The 2nd Brunei Squash League resumed on Tuesday with the Hawks and National Stadium winning their respective matches.
Getting off the ground for the first time this year, two matches were contested at the Squash Centre of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex in Berakas.
The Hawks defeated the IPT Lions 3-1 in the first match, with Mohd Mohsin Khan taking down Huzairie Ali 3-0 in the first game to give the Hawks a 1-0 lead.
Rosman Roslin made it 2-0 for the Hawks when he cruised past Mohd Kamal Bakar 3-1.
