Salvia stands out on uneventful day

One down with two to play, Wendy Salvia was staring defeat in the face.

Then she bagged a hole-in-one at 17, won on 18, and snatched victory at the death in the first round of the Bermuda Amateur Match Play Championships at Mid Ocean Club yesterday.

Salvia's 1up win over Gladys Chambaz, and Shirley Leach's downing of women's number two seed Kathy Lloyd-Hines by the same margin, were the only results of note on an otherwise uneventful day when all the favourites progressed largely untroubled into today's second round.

Jarryd Dillas, Nick Mansell and Dr. Robert Vallis all completed regulation victories over their opponents, with Vallis the most dominating in his 7&6 defeat of Ian Page.

Defending champion Dillas beat Jose Luis Gerardo 5&3, and faces Chris Carvill today after Cavill beat Rick Bartlett 5&4. Mansell meanwhile saw off Teddy Terceira 4&2 and takes on Richard Schreiner in the quarterfinals.

Bermuda's Island Games skipper Camiko Smith will be up against Nicholas Torrance in the final match in the championship flight.

It was a similar story in the ladies championship, where Ebonie Burgess beat up on Carol Jones 7&5 and will now face defending champion Katrin Burnie today.

The winner of that match is likely to fancy their chances of reaching the final, while former champion Tariqah Waliraam is still in the mix.

Having beaten Sandy Hutchings 3&2 yesterday, Walikraam comes up against Linda Down in today's matches.
