The Panthers won each match in straight sets as they improved to 3-0 in EWC duals (5-1 overall). PHS suffered its first dual loss of the season Thursday, 5-2, at the hands of visiting West Bend East.

“I was proud of how my team played Kewaskum. Each team had to make adjustments to be as successful as they were and did very well,” said Panther head coach Chuck Salibi.

WEST BEND EAST DUAL

The Suns won three of the four singles matches to key their nonconference victory over PHS.

Winning for the Panthers were Luke Hojnacki, 6-4, 6-2, at No. 4 singles; and the No. 2 doubles team of Ben Bachmann and Gabe Binversie, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4.

“This was the toughest match for Plymouth to date. Both teams were fairly evenly matched as evidenced by four of the seven matches going to three sets,” Salibi noted.

“Mental toughness is crucial in these situations. I believe that on another day, any of the scores could have gone the other way. They came out on top today but I was very proud of how my players dug deep to finish well.”
