Grant Williams won 6-3, 6-2 at second singles to put the Eagles up 4-3.

RADNOR, Pa.- In the third contest of their season-opening road trip, Eastern University Men's Tennis did not have to travel far. The Eagles battled Eagle Road neighbor Cabrini College for nearly four hours. With two matches still on the courts and Eastern up 4-3, rains came in and the match had to be suspended until April 8.

The host Cavaliers had the best of it in doubles play. Cabrini rolled through the third doubles match 8-3 and earned tight wins at the top two doubles spots.

Down 3-0, the Eagles had very little margin for error, and in the first four matches to hit the courts, the Eagles were on point. Jason Spargo won 6-3,6-2 at sixth singles, and Cody Todd ground out a tough 6-3, 7-5 win at fifth singles.

Mylon Weaver and Grant Williams worked through their matches in straight sets at the number four and two flights to put the Eagles up 4-3 with two matches to play.

The Cavaliers grabbed the early advantage in both those matches with first-set wins, but Dan Fowler was up 5-2 in the second set at first singles, and Tyler Schultz battle back to take the second set of his match 6-3. Eastern need to win one of those matches to take the rivalry win.

Eastern continues their traveling ways with a trip to Lancaster Bible tomorrow and a doubleheader match with the women at Stevenson on Thursday. Stevenson is the first Freedom Conference contest of the year.
