Gadsden, AL—The Marion Military Institute Tigers pounced on the Cardinals of Gadsden State Community College on a windy Saturday afternoon at the Gadsden Sports Complex, defeating the Cardinals, 7-2. MMI had to forfeit two matches due to an insufficient number of players.
The Tigers put five more points on the board in singles play with wins by Danny Boussom (6-0, 6-1), Booth (6-0, 6-1), Polk (6-2, 6-1), Hunter (0-6, 6-2, 10-5), and Carey (7-5, 6-1).
The most dramatic match of the day was John Hunter's clutch come-from-behind victory over Clint Brewer. Hunter lost the first eight games of the match but fought back to win the next six games to send the match into a third-set super tiebreaker. Hunter gave up a handful of points to win the super tiebreaker, 10-5.
The Tigers complete their fall season with a 1:00 p.m. match against the Meridian Community College Eagles at the Northeast Tennis Center in Meridian, MS, on Friday, November 4.
