Wroclaw (Poland), July 18 — Sachika Ingale, Harshit Kaur Jawanda and Lakshya Ragavendran advanced to the third round of the girls singles in the World Junior Squash Championships here that saw the end of the Indian challenge in the boys' section.

Ingale made short work of Grace McErvale from Australia 3-0 Wednesday and Jawanda used her speed and aggressive play to beat Karolina Holinkova of Czech Republic by a similar margin. Ragavendran played well to control the youthful exuberance of the dangerous floater Sivasangari Subramaniam from Malaysia for a 3-1 result.

Tanvi Khanna was the only Indian girl to lose on the day, after being outplayed by higher-ranked Vanessa Raj of Malaysia 3-0.

Deepak Mishra, Kush Kumar and Rishi Tandon all fell in the third round as Indian campaign drew to an early close in the boys' event.

Mishra, who received a bye into the third round, was outclassed by British Junior U-17 champion Diego Elias of Chile in Round 3 of the competition while Kush Kumar went down to Welshman Joel Malin 1-3 and England's Lyell Fuller knocked out Tandon 3-1 in a tight match.

The results:

Boys (Round 3): Diego Elias (PER) bt Deepak Mishra 11-3 11-1 10-12 11-4; Lyell Fuller (ENG) bt Rishi Tandon 11-4 11-5 12-14 11-7; Joel Makin (WAL) bt Kush Kumar 11-9 13-11 6-11 11-7. Round 2: Kush Kumar bt Rodrigo Obregan (ARG) 11-5 11-8 11-7.

Girls (Round 2): Sachika Ingale bt Grace McErvale (AUS) 11-8 11-6 11-5; Harshit Kaur Jawanda bt Karolina Holinkava(CZE) 11-8 11-3 11-5; Lakshya Ragavendran bt Sivasangari Subramaniam (MAS) 11-8 11-8 5-11 11-5; Vanessa Raj (MAS) bt Tanvi Khanna 11-5 11-2 11-2.
