1. Bazack/Holt d. Tuck/Elliott (HC) 6-4, 6-1; 2. Catron/Jarvis d. Strader/Tepper (HC) 6-0, 6-0; 3. Joppich/Dreher d. Good/Griffin (HC) 6-0, 6-2.


Yale Waller d. Michael Jackson (HC) 8-5; Colin Waller d. Allen Scott (HC) 8-3; Doubles, Matt Hannah/Jessie Felberg d. Jackson/Scott (HC) 8-1.

Halifax saw some improvement, but not enough.

“We played better as a team against PH than we did the first time, which is always a positive. Ralph continued his solid season at the one spot, and played more consistant against Bazack than he did at home. And Strader played his best match of the year in singles. He fell behind 3-0 in the beginning of the 1st set, but played smarter as the match progressed and finished strong. I can’t remember the last time we won at the 1 and 2 spot against PH, so that was certainly a positive today,” said Coach David Riddle.
