Bemidji 4, EGF Senior High 3
East Grand Forks performed well in singles, but had trouble in doubles as Bemidji downed the Green Wave on Thursday in boys tennis.
"I'm not happy with how our doubles played today," said Senior High coach Kyle Hanson. "I can live with mistakes and I can live with the score. However, we've been working on movement and positioning for two weeks and it didn't carry over to the match. Too many old bad habits that I guess will take time to break.
"I was pleased with singles as they played well. Parker Anderson played a very consistent match. Blake Felch also did a great job of keeping the ball on the court and allowing his opponent to make the errors."
EGF 12, Bagley 0

"Willow Rynestad (Central's losing pitcher in the opener) deserved a better fate,'' Central coach Steve Olson said. "She threw well but our errors (four) hurt her. In the second game we started to string some hits together.''
