                Jon Lee had another impressive victory.  He relied on his strong backhand shots throughout the match and easily handled his opponent, a player he beat in the third set the last time they met.  Peter Higgins started his match playing defensively and a bit timid.  Both he and his opponent had a lot of unforced errors in the first set.  He came out in the second set and played more aggressively, winning the set to force a third set.  By the time the third set started, the team score was tied at 2-2.  Peter handled the pressure well and closed the door on his opponent just as he was gaining momentum at the end of the match.  Sage Harris frustrated her opponent from the first point.  Last season she needed 3 sets to defeat him, but he clearly broke down under the pressure of her relentless offensive play.  This was a significant victory for the team.  Going into the match, Hebron was undefeated with a 6-0 record.  Hyde had only one loss in MAISADs and it was to Hebron.  As a result of this win, Hyde and Hebron are tied at 6 wins and 1 loss.  Each team has one remaining MAISAD match in the regular season.
