Anoka failed to win a tie-breaking doubles match, ultimately losing yesterday’s (April 18) match with Champlin Park 4-3 on Rebel courts.
Things looked promising for the Tornadoes from the start when Anoka won three singles matches before losing a doubles match.
Champlin Park then won one singles and one doubles, making the outcome dependant on two doubles matches.
Anoka lost the first set, then went up in the second set, but ended up losing in a tie-breaker, 7-4, in the second set.
“It was an extremely close match,” said Anoka coach Chad Fellows.
Next up the Tornadoes face Park Center, 4 p.m. Friday, April 20.
