Dos Pueblos won six doubles sets and Alessa Somer and Julia McEachen pulled off clutch third-round singles wins to help the Chargers beat San Marcos on total games, 84-75,  after the teams tied 9-9 in sets in a Channel League girls tennis match on Thursday.

Somer won her last set at No. 1 singles, 6-1, while McEachen prevailed 6-4 at No. 3.

“Today, we played with focused games, lots of heart, and true team spirit,” said DP coach Laura Housinger.

The DP doubles teams were all beaten by the San Marcos No. 1 team, “but showed a lot of grit and dedication to come back and win all six other matches in the doubles lineup,” said Housinger.

Dos Pueblos is 7-2 overall and 3-1 in league.
