No. 7 Cal Lutheran 8, Occidental 1

PASADENA, Calif. -- Cal Lutheran won its seventh consecutive season opener Saturday afternoon when it took down fellow Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) foe Occidental 8-1.

The Kingsmen got off to a less than advantageous start when the No. 1 doubles team of Moises Cardenas and Fergus Scott fell to Josh Dancu and Avery Howard 8-1. Undeterred, Cal Lutheran salvaged the doubles portion of the match when the No. 2 duo of Alex Nichols and Connor Treacy routed Kevin Siebs and Jack Streeter 8-0 and Ian Slater and Jesse Knight won the No. 3 game 8-5.

Cal Lutheran went 5-0 in the singles portion with Cardenas taking the No. 1 match 6-0, 6-2 versus Dancu. Nichols defeated Siebs in the No. 2 game 6-3, 6-0 and Treacy defeated Howard in back-to-back 6-1 sets.

Slater was leading 4-2 before his opponent Trevor Brown had to retire due to injury. Sean Handley got Cal Lutheran its seventh point of the match with a 6-2, 6-2 victory versus David Cotton.

Scott had the toughest singles match of the day, going three sets with Eric Kanzangian. He dropped the first set 7-5 but rallied to take the second 6-3. The two would need a third-set tie-breaker to settle the match before Scott would prevail a 10-8 winner.

No. 8 Trinity (Texas) 9, Schreiner 0
UTSA (DI) 4, No. 8 Trinity 3

Trinity split a pair of Saturday matches, beating Schreiner 9-0 in its home opener, then suffering a narrow 4-3 defeat at Division I UTSA.

The Tigers started the day with three solid doubles wins over Schreiner, then finished with straight-set wins in singles to earn the shutout. Trinity had 12 different players earn individual wins in the match -- three doubles teams, and six singles matches.

In the match against UTSA, Charlie Curtis and Clayton Niess scored a 6-5 win at No. 3 doubles, but Trinity's top two doubles teams were edged 6-3 and 6-2 to give the Roadrunners the doubles point.

Curtis also nabbed a 6-5, 6-3 win at No. 6 singles against UTSA, while Paxton Deuel (6-4, 6-2 at No. 1) and Jordan Mayer (6-4, 6-5 at No. 5) also scored wins for the Tigers.  Nico Moreno suffered a 6-0, 6-5 loss at No. 4 singles to clinch the match for the Roadrunners.
