Eagles blank Indians to reach tennis finals

(Continued)

The one match that didn't fit the mold was at No. 3 singles where Conner Bates had little trouble with Anderson's Dax Swanson in winning the opening set 6-0. But Swanson rallied and forced a tie-breaker in the second before losing 7-6 (8-6).

"It was a good match at all five spots," said Anderson coach David Ellis. "They were very close and very competitive. The first set can make or break a match. We're still a predominantly a young team in terms of experience."

"I have such a tough minded group of players," said Frankton coach Brett Sanders. "I had all the faith in the world in them."

The Eagles now head into a rematch against Pendleton Heights.

"We beat them 4-1 a couple of Wednesdays ago," said Sanders. "They have a good team, a smart team and they are well coached." The match will start at 4:30 p.m.
