CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --- The Chattanooga men’s tennis team fell 5-2 to Davidson in the Mocs’ Southern Conference opener Tuesday afternoon at the Manker Patten Tennis Courts.

 

The Mocs fall to 1-6 overall and 0-1 in league play while the Wildcats improve to 4-6 overall and even out their SoCon record at 1-1.

 

Peter Sauska and Pavel Vostikov netted a pair of wins for Chattanooga. Sauska and Vostrikov paired up to get the Mocs’ lone win in the doubles matches defeating Eric Noble and Walker Lyons 8-7(6), but the Wildcats would snare the two remaining matches by identical 8-2 margins.

Vostrikov defeated Noble in much the same way falling in the opening set 6-4 then coming back to tie the match with a 7-5 win in the second set and claim the win in a super tie-break and improve to 5-3 at No. 2.
