Top seeded East Rochester downed No. 3 Kendall 5-0 Thursday in the Section V Class C championship tennis match at Wheatland-Chili.

Kendall’s Devin Appleton dropped a narrow three set decision at first singles as did the Eagles first doubles team of Michael Nundy and Alyssa Hering.

Riley Iqbal also dropped a close 6-4, 6-4 decision at second singles for Kendall which was making its first ever appearance in the sectional finals.

“We battled them and the matches were a lot closer than the final score would indicate,” said Kendall Coach Dan Boyd.

Kendall advanced to the title match by nipping No. 2 Marion 3-2 in the semifinals earlier in the week.
