On the windiest day of the season thus far, the Minutemen and Aztecs had more than each other to contend with, as balls swerved heavily from left to right and right to left, balls heading out landing in, and balls heading in landing out; one lob actually landed in the next court.
It was hard to call it enjoyable for either team, as it was often simply a matter of who could guess where the ball was heading the best. For today, that distinction went to the Minutemen, who were able to stay focused on the task at hand.
The Minutemen forged out to a 6-0 lead after the first round, and were ahead 11-0 with the final set of the round going to the Aztecs, when they defeated #3 doubles Kenny Cho and Tim Huang, 7-5, after leading, 5-1. Cho and Huang forged a furious comeback to tie the set, 5-5, before succumbing.
The two teams square off again tomorrow at PHS in the second half of a back to back set.
