Rollins falls to Embry-Riddle

WINTER PARK, Fla. -- Ninth-ranked Rollins dropped a thriller on Thursday, falling to NAIA No. 1 ranked Embry-Riddle 5-4.

With the loss, the Tars fall to 1-1 while the Eagles improve to 3-1 on the season.

Rollins jumped out to a 2-1 lead after doubles, including a 9-8 win by fifth-ranked Will Kwok and Jason Alabaster against the NAIA top-ranked duo of Deni Zmak and Simon Felix.

Jacobo Herrero and Ari Davis earned the other point, defeating Migueal Lopez Gomez and Luke de Caires 8-3 in the No. 3 spot.

The Tars did not fair as well in singles, winning two of the six matches. No. 38-ranked Malte Christesen defeated Jaime Sanche-Canamar 6-3, 7-6 (7-4) in No. 2 singles while Herrero defeated de Caires 6-7 (7-6), 6-3, 10-8 in the No. 6 spot after the match had been decided.

The most exciting match of the afternoon probably came in No. 3 singles where ERAU’s Felix fended off No. 23 Robin Marchione in a tie-breaker in the second set to clinch the match for the Eagles.
