SACRAMENTO — Santa Clara secured the doubles point, and won five of the six singles matches, on the way to a 6-1 victory over Sacramento State in a non-conference men's tennis match on Saturday afternoon on campus.
The Broncos have now won two straight, and six of their last eight matches while improving to 6-3. The Hornets, who had won four of their last five prior to today's match, dropped to 4-5 with the loss.
The lone victory in today's match came from freshman Johannes Gjerdaker who beat Kamran Khan at No. 5 by a 6-0, 6-1 score. Gjerdaker continues to impress in his first season at Sacramento State as the Stavanger, Norway, native is now 6-3 and has won five straight singles matches.
Santa Clara opened the match by winning two of the three doubles matches. Mikus Losbergs and Louis Chabut won at No. 1 by a 6-4 score, but the Hornets dropped matches at No. 2 (6-3) and No. 3 (7-6).
In singles play, Losbergs fell at No. 1 (2-6, 6-2, 7-6) while Dom Miller at No. 2 (6-0, 6-0), Hermont Legaspi at No. 3 (6-2, 6-3), Chabut at No. 4 (6-0, 6-3) and Josh Snowdon-Poole (6-3, 7-5 at No. 6) also lost. Sacramento State was playing without the services of Donald Hall (shoulder injury), who is 5-1 this year and has won five straight singles matches.
Sacramento State will get some time off before co-hosting the Golden State Invitational on March 8-9. The Hornets will open at home on March 8 against Hawai'i at 10 a.m.
