Falmouth Tennis Girls Clinch Postseason Berth with Key Victory

FALMOUTH – Both Clippers’ doubles teams and number one singles ace Julia Moskal carried the weight for Falmouth Tuesday afternoon in a 3-2 win over Sandwich and clinched a postseason tournament berth along the way.

Now 8-6 on the season, the Clippers have two matches left – against Bridgewater-Raynham and the tough Martha’s Vineyard team – but have a 5-3 mark in Atlantic Coast League play and needed only Tuesday’s victory to qualify for the MIAA team sectionals.

Moskal, only a freshman, staged a superlative performance in a 6-0, 6-0 shutout over Sandwich top singles’ player Grace Tanguilig, but Lady Knights’ Liz Siranosian and Kay Stanton held their own with respective wins at number two and three singles.

Siranosian defeated Marysia Moskal, 6-1, 6-1 and Stanton won her battle at number three singles against Falmouth’s Emily Gedney, 6-0, 6-1.

Emily Maness and Kayla Sheehan, however, turned things around for the host Clipper girls. Maness and Sheehan downed Lady Knights’ Allison Bryant and Taylor Eccleston in a vicious back-and-forth session, 7-6 (8-6), 6-3.

In number two doubles, Lindsey Shea and Paige Meade made the Clipper victory official with a 6-2, 6-3 win over Amy Bolton and Megan Green.

The Lady Knights fell to 9-7 with the loss and heads to Nauset today at 4:00 pm for their last regular-season match. Falmouth hosts Bridgewater-Raynham in a non-league contest today at 4:00 pm.
