Walker, Thomson siblings contest CASA junior finals

first_img In contrast, Walker had to turn up the firepower to stop the indefatigable, Alexander Cheeks of Guyana. The reigning All Jamaica Under-19 boys’ champion took the first game relatively easy, but then Cheeks roared back to give him a run for his money. However, with the home crowd cheering him on, Walker prevailed 11-4, 11-8, 11-7 and will now play for the title. The Thomson siblings will now contest the finals in their respective age groups, which are scheduled for today at Liguanea Club. Lukas will face rising star, Jaydon Williams of the OECS, while Savannah will be up against Sigourney Williams of Trinidad and Tobago. Tournament Chairman Gill Binnie said: “We are really pleased to have three Jamaican players in the finals, and they each stand a very strong chance of taking their first regional titles, so we’ll be coming out in a show of force to cheer them on.” Siblings Savannah and Lukas Thomson and rising star Jonathan Walker stormed into the finals of the 2018 JN General Insurance Caribbean Area Squash Association’s (CASA) Junior Championships after semi-final wins yesterday. Playing in his first regional championship, young Lukas Thomson breezed through his Under-11 semi-final match, beating Jayden George of the Organisation of the Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) 11-4, 11-3, 11-0. With the win, the feisty youngster has moved on to the finals of the competition without dropping a game. In the same vein, Lukas’ older sister, All Jamaica Under-13 girls’ champion, Savannah, convincingly defeated Rebekah Nichols of Barbados 11-8, 11-4, 11-1 in the semi-finals. Thomson, who is also contesting her first Caribbean championship, has had an easy run so far, posting straight game wins. UPPING THE FIREPOWERlast_img read more
