There is very little room for error when playing in the toughest tennis league in the state.

That point was driven home Thursday, as the Coupeville High School netters, playing their third match in as many days, were nipped 3-2 by the visitors from The Bush School.

The loss, which drops the Wolves to 6-5 in Emerald City League play, 7-5 overall, was a reversal from the first time the two schools faced off eight days ago.

Back then it was Coupeville which snuck away with a 3-2 win, thanks to a late victory at #1 singles in a third-set tiebreaker.

Thursday, the Blazers returned the favor, bouncing back to sweep both singles matches and win at #1 doubles.

CHS wraps its regular season run next week with home matches against undefeated Seattle Academy Oct. 15 and win-less Eastside Prep Oct. 17. The second rumble is Senior Night for the Wolves.

After that, Coupeville sends two singles players and two doubles teams to the ECL tourney Oct. 19 at the Amy Yee Tennis Center in Seattle.

If the Wolves qualify, districts are the next day at the same locale.
