In doubles, Inoue teamed up with Knickerbocker and returned the favor on Suh and playing partner Alexus Lombera with an 8-2 win in the No. 1 match. Sherif/Mason rolled to an 8-3 win at No. 2 doubles, while at No. 3, Boettcher and Stone cruised to an 8-1 win.

Winners of 15 straight and 125-of-132 sets played, the undefeated Pirates will continue their Orange Empire Conference schedule on Thursday at home against Cypress, beginning at 2 p.m.
