ALEXANDRIA — A sweep in doubles helped propel Willmar past Alexandria 5-2 Friday in a Central Lakes Conference match.

Willmar had lost all three doubles matches in an earlier meeting with Alexandria this season, but its singles players posted a sweep to win 4-3 on its home courts. This time around the teams split singles, with Alexandria taking the first two spots.

All five of Willmar’s wins Friday came in straight sets, including a 6-1, 6-0 win for Jarod Swoboda at 3-singles. Manny Obregon won 6-2, 6-2 at 4-singles, with Tate Hovland/Nick Courtney at 1-doubles winning a second-set tiebreaker 7-5, Tom Kerstetter/Nick Revier at 2-doubles winning 6-1, 7-5 and Alec Bateman/Alex Reynolds at 3-doubles earning a 6-4, 6-2 win.

“Eliminating unforced errors and steady play resulted in the difference,” said Willmar coach Jim Anderson of the doubles turnaround. “Jarod overpowered his opponent for a convincing victory and Manny played well-constructed points, wearing down his opposing Cardinal.”

Willmar, now 4-1 in CLC play and 7-2 overall, is slated to play at Sartell on Monday.
