ANOTHER successful junior tournament was hosted by the Isle of Wight Squash Academy with three categories battling it out in individual handicap events.

The C event saw the youngest juniors play a round-robin event, with Cameron Darcy, playing with a -7 handicap, failing to drop a game to take the title, with Jasmine Dominey (+6) a close runner up.

The B grade saw the winners of each group enter the semi finals.

The match between Isabel Dominey (+4) and Zach Frampton (-4) was one of the closest of the day, which Zach won 3-1 in games.

The other semi saw a family battle between number two seed Patrick Mattinson (-12) against younger sister, Rene (+7), with Patrick too strong — winning in straight games 15-11, 15-10, 15-10.

The final looked close on paper, with only eight points separating them, but Patrick won convincingly in straight games 15-4, 15-3, 15-5 to take the title.

The strong A grade saw some terrific matches.

Using the B event format, top seed Ciaran O’Gorman (-20) played newcomer Felix Lau (-4) — beating him 15-8, 15-7, 15-6 to make the final.

The other semi saw Tom Brockwell (-20) and Tom Daniels (-18) battle it out, with Brockwell winning 3-1 to book his final spot.

In front of a packed crowd at Westridge, the final was the day’s top match, with Brockwell racing into a two-game lead (15-11, 15-12) and in control.

But a long rally in the third, won by O’Gorman, was a big turning point as he won the next three (15-10, 15-12, 15-10) to take the title.
