East Union showed no ill effects from a lineup change in Wednesday’s 8-1 Valley Oak League victory at Sierra, claiming all but the No. 3 doubles match.

“We had some issues with one guy being out sick so we had to rotate some guys up the ladder and it worked out well for us,” East Union coach Rick Mitchell said. “We had to battle through some tough games but overall the guys did a pretty good job. I give credit to Sierra, they just kept coming. There were some deuce points that could have gone either way.”

The Lancers (4-2) won every singles contest in straight sets: Luke Macias (6-2, 6-1), Kevin Flores (6-2, 6-2), Andrew Rossette (6-1, 6-0), Kyle Niendorf (7-5, 6-2), Jesus Ramirez (6-3, 6-4) and Jake Kramer (6-1, 7-5).

Christian Rodriguez and Mario Zuniga won the No. 1 doubles match, 6-4, 6-0. Raul Duenas and Jesus Leon got the win at No. 2 doubles after a Sierra player went down with an injury.

The No. 3 tandem of Andrew Andrade and Steven Gott squeaked out a 6-3, 0-6, 7-5 win over Gerardo Romero and Roxin Manjooran for the Timberwolves’ lone point.

The host Cougars got three hard-earned points at No. 1 singles, No. 2 singles and No. 2 doubles.

Chai Saepharn battled back to knock off Lathrop’s Ivan Alegado 1-6, 6-1, 6-1. Ion Obiso played through an illness and won 6-0, 7-5. He was down 3-5 in the second set.

Jaspinder Grewall and Kent Balacy pulled out a 7-6, 6-4 win over Chris Consul and Johnny Barajas. The Grewall-Balacy duo avoided a third set by coming back from an 0-3 deficit.
