Stephanie Jensen, No. 3 for Central, lost 6-0 to Rincon and 6-1 to Urbina. Jansen got a default victory over Cota.
"We got off to a slow start, but then we got everything together today," said Central coach Dan Williams. "After the first round I just told them that they had to start putting more effort into their playing. Then they got everything together and I was pleased with how they finished."
On the doubles side the Spartans showed their dominance, taking every set.
Leading Central was the No. 1 duo of Teresa Vea and Sheena Vogel, who beat Calexico's No. 1 Tara and Tory Fenley 7-5 and No. 2 Angelica Ramirez and Arlene Madrigal and No. 3 Roxanna Zamarripa and Julie Lizarraga both 6-1.
Cristina Montaño and Monica Signorotti, No. 2 doubles for the Spartans, shut out Zamarripa/Lizarraga 6-0, beat Ramirez/Madrigal 6-3 and Fenley/Fenley by default.
Rounding out the wins for the Spartans was the No. 3 pair of Clarrissa Cota and Claudia Padilla, who had little trouble with Fenley/Fenley and Ramirez/Madrigal and picked up 6-2 victories over both. Cota/Padilla downed Zamarripa/Lizarraga 7-5.
Said Bulldog coach Lauro Parades: "We had a couple of bad breaks, which took the wind out of our sails. I guess it was just one of those days. Now we just have to take this and learn from it."
Both teams will play at 5 p.m. Monday, with Central at Southwest High and Calexico (0-2 IVL) hosting Vincent Memorial.
