HARTFORD, Conn. -- The Bates men's squash team disposed of rival Bowdoin 7-2 on Saturday afternoon in the quarterfinals of the NESCAC Men's Squash Championship, setting up Saturday night's semifinal match against No. 2 seed Williams.

The Ephs prevailed in that match 8-1, setting up a third-place match on Sunday pitting fourth-seeded Middlebury and Bates at 12 p.m. at Trinity. Bates edged Middlebury 5-4 on Jan. 21 at Yale.

The Bobcats (15-8), seeded third in the tournament, received wins from seniors Will Katz (Bronxville, N.Y.) and Nick Echeverria (Washington, D.C.) at the top two positions on the ladder to pace the team against Bowdoin.

In the Williams (12-8) match, sophomore Walter Cabot (Dover, Mass.) won the lone point for the Bobcats, defeating Jared Zuckerman handily in three games at the ninth spot on the ladder.
