There are two datelines to this story: Cheshire and North Haven.
With rain intervening in a heavy way, Monday’s SCC Tournament quarterfinal match between the girls tennis teams from those two towns, after beginning outdoors at Cheshire High School, ended indoors at the North Haven Tennis & Racquet Club.
It was a match that literally went the distance both on the road — it’s roughly 10 miles from the school to the club — and on the scoreboard. The No. 3 Rams pulled out a 4-3 victory that sends them into Tuesday morning’s semifinals at Yale, where No. 2 Amity awaits.
Cheshire (13-3) got past No. 6 North Haven (13-6) behind a sweep of doubles and Erin Wu’s 6-0, 6-0 victory at No. 3 singles.
The doubles parade was led by Kelsea Mann and Jenny Wang’s 6-0, 6-2 victory at No. 1. Christine Anthony and Sophie Seigel were 6-3, 6-2 at No. 2. Alyssa Behuniak and Ellie Rockoff won by the same score at No. 3.
Cheshire and Amity (17-2) just met on Thursday in the regular-season finale. The Spartans won 5-2.
Lauralton Hall 4, Sheehan 0: The Crusaders had this SCC Tournament quarterfinal match secured by the time rain brought a halt to matters in Milford.
The matches that were completed were good ones, including at No. 1 singles, where Lauralton Hall’s Skylar Korman beat Srivani Agnihotram 6-3, 6-4, and at No. 3, where Chelsea Larke got past Sheehan’s Crystal Gallagher 7-5, 6-4.
In doubles, Sheehan’s No. 1 team of Shreya Patel and Christina Cappola dropped a 6-4, 6-1 decision. Daytona Scherb and Jordyn Allen fell 6-3, 6-4 at No. 3.
Lauralton Hall, the No. 4 seed, improved to 15-5. Sheehan, the No. 5, fell to 13-8. The Titans had won six matches in a row.
