The Syosset Braves and Massapequa Chiefs continued their winning ways on a gorgeous Wednesday afternoon, both picking up victories to remain undefeated on the season.

In Conference I-B, Syosset took on a Jericho Jayhawks squad that had won two straight matches. The Braves were too much for the Jayhawks on the afternoon, taking all seven contests for a 7-0 victory.

Daniel Shleimovich paced the Braves with a 6-1, 6-3 victory over Brady Berman at first singles to help his club improve to 9-0 on the year. Syosset takes on Manhasset next, while Jericho will visit Great Neck North.

The Massapequa Chiefs moved to 10-0 on the season as it defeated Oceanside 6-1 in a Conference II-A showdown. While the score line would suggest otherwise, this match was an extremely close one from the opening serve.

Four of the Chiefs wins went the full three-sets. Nasser Ghaffar of Massapequa edged Oceanside’s Jake Cohen 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 at first singles and Matthew Musalo got past Kyle Cohen 6-7(5), 6-4, 6-2 at third singles to help Massapequa nail down the win.

The Chiefs will put its undefeated record on the line when it hosts Herricks next. Oceanside will travel to North Shore for its next match.

Both teams from Great Neck picked up victories on Wednesday as well. First, the Rebels of Great Neck South improved to 5-3 on the year with a 5-2 win over the South Side Cyclones in Conference I-A. Andrew Schneider and Bryant Yi won a decisive match at fourth doubles 6-4, 5-7, 6-3 to help Great Neck South pick up the win.

The Rebels will host Port Washington in its next matchup. South Side plays Wheatley at home when it returns to action.

In Conference I-B, the Blazers of Great Neck North town down Garden City 6-1 thanks to a huge win at third doubles.

Brooks Hakimian and Avery Nabavian edged Garden City’s Will Donohue and Anthony Hazarian 7-6(6), 6-7(5), 15-13 in an epic three-set battle that could have went either way. Adding to the cause was Jordan Greiff, who defeated Patrick Bodovitz 7-5, 6-0 at third singles.

Great Neck North will take its 6-3 record into a home match against Jericho, while Garden City visits Friends Academy.
