WEST POTOMAC HS: 4
Lake Braddock took down West Potomac this afternoon in a thriller, 5-4. After singles, the match was split 3-3. Kunc (3) came out on fire for the Bruins, leading the way with his 10-0 win. Em (5) wasn't far behind, and Lorn got in the lineup at 6, also coming away with a win. Close matches for Renteria(2) and Justus(4), but WP came out on top for those.
In doubles, Kunc continued his barrage with partner Renteria, both unrelenting in their attack on the net. The senior co-captains threw down at 2 dubs, coming out with a great performance and 10-5 win, and it was now up to Justus/Teasley (3) and Truong/Em (1) to get the final point. As the clock struck 7, the fun was just beginning. Justus/Teasley had started off strong, with a 5-2 lead, but WP hung around and proved difficult to put away. WP was able to erase the early deficit and came back to win it, 11-9. Meanwhile, down on the 1st court, Truong/Em were in a battle of their own. The score was tight, and as the Bruins were falling behind on court 3, Truong/Em pulled out a break and hold to go up 8-7, taking the lead for the first time in the match. A few chances to close it out ensued, but the matchup was destined for a tiebreaker from the start. With both teams lined up on the fences, Truong/Em put up a terrific performance in the tiebreaker, securing the win for the Bruins. Good win for the Bruins, who head to Annandale next on Thursday.
