HASTINGS and host Eastchester had a long afternoon on May 19 before the visiting Yellow Jackets succumbed, 4-3.

“We had long, competitive matches,” Hastings head coach Sheree McNulty said. “Our doubles teams continue to dominate. In first doubles, Malcolm and Ben McNulty won in the super tie-breaker [in which] one game went to 19 deuce points.”

She continued, “Caleb Painter and Oliver Faranda won again at second, as did Will Lew and Nate Dudko in third doubles. Leon Wang and Charlie Linder’s match went to a set tie-breaker and lost by just two points at fourth.”

The McNulty brothers were 7-5, 4-6, and 10-5 winners over Reisuke Mizusawa and Kai Asakawa, while Faranda and Painter bested Dillon Burke and Maharoh Shimizu by scores of 6-4 and 6-3. Lew and Dudko cruised to a 6-0 and 6-0 victory against Theodore Jeliazkov and Ryphei Tada. Linder and Wang fell, 8-9, to Thomas Kane and Francesco Shkurtaj.

“Ford Zamore gave it his all in first singles in a match that went over 2 hours,” the coach said. “It was so close and competitive. Lucca Forrest battled in second singles, going to a super tie-breaker, and in third singles, it just wasn’t Julien’s day.”

Julien Amsellem lost 4-6 and 0-6 to Ethan De Los Reyes. Zamore fell, 5-7 and 4-6, to Brian Kim-Koustis, while Forrest dropped a 6-0, 4-6, and 5-10 decision to Gianluca Perrotta.

The Yellow Jackets also bested host Irvington, 3-2, on May 24. Hastings swept the two doubles matches to secure the victory.

The McNulty brothers defeated Brett Clinton and Max Shevrin by scores of 4-6, 6-1, and 10-5, while Faranda and Fudko downed Alex Lee and Srikar Puri, 8-2.

In singles play, Hastings picked up a win from Forrest, who bested Noah Yin by scores of 6-3 and 6-3. Irvington, though, triumphed at first and second singles, Efie Frechter besting Amsellem, 6-1 and 6-0, and Walter Fried downing Zamore, 4-6, 6-2, and 10-5.
