FALLON — The power of doubles led the Fallon boys tennis team to an opening 10-8 win over North Tahoe on Tuesday at the Edward Aricinega Complex.

Myles Getto and Eric Sabatino, the Greenwave’s No. 1 duo, dropped just one game in three matches as the pair anchored Fallon’s victory.

In addition, the No. 2 squad of Blake Malkovich and Josh Mikulak also went 3-0 including rallying to beat Emma Appleton and Kacy Wright, 6-4. Malkovich and Mikulak ended the day with a 6-2 win over Ronnie Goldstone and Luke Taylor.

Fallon’s No. 3 pairing of Dylan Kubeny and Trent Nuckolls, meanwhile, were also perfect on the day dropping just five games in their three matches.

However, No. 1 singles player Wei Deng secured the biggest win of the match for Fallon. He secured a 6-4 win over Murphy Scott to lock up the win.

As for the rest of Fallon’s singles player, meanwhile, it was a rough day.

North Tahoe went 8-1 in those matches, led by Rudi Arnston, who went 3-0 with wins over Deng (6-4), Thomas Jamieson (6-2) and Kyle Reed-Mason (6-1).

Mason Whittels also made it through his three matches unscathed, losing just three games. Scott added a pair of wins over Jamieson in a tiebreaker 6-6 (7-3) and Ryan Lords (6-0).

North Tahoe, meanwhile, struggled to field a full team before the match and folded its girls team — Appleton and Wright — into the boys team.
