All the latest from the Seymour squash competition.THE BOASTER July 30, 2014 3:01am
Despite a potentially career ending knee injury to club veteran Colin ‘‘The Headband’’ McBean, Bulldogs have made it two from two and sit on top of the ladder in the competition. The Headband, who has a history of knee injuries, remains upbeat about returning to the court.
‘‘I look at ‘Halls Gap’ and I know I could beat him on one leg,’’ he said.
‘‘As for T-Rex, I am still quicker than him getting up the stairs .
The Headband’s team mates, Helen ‘‘The Greek Goddess’’, Flint and Sally ‘‘The Queen of Avenel’’ Littlewood, are in great form and are undefeated. The Goddess, close to retirement after a few disappointing seasons, is back to her best and leads the number two seed individual challenge. She was too slick for Lady Gaga, easily winning in four. The previous week she made Dave Bulluss look ordinary with an awesome display. The turnaround in The Goddess’ game has put her team in a powerful position and if she can maintain her form Bulldogs will be the team to beat.
Halls Gap appear to be aptly named. They were no match for the Bulldogs and seem to have something missing when they’re on the court. Rumour has it that The Gap has been advising the Australian Commonwealth Games squash team and this may explain the debacle which is unfolding in Scotland.
Chasers have also made a great start to the season and loom as a serious threat. Chad Parker and Rob Ritchens have won their first two matches and look in great form. Filling in for his mum, Bradley ‘‘The Kid’’ Allison was too good for Ian ‘‘The Terminator’’ Grak, winning in three. The Terminator has lost the confidence which saw him gain a cult following with his legion of fans but he has promised ‘‘I’ll be back’’.
All Stars secured victory over Bushman with victories to The Ace and The Boy from Broadford. The Ace is back after a niggling calf injury. Expect him to fly under the radar and be in peak condition for the business part of the season. The Boy from Broadford Bulluss needs some consistency in his game. He was too powerful for Macca but he struggles to put together back-to-back wins. Last week the Goddess made him look second rate. If the Boy can find form he will combine with The Ace to provide All Stars the opportunity to be contenders. Does The Boy have it in him? Stay tuned — and keep calling your lets.
