LONE Northern rep Tige Young created a major upset after beating former champion Andrew McGoon in Squash Fiji's Fintel/Kidanet-sponsored tournament on Wednesday night.

The Savusavu player defeated former national champion McGoon by 3-1 in the A-grade men's competition at Defence Club in Suva.

Tournament co-ordinator Isimeli Cerelala said Young had proven to be a giant killer in the early stage of the competition.

"Tige is a very hard and aggressive player. He is very fit and retrieves the ball from all angles," Cerelala said.

"McGoon is a former champion who is making a comeback in the sport."

In the other feature matches played on the opening day of the tournament on Wednesday, Chris Yee defeated Devan Kumar by 3-0 in the men's C-grade while the only female in that grade, Mia Cusack overcame Tade Lala by similar score.

"The competition is expected to get tougher as we progress into the finals," Cerelala said.

The finals will be held tomorrow.
