Bear River 6,

West Campus 3

Cameron Lewis, at No. 2 boys singles, clinched the victory for the Bruins by winning 6-3, 4-6, 6-4.

Miki Kono, the No. 1 girl, won 6-1, 6-0, and Katherine Erickson won 6-1, 6-3 at No. 2.

In boys doubles the No. 1 team of Rick Fowler and Pat Miller won 10-6, and at No. 2 Alex Fischer and Andrew Thorpe won 10-2.

Aleah Madsen and Ashley Lowe, the No. 2 girls doubles team, won in a 7-5 tiebreaker.

The win was necessary for Bear River (8-3) to stay in the playoff race. If the Bruins win in a 3:30 p.m. contest today at Colfax they will likely force a tiebreaker with the same Falcons for the second spot in the Pioneer Valley League.

BearRiver defeated WestCampus 8-1 in an earlier match this season.
