Manta, Domino’s win squash league titles

The Squash Yukon league wrapped up with some close battles in one division and some less close battles in the other last week.

The Squash Yukon league wrapped up with some close battles in one division and some less close battles in the other last week.

Manta defeated Chilkoot Chiropractic 15-14 to claim the Division 1 title on April 18 at Better Bodies Whitehorse.

The pressure was on Manta No. 1 Sam Penner in the final match. Penner had to win three straight games against Chilkoot No. 1 Jane Bell to secure the win for his team, which he did.

Manta’s Will Chetcuti also produced a 3-0 win in his final match, over Chilkoot’s Gary Tanner.

Chilkoot Chiropractic placed first in the regular season, two spots ahead of Manta.

Ecological Logistics & Research Ltd. took third place — also by a score of 15-14 — with a win over Yukon Tree Services.

Glen Rudman and Dylan Letang won for Ecological.

The Division 2 finals on April 20 weren’t so tight.

Domino’s Pizza defeated Earl’s Kitchen + Bar 23-16 to take the title.

Domino’s sliced up first place winning three out of five matches. Katie Mercier defeated sub player Eric Johnson 3-0; Kevin Hill went 3-2 over D’Arcy Hill; and Leif Austad topped Kashif Zafar 3-0.

Home team Better Bodies, who tied Domino’s for first in the regular season, beat The Electrical Shop 18-11 for third place.

Brenna MacPhail, Muhammad Javed and Sean Lee won for Better Bodies.
