ELNORA -- It took about fifty minutes for the Bloomfield boys' tennis team to pick up wins at No. 1 singles and at both doubles to earn enough points to win the North Daviess Sectional here Friday.

The Cardinals (11-9) split the last two points to come away with a 4-1 victory over defending champion North Daviess. They had defeated the Cougars by an identical score exactly one week earlier.

Bloomfield came off the bus pumped and ready to play and that energy gave the Cards early leads in all positions.

Del Carter yielded only two games to come away with a quick 6-1, 6-1 decision over Ethan Hawk.

Within minutes of Carter's win the No. 1 doubles team of Andrew Dawson and Jared Myers finished off Lane Heshelman and Trevor Wikle, 6-3, 6-2.

The No. 2 doubles team sealed the sectional championship when they defeated Lane Fulton and Tyler Hostetter, 6-0, 6-1.

At the No. 3 singles spot, Conner Dowden delayed the Cardinal celebration by needing three sets to down a gutsy Braden Lawyer, 6-2, 1-6, 6-2.

The Cards only loss came at the second singles spot where freshman Alex Chestnut couldn't find the right strategy and was beaten by Scotty Woodruff 6-3, 6-3.

The sectional win celebration can't be prolonged because the Cardinals go back in action Tuesday, Oct. 2 at the Jasper regional where they will take on the winner of the Vincennes Lincoln Sectional at 5:30 p.m.
