The Nassau County playoffs continued on Thursday as three of the four semifinalists were set.

It was all chalk as the top three seeds, Syosset, Roslyn and Plainview, pushed their way into the final four of the Nassau playoffs.

The three-time defending county champions Syosset ousted Conference II-A champions Hewlett 7-0.

Justin Oresky clinched the Braves’ victory with a 6-1, 6-0 win over Stephen Gershfield at second singles.

It still remains to be seen who Syosset will play in the semifinals. Fourth-seeded Port Washington awaits the winner of Jericho and Wheatley, who play their first-round match on Friday, in the quarterfinals. Syosset takes on the winner of Port Washington versus Wheatley or Jericho for a spot in the finals.

Second-seeded Roslyn moved past Cold Spring Harbor 5-2 as it won all four of the doubles flights en route to the victory. Evan Jaslow and Daniel Winston notched a 6-3, 6-1 victory over Jack Warren and Ethan Shim at fourth doubles to lead the way for the Bulldogs.

In the semifinals, Roslyn will take on Plainview JFK, after the Hawks won 5-2 against Great Neck North on Thursday. The fourth doubles tandem of Ben Demarinis and Tyler Burd fought back from a set and 2-4 down in the second set to win 3-6, 6-4, 10-5 over Aaron Naim and Manny Hakimian to help lead Plainview into the final four.
