BLACKFOOT â€” Long after all the other matches had finished and most of their teammates had left and gone home the Blackfoot doubles pair of Rachel Cannon and Anna Inskeep were still on the tennis courts of Blackfoot High School engaged in what turned out to be a three set battle.
After dropping the first set 6-4, the duo battle back to take set two 6-4.
But as the winds began to pick up and the spectators began to leave as the temperature dropped Inskeep and Cannon kept battling eventually earning a 7-5 third set win.
Unfortunately the doubles win did not close the deficit the team faced as the girls fell to visiting Hillcrest 4-2 while the boys eared a 3-3 tie.
Doubles was were the Broncos did their most damage against the Knights as the team won all but one the doubles matches on the day.
The boys doubles team of Tanner Norton and Daylan Bird continued their undefeated season with a 7-6, 6-4 win over Hillcrest's Lukas Glesenberges and Will Warner.
