WATSONVILLE — Monte Vista Christian High’s David Lee won his second consecutive match and he did it in straight sets.

The No. 1 singles tennis player defeated Pacific Grove’s Levi Thompson 6-2, 7-5 on Thursday afternoon at Pajaro Valley High’s tennis courts.

Lee was one of two Monte Vista Christian singles players to earn a win.

“It was a good game,” Lee said of winning. “The second set was tough but that was a good game, too.”

Unfortunately for the blue team, it wasn’t enough to get the team victory, as Pacific Grove prevailed 4-3.

The second set, in a way, was frustrating for both players, as they were both getting broken repeatedly. Thompson immediately went up 2-0 after breaking Lee’s first service game.

But Lee answered back by breaking Thompson in the third game followed by a near flawless fourth game to tie the set at 2-2. In that fourth game, Lee used two powerful sideline winners to throw off Thompson.

After that, it was the player who was on serve who struggled to get something going. With a chance to take the lead in the fifth game, Thompson instead couldn’t find the final point to get the win. He went up 40-15 but lost the next two points on an unforced error and then a drop shot by Lee. At deuce, Lee hit a drop shot that Thompson raced in to hit, but his shot went just wide, giving Lee a 3-2 lead.
