The Dragons were downed by the Mustangs of Milton Academy yesterday in Milton, Massachusetts, by the score of 0-7. The score, however, is deceiving, as the boys put up strong fights throughout the lineup, especially when singles play began.

Of note, #’s 4-6 played particularly strongly, with Ethan Ma ’21 at the #4 singles spot, winning a tough first set in a tiebreaker and losing a heck of a third set ten-point tiebreaker in dramatic fashion, 12-14! Ethan fought off multiple match points in the breaker, breaking serve and allowing himself to continue to compete for the win. At #5, co-captain Ridgely Kelly ’19 won a tough first set, playing an aggressive style of tennis. He dropped a tough second and, like Ethan, battled through a highly contested third set ten-point tiebreaker, before falling to his opponent, 6-10. At #6, Linus Maurer ’21 continues to put together an impressive campaign, fighting his way back in the first set to even things at four games apiece before losing a long game 4-5 to lose the set. In the second, Linus again battled in a back-and-forth style with his opponent, before losing a deuce-point decider to get broken at 4-4, sealing the match for his opponent who went on to serve it out. It was a good experience for Linus, who is new to the lineup, as he is sure to face more quality opponents and find himself in tight situations!

The boys will be home on the Hilltop on Saturday, taking on league opponent Lawrence Academy. Match time is set for 4:15 p.m.
