Rams get by Pleasant in tight match
UPPER SANDUSKY — Only two matches were one-sided Wednesday when Upper Sandusky and Marion Pleasant tangled on the tennis court.
In the end, it was the Rams that won, 3-2.
At singles, The Rams’ No. 1 Levi Malone took down Dane Williams 6-1, 6-0, while their No. 2 Landon Cotto-Ramos beat Connor Eblin 0-6, 6-2, 6-0.
Pleasant took the first doubles match due to injury as the team of Izaiah Wiley and Patrick McDonald topped Grant Bower and Anson Hill 7-6 (15-13), 1-1 before the injury occurred.
The Rams No. 2 duo of Nolan Mewhorter and Kyle Snowden secured the win with a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Zach Carr and Rylee Haas.
“I’ve never seen a score like what Landon had,” Rams coach Aaron Frazee said. “He just got off to about as bad a start as you can. He lost the first seven games and then won 12 of the next 13. His three sets were over before the first set of the first doubles match, which was decided in a bizarre 15-13 tiebreaker.”
The Rams improved to 6-2.
