Christchurch Boys School Open 2012
25-30 Sep, New Zealand, $5k
Corren notches up another

Prolific South Australian Mike Corren notched up yet another PSA title with a hard-fought victory in the final of the Doubledot Media Christchurch Boys School Open in New Zealand.

Top seed Corren prevailed in a hard-fought encounter against second seeded Kiwi Evan Williams that went the full distance.
 
Williams got off to a flying start being up 7/1 in the first game before Corren fought back to square it 7/7 but Williams steadied to win first game. The next two games went to Corren with Williams making a few errors on the crucial points. Williams then fought back strongly and took a commanding lead of 6/2 in the fourthth, Corren wasn't able to close the gap and Williams took that game quite easily 11/3 to take it to a final game decider.

The fifth was a battle all the way with a number of long rallies and let calls. Corren had match ball at 10-9 but a no let tied the game right up at 10-10. Corren managed to take the victory with the next two points, a stroke call ending the match at 12/10.

The victory marks 38-year-old Corren's 43rd PSA title in 61 final appearances (out of 112 events played!), and his sixth success in 2012.

Corren and Williams to meet in final

Top seeds to meet in the final but it was not all easy going.

Mike Corren showed his experience to control parts of the match against Joseph Watts but Watts showed a lot of character to win 10 straight points to take the third 11/5 after being down 5/1.

He wasn't quite able to take it to five with Corren closing out the match 11/8 in the 4th.

The second semi was a hard fought battle taking 60 minutes with some very long rallies and great retrieving. The lefthanded Evan Williams hit some classy nicks and drops  particularly down his forehand side but Paul Coll stayed in the match taking the third
game.

The fourth was a see-saw battle all and could have gone either way, Williams finally prevailing 12/10 to take the match.


Top three seeds through to the semis


Top seed Mike Corren was forced to work very hard for his five game victory and looked to be carrying a slight injury niggle. Scott Gardiner had four match balls in the 5th (10-6 up) but couldn't convert them.

Second and third seeds Evan Williams and Paul Coll turned in very confident displays to win comfortably in three games each.

A slight upset as Joseph Watts played assured squash to edge out fourth seeded Josh Cardwell in what was a long three game match.
