East Surry lost their tennis match 5-4 to North Stokes at home in a conference heart breaker.

Cards Head Coach David Kidd said, “It was close the whole way.”

The teams were 3-3 going into doubles.

The Cards No. 3 doubles team pulled out a come-from-behind win going down 3-6 but coming back to win 10-8.

The No. 1 doubles team lost 10-0 and it came down to the No. 2 doubles team. They went down early but then won three straight games making the score 9-8. North Stokes came back and won two in a row making it then 10-9. It was tied up at 10-10 and went into a tiebreaker.

In a chance to win a tie-breaker East pulled ahead 8-5 but North Stokes came back with five straight points winning 10-8.

It was a super close match, said Kidd. The teams were evenly matched, he said.

Kidd said, “My girls were nervous going into the match because of the stakes, a win would put us into a tie for third in the conference with North Stokes. We had four matches that went into tiebreakers. It was exciting and I was very proud of how my girls played. If I have to pick a girl that stood out it would be Allie Hawks. She got beat in her first set, came back to win the second set and beat her opponent in a third set tiebreaker, she and Brooke really fought hard in doubles as well. She twisted her foot, we wrapped it up and she kept playing. “
