    By Jon Charron

    Pacific Grove was defeated by Stevenson for the second time this season on Thursday afternoon [10-9-14]. The Breakers went 1-3 in singles, and 0-2 in doubles.

    The match of the day was between the top two singles players from each team. Savana McDowell of Pacific Grove and Julia Hwang of Stevenson. It was a tight, back and forth match that went down to wire, with McDowell coming out on top in the tie breaker.

    McDowell, who is now 4-1 this season, said that “it was a lot of fun competing against her.” After taking the first set 6-3, McDowell looked to have control of the match. Hwang however, would not go down that easy, as she played very well in the second set, winning 6-1. After an hour into the match, both girls were giving their all to take the tie breaker. “She brought out the best of me at the end,” McDowell stated, after taking the tie breaker 10-8. This gave the Breakers their lone victory on the day.
