MARCUS SMITH CLAIMS
DARTMOUTH MUDBOWL CROWN
Unseeded Australian Marcus Smith displayed a great array of attacking
shots, all-court coverage and solid fitness to overcome qualifier Joey
Barrington in the final of the Dartmouth Mudbowl PSA Satellite Event.
Though he had to withstand
five game contests in the first round and the semis Smith was the stronger
of the two for the final on Sunday.
Joey Barrington was given
the iron man award having to play 6 matches in four days as well as suffering
through a bout of food poisoning. In the final the effort was there but
the legs gave out. He just wasn't able to match the constant pressure
