SPRINGFIELD, Mo--The Springfield Lasers could advance to the World TeamTennis playoffs with a victory Wednesday night over Boston.

This match delayed more than two hours because of flight problems getting the Lobsters to Springfield.

Mens doubles was the first event, and Springfield's Michael Russell and Ross Hutchens in control.

Hutchens with the ace.

And then his partner, Russell with the backhand, and then the perfectly placed return and the Lasers beat the Lobsters 5-one in mens doubles.

Womens doubles was the second event, and Springfield kept it up, Olga Govortsova and Abigal Spears for the Lasers.

And then Govortsova on the serve, and Spears again with the point at the net.

Springfield takes the second event 5-love.

Springfield went onto win 25-7 and will play at San Diego Thursday for the WTT West championship.
