After falling behind early 1-0 in the match, Chorn rallied back to win the second set 6-1 and send it to a tiebreaker. Chorn nearly pulled off a victory after taking a 9-8 lead in the
super 10-point tiebreaker to clinch the set ,when the No. 6 match gave Ventura College the deciding victory it needed to secure the win.
