Horncastle Squash Club saw their lead at the top of Division One in the Lincolnshire League cut after a defeat against fourth placed Lincoln University.
Horncastle’s line-up, which featured twins Daniel and Katie Wells, produced a battling performance but their opponents just managed to come out on top.
Katie faced a tough test and lost her three games by a narrow margin.
Daniel won his first game but then lost the next three after what proved to be a great exhibition from two in-form players.
Rob Cunningham was also involved in a tight contest. He lost the first game but took the spoils in the next three to at least give Horncastle some reward for their sterling efforts.
