DURHAM — The Northwood boys’ tennis team crushed Northern Durham 9-0 last Monday afternoon in Durham in 3A Big Eight Conference play, dominating from start to finish to take a key road win.

Sam Earnshaw got the Chargers (2-3 conference, 4-3 overall) rolling with a 6-1, 6-2 triumph in top-seeded single’s action while Scott Gilliam rolled 6-0, 6-2 at No. 2 to send Northwood in front 2-0.

It was more of the same at No. 3 as Garrett Gordon cruised to a 6-1, 6-2 win before Oliver Poteete notched a 6-2, 6-3 triumph at No. 4, Ryan Christensen grabbed a 6-3, 6-4 decision at No. 5, and Drew Sipe captured a convincing 6-0, 6-3 win at No. 6.

In doubles, Northwood tacked on to its 6-0 cushion with Earnshaw and Gilliam rolling at No. 1 by an 8-3 count. At No. 2, Gordon and Poteete strolled to an 8-3 triumph before Sipe and Clay Riggsbee put the finishing touches on Chargers victory with an 8-4 victory at No. 3.
