On the other court, Krish Bhavnani '22 (#6) also went down 2-0, but steamed through the third game. Bhavnani fought off game balls at 10-8 and was attacking fiercely before he got edged out 15-13 in the fourth game. At 2-0 Bantams, Wyatt Khosrowshahi '21 (#3) played an All-American caliber player and was defeated in three games.
David Pincus '20 (#8) showcased quality squash, taking the first game but was outmatched and lost in four games. Carl Shuck '20 (#2) challenged his opponent to a tie-breaker in the first game but lost 12-10 and was beaten the next two games. A.J. Solecki '21 (#7) played a strong Bantam and had opportunity in the first game but the first game slipped away.

Jacob Bassil '20 (#5) played excellent squash testing his opponent to a nail-biting fifth game that was neck and neck before his opponent pulled away to close out the match. Williams Means '20 (#4) was the last match to finish and was playing better than the score line suggests, having a shot at taking the third game but was not able to convert the opportunity.
The Ephs will compete in the NESCAC Championship next weekend at Middlebury College.
