Die Hard Week 6 Summary - B League

Rino Marcon continues to knock off all comers in B1B. This week Marcon took down the veteran Jim Oakley by the score of 3 games to 1. At this rate Marcon will be playing on Monday nights very soon. Although Josh Pinese says that Marcon still must play him to reach Mondays first. Kelly Zlotnik pushed Bruce “Soft Hands” Jean to the limits this week in a hard fought five game match. Zlotnik has been knocking on the door a couple of times now for her 1st victory. I have a feeling that her big breakthrough will come in the playoffs. Don’t be over looking her

Die Hard Week 6 Summary - A League

Jeff Saddy is cleaning house in A4. Saddy has won all three of his matches in the 2nd half of the league by the score of 3 games to none. If Saddy continues his strong play he will easily win A4 and it is just a matter who is going to finish 2nd.
"Rocket" Roddy Larson renewed his rivalry with his nemesis Mitch Kosovitch this week. As their matches in the past, Larson tried to push for long rallies hoping to wear down Kosovitch. Despite Larson’s tactics, Kosovitch proved to be a tough foe and forced the match to five games before falling victim to the Larson’s long rallies.
Paul “Don’t Call Me Sinbad” Gebrael seemed to be running away from the competition in A2B with 2 matches of 3 games to 0 wins. But in his third match against Amir Lebherz the train came off the track for Gebrael as he was defeated 3-0 in a hard played match. Despite this loss Gebreal’s is only getting better.

Squash Tip

Find time to practice as well as play. It is only by hitting the same shot again and again that you can master the shot. Hitting the shot many times in a row can help you ‘groove’ in the shot, and gain the ‘muscle memory’ needed to hit the shot well during an actual game. - J.Power

Die Hard Week 5 Summary - B League

Bruce “Soft Hands” Jean quietly defeated James Konrad 3-1. Jean was determined not to allow himself fall behind in the league standings after a being defeated last week by Jason Delavrier. Meanwhile Delavrier is laying waste to all the competition in B2A. Delavrier is determined to win the league but his new job might throw a wrench into his training schedule.

Phil Fernandes showed the newcomer to B1 Brad Brazier that he still has some things to learn. Although Fernandes is playing well, his days may be numbered as Amanda Sjoberg is closing the gap between the two of them.

Die Hard Week 5 Summary - A League

Andrew Caille fell victim to overconfidence as he built two to zero games lead over Anis Khan. Khan battled back to force the fifth game. In the fifth game Caille again showed too much over confidence as he built 6 – 1 lead before Khan came back to steal victory from him.
Rudy “The Energizer Battery” Wey again showed that he is too tough to out work. Winning 3-1. Mark Little tried to wear down Wey last night with long rallies but failed to put the final blow. Wey showed the younger Little that he still has some juice in the tank.
Peter Ryan bounced back nicely this week after a tough loss last week to Maresq Child. This week Ryan took out his frustration on the young gun Stefan Houbtchev by winning 3-2. Although Houbtchev “claims” that loss was attributed to his Ipod was not updated with the latest music.
