Christchurch Boys High
Conquers Corren In Christchurch Climax
prevailed over experience in the Doubledot Media Christchurch Boys
High School Open in New Zealand where 21-year-old local hero Paul
Coll upset 39-year-old top seed Mike Corren in the final of
the PSA World Tour Challenger 5 squash event at Burnside
Squash Club in Christchurch.
the indefatigable Australian who already has four Tour titles to his
name this year, was celebrating the 68th final of his career just a week
after winning the North Coast Open on home soil to cement his
status as the oldest ever winner of a Tour title.
Indeed, the favourite opened up a two-game lead over Christchurch-based
Coll and looked to be heading to a successful defence of the title.
world No99 Coll, buoyed by packed partisan crowd, bounced back to win
the third after saving two match-balls, then take the next two games to
record a popular 6-11, 9-11, 13-11, 11-9, 11-5 triumph after 76 minutes.
sweet revenge for the rising New Zealand squash star who was beaten by
the world number 72 in the semi-finals of the City of Perth
International Challenge earlier this year.
win marks Coll's second Tour title success in his second final - but his
maiden PSA triumph on home soil!
