Laguna Beach gave Viewpoint all it could handle Tuesday in the semifinal round of the CIF Southern Section Division IV boys' tennis playoffs, but the top-seeded Patriots from Calabasas managed to leave Laguna with a 10-8 victory.
"It was a tough match," Laguna Coach Aaron Talarico said. "Viewport played great and (give) all the credit to them."
Hutton Mckenna won two of three sets in singles play for the Breakers and Mike Rubel/Teague Hamilton won two of three in doubles.
Viewpoint will play Rowland for the Division IV title Wednesday at Claremont Club in Claremont.
"Our boys dealt with quite a bit of adversity this year and they kept on answering the call," Talarico said. "At the end, we fell just two matches short of the ring."
The Breakers, champions of the Orange Coast League, opened the postseason May 12 with a 12-6 home win over South Hills, the third-place team from the San Antonio League and an at-large entry in the playoffs.
