NC Women’s 4.0 Friday Champions – Midtown-Palatine
Nearly two and a half hours into the match, the players from Midtown-Palatine and Midtown-Chicago were still out on the court grinding it out. Four of the six matches went to 3 sets. If you’ve won the 1st set, all you want to do is close out the match. If you’ve lost the 1st set, all you want to do is stay in it and get to the 3rd set. What’s interesting to look at are the scores. Almost all the 3 set matches were close. One flip-flopped and ended with a 3rd set tie-breaker. One match’s 3rd set ended at 6-0. Some of it’s mental, some of it’s physical, and some of it’s just good play and a bit of luck. Great playing on both sides with proud coaches from both teams, Zane Fulton and Joe Lyden, pacing the floor watching the matches unfold.
