Broncos hold on for 3-2 win over Hurricane


WILMINGTON — Western Brown handed Wilmington its first loss of the week, 3-2 Thursday on the WHS courts.

“Going 3-1 on the week is the boost we’ve needed and now we need a few days of rest ahead of two SBAAC matches on the road Monday and Tuesday and the American Division tournament all day Wednesday,” WHS coach Doug Cooper said.

Wilmington is 4-9 overall, 1-5 in the American. Western Brown is 14-3 overall and 5-3 against league rivals.

The Hurricane had wins by Layne Holmes at second singles and the first doubles team of Cary Holliday and Josie Heys.

“An improvement over our 1-4 loss down there,” Cooper said. “Experience is always a factor in close matches like these and they had juniors and seniors on every court.”
