Jenna Laubach won seven straight games to take the second set and the match.

ST. DAVIDS, Pa.--Eastern Women's Tennis tumbled to an 8-1 loss against Misericordia University on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.

The Eagles earned their only win of the match in the No. 1 spot. Eastern sophomore Jenna Laubach trailed six games to five in the opening set, but won the next game to even the score at 6-6 and force a tiebreaker game. Laubach held on for the 7-5 tiebreaker win to clinch the first set. However, in the second set, Laubach began a tailspin and lost the first five games. One game away from losing the set, Laubach clawed her way back to win seven consecutive games and take the match 7-6, 7-5.

In the rest of the singles matches, Eastern's Kathleen Duffy was the only other player to take more than two games from a Misericordia opponent.

Eastern's doubles squads all fell by a score of 8-3.

With the loss, the Eagles are now 1-4 in the Freedom Conference. Misericordia improved to 3-2 in the conference. 

The Eagles play at West Chester University at 3:30 pm on Thursday.
