Force Ripe comes of age


Share post:

Davien “Force Ripe” Taylor has matured and come of age.

The unseeded Taylor produced the upset of the Barbados Public Workers’ Cooperative Credit Union’s Monarchs Of The Court Tournament when he ousted No.3 seed Curtis Jones in straight games 21-18, 21-16 in Sunday’s quarter-finals at the Big Rock Arena, Spring Garden.

The attacking Taylor will now have a semi-final showdown tomorrow against No. 2 seed Julian “Michael Jackson” White, who was in no mood for a thriller as he handed the stylist Dario Hinds a 21-9, 21-14 slaughtering.

Women’s No.2 seed Sheldene Walrond and Rachel Smith also set up their semi-final clash tomorrow, despite a few bright sparks from their beaten opponents. (EZS)
