Ferndale boys' tennis couldn't overcome Burlington-Edison's strong doubles play as the Golden Eagles fell 5-2 on Thursday, Oct. 10, at Burlington-Edison. The teams were making up a meet that started on Oct. 1.
Ferndale's Maxwell Jeffrey fell behind against Ryan Edson 6-7 (2) on the first day, but came back on Oct. 10 to win the next two sets 6-2, 6-0. The Golden Eagles' other win came in Colton Young's win over Kendall Perry 7-6 (5), 0-6, 10-2 in the super tiebreak.
"Maxwell played his best match all year, everything was coming together for him," Ferndale coach Rudy Vendiola said in a phone interview. "Colton has been getting some key wins for us. He's really good at just forgetting (a bad set) and starting over. He did a great job in getting that super tiebreak."
Ferndale's next meet is at 3:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 14, at Squalicum.
