STATEN ISLAND, N.Y.- The Saint Peter's University men's tennis team put on an impressive road performance, sweeping past the Wagner College Seahawks yesterday afternoon. The only match in which the Peacocks did not win in straight sets was at #1 singles, in which Carlos Carrera (Quito, Ecuador/APCH) would defeat Christian Gzau of Wagner in three.
With the win, the Peacocks improve to 2-8 on the year, while the Seahawks fall to 1-9.
Carrera secured a tie breaker win in set one, before dropping the second by a score of 6-3. He would ultimately win the third set in a tie breaker as well.
Luccas Coutinho (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil/Coligio GPI-Vinicula), Oliver Bellomi (Parksville, BC/Laurel Spring) and Fabian Valdiviezo (Guayaquil, Ecuador/Colegio-Aleman) would each shutout their opponents by identical scores of 6-0, 6-0 at #3, #4 and #5 singles, respectively.
