The host Black Knights (9-3) surrendered only a dozen games in seven different matches against the Irish … and eight of those games came during an 8-4 victory by Armaan Karimpour over Bryce Tayengco in first singles.

PPHS went on to win the remaining three singles matches by a combined 24-1 margin, then netted a pair of convincing wins in first and second doubles before wrapping things up with a forfeit victory in third doubles.

Dylan Tayengco netted an 8-0 victory over Mckeon Reynolds in second singles and Dawson Wilson scored an 8-0 win over Jeremy Meade in third singles. Andrew McComas also posted an 8-1 decision over Tyrin Smith-Holmes in fourth singles.

Both Tayengcos came away win an 8-3 victory over Karimpour and Reynolds in first doubles, while Wilson and McComas posted an 8-1 victory over Meade and Smith-Holmes in second doubles.

Carson Chambers and Nick Newell scored a free victory in third doubles with the HSJ forfeit.
