Utrecht and Victoria pull clear as Squashtime close in on Frans Otten

Round seven of the Dutch Women PSL is behind us and now there are only two contenders left. Or are there … ?

Squash Utrecht fortified their top position, beating ‘Meersquash 12-2 as Victoria Rotterdam dropped two points in their match against Almere.

The difference is only three points and in the remainder of the league they will not meet each other again. Both teams however will face Frans Otten Stadium and Squashtime Eindhoven, who theoretically could still make it to the top position in the last three matches and could line up very competitive teams.

Big match of the evening was between Squashtime and Frans Otten Stadium and Milou van der Heijden secured the win for Squashtime in the very last game of the last match. Both teams are now 18 points behind Squash Utrecht so a comeback would be nothing less than spectacular and heroic, but there are still 36 points to fight for for every team.

Also Squashtime had to endure a chastening 0-12 defeat against Squash Utrecht, which could spark a reaction in the return fixture.

Preview :

Women’s round 7 (of 10) is upon us and top four teams are separated by just 16 points.

Frontrunner Squash Utrecht is facing ‘Meersquash in a very tricky away match. They are stronger on paper, but ‘Meersquash has a squad of fierce fighters so anything could happen.

Eyecatcher of the evening will without a doubt be the match between Renske Huntelaar and Alicia Mead. The 15-year-old, who just last weekend surprised friend and foe last weekend by taking the Dutch national title, is known to take on anyone without respecting their name or status.

Second match of the evening is between Victoria Rotterdam and Squash Almere. By the looks of it Victoria is probably up for an easy evening, but they’ll have to be sharp because dropping points could be deadly in this stage of the league.

Match of the evening is between Squashtime Eindhoven and Frans Otten Stadium. Eindhoven theoretically has a chance to rejoin the top of the league and line up with Tesni Murphy (formerly known as Evans).

Frans Otten however has Salma Hany making her debut so the crowd in Eindhoven will be treated to an absolute world class match. In position two it’s 6-time Dutch champion Milou van der Heijden versus PSA-51 Cindy Merlo, which might very well turn out to be an epic battle, especially because it is probably the decider as well.

Again, lots to fight for in the seventh round so every reason to tune tonight at Squash Bond TV 19:30h GMT+1 …
