And the Lakers’ struggles continued in Thursday’s 4-1 defeat to Westhill. Lagorga beat Dan Haynes 6-3, 6-1 in first singles, but Okoniewski and Eisworth both fell in straight sets. Lansing and Stehle fell to Brian McMullen and Jared Ristoff 6-1, 6-1, while McDonough and Kyle Markowski had a 6-2, 6-1 loss to Flether Chapin and Alex Skeele.
By a 6-1 margin, Chittenango fell to Fulton, as again Delaney and Kiss break up the possible shutout with their 6-0, 6-0 sweep over Logan Carvey and Jacob Strauss. Palkin lost to Javier Pajaron 6-1, 7-5 in the closest singles match, with Carpenter and McGinnis battling hard in a 6-3, 7-5 loss to the Red Raiders tandem of Joel Monaghan and Zach Perry.
The Bears also lost, 3-2, to Marcellus, even though Delaney and Kiss beat Andrew Herold and Mike Raymond 6-3, 7-6, while Carpenter and McGinnis handled Geoff Golick and Sean Koloski by those same scores.
The problem lay in singles, where Chittenango’s trio of Purcell, Fields and Paikin won just one game in six sets against the Mustangs’ set of John Kramer, James Garzia and Alex Pirro.
