“We were shorthanded entering today's match with one of our doubles' teams broken up due to injury,” he said. “However, Talbot's name was called, and he stepped up and earned his first team point. He and captain Rector propelled Oceanside to clinch the 3-2 win. Philbrook and Thorbjornson made their debut as first doubles, and despite the increased level of competition, they continued their momentum into the second half of the season. Eklund earned the team win in straight sets against a very consistent opponent.”
