LAGRANGE — After a tight No. 2 doubles match left Beddingfield on the wrong side of a 5-4 score to complete a suspended girls tennis match from earlier this season, the Lady Bruins turned the tables on host North Lenoir in Monday’s regularly scheduled match.

Beddingfield’s No. 2 tandem of Brianna Hale-Savannah Barberio gritted out a 7-5 tiebreaker win to claim a 9-8 win over the Lady Hawks’ Logan Mozingo-Hannah Herring that sealed the Lady Bruins’ 5-4 victory.

“A very intriguing and fun-to-watch tiebreaker,” assessed Lady Bruins head coach Jeremy Howard, whose team departed 3-4 with the split. “They were both going at it.”

Mozingo-Herring had defeated Hale-Alexis Hayes by the same 9-8 score to close out North Lenoir’s win in the suspended match. The tiebreaker result was 7-2.

The Lady Bruins won just two singles matches in the scheduled match — Hayes at No. 4 and Hale at No. 5 — but swept doubles to claim the match. Hale-Barberio fell behind 4-1 before winning five straight games only to fall back 6-4 before the stirring finish.

Weather permitting, Beddingfield will host Nash Central in a 2-A Eastern Plains Conference match Tuesday.
