With singles wins from Katherine Bouressa (No. 1, 8-1), Paulina Klinger (No. 4, 8-4), Becca Jackson (No. 5, 8-3) and Rhianna Tallarico (No. 6, 8-3), Merrimack gained a big enough advantage to drop two of three doubles matches and still pull out a 5-4 victory over Spaulding Regional of Rochester at Merrimack’s Wasserman Park.

Bouressa and Alyssa Hobbs teamed up for an 8-6 victory at No. 1 doubles for the Tomahawks, who take the court again at 4 p.m. Friday in Concord.
