Falcons beat out Bruins
Two neighboring schools, Forest Lake Christian and Bear River, got together Wednesday afternoon for a tennis scrimmage with the Falcons coming out on top 5-4 with the deciding match coming down to the mixed doubles match.
Because Forest Lake Christian was missing a player, all doubles pairs were swapped leaving many of the players with a new partner. Bear River was also missing three of its girls players.
The combination of Ali Robinson and Johnny Lehmer (FLC) defeated Hannah Morehouse and Ricky Ricky Fowler (BR), 8-5 for the Falcon win.
“It was only Ali’s third varsity match and she and Johnny had never played together before,” Forest Lake Christian coach Steve Robinson said. “They did really well considering those factors.”
Robinson was also pleased with the performance of No. 2 boys doubles team of Thomas Coibion and Mark Huntsinger who lost the tiebreaking point to lose their match.
The Falcons improve to 3-0 overall, 1-0 in league and will hit the courts again Monday March 7th at Inderkum for a league match.
