PORTLAND - Competing in its third match in as many days, UC Davis suffered its first defeat during its current four-match, four-day road swing through Oregon as the Aggies fell 7-0 against the University of Portland Pilots in Sunday's non-conference match at the Louisiana-Pacific Tennis Center.
UC Davis will enter Monday morning's match against Portland State with a 3-3 overall record, Portland improves its record to 4-1.
Brett Bacharach and George Horowitz came the closest to defeating the host Pilots in the round of doubles matches as the pair was leading 7-4 against Portland's Paxton Deuel/Kent Andreasen before their match ended prematurely.
Hugo Verdi-Fortin and Bacharach nearly forced a third set in their respective singles matches; against Deuel, Verdi-Fortin was unable to secure the service break needed in the second set to prolong his match. Bacharach experienced a similar situation in his singles match as he could not break Justin Guay's serve to force a tiebreaker in his second set.
UC Davis will end its road trip against Portland State on Monday, Feb. 4, in an 11:30 a.m. match at Club Green Meadows in Vancouver, Wash.
