Bobcats 4, Bearcats 2
CHEHALIS — Aberdeen’s depth in the No. 2 and 3 spots in both singles and doubles was plenty good enough to give it an Evergreen 2A match win over Chehalis on Wednesday.
The Bobcats won two of the three singles and doubles matches for the overall win, but AHS head coach Andy Duffy believed his No. 1 doubles team’s loss was the best match of the day.
Eddie Yee and John Solan took Chase Peterson and Seth Schneider to a very deep three-set match, winning the second set by tiebreaker and leading the thirdt, 5-2, before falling, 6-4, 6-7 (4), 7-5.
“Their confidence coming in had been shattered,” Duffy said. “They really didn’t feel like they belonged on the court over the past couple of matches. They came off the court today feeling good and with confidence. It was a great match.”
On Friday, Aberdeen hosts Capital.
Kenny Saari (Che) def. Dillon Rowe 6-3, 6-3. Cole Edwards (A) def. Daniel Blomdahl 6-2, 6-3. Dominic Salick (A) def. Jacob Schneider 6-0, 6-1. Chase Peterson-Seth Schneider (Che) def.

T-Birds 213, Bobcats 225
TUMWATER — Aberdeen freshman Eric Hagen took medalist honors on Wednesday afternoon at Tumwater Valley Golf Course, but host Tumwater earned the win in this Evergreen 2A match.
Hagen carded a 38 for the low round of the match, with teammate Devin Daniels adding a 42 for the Bobcats. Tumwater was led by Heath Ohnemus’s 39.
“We’re not kicking on all cylinders right now,” AHS head coach Harley Revel said. “Things are coming together, but we’re just not consistent yet. The conditions were nice, but the greens were tough, punched.”
Coach Revel cited his two freshman on the varsity roster — Hagen and Justin Cox — for their performances.
Today, Aberdeen travels to Centralia for a non-league match.
Aberdeen (225) — Devin Daniels 42, Stuart Ball 47, Eric Hagen 38, Kegan Bridges 50, Jordan Weiberg 52, Justin Cox 48.
Tumwater (213) — Heath Ohnemus 39, Garrett Neswick 42, James Killough 42, Thomas Coates 41, Jack Knox 51, Kyle Rehm 49.
Hyaks fall in four
NASELLE — Unable to sustain a fast start, North Beach fell to Naselle, 24-26, 25-14, 25-13, 25-8, in a Pacific League opener Tuesday night at Naselle.
First-year Hyak coach Angi Schreiber said her team failed to maintain its aggressiveness and consistency after winning the first set.
“I’m going to put (some of) it on first-match jitters, but we’ve got things to work on,” she said.
Koral Frost, North Beach’s lone senior, was cited for all-around play.
The Hyaks won the junior varsity match, but dropped the C squad contest.
North Beach (0-1) travels to Northwest Christian tonight for a varsity-only match.
