The Forester men began the day playing singles and came up with just two wins at #1 and #2. In order to win the match, HU would need to sweep the doubles. The Foresters kept Bethel on the defensive in all three matches and came up with the needed sweep to pull off the 5-4 victory over the Pilots.
Tyler Moore and Gonzalo Vivas were double winners on the day. Moore got the win at #1 singles when Kiko Cortez retired in the third set and he teamed with Mitchell McDonald at #1 doubles for the 8-4 victory. Vivas defeated Jared Shriner in straight sets 6-4, 7-5 at #2 singles and paired with Adam Widener for the 8-6 win at #2 doubles. At #3 doubles, HU’s James Makula and Matt Cable won 8-6 to complete the sweep.
“Our guys really played smart, aggressive doubles today,” said Coach Turner. “I am so proud of the way they handled themselves after struggling through singles. We have been really emphasizing doubles and it showed today.”
The men move to 2-1 on the season and are 1-0 in the MCC.
