EUGENE, Ore. - Lewis Roskilly won in straight sets at No. 6 singles to record Boise State’s lone point in a 6-1 defeat at the hands of 37th-ranked Oregon Sunday afternoon in Eugene, Ore. The loss snaps a two-match win streak for 67th-ranked Boise State as the Broncos move to 7-5 overall on the season.

The day opened with the Ducks claiming the doubles team point with victories on courts one and two. Boise State’s pair of Brian Foley and Pedro Platzeck were leading their match 5-4 on court three when play was suspended once the team point had been decided.

Oregon claimed a 3-0 lead with victories over Boise State’s Abe Hewko 6-2, 6-4 on court four, followed by a 6-3, 6-1 decision on court one over Foley.

Boise State’s lone break through came on court six where Roskilly put away Ethan Young-Smith in two sets 7-6 (5), 6-4. The victory made the team score 3-1 in favor of the Ducks and improved Roskilly to 7-9 in singles on the year.

The final two singles matches went to third sets before Oregon won both. Toby Mitchell battled Oregon’s 49th-ranked Daan Maasland winning the first set before the Duck rallied to force a set three. Maasland eventually outlasted Mitchell to win 3-6, 6-3, 6-2.

Boise State freshman Pedro Platzeck won his first set in commanding fashion 6-1, before his opponent Cormac Clissold came back to force a set three. Unfortunately, Platzeck lost a heartbreaker dropping two tiebreakers 1-6, 7-6 (3), 7-6 (5) as Clissold rallied to claim the win.
