4.5 Women’s Team Wins North/Central Crown

It was a dramatic ending to a very competitive season!  After splitting the two regular season meetings we expected the finals to be close…and it was.  Courts 1 & 5 were straight set victories for Midtown-Palatine while River Trails took courts 2 & 4 in similar fashion.  That left courts 3 & 6 which both went the distance.  Midtown-Palatine won court #6 6-2 setting up a decisive match on court 3.  MTP got off to a quick 5-2 lead before RT fought off 2 match points and took the match 7-5.

That left the teams tied in matches (3-3) and sets (7-7).  It was close but River Trails narrowly won by 4 games.  This completed their clean sweep of the 4.5 Red league after winning the Northwest division the week before.
