EAGLE, Idaho - Boise State split its matches Saturday at the Eagle Tennis Club, grinding out an impressive 5-0 victory over instate-rival Idaho State in the morning before falling, 4-2, to BYU in the evening.

After Boise State took the doubles point 2-0, the Broncos earned singles victories from Jack Heslin, Brian Tran, Pedro Platzeck and Greg Wischer to secure the victory. All six singles matches went to three sets with the last two abandoned once the victory was clinched.


The win improved Boise State to 2-6 overall with a match Saturday night at 6 p.m. against Brigham Young, Idaho State moved to 2-3 overall.

Platzeck and Harvey Shackleton started the ball rolling for the Broncos when they defeated Idaho State's Bjorn Scheepbouwer and Keegan Sullivan 6-2 at No. 2 doubles.

The clinching win for the doubles team point came on court one where Kyle Butters and Heslin dispatched ISU's Sebastian Edin and Josh Goodwin 6-3.

Singles was a battle on all fronts going to three sets on every court as the Broncos grounded out four victories to secure the win. Heslin earned the first win for the blue and orange at No. 1 singles where he downed ISU's Sebastian Edin 6-1, 1-6, 6-1.

Sophomore Greg Wischer recorded the second victory for Boise State on court six where he rallied from one set down to defeat the Bengals' Haseeb Khan 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 to make the team score 3-0.

The next two matches finished moments apart starting with the victory clinching win by Brian Tran on court two. The freshman from Australia also rallied from a set down to dispatch ISU's Goodwin 5-7, 6-3, 6-0 making the team score 4-0 Boise State.

The last match completed was No. 3 singles where Platzeck defeated Francis Filipovich 6-3, 1-6, 6-4.

In the evening, the Broncos gave BYU all it could handle before falling just short. Platzeck and Tran cruised past BYU's tandem of John Pearce and Matthew Pearce, 6-3, to give the Broncos the advantage. But the Cougars would rally to win each of the two remaining matches in the tiebreaker to steal the doubles point as Aidan Carrazedo and Sam Tullis beat Stone and Wischer, 7-6 (3), and Jeremy Bourgeois and Jake Sullivan outlasted Butters and Heslin, 7-6 (4).

The early edge went to BYU in the singles matches as Tullis defeated Stone in straight sets (6-2, 6-3) and Matthew Pearce beat Platzeck 7-5, 6-3.

The Broncos rallied back, however, with Tran bouncing back after dropping the first set to claim the next two and a 3-6, 6-2, 6-3 victory over Bourgeois, and Butters beating Keaton Cullimore, 7-6 (4), 7-5. The wins pulled the Broncos back to within a point of the Cougars with the final two matches each in the third set. It would be BYU, however, that would clinch the match with a victory at No. 6 singles, as Carrazedo completed his comeback win over Wischer, 3-6, 6-4, 7-5.

At No. 2 singles, the match between Heslin and Sullivan was stopped with the pair at a stalemate, having each won a set and tied 3-3 in the final set.
