Indian girls blank South Africa

Wroclaw (Poland), July 23 (IANS) Indian girls, seeded sixth, blanked South Africa 3-0 in their first match in Group C of the World Junior Women's Team Squash Championships here.

Wroclaw (Poland), July 23 — Indian girls, seeded sixth, blanked South Africa 3-0 in their first match in Group C of the World Junior Women's Team Squash Championships here.

Sachika Ingale, who finished highest amongst Indians in the individual championships, defeated Makgosi Peloakgosi 11-2, 11-5, 5-11, 11-9, in the first singles Monday.

Harshit Kaur Jawanda overcame Megan Page 11-8, 12-10, 5-11, 11-6, in the next match and Lakshya Ragavendran defeated Kacey-Leigh Dodd 12-14, 11-6, 11-4, 11-4, for a 3-0 verdict.

Ingale got off to a great start, dropping just seven points in the first two games and looked on course for an easy 3-0 win. However, Ingale twisted her knee in the third and took a three-minute medical time out. The Indian was distracted on her return and lost the third 5-11.

Though Ingale was not her fluent self in the fourth game, she managed to work her opponent around to win the game 11-9 and put India 1-0 ahead.

In the battle of the spearheads, Jawanda let the nerves get the better of her and did not play to her potential. Page took full advantage to run Jawanda close, threatening to take the second game.

The Indian clung on to win the second but lost the third before recovering in time to win the fourth and give India the tie.

In the inconsequential final match, Raghavendran started aggressively but found the tin or hit the centre of the court to allow Dodd easy points. The Indian realised her folly, reined in the aggression and played a controlled game to win the next three games and seal a 3-0 win for the Indians.

India will play third seeds England in their second tie.

The results:

Group C: India beat South Africa 3-0 (Sachika Ingale bt Makgosi Peloakgosi 11-2, 11-5, 5-11, 11-9; Harshit Kaur Jawanda bt Megan Page 11-8, 12-10, 5-11, 11-6; Lakshya Ragavendran bt Kacey-Leigh Dodd 12-14, 11-6, 11-4, 11-4).

Soma frames

First a rave, I have been rising a b-side mtb frame for the most part of this year and like it so much I ordered a road frame as well to have my 'pigeon pair'.   Now a rant, my frame is AWOL thanks to the post office.   Another rave, I have decided to order another one and arrange the airfreight myself with a proper airline and a quick transit time. The costs as you can imagine are staggering so have decided to bring in a few extra frames to share with South Af ...
