Cadogan, De Abreu shine

-at Farfan & Mendes Junior Skill level tournament

Caribbean silver girls under 15 silver medallist Abosaide Cadogan was the centre of attention on the opening night of the 2018 edition of the Farfan & Mendes Junior Skill level tournament after she notched up a hard-fought win over Lucas Jonas last evening at the Georgetown Club Squash Court.

Cadogan was made to work for her category B triumph, defeating her opponent 3-2.  She took the first set which was tied at 5 all, 11-7 but lost the second 9-11 after leading 6-0.

Cadogan quickly found her groove again by winning the third 11-6. Jonas, however, stuck to his straps and sent the match into the fifth set by taking the fourth set 14-12. Cadogan, though, used her experience and pulled out all the stops in the final game to clinch it 11-4 and her 3-2 win.

In another exciting encounter of the evening, Demetrius De Abreu downed the emerging Mohryan Baksh in an intense duel 3-1; 11-9, 6-11, 11-7, 11-7.

Winners in category D, on the other hand, were Joshua Verwey who defeated Lujua Munroe 11-4, 11-9, 11-5 while Teija Edwards found a way past  Deau Fernandes 3-2.

Meanwhile, Category F encounters saw Safirah Sumner defeating Noah Rahaman in straight sets 11-5, 11-6 while Kaden Pynaendy had the better of Matthew Spooner 11-4, 11-8 to get his campaign rolling the right direction.
