The score was 6-3, 0-6, 10-7. Very exciting points with all players demonstrating good doubles strategy by attacking and getting a high percentage of first serves in the court. This was a match of streaks with Andrew & Brandon winning the first 2 games of the match, followed by Mike & Carlos winning the next 5, then in the second set, Brandon & Andrew won 6 games in a row.  In the match-tiebreak, it was close for the first half with the score tied at 5-5, but then Carlos & Mike asserted themselves at the net to take a 9-6 lead as they went on a 4-1 run before closing out the match 10-7. The crowd of over 40 people were sad that anyone had to lose this excellent contest.  There were sandwiches and pizza as well as drinks available to all spectators and Gene offered a free live ball session to members after the match.  Thanks to Brenda and all the other players who participated in the 2016 Men’s Doubles Tournament.
