PORTLAND, Ore.- The Pioneer men’s tennis team came up a bit short in a highly contested match against a talented young George Fox Squad on Friday night at the Lewis & Clark Tennis Dome. Missing some of their guys, L&C let the Bruins fight back late to take the match 6-3.
The night started out strong for the Pios as they took momentum and a 2-1 lead heading into the singles flights. All three doubles matches were close with new partners George Allen and Peter Ray teaming up for an 8-5 win at #1 doubles and Quinn Roth-Carter and Andrew Davy pairing up for a 9-7 win at #3. Peter Ray played a tough match to even the score back up at three a piece, but the depth of the Bruins were too much for a short handed LC squad. Quinn Roth-Carter almost came back to win down a set and 5-1 in the second, but ultimately fell short in a third set super tie breaker 10-8. Although the Pioneers need to work on closing out their matches, coach Tilmanis was highly impressed by some of the things he saw tonight.
The Pioneers turn around and play the Pacific Boxers in a 1:00 pm match on Saturday at the Lewis & Clark Tennis Dome.
