FLOYDS KNOBS — FLOYD CENTRAL-NEW ALBANY

For the second time this season, the Bulldogs (12-3) gave Floyd Central a run for its money, but could not pull out the victory. New Albany lost 3-2 to the Highlanders in the season opener.

On Tuesday, three matches went three sets with Floyd Central winning two of them.

At No. 2 singles, the Highlanders’ Chris Boone rallied from a first-set deficit to defeat Alec Bates, 5-7, 7-6, 7-5. At one doubles, the Floyd Central duo of Jack Stoner and Harrison Davis also came back from a one-set deficit to down the Bulldogs’ Tanner Goller and Jake Kennard, 5-7, 6-4, 6-3.

Freshman Logan Charbonneau recorded New Albany’s lone point, as he defeated senior Ryan Plunkett, 3-6, 7-6 (7-4), 6-2.

Other Floyd Central victories were Duncan Bishop at three singles and Austin Ivey and Alec Saxon at No. 2 doubles.

“I thought we played well,” Miller said. “I’m hopeful we can get that match out of our system and things work for us better [today] where we’re a little bit more relaxed.”

Tuesday’s setback left New Albany coach Bob Dusch a little frustrated.

“We just weren’t mentally tough enough. We got close and we just didn’t come through the way we should,” Dusch said. “We’re every bit as good as that team, but I guess we’re not because that’s twice they have beaten us.

“I thought we played tentative in the first sets, except for Bates. I’m disappointed. I thought we would compete better than we did. The good news is we only lose one and I’m going to miss him.”

New Albany’s one senior is No. 2 doubles player Zach Daniel.

In an individual singles sectional match on Tuesday, Clarksville’s Adam Bryant lost to South Central’s Parker Gabhart, 6-0, 6-2.
