By Staff | May 6, 2011

SPENCER – Spirit Lake-Okoboji ended up on the right side of the close matches in defeating Spencer 5-4 on Thursday.

“We had a few meets already that didn’t go our way when a few points here and there didn’t go our way,” said SLO coach Dan Taylor. “But tonight we were able to win all four of the match

tiebreaks we played. I wouldn’t say it is all luck or fortune, however – not in the least. In fact we worked on tiebreakers the day before this meet in practice, knowing that they come into play frequently in our two-of-three sets format. And the guys played extremely well, as they have all week.”

In singles play, Brandon Stoll lost 6-2, 6-4 to Michael Gabhart; Wes Bergquist defeated Morgan Kramer 6-4, 3-6 (10-8); Brett Kraus lost 6-3, 6-4 to Eric Maassen; Tyler Bice won 3-6, 6-3 (10-7); Jordan Richey lost to Jordan Plueger 6-3, 6-3; and Trystan Wiedow won 3-6, 6-3 (10-7).

In doubles, Stoll and Bergquist won 76 (7-4), 6-3; Kraus and Richey lost 6-3, 6-3 and Bice and Joe Oldson won 6-4, 3-6 (10-7).
