The promise of an undefeated season disappeared after their first loss to Hingham two weeks earlier, but the Dragons were even more determined to pay their rival back when they took on the Harbormen last week minus No. 1 singles player Brayden Minahan.

Moving his lineup around to accommodate the loss, Coach John Bunar sent senior Peter Muncey up to the No. 1 slot where he had little difficulty with Hingham’s Woody Roman, quickly dispatching the sophomore, 6-0/6-2 for a 1-0 Duxbury lead.

Junior Conor O’Keefe moved up to No. 2 singles and played a marathon match with junior captain Rohan Rau, beating the visitor, 6-4/6-3.

By the time O’Keefe had finished, his effort had gone for naught, as Will Kingsbury had dropped a 6-2/6-0 decision at No. 3 singles to Will Donovan, while both Duxbury doubles tandems had also lost.

Duxbury’s first doubles team of Kevin Coakley and Eric Schneider lost to undefeated Josh Port and Ryan Fujii, 6-0/6-2, while the No. 2 pairing of Steve Kravitz and Will Triebel lost to Matt Port and John Alessi, 6-2/6-3.

The boys now stand at 11-2 prior to this week’s action and have four matches this week. They’ll learn their seeding in the MIAA DII tournament later in the week.
