This afternoon, it was the Lady Pirates making the noise early, breaking all three HPU doubles teams' service games right off the bat and riding that momentum to a 3-0 lead in doubles. Aleksandra Filipovski and Jessica Gardefjord were first off the court with an 8-2 win over Florie Paquay and Carrie Shuler at No. 3 doubles, then the No. 3-ranked duo of Alida Muller-Wehlau and Barbora Krtickova claimed an 8-3 win over Zora Vickova and Celina Goetti at No. 1 doubles. Tina Ronel and Kathleen Henry finished things off with an 8-5 win over Ielyzaveta Rybakova and Aleksandra Stankovic at No. 3 doubles.
Barry also owns a 3-0 lead in its match over Concordia (N.Y.), being played on adjacent courts. Two singles wins for the Lady Pirates and a possible date with Barry looms in the semifinals !
