Women’s TT team advances at expense of Scotland
Commonwealth Games 2014…
—-Chelsea Edghill stars in monumental encounter
Amidst deafening noise, thunderous applause with the blue and white of the Saint Andrew’s Cross being waved prominently; on the morning of Friday 25th July at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games Chelsea Edghill became her country’s heroine.
The 17-year-old, who recently attended the Road to Nanjing Training Camp in Shanghai under the tutelage of such illustrious names as Jörgen Persson and Wang Liqin, maintained her focus and eventually screamed in delight as secured victory in the final games of the fifth match of the contest against Scotland.
One day earlier both Guyana and Scotland had suffered defeat against Australia, the second seeds.
After three hours, the verdict finished in favour the visitors.
Trenace Lowe gave Guyana the ideal start by beating Corinna Whittaker (11-1, 11-8, 11-7); Natalie Cummings doubled the advantage by overcoming Gillian Edwards (7-11, 13-11, 7-11, 11-7, 11-7), before urged forward by a virtual capacity crowd, the host nation mounted a recovery.
Linda Flaws combined with Corinna Whitaker to win the doubles against Edghill and Lowe (9-11, 11-7, 11-8, 11-8).
