BUCHANAN — It may have taken a week, but the Brandywine and Buchanan boys tennis teams were finally able to face off against each other on the tennis court.

The visiting Bobcats bested the Bucks 5-3 in a match that was originally scheduled for last week but was postponed due to inclement weather.

“I thought we played well,” said Brandywine coach David Sidenbender. “We had a chance to win in every flight, which is the goal.”

In doubles matches, the Brandywine duo of Carson Knapp and Sean Tweedy defeated Buchanan’s Rowen Kile and Luke Sherwood 6-2 and 6-3 in No. 1 doubles. Brandywine’s No. doubles tandem Triston Peterson and Ethan Adamczyk bested Buchanan’s Mason Griffis and Bodie Bryans 6-2 and 6-2, while in No. 3 doubles play,  Quinten Ruff and Parker Overmyer, of Buchanan, defeated Brandywine’s.
