Wins over Scituate (4-1), North Quincy (5-0), and Pembroke (5-0) punctuated a busy week and left the Dragons with a 5-1 record, as they started this week by facing perennial Patriot League foe Hingham on Monday afternoon on the road.Duxbury’s win over Scituate improved its record to 3-1 overall and 2-0 in the Patriot League. Despite the windy conditions, senior Peter Muncey played excellent in a 6-2/6-3 victory over Greg Louge at No. 1 singles, while senior Connor O’Keefe also won his second singles match 6-0/6-4 against Harry Bertoni.

The junior duo of Will Triebel and Kevin Coakley won 6-0/6-4 at second doubles against Aaron Krell and Matt Kuklis.
The lone loss of the day was sophomore Harry Sohmer at third singles, who lost to Matt Louge in a close two-set match, 6-4/6-4.
After travelling to North Quincy and pinning a 5-0 shutout on the Red Raiders on Wednesday, the Dragons returned home on Thursday to face the Pembroke Titans and pulled off another shutout win.

Clifford easily took care of Scotty Allen, 6-0/6-0 at No. 3 singles.
