February 28, 2014 (ISN) – The Semi-Finals of the 2014 CCAA National Badminton Championships were played on Friday afternoon at NAIT Gym. As expected, the level of badminton was fantastic with a berth in the National Finals on the line.

In the Men’s Doubles division the top seeded team of Robb & Thompson, representing the PACWEST, defeated the OCAA squad of D’Agostino & Moslemi. Robb & Thompson’s competition in the finals will be the PACWEST side of Chan & Leung, who defeated the ACAC team of Ko & Perry. Both of these semi-final matchups were extremely exciting, each going to 3 sets. This all PACWEST final is shaping up to be a fantastic showdown.

The Men’s Singles final pits the top 2 players of the round robin against each other. Both NAIT’s Lei Chen (ACAC) and PACWEST’s Matthew Chan were able to advance to the national final in straight sets. Chen got past OCAA’s Owen Kurvits (21-17; 21-13). While Chan topped OCAA’s Ryan Chow (21-0; 21-14).

The Women’s Doubles finals will feature a rematch of a tight round robin game. Top ranked Hall & Lim (OCAA) will reach the finals after beating Delacerna & Liu (OCAA) in straight sets. In the final they will face 2nd ranked Lau & Yu (ACAC), who advance in straight sets over Kwee & Young (PACWEST).

The Women’s Singles final will be a matchup of the two highest ranked players from the round robin. NAIT’s Yang Sun advanced to the finals in straight sets after defeating OCAA’s Cindy Fu. Sun has yet to drop a set in the tournament. Her competition in the final will be PACWEST’s Kathleen Lougheed, who advanced to the finals in a 3 set marathon over OCAA’s Yan Zhou.

The Mixed Doubles final will also feature the two top ranked teams from the preliminary round. Lau & Wong (OCAA) advanced over Mcguire & Tetlow (ACAA) in straight sets, they have yet to lose a match this tournament. Also advancing to the finals was the PACWEST duo of Choi & Jang, who advanced over their fellow PACWEST squad Chung & Chong.
