Martlets Defeat Salisbury

The Martlets hosted the Crimson Knights from Salisbury for their home opener of the season. They jumped to an early lead as Will Henry ‘26 dominated his opponent in straight sets, yielding a total of a mere ten points. Chip Genung ‘25 started off slow, but found his footing and rebounded nicely to win the second game 12-10. The third game was back and forth and could have gone either way, but Genung couldn’t hold on for the win, and ended up losing the fourth and final game as well. With the match now tied at one game apiece, Mathias Seber ‘26 put Westminster ahead by sweeping his opponent with steady and consistent play. However, the lead didn’t last long, as Elijah Bates ‘24, after winning his first game 13-11, subsequently lost his rhythm and the next three games. With the odds taking the court, Harvey DeMovick ’24 and Allen Zhou ‘23 gave the home team a little breathing room, both players demonstrating good length and shot placement. The match of the day belonged to Phil Zhang ‘24, playing his first squash match ever, having just joined the team a few days ago. Zhang kept his opponent off balance with deep, unreturnable serves, losing his composure a bit in the third game, but then regaining it to finish out his match in four, and clinch the match overall for Westminster. Meanwhile, Johnathan Li ‘24, having missed the last two practices due to illness, found himself in a seesaw battle at the number one spot against a very fine Salisbury player who tracked everything down. Somehow, Li prevailed in five games in a courageous effort.
