BROWNSTOWN – Bedford North Lawrence swept three-set duels in doubles as the Stars clipped Brownstown 4-1 on Thursday afternoon, recording the 100th career win for coach Donnie Thomas in his 10 years with the program.
BNL’s Alex East and Corbin Bushey, still undefeated in sets that have gone to a tiebreaker, rallied for a 4-6, 7-6 (7-1), 6-3 win over Sy Zickler and Sam Hoff at No.1 doubles, while Isaac Titche and Christopher Kidd battled back to conquer Jackson Lahrman and Gunnar Zickler 5-7, 6-4, 6-1 at No.2.
“It didn’t show how badly we played in the first set,” Thomas said. “I didn’t know what was wrong. We were a little off and a step behind. But as they went along, they played a lot better.
“It seems like when the pressure is on, we pull it out. Sometimes we don’t look that good doing it, but they played super strong in that tiebreaker.”
