In their perennial opening match of the season, the Bears took on Phillips Andover in what always has been a tough first match. Playing in the new Sydney Center, the Fessy boys played very well, earning as a team more match and game wins than in the past three years combined! Earning wins for Fessy were Carter B., Kyle H., and Justin G. at the 11, 12, and 13 spots, respectively. In the top eight matches, Fessy had a strong showing, highlighted by Hudson P.'s five game battle at the first position, and several four-games matches by Luis L., Taku N., and Jiho K. It was a great way to start the season against some great competition, including some former Fessy players! The Bears look forward to their next match at home against Squashbusters.
