The boys high school tennis team had split its two singles and doubles matches with the Indians when only the No. 3 singles line remained undecided.
"About 50 people gathered to watch D.J. Sattar, our No. 3 singles player, decide who would win the match," head coach George Nelson said. "D.J. plays a finesse game and it tends to wear out his opponent, causing some unforced errors. It means there are a lot of long points and it takes a long time."
He said Sattar played his finesse game to perfection and the Tigers walked away with the victory.
The coach said the win improves Adairsville's overall record to 7-0 and its 7-AA Region record to 1-0.
Tigers' single scores include Austin Warwick, who lost 6-3, 6-4; Cray Spencer, who won 6-2, 2-6, 6-; Sattar, who took his match 4-6, 6-4, 6-3.
In doubles, Brett Gutkowski and Dalton Witt fell 4-6, 7-5, 3-6; Peyton Cox and Kirtan Patel won 6-2, 6-2.
"Last year Armuchee bounced us out of the region tournament and this was sort of like sweet revenge," coach Nelson said.
The team returns to the courts today, when it hosts Coosa at home.
