20-Nov, Semis:
Masters wins Movember boast
James Stephenson reports

The crown was anxious for the two players both looking for their first 10K win on the Professional Squash Tour.

The players started cautiously feeling each other out with some channel games down the left wall. Peter Creed was getting the better of the exchanges by keeping the court closed, and making sure his crosscourts were wide enough to avoid the volley of the tall Englishman Josh Masters. With a 5-3 lead, his serve to the backhand was close to the wall but Josh went after it anyway for a perfect crosscourt nick roller. This put Peter into cautious mode and stole his focus as the Brit quickly ran up 7 unanswered points and built confidence in his ability to put the ball in from anywhere. Creedy saved one game ball but Masters would not be denied the first game.

The Second was level pegging to 4-all then Peter began to open the court and give Josh plenty of opportunities. This time Josh was finding the tin, rather than the nick and Creed ran away with 7 straight points to level the score. The third was similar to the first, in that the backhand channel game was edging out in the Welshman's 7-3 down, Masters began to let his racket go again and ran 6 straight points with extreme skill. Peter found his focus and was able to claw back three points of his own to give himself the first game ball. Josh got himself out of trouble and was able to get the next 3 game balls himself, only to be thwarted by the feisty campaigner. At 14-13, Creed was rewarded with another game ball after an amazing rally of more than 40 shots. He was unable to finish there, and two tins of his own gave Masters the 2-1 lead.

The crowd was extremely eager to continue the show into a fifth game. From 5-all Josh gave himself a 2 point cushion and became extremely difficult to get around and catch up. Creed was having trouble with his short game and hitting trickle boasts and crosscourt instead of counting on his bread-and-butter straight drop. As soon as he saw a glimpse of levelling the score, Josh shut the door all 3 times. With his first match ball, he played down the backhand wall until Creed left one a little short and he whipped in a boast that even on a full stretch and dive, Peter was a fraction of an inch away from getting before the second bounce.

Congratulations to Joshua Masters, the 2016 Sunrise Foods International November Boast Champion!!

19-Nov, Semis:
Creed and Masters through to final
James Stephenson reports

Peter Creedy came hunting tonight. Mike McCue had had an easy draw so far and would be tested tonight. Peter showed patience in the first two games , waiting for the Canadian to break. Mike's confidence had waned as Peter picked up virtually every ball, drops that had been winners the two rounds before, were shot back at his body and down the line.

The third showed a lack of concentration from the Welshman. Two attempts to fish for strokes were unrewarded and finally his crosscourt nick made him the first point of the game. He regained his focus and finished it out comfortably in three games.

In the second semi-final Andrew Schnell started well and took a 6-1 lead with Josh Masters looking unsettled. The Englishman found his range at this point and won 10 of the next 11 rallies to take the lead with authority.

Masters continued to assert in the second and began reading Schnell out of the front corners while sprinkling in some nice attacking variations. The Canadian was unable to capitalize when he finally did get a loose ball and made some untimely errors, going down 2-0.

Despite the deficit, Andrew managed another good start in the third game and looked poised to peg one back. Josh cranked up the aggression and worked his way back from 0-7 with some spectacular cross court nicks and trickle boasts. After forcing a tiebreak, a lucky bounce and yet another deceptive boast booked him a spot in the final.
