Posted

EAST PROVIDENCE — James McShane’s enthralling, three-set victory at second singles helped lift the East Providence High School boys’ tennis team to a 4-3 victory over visiting Chariho Tuesday afternoon, April 12, in city at the KenBrin Swim and Tennis Club.

McShane trailed significantly before mounting a rally in the middle set to eventually defeat the Chargers’ Christian Resinger 3-6, 7-5 and 7-6.

After dropping the first set, McShane found himself a game away from losing in straights, falling behind 1-5 prior to his initial response.

The third set followed a similar pattern. Resinger again built a seemingly comfortable 5-2 edge, but McShane also again answered back to force the breaker, which the Townies’ sophomore won 7-2.

East Providence improved to 3-1 in the early going of the Division III regular season. The setback was the first for the visiting Chargers to date, also leaving them with a 3-1 mark in the D-III standings.

Brayden Rouette also needed three sets to win his match for the Townies at first singles over Chariho’s Cooper Beck, 6-1, 4-6 and 6-2.

Nathan Thurber picked up the other EPHS point at singles with his 6-2, 6-2 win.

Miguel Flores played a very competitive match for the Townies at three singles, but Chariho’s Phillip Abby won 6-4 and 6-4.

East Providence’s other point came from its first doubles pairing of Jordan O’Hara and Jayden Amaral, winners by the scores of 6-2 and 7-6.

The Townies dropped the other two doubles points as Alijah Speaks-McSwain and Jayden Massa fell at the two spot, 0-and-4 while Jeff Bento and Houn Kim also lost at third pairs in three sets, 4-6, 6-3 and 6-0.
