Court 1 - Team 3 David Case and Colleen Marley defeated Kelly Priestly and Scott Levin 6-1, 7-5 in a very competitive match.  After a slow start, it looked like Kelly and Scott might tie it up when it was 5-5 in the second set, but a few crucial plays made the difference in a tight struggle.
Court 2 - Team 3, Pana and Mark Sodemann defeated Richard Cross and Maria Grimm in a long battle, the longest of all the court matches.  Final score was 6-3, 6-4.   Lots of long rallies, as Pana and Mark returned shot after shot, from the equally consistent Richard and Maria.  But in the end the robot performances of Pana and Mark prevailed, to give them the victory. 
Court 3 - Team 3, Jane Smith and John DelColle lost in a close match to Judy and Tom Gibbons.  4-6, 6-7  Jane and John put up very competitive play, which came down to a second set tie breaker.   John, who will be 90 years old in December, played like a teenager, with strong serves and deep returns throughout the match.  The Gibbons husband and wife team has a strong record of solid play which won through after a long and entertaining match.
Court 4 - Team 3 Riley Woody and Terry Bannon defeated Laura Champagney and David Gallelli, 6-3, 6-3,   Terry played with an injured wrist, which did not seem to negatively impact his strong top-spin returns.  Riley gets stronger and more consistent every season, she is improving her game rapidly.  Laura and David both had solid performances, but a few key points made the difference.
