Euts Fall to Brescia

The Eutectics played their second conference match of the season on Saturday, April 5, when they hosted Brescia University at Tower Grove Park. The Euts fell to the KIAC third-ranked Bearcats 2-7.

Head Coach Caleb Barnes said court-one singles was the highlight of the match. After losing the first set at 6-2, fourth-year Alex Cline fought back and won the second set in a tiebreaker, 9-7, forcing a third-set tiebreaker against Brescia’s Tom Roidl. In the end, Cline lost 10-5 in the third set. “Alex played decent and lost a hard fought match in three,” Barnes said.

Third-year Brad Rumancik lost his first set at court-four singles in a tiebreaker, 8-6, and could not recover the second set (6-3), while first-year Justin Weigal forced his opponent into extra games in the first set, losing 7-5, 6-1 at court five. The Euts’ two court wins were due to forfeits by Brescia.

The Euts are now 0-9 overall, 0-2 in the KIAC. This weekend, the team will travel to Kentucky to take on three conference teams: Asbury University, Alice Lloyd College, and Berea College. Barnes puts a big emphasis on this weekend’s results, hoping to win at least two of the three matches.
