Wakefield High School
J E B Stuart High School
The Wakefield Warriors proved once more how mentally tough they are at closing out matches! The team score was not an indication of how the Warriors stunned the Stuart Raiders, and outclassed them in some seesaw battles. Wakefield, playing without its 3rd seed Sophomore Aleksa Stefanovic, and 5th seed Senior,( and co-team captain) Stephen Tan bashed the hope of the raiders who saw an opportunity to eke out a win against the Warriors. Second seed Senior Ishan Chaterjee was broken in the sixth and eighth game at 5-1, and 6-2 , with a slight momentum shift, Chaterjee showed signs of frustration, his body language suggested he was not on- form to play. Stuart failed to capitalize, and Ishan took the last three games to finish off his opponent.
Doubles #3 -Senior Marvin Franco Moratoya, and sophomore Akash Chatterjee shading well, and covering the court superbly with Moratoya taking all the balls at net on every chance he got won a tightly contested match.
