OSAGE — Down 4 games to 7 in a pro-set match to 8, the Charles City No. 2 doubles team of Amy Boggess and Jodie Sindlinger rallied back against the Osage duo of Klaire Chisholm and AnnMarie Milbrandt to go up, 8-7.

But the Green Devils were able to tie the set at 8, and then went on to win the tiebreaker, 7-3.

It was the closest the Comets came from winning a varsity match Thursday as the hosting Green Devils swept them, 9-0.

“They played hard and came back, but they just came up a little short,” Charles City coach Brian Parrott said. “They are both sophomores and are friends who like playing together, so they should become a good doubles team for us.”

In junior varsity play, Charles City and Osage each took 11 matches.
