The result of last night’s match was rather predictable, reflecting the players’ LFS rankings. Daniel (C2) came back from a set down to win 3-1 against his D1 opponent. Pierre (D3) struggled against a D2 opponent, losing 0-3. Likewise Tim (D3) lost 0-3 to a D3 opponent ranked 42 positions ahead of him. Nick (D4) made a strong start, winning the first game, before losing 1-3 to his D3 opponent.
The LFS interclubs d’été have started. ECSC is fielding one team (E.C.S.C. Summer) in Group A of Division 3. We started with an honourable 2-2 draw against City III (Pierre and Gavin winning their matches), but in our second match we went down 0-4 to Symbio 3.
ECSC 1 finished 5th out of 6 in playoff 5, while ECSC 2 finished 5th out of 5 in playoff 7. This was not our most successful season in terms of results, but we had a lot of fun along the way.
Thursday night’s penultimate match of the season for ECSC 1 was remarkable for two things: the worst and most perfect squash bruise ever seen in the annals of the ECSC, inflicted on the back of Frank’s thigh; and perhaps even more remarkably, a victory for Gavin Evans. The less said about Enrique’s, Rob’s and Frank’s defeats the better (although clearly in Frank’s case there were mitigating circumstances).

ECSC 2 won 3-1 against Symbio 3 in the final match of the 2018-2019 season. Mitch cruised to victory 3-0 (11-5, 11-7, 11-4) against Luciano. Jean-Luc had a harder fight against Jérémy, but prevailed 3-1 (12-10, 11-5, 9-11, 11-9). Pierre Dybman lost a closely fought battle against Hedi 0-3 (7-11, 14-16, 12-14). Tim dropped a game against Joel, winning 3-1 (11-6, 11-13, 11-8, 11-8).
We’re now looking forward to playing in the summer interclubs.
