NB drops two
Pine City 6, North Branch 1
The Vikings took on Pine City on Thursday, August 29, and the perennially strong Dragon team came away with a 6-1 win.
“We played tough and put up a strong defense,” Head Coach Joel Santjer said.
Miaya got the only win for North Branch in singles, winning in straight sets 6-3, 6-1. Sophie and Hollie played tough in doubles, driving the opponents to go three sets, but were unable to break the Dragon's attack and lost 1-6, 6-4, 1-6.
“Even through the loss though, the team came away with positives from the match and ready to continue to push,” Santjer said.
Blaine 5, North Branch 2
The Vikes took on Blaine on Friday in a Section 7AA match. The weather was perfect and the action was intense as the two teams battled at nearly every position. Getting wins for North Branch were Miaya at second Singles, where she won in three sets, 7-5, 3-6, 6-1.
Also winning on the day were Sophie and Hollie at first Doubles. The pair also needed three sets to get the Victory, winning 6-4, 2-6, 6-4. Rachel and Chloe played extremely close in second doubles. They lost the first set by a service break, and then pushed the second set to a tiebreak. They couldn't find the attack when they needed to though, and lost 4-7 in the tiebreak. Overall it was an amazing day of tennis, where we pushed a good Blaine team to find answers.
