Townies take on Narragansett

Posted

EAST PROVIDENCE — After a slow start, the East Providence High School girls’ tennis team has climbed back into Division II playoff contention over the last few weeks, including during a pair of matches which the locals ended up splitting.

The Townies began the period with a 4-3 win over host Chariho. Jessica Normile (6-2, 6-1), Meg Amore (7-5, 6-2) and Christina-Marie Capobianco (6-3, 6-0) were winners in singles action. The No. 1 doubles tandem of Skyla DaSilva-Riley Mello earned the fourth point with a 6-0, 6-4 win.

At home to close the week, the Townies fell to Narragansett, 5-2. The visiting Mariners won the first two singles matches off the court before the locals tied on wins by Amore at third singles (3-and-4) and Capobianco. The latter rallied, going the three set distance to pick the up victory at the fourth spot, 3-6, 6-2 and 6-3.

The news wasn’t as good for the Townies in doubles as Narragansett took all three available points. E.P.’s second pairing of Michelle Northup-Katarina Correia played the most competitive match, losing 6-4 and 6-4.

The Townies crossed over the half-way mark of their schedule with the defeat, falling to 3-4 with six matches remaining in the regular season. Narragansett improved to 4-3 at the time.
