Boys Tennis Team Defeats Salem, 4-1

The Revere High boys tennis team earned its third win of the season with a tidy 4-1 triumph at Salem in their only match last week. Coach Mike Flynn’s Patriots now stand at 3-2 on the season.

All three of the Patriots singles players won in straight sets, led by Capt. Malak Mossadek, who topped his Salem counterpart at first singles, 7-6 (7-3), 6-4. “The Salem boy has been a three year starter, so that was a nice win for Malak,” said Flynn.

Sophomore Mladen Pepic remained undefeated this season with a 7-5, 6-3 triumph at No. 2 singles and fellow soph Nick Mucci easily won at third singles, 6-2, 6-3.

The first doubles pairing of Joseph Tran and Pariwat Chaiwong were winners by a score of 6-3, 7-6 (7-2). The second doubles duo of juniors Nick Tran and Soun Lee played well, but came out on the short end of a 6-3, 7-5 decision.

“We played well,” said Flynn. “The boys are continuing to work hard and are improving with every match, which is what we are hoping to do throughout the season.”

Flynn and his team are at Gloucester Monday and at Lynn English next Wednesday.
