Top four split by just ten points

Tension in the Women’s DPSL is reaching the boiling point as four teams are leading the table with only 10 points between them with just four matches ahead.

The Big game of the evening was between Victoria Rotterdam and Squash Utrecht, who started in first and second places. Both teams were lined-up for a win, but in the last match of the evening Rana Ismail decimated Elise Romba, securing the win for Squash Utrecht.

In their away match against Squash Almere, Squashtime Eindhoven did what they were supposed to do and took the full points, consolidating their position  the top of the table.

At Amsterdam Frans Otten Stadium needed a big win as well to keep sight of the top position, but they conceded two points against ‘Meersquash due to an Emilia Korhonen loss to Ana Munos.

With league standings as they are, Frans Otten Stadium’s hopes are hanging by a thread, but they are still in the race. Victoria, Squash Utrecht and Squashtime are separated by only 6 points and with some spicy head-2-heads coming up, the season finale promises to be very explosive.

Preview :

It’s round six for the Dutch Ladies PSL tonight, and four teams are within range the top position.

Unbeaten Victoria Rotterdam might have a comfortable lead, but they’re up against Squash Utrecht in an away match and they are met with force.

On paper Squash Utrecht even has the upper hand in al three matches and could even take the top position in the league opening up the race for the gold for Frans Otten Stadium and Squashtime Eindhoven as well.

They will however need to take full points against ‘Meersquash Hoofddorp and Squash Almere and that is easier said than done, so the heat is on.

Should everything turn out as the odds predict, we’ll have four teams within a range of only five points creating an apotheosis for the season finale. But would someone fold under pressure – teams could easily root themselves out as a credible contender …

All the reason to tune in Wednesday 19:30 GMT+1 at Squash Bond TV to see the action.
