Looking to battle back and avenge a loss to the same team earlier in the week, the Belfast boys tennis squad welcomed undefeated Camden Hills May 11 in hopes of knocking off the heavily-favored Windjammers.

The Lions, which lost to the ‘Jammers 5-0 May 8 on the indoor courts at the Midcoast Recreation Center in Rockport, had a short memory and battled the visitors tooth-and-nail, including having two matches go to pro-set tiebreakers.

In the end, the Lions won both tiebreakers and stunned the previously-unbeaten Windjammers with a 3-2 victory. It was both the first loss of the season for Camden Hills and also ended the visitors’ 20-match regular-season unbeaten streak, which spanned back to 2010.

Both Lions’ first singles’ players Carson Beck and the first doubles team of Wes Sterrs and Jamie Jackson sealed the win with their tiebreaker victories, while the second doubles tandem of David Flood and Francesco Rasi-Coldogno prevailed in straight sets.

Belfast coach Jenny Cameron said Friday’s win was “the biggest win for Belfast boys tennis in a long time.”

“These boys played hard and fought for every point today,” she said. “Carson has played his best tennis I have ever seen him play, and after losing to John [Vannorsdall] a few days ago at [Rockport], [Beck] had more motivation to go out there and give it his all.”

She said both BAHS doubles teams also played well, helping the hosts pick up the upset victory.

“This match came down to only a few points and the Belfast crowd was out in full force supporting these boys,” she said. “They were so happy to pull this win out and I am excited for the rest of the season.”

The individual results, with Lions listed first, were: In singles, Beck beat Vannorsdall, 6-3, 3-6, 10-8; Tyler Martin lost to Sam Predham, 1-6, 1-6; and Taylor Peabody lost to Austin Pohlman, 0-6, 2-6.

In doubles, Sterrs and Jackson beat Chris Pettee and Tucker Van Dusen, 6-7 (4), 6-3, 10-8; and Flood and Rasi-Coldongo beat Marc Belley and Eddie Socker, 6-2, 6-0.
