Westhampton Beach’s Josh Kaplan and Danny Tocco tried their best to make it an all-Hurricanes affair for the Suffolk County boys tennis singles championship on Monday, just a week after they accomplished that in the division tournament, but they fell just short in that quest.

Kaplan and Tocco reached the quarterfinals in the tournament at William Floyd High School on Monday, but that’s as far as they could get. Kaplan lost to top seed and returning county singles champion Jack Flores of Huntington, 6-2, 6-0, while Tocco lost a competitive match, 6-2, 6-4, to Alex Rzehak of Harborfields.

Westhampton Beach will now turn its attention to the Section XI Team Tournament, which was expected to begin with first-round play on Wednesday. The Hurricanes were seeded seventh in the bracket and will play the winner of No. 9 Harborfields and No. 24 Brentwood on Thursday, May 17, at 4 p.m., weather permitting. The winner of Thursday’s match will move on to the quarterfinals on Friday.
