York's boys tennis season has gone according to plan thus far, which continued Thursday with a commanding 9-0 road win against Bruton.
The Falcons were, for the most part, speedy with their singles wins against the Panthers.
York's No. 2 Walter Buck and No. 5 James Mollenkamp each earned victories in 35 minutes to put the Falcons on the board.
Ten minutes later, York's No. 3 Erik Moulton and No. 4 Denis Liu capped off their victories against Bruton's Daanish Fiaz and Dylan Shannon, respectively.
With roughly 50 minutes eclipsed, York's No. 1 Josh McFadden finished off Bruton's No. 1 Ian Sadler 6-2, 6-0.
The final singles match between York's No. 6 Cameron Wainwright and Bruton's Andrew McCordy lasted quite a bit longer than any other singles matches, concluding in about one hour, 15 minutes.
Doubles play was also expeditious for the Falcons, who won at No. 2 and No. 3 doubles by final scores of 8-1 and 8-3, respectively.
The No. 1 doubles match was called early as Bruton's pairing of Sadler and Fiaz had to retire because of an injury.
York (5-0) faces its biggest match of the season Monday at home against Jamestown, while Bruton (5-3) will visit Warhill on Monday.

Grafton Sweeps Lafayette to Extend Win Streak
Grafton's win streak increased to six matches on Thursday as the Clippers defeated Lafayette 9-0 at home.
The Clippers, while not as dominant against Lafayette as they have been in recent matches, were still able to comfortably earn all six singles victories.
Doubles was more of the same, as Lafayette put up a decent fight but was ultimately overmatched against a hot Grafton team.
Grafton (6-1) will try to extend its win streak when the Clippers visit Warhill next Wednesday. Lafayette (3-3) will look to snap a three-match losing skid on the road against Woodside on Monday.

After sweeping all six singles matches, the Eagles continued cruising in doubles play, dropping just one game in three matches.
