A Heavy defeat

A Heavy Defeat

After last week’s convincing win, this week LDS suffered a catastrophic defeat which all but ended any hope of a realistic title challenge. Late injury and illness decimated the Luton and Dunstable squash team this week. With only 3 players out of 5 fielded against a strong Open University side it was always going to be a tough night.


As expected number 1 Steve Davies however, put the first points of the night on the board for LDS with a 3-0 win over Ben Shakespeare.


That was as good as it got though as youngster Sean Davies at number 2 found life hard going against Wayne James and lost 3-0 to end LDS hopes of a miracle win on the night.


Playing well above his usual position the visitor’s Steve Wells was up against the experienced Dave Gibson. Wells fought bravely, but ultimately Gibson was simply too good and too experienced to offer any relief.


A bad evening all round for the side resulted in a 4-1 defeat. A convincing win next week is now essential to hang onto any hopes of a title challenge.
