Quick 4.5 update

What drama today in 4.5. David Guy pulled off one of the gutsiest wins we've seen in a long time. With the team score tied at 2-2 and down a set, he fought off cramps to come back against Fort Worth Wild's best singles guy (Bob Barrie) and pull out a three setter. The match was filled with drama, as Guy accidentally applied ICY HOT to his groin area and dramatically was granted a let after losing a point in which the ball broke. Noho moves on to the semi-finals, where it appears they will play Waco, who edged Dallas Wild 3-2.

Kingwood had a dramatic day as well, crushing an overmatched Corpus team 5-0, and securing enough lines (9) to capture the coveted wild card spot. Omon Dibua crushed "ringer" Andrew Maingot, but supposedly reinjured his knee. It will be interesting to see if he is able to play singles tomorrow. Phi Huynh won the other singles line for Kingwood.

It appears Kingwood will be matched up with Rusty Branch's Dallas team, who are looking like the strongest team out there. Slezak and Williams deposited Jason Kern back into the 4.5 ranks, and Rusty pulled his boys after securing three lines.

There was quite a bit of drama in the 4.0 ranks today as Chad Henagan went ballistic after being called for foot faults on four consecutive serves. His partner eventually got him to cool down, but the duo fell short in the third set breaker and Chancellor's season has come to a close. Division 2 will come down to a battle between Amarillo's youngsters and the Landsharks from Austin.

Freeman's 4.0 bunch will have its big matchup with Dallas in an hour or so. Gene Davis has been unstoppable for Dallas, so Freeman may have to take 3 of the 4 remaining lines. The valley wild 4.0 team pulled out after starting out 0-2.

Somabut's Dallas 4.0 team barely escaped a tough Valley squad to keep control in Division 4, needing a 3rd set breaker from Newman and Voss to keep Noho from tying them for the divsion lead. Noho dominated San Angelo 4-1 in their morning match, but needs help from San Angelo to advance.
