Power Bolts and Adams Family to contest KPMG squash finals

By March 27, 2019

Debutants Power Bolts and the Adams Family will play for the 2019 KPMG Squash League title after emerging victorious in two hotly contested semi-finals at the Liguanea Club in Kingston on Tuesday night.

The finals of the 2019 KPMG Squash League are set for Friday, March 29, at the Liguanea Club.  The third place playoff and the finals of the consolation round will be played on Thursday, March 28.

Up against the star-studded Milex Eagles, the Adams family rose to the occasion to deny the three-time champions another shot at the crown.

 Robert Roper led the way by beating Shane Slater 21-15, 21-14, 21-13 but then, former Caribbean junior champion, Larissa Wiltshire, evened things when she beat Allan Roper  21-19, 21-15, 21-13.

Adam Lee won the decider 21-6, 21-8, 18-21, 21-13 against Tahjia Lumley to take the Adams Family to the finals on their maiden voyage.

Another Cinderella story in progress is the amazing run of the junior players’ team, the Power Bolts, who battled past their fellow first-timers, Tech-A-Chance.

Current All Jamaica Under 15 Girls Champion, Savannah Thomson, beat Bion Bembridge 21-16, 21-16, 21-8 to put the Power Bolts 1-0 up only for improving junior, Rhys Greenland to beat Mia Todd 21-19, 21-19, 21-18 and bring Tech-A-Chance back into contention.

The matter was settled in a nail-biting skirmish where former Under 13 national champion, Aman Dhiman dug deep to defeat Derrian Barrant 21-17, 19-21, 20-21, 21-16.

“We saw very gripping matches in the semi-finals and having pulled through both the Power Bolts and the Adams Family will have to play their best games in order to win the title,” said tournament director Douglas Beckford.

“It’s difficult to make predictions when it’s a handicap tournament, but I will say that both teams will need to play solid squash and pick the right players for each of the matchups to come out on top in the finals.”
