|Coach Jack Olwell, in his 35th season as head coach, gave his team its pre-match instructions|
"I thought we would give them a closer run but they are both strong and deep," Tiger coach Jack Olwell said. "It didn't help that three of our top 10 were out of the line-up for various reasons.
"Still I don't think that would have been enough with their ball striking ability. They are quite young also - a little like us us but with more experience."
The Tiger highlights came at second singles and first doubles.
Jake Bauer provided the Farmington point with a hard fought 6-1, 6-7 (9), 10-6 win at the No. 2 singles position.

The first doubles team of Austin Tremmel and Trent Kortenbusch fell 2-6, 6-7(4) but played well according to their coach.
"I was proud of the way they fought back from a tough loss in the first to nearly leveling the match," Olwell said. "They made some strategic adjustments that paid off."
