Carpinteria suffered its first loss of the season, falling to Thacher on total games after the teams tied 9-9 in sets. The Toads won 70-65.
“We had a 7-5 lead after two rounds and had good matchups for the third round, but we just couldn’t pull out one more set which would have sealed the win,” said Carpinteria coach Charles Bryant. “But the positive is, it is better to happen now then down the road in the playoffs.”
Silke Leonard and Izzy Scott each posted 3-0 sweeps in singles.
“In doubles, we struggled a bit more as we faced three good Toad duos,” said Bryant.
