West Point, GA – The Emmanuel College Lions Tennis team traveled this Saturday to the home courts of Point University for another dual match. Both teams were looking for their second consecutive win in the season.
In doubles play, the Skyhawks proved to be a tough competitor by taking all three points. With an aggressive game play and a slow start from the Lions, Point started singles play with a 3-0 lead.
Emmanuel picked up the pace and fought back during singles play capturing 2 points with Lucas Pereira and Enrique Alcacer. The Freshmen Guillaume Watteeuw and Jorge Canadas gave their best but fell just short of giving EC a pair of wins.
