March 25, 2006

LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. - The Holy Cross men's tennis team fell for the second straight day by a score of 7-0 as they dropped a match on Saturday at Rider. The senior duo of John Deaver (St. Louis, Mo.) and Colin Missett (Southington, Conn.) picked up the lone Crusader victory on the day.

Deaver and Missett battled to a 9-7 victory at the number three doubles but Holy Cross was unable to get another win to pick up the doubles point.

Missett had the best chance for a singles vicotory in his six spot but fell in three sets to Jeremy Finkelson of Rider.

Freshmen Angelo Sica (Chester, N.J.) and Jay DeSanto (Dalton, Pa.) each lost tough matches at their respective third and fourth singles matches.

The Crusaders will be back in action Tuesday, March 28 when they host Rhode Island at 3:30 p.m.
