The first place Cyclones took a 4.00-3.50 game day victory over the Chargers on Tuesday evening.
Earning 3.50 points for the Chargers, they had doubles win from Jairo/Roque over Williams/Manny (6-4, 6-2) and singles wins with Spinner beating Ikeda (4-6, 6-2, 6-2) and Benny coming back against Carballo (3-6, 6-1, 6-4).
Ikeda took the first set, but Spinner gained momentum and never let up for an impressive win. Likewise, Carballo had great control and excellent play to win the first set (6-3), but Benny battled back (6-1, 6-4) in the second and third sets for the win. Benny ended the match with a powerful low running chula.
