SEDONA, Ariz. -- The Weber State men's tennis team used a 5-1 edge in singles play to win its fourth-straight match, taking a 5-2 victory over Northern Arizona in the season finale on Saturday at the Enchantment Resort.

"We have been playing some great tennis as of late," said WSU head coach Brad Ferreira. "Winning four-straight matches gives us a great deal of confidence heading into the Big Sky tournament."

The Lumberjacks took the No. 1 and 2 doubles matches to grab the early lead. Weber State got a win in the No. 3 match as Ryan Garner and Anthony Trabert defeated Kester Black and Sarp Laleli 8-6.

The Wildcats came roaring back in singles play, winning all but the No. 1 match to secure the win.  Oliver Good put WSU on the board to tie the match with a 6-3, 6-1 win over Robert Martin in the No. 3 match.

The Wildcats then took a 3-1 lead as Caio Poitena defeated Black 6-2, 6-3 at No. 4, and Todd Fought took down Dominic Bermudez 6-2, 6-4 at No. 2.

NAU cut the lead to 3-2 with its win at No. 1, but Garner scored the clinching point for Weber State with a 6-0, 6-4 win over Laleli at No. 6. Sanjay Goswami added a fifth point with a 6-2, 6-3 win over Alan Barrios at No. 5.
