The Northampton boys tennis team played without its top two singles players Tuesday.

Despite the early setback, the Blue Devils earned gutsy performances at second and third singles to beat Westfield 4-1 at JFK Middle School.

Quick victories in doubles gave Hamp a 2-1 lead, but Jordan Maurer and Jonah Hahn faced deficits after both players dropped their first sets at second and third singles, respectively.

However, Maurer recovered to beat Chris Unger 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-1. Hahn came back to beat Jacob Barbieri 6-7 (4), 6-4, 6-2.

Elliot Weiss and Alex Zimbalist won at first doubles, while Ben Sharpe and Luc Vesel took second doubles for Hamp (8-2).

Francois Venne moved up from third singles to face Westfield’s Loeiz Briand, arguable the top player in western Massachusetts. Briand took every game in a 6-0, 6-0 win for the Bombers (5-6).
