Bega Junior Squash to contest grand finals

LAST week saw some close, exciting and competitive matches in the LJ Hooker Bega Junior Squash competition semi finals - with the title deciders to be played Friday night.

In division two, The Butcher's Block and Magpie Music faced off with the chance to take on Chemworld in the grand final.

Ashleigh Sant started the night on the right foot for the Magpie Music team with a strong 3-1 win over a much improved Ethan Ryan.

Next on court, Jess Simpson put The Butcher's Block back in front with a resounding 3-0 effort over Rachel Pearce.

Scores were now 4-3 in favour of The Butcher's Block, but unfortunately for the team, captain Harry Peterson was unable to make it.

This left Gabriella Tarlinton as a sub with the responsibility of trying to take the match from an in-form Bailey Smith.

While Gabriella managed to take one game, Bailey sealed the victory in four.

Magpie Music defeated The Bucher's Block 6-5.

In division one, another tight tussle was the contest between Top Video and Allsigns Bega, with three of the contests going to five games - and in what would be the decider, Tynan Taylor defeated Zac Harlow in four.

Kallan Crosbie and Isaac Tarlinton for the Allsigns team both defeated their opponents Riley Joyce and Brooke Bartlett in five, while Nathan Curtis had a titanic struggle to beat Jayden Heyhorn in five.

Top Video defeated Allsigns Bega 10-9 to progress to the grand final.

It was not quite as close in the other division one encounter, where first-placed The Hook In accounted for LJ Hooker 9-5.

Ryan Galeano had a strong 3-0 win over Craig Pearce for The Hook In team, then Will Ubrihien's 3-0 result over Chloe Harlow squared things up.

Two strong finishes from Nikki Tarlinton over Alexander Eadie in four, and a surprise 3-2 victory from Ben Joyce over the undefeated Jordan Tarlinton, rounded out the night for their team.

The grand final will now be contested between top teams The Hook In and Top Video.
