Shomari Wiltshire had an easy win last evening to begin his campaign 

Easy going junior national sensation, Shomari Wiltshire began the 2018 edition of the Farfan & Mendes Junior Skill level tournament with an easy win on the second day of the tournament at the Georgetown Club Squash Court, last evening. 

There was no mucking around for the Caribbean under – 15 champion who hardly broke a sweat while disposing of Gianni Carpenter in their category A encounter, 11-1, 11-4, 11-1.  

The night also saw Michael Alphonso who displayed fine form, manufacturing a way past the usually sizzling Samuel Ince – Carvalhal in straight sets to carve out an impressive win, 11-6, 11-6, 11-9 in the other category A match.  

Abosiade Cadogan, on the other hand, clinched her second win in as many nights by defeating Mohryan Baksh in straight sets to keep her perfect record intact. 

The Caribbean silver medallist took the first two sets with relative ease 11-7, 11-2 but was pushed around by Baksh in the third before she eventually won it 11-9 in their category B encounter.
