Team USA’s Todd Harrity and Mexico’s Alfredo Avila will contest the $15, 000 Wasatch Advisors Salt Lake City Open Saturday night at Squash Works in Utah.
The two-time U.S. champion and two seed recorded his second consecutive three-game victory to reach the final, defeating Finland’s Henrik Mustonen in thirty-one minutes.
“I thought it was a good match, ” Harrity said. “I’m really happy with how I played. I was keeping the pressure on and my attacking shots were good today. I was able to keep him behind me. The first game was really close so to get through that was great, and the second was another close one. Really happy to get through tonight.”
Harrity will take on Avila in what will be their second PSA Tour match up. Avila reached the final with a second consecutive five-game victory in the semifinals over New Zealand’s Martin Knight.
“Tomorrow will be another really tough match, ” Harrity said. “It’s been good that I’ve been able to take measured risks playing while ahead and it’s paid off. But he’s really fit, never seems to get tired and moves so well. We’ve played a few times before and they’ve gone both ways.”
The final takes place Saturday night at 6pm local time, 8pm ET. Follow live scores and view the draw on ww.usproseries.com/live.
