Eagles Fall 5-4 To Conclude Arcadia Match
The No. 3 singles match between Eastern's Tyler Schultz and Alexander Colton was the deciding match. They were knotted up 1-1 going into the third set when the match was suspended. Colton held off Schultz 4-6, 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (7-2) to clinch the win for the Knights. Schultz trailed 5-4 with Colton at match point, but rallied for three straight points to tie the third set at five games a piece. Schultz then broke Colton's serve to take a 6-5 lead. Colton then broke Shultz's serve to force a tie-breaker game, and Colton pulled away 7-2 in the breaker.
