July 14, 2017 – To say it was a hot night of tennis at the Raleigh Racquet Club would be an understatement. With temperatures in the low 90’s and the humidity even higher, Team Mosquito Authority and Team Alfred Williams & Company battled it out on the courts. A large crowd of 100+ enjoyed lots of great tennis and, from what I heard, consumed quite a few of Chef Jason’s famous hamburgers & fries.
Team Mosquito Authority drew first blood by winning the Men’s #2 court. Team Alfred Williams & Company brought the match even by taking the Men’s #1 court. Finishing up a short time later, Team Mosquito won the Ladies court to take a 2-1 match lead. All eyes turned to the Mixed court where Team Alfred Williams & Company’s Henriette Williams-Alexander and Thomas Mozur came back from a first set loss to force the second set into a tiebreak. With many exciting points, Team Mosquito Authority’s David Chermak and Martina Somoano hung on to win the tiebreak 7-5 giving them the court and securing the team victory for the Skeeter’s. The win puts Team Mosquito Authority in 2nd place leading up to next week’s match against league leader Team Wake Orthopaedics.
