Bobcats Drop Non-Conference Match to Bearcats, 7-0

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The Quinnipiac University men's tennis team was defeated by Binghamton University on Saturday night, as the Bobcats dropped a 7-0 decision to the Bearcats at the Paul Bailey Pizzitola Memorial Sports Center in Providence, R.I.

Similar to the first match of the day, Eric Ambrosio (Lloyd Harbor, N.Y.) nearly escaped with a victory, but instead suffered a three-set loss at #3. Ambrosio was defeated by Ismael Dinia, 6-7, 6-1, 6-2, for his third dual-mater loss of the season. Also taking the court for the Bobcats was Sebastian Barbero (Buenos Aires, Argentina), Fahoum Fahoum (Haifa, Israel), Luke Roser (Bernardsville, N.J.), John Petrini (Stamford, Conn.) and Corey Morgenstern (Old Bethpage, N.Y.), who all took losses in singles competition.

The Bobcats began the match in search for the doubles point, but Binghamton prevailed in all three pairings. Fahoum and Roser put together the best effort with an 8-5 loss at #1 to Robin Lesage and Ismael Dinia.

The Bobcats return to the courts on February 10 against Boston University in Massachusetts. First serve is set for 3 p.m. at the BU Track & Tennis Center.
