OGDEN - Weber State men's tennis team fell to Eastern Washington 4-3 Friday afternoon.
"It was a very disappointing loss today," Director of Tennis Brad Ferreira said. "We did not play very well in doubles and that put us in the hole. Eastern Washington is a very solid team and you cannot give them an opening like we did."
EWU then picked up wins in the No. 2 and No. 3 spots giving the Eagles the doubles point advantage which later pushed them to the overall victory.
In singles competition, Cooper continued his hot streak by taking down Pereira 6-0, 6-2 in the No. 2 spot. Kris van Wyk followed with a win in the No. 3 spot defeating Flavien Raveau 6-1, 6-4. Eastern Washington then picked up wins in the No. 4, No. 1, and No. 6 spots. That gave EWU the overall victory.
In the No. 5 spot, Michiel Van Schoor defeated Ricardo Almeida 7-5, 6-7 (10-6).
Weber State is now 5-5 overall on the season and sit at 1-0 in Big Sky Conference play. Weber State is set to host Idaho Saturday, March 18 at 1:00.
