Australia’s Mike Corren collected his third successive City of Perth International squash title after beating England’sLewis Walters in the final of the PSA World Tour Challenger 5 event in its sixth year at Terrace Squash Centre inPerth, Western Australia.

The top seed made the final after fighting back from a game behind in the semi-finals against compatriot Justin Beard, the No4 seed.

Walters also had a battle on his hands against a fellow countryman in the other semi – where the second seed was two-love down before coming back to beat seventh seed Adam Murrills in five games.

But Corren arrived in Perth fresh from success in last week’s NT Open on home soil – and netted five PSA Tour titles in his home country in 2011.

Walters took the opening game, but favourite Corren reclaimed the advantage to close out the match 6-11, 11-8, 11-8, 11-9 after 62 minutes.

The win extends Corren’s formidable tally of PSA Tour titles to 39 from 56 final appearances.
