LOGAN, Utah - Boise State opened Mountain West Conference play Sunday afternoon at defending champion Utah State where the Broncos fell to the Aggies 4-0.

The match opened with a tightly contested doubles point where the Broncos came up on the short end of the scores. The Aggies took No. 1 singles 7-5 over Boise State’s Kyle Butters and Jack Heslin, followed by a 6-4 loss on court two by Ryland McDermott and Matteo Tinelli. The pair of wins by Utah State handed the Aggies the team point and stopped the No. 3 doubles match, featuring the Broncos’ Wyatt DeMulling and Stefan Lalovic, tied at 6-6.

The team victory was decided when the Aggies claimed three-straight singles matches over Boise State’s DeMulling (6-0, 6-4) on court four, Butters (6-3, 6-2) on court three and Matteo Tinelli (6-2, 6-4) at No. 2 singles.

Jack Heslin was in a tight battle on court one down 7-5, 5-5 with Jaime Barajas when the contest was abandoned with the team victory. No. 5 and 6 singles had just began when the Aggies clinched the match.

The loss drops the Broncos to 1-4 on the season who will be back in action when they travel to Salt Lake City, Utah, next Friday to face the Utah Utes.
