Coastal Continues Streak Versus Winthrop
CONWAY - The Coastal Carolina men's tennis team extended its current winning streak to five matches Tuesday afternoon as the Chanticleers blanked Winthrop, 4-0, at the Stevens Tennis Complex.
Coastal (11-7) won a hard-fought doubles point, and followed with singles points on the second, fifth and sixth courts to close out the match.
Francesco Migliano and Francesco Cori Gamero opened the match with a 6-2 doubles win on the third court. The point was evened shortly after, as Winthrop's second pairing of Ruy Teixeira and Josh Ryan edged Zak Talic and Sebastian Schneider, 7-5.
Jose Ortega provided Coastal's first singles point at No. 6 with a 6-2, 6-3 victory over Josh Ryan. Talic extended Coastal's lead with a 7-5, 6-1 win at No. 5, and Faria provided the match-clinching point at No. 2 in straight sets against Teixeira.
The matches on the remaining courts went unfinished.
The Chants are back in action tomorrow, April 5, when they host Charlotte for an 11 a.m. match. The contest was originally scheduled for 1 p.m., but the time was pushed up due to tomorrow's weather forecast.
