Still in the second, Liu showing he has some power too and Li isn’t able to return, point for the huskie.

After exchanging some hard hits, Li changes directions and Liu and Sam looses his footing. Li takes the two set match 6-4 6-2.

#2 Singles

We go up one to #2 singles with North’s Zach Slade against Central’s David Wang.

After Wang took the first set 6-4, Slade is determined in the second. The guys battle back and fourth until Wang places a corner shot that Slades returns out of bounds.

Still in the second, Slade ot giving up. He back hands a short one and Wang can’t return it, forcing a third set after Slade takes the second 6-2.

And in that third set, Wang proves to be too much. He slaps one past the reach of Slade to the third and the match.
