Rams Fall in Close Match at Staten Island
College of Staten Island - 5, Farmingdale State - 4
Staten Island, N.Y. - The Farmingdale State men's tennis team lost a close match, 5-4, to Staten Island (6-4) on Saturday afternoon at the CSI Tennis Center in Staten Island, N.Y. The Rams (3-1) fell behind 2-1 after doubles play, but swept the Dolphin's fourth, fifth and singles players for three wins in singles play.
The top 3 singles matches were hard fought matches, but Staten Island would come out on top. Freshman Christian Bormann (Huntington, N.Y.) lost the first set at #1 singles against Nick Zikos 7-5, but a 6-6 tie in the second set would force his tiebreaker match, eventually falling 7-4.
The Rams are set to host Yeshiva on Wednesday night, April 6th at 8:00 p.m. in a Skyline Conference match.
