Dysart High School vs Desert Edge High School
5 4

The Lady Scorpions took on the Dysart Devils in a tough close fought contest that came down to the #2 doubles team, and the third game of the doubles match. With the match tied 3-3 from the singles rotation, and Desert Edge picking up wins from the #1, #3, and #6 singles spots, it came down to DE’s strength; doubles to pull it out. Lady Scorpions #1 doubles team rallied back from dropping the first game, winning the second, and pulling out the third to give DE a 4-3 lead. Shortly after, DE’s #3 team dropped a close on in their third game of the doubles stanza forcing a 4-4 tie. With the match on the line, and both teams feeling it; the #2 fought back and forth, until an errant shot gave Dysart the lead, two quick miscues and a short drop shot was all she wrote. The Lady Scorpions look to rebound from the heartbreaker taking on Cactus tomorrow on the road.
