Boys Tennis: Shakopee ends Tiger streak

Missota Conference leader and state-ranked Shakopee brought the Tigers' four-match winning streak to a screeching halt Thursday evening with a 7-0 shutout win in a contest played indoors at the Lifetime Fitness center in Shakopee.

The talented Sabers won all seven matches in straight sets, allowing Farmington (8-6) to win just three games in singles play.

"We competed well against a superior team that was loaded from top to bottom," Tiger coach Jack Olwell said. "We went after them the best we could, pushing them at the top two doubles spots. I guess it is no surprise they are ranked in the top seven in the state."

The best Farmington performances came at first and second doubles. The Austin Tremmel/Trent Kortenbusch combo lost16, 3-6 at first doubles while the No. 2 tandem of Cooper Ericksen/Grady Hauswirth fell 2-6, 2-6.

Monday the Tigers close out their regular season with a non-conference match against Minnehaha Academy before kicking off Section 1 team play Tuesday afternoon.
