SQUASH – Ireland win bronze medal

Ireland’s women’s team had a super win over hosts Denmark this morning 2-1. Number 2 Aisling Blake was on first v Sally Skaarenborg. Playing some beautifully controlled squash Aisling was always in control.
She won 3-0 in some style. Irish number 1 Madeline Perry was on next v Line Hansen. Again it was the same story with Madeline playing some superb squash. Line however refused to go away and saved 3 game balls in the first game before going down 13-11. The next 2 games were tight enough, but Madeline using all her experience pulled away in each, to win them 11-9, 11-8.
With the bronze medal secured the 3rd tie was a dead rubber, however Carlow’s Ciara Moloney played Mathilide Laundsen. It was a short match with the Dane winning 2-0.
So a 3rd medal in 4 years for Ireland’s women’s squash team – a superb performance!
