Bringing home the bacon was Keith Boyea, who topped the Over 55 segment, with an unbeaten run.

Boyea took care of Richard Starkey of the BVI in the quarter finals, then did the same to Barbadian David Foster in the semi finals, and finally humbled Barbados’ number one seed Orson Simpson in the title match.

But James Bentick did not go all the way, having to settle for the runner up spot, losing in the finals to Joe Kneipp of the host island. Kneipp is a former world number ten player.

Bentick defeated Paul Morris of the BVI in the quarter finals and set up the final berth when he got the better of Dion Anseim.

The other Vincentian to reach the last four was Collin Alexander, as his journey was to the semi finals of the 45 to 54 age group.

Alexander, after seeing off the BVI’s Toney Campbell and Steve Ollivierre of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, faltered against eventual winner John Holley of Trinidad and Tobago in the last four.

Holley, in the championship contest, ended the reign of Mark Sealey of Barbados.

The event, which attracted many of the Caribbean top masters Squash players, was sponsored by Meridian Construction Company and International Motors of the BVI. (RT)
