Burgess Hill 2 Star June 2013
Two Golds For Silva!
59 players took part in the second Burgess Hill 2 Star at the Triangle
Leisure Centre on 8th June. There were five age groups.
This was a round robin group of six players and won by second seed, Louis
Price (Av). However he had to pull out all the stops twice to defeat both Nikit
Sajiv (Sy) and Felix Thomis (Bk) both by two points in the fifth set. Thomis
defeated Sajiv for second place and Sajiv came third. Scarlett O’ Neil (K) came
Top seed, Reece Chamdal (Ox), dominated this 16 player event and won
without conceding any ends. He beat Jago Manning-McGeorge (Sx) in the quarters,
Will McCarthy (K) in the semis and second seed, Ryan Darwen (Sx) in the final.
Darwen beat Jacob Evans (Sx) in the quarters 3-0 and Thomis in the semis 3-1.
McCarthy beat Thomis 3-1 for the bronze medal. Martines Angeliev (Mi) beat
Greenhouse George Green club mate, Spencer Cunningham (Mi) in the final of the
consolation event.
In this 21 player event again the no. 1 seed won. This was Olly Tyndall
(Gs). He beat Ali Cangir (E), Jamie Rosen (Mi) and Ben Worley (Sx) to get to the
final. Worley did snatch a set, but lost 3-1. On the other side of the draw,
Dexter Sherin (Sx), the second seed, made his way to the final with straight
sets wins over Leon La (Mi), Jack Stockdale (E) and Yaj Vashee (Ha). Tyndall won
the final 3-0. Vashee won the bronze medal match over Worley 3-0. Having beaten
fifth seed, Alistair Smith (Sx) in the group stage, Luke Gallagher (Sx), went on
to win the consolation event, beating Rokas Dedinas (E) in the final.
Second seed, Kleber Silva (E) won this 24 player event. He progressed to
the final defeating Vashee 3-1 and Sherin 3-0. Sherin had a good win over third
seed, Josh Gallen (Bk) in the quarters 11-9 in the fifth. Top seed, Tyndall had
a more difficult route to the final overcoming Will Goodstone (Sx) 3-1 and then
Gus Thomis (Bk) 12-10 in the fifth. Thomis had himself come through a close
five-setter, beating Regan O’Neil (K) 11-9 in the fifth in the quarters. The
final was an easy win for Silva 3-0. Thomis had a third consecutive five setter
in the bronze medal match Vs Sherin and perhaps his greater experience of five
setters on the day pulled him through, as he won. Numayr Malik (E) beat Rosen in
the consolation final.
Silva again won this event, this time from the no. 1 seed position.
However, he did not have it as easy this time. In the quarters, he beat the
luckless O’Neil in five sets, then Gallen 3-0 in the semis and lastly Gus Thomis
18-16 in the fifth in the final! Thomis must be getting very used to five
setters, as he won his semi final 14-12 in the fifth vs second seed, Lucas
Papantoniou (Mi). Papantoniou had narrowly avoided defeat in the quarters to
Andrew Jackson (Sy), winning 14-12 in the decider. He beat Gallen in the
third/fourth place play-off 3-1. Ben Towers (K) beat Malik in the consolation
final 3-1.
