Senga Macfie of Edinburgh Sports Club had to come from two games down before beating Sabine Mackenzie (Bridge of Allan) to take the East women’s squash title at Colinton Castle.
By contrast, in the Open final, Alistair Mutch (Grange) maintained his record of never dropping a game when defeating the host club’s Chris Gray.
Earlier, Gray had survived a torrid five-game semi-final with Seigo Masudo (Edinburgh University).
The only seeding upset in the competition was provided by Brendan Forrester (Dunbar) who overcame David Morrison (Newlands) although Colin Grant (Watsonians) forced Jacques Laas (Edinburgh Sports Club) to pull out all the stops in an hour-long contest.
The men’s B event was won by Grange’s Matthew Bain.
