Instead, the teams settled for what amounted to a live practice.
“It’s kind of annoying, we just wanted to finish it off,” said Rebels Coach Ron Catano. “It was looking good for us.”
Catano, whose team is 10-5 and 1-2 in the Prep League, thought his team was on the right track to a win due to matchups, though the third-round sets in progress were all close.
Davidson thought it was too close to call.
“It could’ve gone either way,” he said.
Davidson got a doubles sweep from his No. 1 tandem of Jeff Asano and Elliot Kim, 6-2, 6-2, 6-3, while Ashot Papikian won his two completed sets, 6-2, 6-2.
“He was playing the best he’s played all year,” said Davidson of Papikian, who defeated Prep’s Alex Wood in a battle of No. 1s.
Jon Azizian and the duo of Alex Levin and Edgar Hakobyan also won sets for Glendale (6-8, 4-6 in Pacific League).
Eric Kazangian won his two singles sets, 6-1, 6-0 for Prep. In doubles, all three Rebels teams — John Lee and John Kim, Reza Ghessari and David Chou and Kent Byun and Koby Hayashi — won single sets, as did Wood in singles.
Glendale faces Burbank today as it battles for fourth in league, while Prep takes on league frontrunner Chadwick on Tuesday.
