4.5 Men Match Results


Thanks to Dave Werner, for the captain’s update

Simsmore Men’s 4.5 is off to a tough start after dropping their fourth
match to a strong (and young!) Manchester team; it looked they had one
player over 30 today. Nevertheless there was some solid play top to
Lukas Hovorka had little trouble at #1 singles, winning 6-0, 6-2. At #2
singles, Ted Mathias worked hard but lost to their undefeated player, 6-3,
7-6. Werner and Carlson were overmatched by a strong #1 doubles team,
6-1, 6-1. And though Wright and Schmidt came out firing and posted a 6-0
first set, their opponents regrouped and won the next two, 6-3, 6-2. At
#3 doubles, Policella and Jonske also won the first set, 7-5, but were not
able to hold on, as Manchester came back to win 6-2, 6-2.

The team will regroup for their away match versus Newington in two weeks.
