South Africa & Germany Advance In Poland

Wed, 24 Jul 2013 07:06:07 +0000

Germany and South Africa upset the seedings on the second day of qualifying action in the WSF Women’s World Junior Team Championship, the biennial World Squash Federation event at the Hasta La Vista Club in the historic city of Wroclaw in Poland.

Kacey-Leigh Dodd led the way for South Africa in their Pool C tie against 11th seeds Japan. The 17-year-old battled back from 2/1 down to overcome Momoka Nakahira 11-4, 4-11, 11-13, 11-9, 11-4. After Satomi Watanabe levelled matters for Japan, Makgosi Peloakgosi - also 17 – clinched a 2/1 victory for the underdogs by beating Ayaka Shiraishi 11-1, 11-5, 11-9.

South Africa now take on Pool favourites England in a bid to secure an unexpected place in the quarter-finals. Former champions England recorded their second successive 3/0 win with a comfortable victory over sixth seeds India.

It was in Pool D that Germany upset Colombia, the 12th seeds. Second string Nele Hatschek put Germany into the lead with an 11-8, 11-9, 11-9 win over Laura Casallas - but Colombia immediately countered with a straight games win by squad number one Laura Tovar Perez.

A five-game decider saw Mareike Omlor edge out Natalia Londono 11-8, 11-4, 8-11, 4-11, 11-6 to boost Germany’s chances of a place in the last eight.
