Day One of the Squash Challenge between Bermuda and Jamaica has seen the visitors take a commanding 6 – 1 lead.

Caribbean ranked number one and world ranked number 77 Chris Binnie defeated Bermuda’s number 2 and world ranked 287th Noah Browne in straight games, while Lewis Walters the second ranked Caribbean player and 91st ranked in the world defeated Bermuda’s number 1 and ranked 155th in the world Micah Franklin 3 – 1.

Although many would look at the score and draw a conclusion that the matches were one sided, but if they report that it would clearly show that they were not in attendance.

The opening match saw Binnie defeat Browne 3 – 0, the pair traded shot after shot, but when it came down to the business, Binnie was able to get the better of Browne in the opening game 11-9, game two saw the pair look to control the T, but it was the experience of Binnie which saw him take a 2 – 0 lead winning the second game 11-6. Browne went in search of pulling a game back, however with Binnie now in full flow, he answered every call that Browne requested, Binnie would win the third game 11-7 to win the match 3 – 0.

Franklin would be cursing himself all the way to the changing room following this match, Franklin played Walters point for point in the first game even holding a Game Point lead at 10 – 9, but Walters would show why he is the Caribbean 2nd ranked player to fight off Franklin to take the first game s 13-11, with a strong and vocal local crowd supporting him Franklin would level the match at 1-1 when he won the second game 11-5, Walters would then realize he was in a battle and turned up the play in the third game recording an 11-5 win, Walters would then end the match as a contest winning the third game 11-8 for Jamaica to take that commanding lead.
