Doubles did the job for Warren Central’s tennis team on Tuesday.

The Vikings lost both singles matches, but swept the doubles points to beat Florence 5-2 on the Halls Ferry Park courts.

The Vikings did not lose a set in the doubles victories. Luke Bond and Charles Harris started things off with a 6-0, 6-0 win in No. 1 boys doubles, and the Esparza brothers — Duke and Charlie — teamed up for a 6-1, 6-0 romp in the No. 2 position.
