Singles rally not enough as Pioneers fall 5-4 to Palm Beach Atlantic

HILTON HEAD, S.C. --- Tusculum rallied after being swept in doubles, but fell just short as Palm Beach Atlantic picked up a 5-4 victory in non-conference men's tennis action Friday morning.

The Pioneers (8-2) had a four-match winning streak come to an end against the Sailfish (7-4), as both teams had won their first three matches of their respective spring break trips.

The Sailfish took a 3-0 lead after doubles, but the Pioneers started their comeback at flight two of singles as Marco Meon defeated Philipp Hoffmann by a 6-1, 6-2 score. At flight three, Yago Fernandez rallied from a set down to beat Rodolfo Hasegawa 10-6 in a tiebreaker, after splitting the first two sets 3-6, 6-4.

At flight five, Jorge Cervantes won in a tiebreaker 11-9 against Thomas Salmon after dividing the first two sets 4-6, 6-2, and at flight six Toby de Klerk beat Carlos Niemeyer by a 6-3, 7-6 (7-3) score.

Tusculum will open its South Atlantic Conference schedule on Saturday with a 1 p.m. match at Coker.
