Comeback Attempt Falls Short as No. 1 Trinity Holds Off No. 3 Yale 5-4
NEW HAVEN, Conn. - No. 1 Trinity held off a comeback attempt by No. 3 Yale in men's squash Wednesday night at the Brady Squash Center, edging the Bulldogs 5-4. Trailing 4-2 entering the final wave of matches, the Bulldogs tied things up thanks to victories at No. 1 (3-1 by senior Neil Martin) and No. 4 (3-2 by freshman Thomas Dembinski). But Trinity was able to secure the win with a 3-0 victory at the No. 7 spot by Moustafa Hamada.
Yale's victories earlier in the night came at No. 5 (3-2 by freshman Kah Wah Cheong) and No. 6 (3-2 by freshman Liam McClintock). That gave the Bulldogs a clean sweep by freshmen on Court 9 at the Brady Squash Center, as Dembinski capped that stretch by beating Juan Vargas 3-2 in the final match on that court.
Yale returns to action on Friday, hosting St. Lawrence at 6:00 p.m.
