RENO, Nev. - The University of Nevada men's tennis team fell in its first match at home on Saturday to the San Francisco Dons by a final score of 6-1.
The loss by the Wolf Pack (6-4) to the Dons (5-2) snapped a three-match winning streak for Nevada. The Pack notched two victories on the day, one in both doubles and singles. The Pack had the chance to secure the doubles point, leading 7-5 on court three, but couldn't close the match out.
"That just shows a lack of maturity," head coach Erik Burton said. "We started out slow, the weather I think helped our opponent. We lost out on momentum with the loss of the doubles point. USF performed better in the important points and was able to win all the close matches."
The singles victory came from freshman Andrew Poustie in position 4, as he rolled past Rich Van Hout 6-1, 6-0. The doubles victory came from the pair of Victory Ouvrard and Robert Allan, as together they defeated the team of Thai Tu and Willam Schumacher 9-7 from position one.
The Wolf Pack is in action again next on March 9 when it travels to California for a dual match against UC Davis at 1 P.M.
