Expecting victory, the Demons fall ‘flat’

Central spoils DHS home opener with an unexpected 6-1 win
Durango’s Jamie Wanzek jumped into the No. 3 singles spot with Eva-Lou Edwards missing at No. 1 on Friday, but she lost her first set 6-3 and her second in a long 7-5 battle. Wanzek was one of Durango’s six losses to Grand Junction Central on Friday afternoon in its home opener.
Durango’s Ellen Southworth tallied the Demons’ only win of the day in a 6-1 loss to Grand Junction Central on Friday afternoon. Southworth crowded the net to unbalance Claudia Montano and turn her soft returns into points. “Ellen likes to take charge and come in when she’s invited,” DHS head coach Dave Weisfeldt said.
Erin Neale started off hot for the Demons, burning through Central’s Jamie Johnson 6-0 in their first set with deep ground strokes and intimidating net play. But Johnson adapted to Neale’s strategy and beat her 6-4 in the second set and 10-8 in the tiebreaker for the win.
At No. 3 singles, Durango’s Jamie Wanzek lost to Grand Junction Central’s Katie Murphey 6-3, 7-5. Wanzek and DHS will host Grand Junction at 9 a.m. today.
