The first official games of the 3rd quarter IIAAG sports season served up all over the Island with the boys and girls tennis matches flooded the early evening. The Harvest Eagles dominated action against the GW Geckos as the boys won 32-3 and the girls won 32-2.

The Geckos got two wins in the doubles division after the combo of Dwight Sablan and Nate Santos managed to steal two games from Eagles Josh Tan and Nathan Zhao. Sablan and Santos were trailing 7-0 in set points before Sablan served the Geckos in a perfect 40-0 game.

“Yes, our first win! Sorry, I was just getting excited,” said Sablan after scoring on an ace to fight off the sweep. “Whoa, we won two games?!” Sablan added after scoring on a nice slice that barley stayed inside the line to win their second straight match point.

Tan and Zhao bounced straight back in the 10th math point to keep the short Gecko rally at bay, ending the action for the Eagles.
