Wyoming Area’s no. 1 singles, Nick Leon, defeated Valley West’s Pat Antoll Friday afternoon, but Valley West swept the other four matches to take the team match 4-1.

It was the Warriors’ league opener and their home match, on the borrowed Pittston Area court, and it was played a day late in un-tennis like weather. The Warriors starters were Leon, Mike Werbin and Aaron Carter in singles. Tom Rose/Mike Cipriani, Curtis Hosey/Ken Morgan, doubles.

The match was the debut for first-year WA coach Bill Roberts. The Warriors were 7-5 last season.

The WA - Valley West match was the only match of the week for WA or PA. WA’s scheduled meet at Dallas Monday was postponed as was PA vs. Crestwood on Thursday. The WA - Valley West match will be played April 4. The PA vs. Crestwood match will be April 8.

Last season the Patriots were 5-7. The coach is Kim Collins. Key returning players are Trent Woodruff, Jr.; Tyler Woodruff, Jr.; Jeremy Homschek, Sr.; Suraj Pursnani, Sr.; Terry Briggs, Jr. and Justin Coe, Sr.
