MIDDLESEX, NJ - The match win once again came down to one of the Spotswood High School boys varsity tennis team's doubles teams. With two win apiece, both the Chargers and the Blue Jays sat down to watch the outcome of the second double matchup between Spotswood's Mike Kaczmarski and Ryan Miller and Middlesex High School's Israel Garcia and Kendrick Mui. The teams had split the first two sets with Kaczmarski and Miller taking the first set (6-3) and dropping the second set (6-2). The deciding third set would go all the way to the tiebreaker with the Chargers' team prevailing (8-6) to give Spotswood the 3-2 victory over Middlesex.

Anthony Harnandan and Kurt Vogl game Middlesex the first point in the match by defeating Spotswood's first doubles team of Matt Evanego and Stephen Gardner, (6-1, 6-4). First singles player Derek Miller evened the match at one win each, by defeating Justin Dela Cruz in straight sets, (6-4, 6-2). Jose Silva-Fajardo secured Middlesex's next point at third singles with a (6-2, 6-3) win over Spotswood's Josh Mathew. Spotswood again evened the match points after second singles player John Tobia defeated the Blue Jays' Cole Santucci, (6-3, 6-3) to set up the second doubles showdown. 

This was the third match of the season that was decided by a doubles match for the Chargers. The win improves Spotswood's overall season record to 3-2. The Chargers will travel to Thomas Edison Park in Edison tomorrow to compete in the Greater Middlesex Conference Tennis Tournament. Their next team match will be on Thursday, April 20 against New Brunswick High School at Buccleuch Park in New Brunswick at 4 p.m.
