What a battle for second place Friday evening’s match was. Trailing the Warriors by 1.50 game points in the standings, the Renegades beat the Warriors 4.50-3.00 to tie for second place. With each of the four Battle Court squads having only one match left, the Chargers have secured first place for the second time in Battle Court history.
The Renegades scored 4.50 points by winning all three singles matches with Aratz over Nicolas (6-5, 0-6, 6-5), CRB defeating Bradley (6-1, 1-6, 6-3) and Ben beating Kubala (6-5, 6-4). The Renegades picked up 1.50 points with a doubles win by Correa/Aratz coming back to defeat Bueno/Julen (4-6, 6-0, 6-2).
The Warriors bright spot was with Inaki teaming with Kubala to defeat Goixerri/RonRon (6-2, 5-6, 6-4) and later, Inaki teaming with Nicolas to hand Goixerri/RonRon their second doubles loss of the evening (6-0, 6-2).
Monday’s and Tuesday’s matches will be just as exciting as the second place teams will try to break the tie with the Warriors playing the Chargers on Monday and the Renegades taking on the Cyclones on Tuesday.
