In the Girls match, both teams were faced with the challenge of playing with abbreviated squads.  As a result, the Flatbush 1st Doubles team of Carolyn Kassin and Julie Saadia won their set in a walkover while the absence of a Flatbush 3rd Singles player gave the Stars a similar win at that position.

The remainder of the sets were a challenge for the Falcons to say the least.  Lydia Cohen, anchoring the team at the 1st Singles position fell by a score of 8-2.  Margo Dweck had a similar result, though she took 5 games from her opponent in losing at the 2nd Singles position.  Flatbush’s 2nd Doubles team of Raquel Oved and Michelle Dweck battled valiantly, but came up short in the end by a score of 8-3.

The Boys took control of their match at the outset with dominating performances as the top two singles spots.  Joe BenHaim finished his set first, taking the point at 2nd Singles by a score of 10-1.  Shortly thereafter, 1st Singles Falcon Meyer Tawil dispensed with his opponent by a score of 10-2.  Meanwhile, Flatbush’s 1st Doubles team of Daniel Sitt and Sam Torgueman lost their set, falling 10-7, and making the overall score 2-1 in favor of the Falcons, with two sets yet to be decided.

At 3rd Singles, Aaron Harari had jumped out to a 6-2 lead, but then began to struggle with his mechanics. At the same time, the 2nd Doubles team of Isaac Sutton and Michael Dayan were in a dogfight with their North Shore counterparts.  It was too close to call.  With both sets nearing their inevitable ends, the 2nd Double match progressed at a faster pace.  And, when the Flatbush duo prevailed, 10-7, the match was secured.  Harari faltered down the stretch, dropping the 3rd Singles set.  Though clearly frustrated with his own performance, the end result for the team was a positive one, as the Falcons edged bast the Stars by a team final score of 3-2.
