Cardiff squash Swansea

Cardiff Ladies ……………………….3

Swansea Ladies …………………….1

Cardiff Ladies produced an impressive performance to win this year’s Welsh Varsity squash, winning three out of four matches in the process.

Swansea established an early lead, winning the first match 18-16 11-4 11-5.

However, a resilient Cardiff bounced back, with Gill Steele leading the way for the home side, who eventually claimed the second match in a grueling five sets, 11-12 11-4 11-8 10-12 11-8.

The impressive Anna Johnson made light work of Swansea’s Lily Lai as she cruised to a comfortable straight sets victory, 11-4 11-7 11-4.

Cardiff’s Natalie Machin put the tie to bed in the final match, easily defeating Swansea’s top seed. The win was, once again, in straight sets, 11-3 11-1 11-0.

After celebrating another Varsity victory, the ladies will now look ahead to next season and hope to improve on this year’s mid-table finish in the BUCS Western Conference 1A.
