SPARTANBURG, S.C. --- Chattanooga’s Peter Sauska won his second consecutive match but it would be all UTC would get as the Mocs fell 6-1 to Wofford Sunday afternoon at the Reeves Tennis Center in Spartanburg, S.C.

 

Sauska earned a 6-1, 6-2 win over Wofford’s No. 1 player Stuart Robertson. Sauska, along with doubles partner Pavel Vostrikov defeated Robertson and Danny Marlow in the doubles top spot 8-7(7-2). But it would be the Mocs lone win in doubles play.

 

Wofford grabbed a 1-0 lead on the Mocs as the Terriers took wins on two of three courts. Alan Donald and Paul Bartholomy wasted no time in putting away Tyler Pullen and Alex Butnarcuic 8-1 on court No. 2. Scott Collins and Tinus van Wyk then clinched the doubles point for the Terriers as they used two service breaks to get past Rick van de Bovenkamp and Sam Parfitt 8-4. 

 

Bartholomy gave the Terriers a quick 2-0 leaded after the start of singles play as he defeated Rudell 6-0, 6-0 on court No. 6. Manlow picked up the first set in his match on court No. 2 and was up two love in the second when his opponent Vostrikov retired due to a back injury. For the third time this year, van Wyk clinched the match for the Terriers as he had no trouble dispatching Parfitt on court No. 4 6-2, 6-0. Donald  then gave the Terriers a 5-0 lead on court No. 5 as he easily defeated Bovenkamp 6-2, 6-2. Collins wrapped up the final win for the Terriers as he downed Butnarcuic 6-4, 6-0.
