Seeds Scatter In Liberty Bell Open

Home hopes for success in the Women's Liberty Bell Open were boosted when US qualifier Amanda Sobhy upset sixth seed Elise Ng to reach the quarter-finals of the $11,000 WISPA World Tour squash event at Berwyn Squash & Fitness Club in Berwyn, USA

The 15-year-old from New York despatched experienced Hong Kong 27-year-old Ng 11-9, 12-10, 11-6 and will now face New Zealand's second seed Jaclyn Hawkes for a place in the last four.

Australian qualifier Heidi Mather also upset the form book by beating Dutch opponent Karen Kronemeyer, the No7 seed, 11-7, 11-7, 12-10.

But England's Lauren Siddall was the highest seed to fall.  The fifth seed from Yorkshire failed to exploit her first game advantage against Kylie Lindsay, going down to the New Zealander 7-11, 13-11, 11-7, 12-10.
