The Revere High girls tennis team turned the tables on Lynn Classical to earn a 3-2 win, thereby reversing an earlier season defeat to the Lady Rams by the same score.
Victoria Mauro at second singles proved to be the key performer for Coach Carla Maniscalcoâ€™s squad, as she won her match this time around in straight sets, 6-4, 6-1, to provide the impetus for her teamâ€™s victory.
Also emerging triumphant against their Classical counterparts were Yvonne Rincon at third singles, 6-3, 6-4, and the first doubles tandem of Jennifer Kingston and Donna Le, 1-6, 6-4, 6-2 in a match that proved to be the last and deciding match of the day.
â€œJennifer and Donna played really well and showed a lot of mental toughness to win in three sets with the match on the line,â€ said Maniscalco.
In the other matches on the day, Elma Meskovic fell at first singles, 2-6, 2-6, and the second doubles duo of Cristina DiFabio and Nancy Nguyen came out on the short end of a 1-6, 1-6 decision.
Maniscalco and her crew now stand at 5-7 on the season and need to win three of their remaining four matches to finish at .500 and qualify for a state tourney berth.
The Lady Patriots were set to play Lynn English Monday (which also included a resumption of a rain delayed match in which Revere was leading), Peabody today (Wednesday), and Beverly later in the week.
