Despite close doubles matches, Cardinals defeat Pipers

The Cardinals edged out the Pipers in the doubles matches to take a 3-0 lead into singles. The closest battle came from Anna Yarbrough (So., Minneapolis, Minn.) and Emily Workcuff (Sr., Lakeville, Minn.) at second doubles as they lost in a long tie-breaker 8-9 (14-16).

Yarbrough went on to bounce back from a set down to capture one of the lone two Piper match victories at third singles, 1-6, 6-0, 10-1.

Elizabeth Allen (Fy., Menasha, Wis.) posted the other win at sixth singles, 7-5, 6-3.

The Pipers are now 4-13, 0-9 MIAC and the Cardinals are 12-7, 4-6 MIAC. Hamline will close out the 2010 season with a road match at Bethel on Tuesday, April 27, at 4:30 p.m.
