HKFC Squash Section Makes History with Division 1 Double Championship Win in Intense Final Series05 May 2023
On Thursday, May 4th, the Hong Kong Squash Center witnessed an extraordinary performance by us, the Hong Kong Football Club (HKFC) Squash Section, as they clinched the Division 1 title in the Hong Kong Squash League Final Series. HKFC 1 beat KCC 1 with a score of 2-1, clinching our first-ever double championship win in Division 1 of the Hong Kong Squash League Final Series.
The highly anticipated match saw a packed crowd at the Hong Kong Squash Center, with supporters eagerly waiting to see their favourite players in action. The HKFC 1 team did not disappoint, as they put up a strong show against their opponents. The first match between Max Lee and former Hong Kong team member Chris Lo was a one-sided affair, with Max Lee winning 3-0 in straight games. The second match between Carlos Cornes and former Hong Kong junior team Lincoln Chan Wui Ki was a nail-biting affair. Carlos Cornes showed great determination and resilience by fighting back from 3-0 down in the fifth set to win 3-2, clinching the crucial second point for HKFC 1. The third match between Eric Ho and former Hong Kong U19 champion Robinson Law Yat Long was a closely contested affair. Unfortunately, Eric Ho injured his ankle in the third game and was forced to retire from the match.
The Ladies Division 1 Final saw HKFC L1A lose to KCC L1A with a score of 1-2. Hailey Wong, Renee Wu, and Yurisa Yeung fought hard but were unable to overcome their opponents. The absence of key players Tomato Ho and Heylie Fung, who are out for the World Championships and Japan 6k PSA Challenger, was felt by the team.
In the other divisions, HKFC Squash Section also put up a strong showing. In the Masters 3 category, the HKFC M3A team ultimately beat the HKFC M3B team with a score of 5-0, adding another layer of intensity to the "inner war" between two teams from our Squash Section. In the Masters 4 category, our HKFC M4 team beat Phoneix 3-2, with Martin Mrosek winning the decider.
The HKFC Squash Section were ecstatic with their Division 1 win, which was a result of their hard work and dedication. The team had been preparing for this match for weeks, and their efforts paid off in the end. The win also marks a historic moment for the club, as it is the first time that the HKFC Squash Section has won both the Division 1 title and the Hong Kong Squash League Final Series.
The HKFC Squash Section is now looking forward to the next season and is determined to defend its title. With a talented and motivated team, the club is confident that they can achieve even greater heights in the future.
