The Lady Govs (2-8, 0-1 OVC) struggled in their first conference outing, forcing just one singles match into a third set. Junior Andra Cornea pushed Milena Poffo into a final set in No. 3 singles, eventually falling 6-0, 4-6, 10-2.

Even the Lady Govs doubles, which had been a staple of good play of late, struggled Saturday. Austin Peay dropped the doubles point, with Cornea and sophomore Ornella Di Salvo falling 8-4 to Eastern Kentucky’s (8-5, 1-0 OVC) Melissa Gerritsen and Kristina Labeja in No. 1 singles.

Austin Peay will need to rebound quickly from the defeat, when they host Morehead State, 10:00am, Sunday, in Clarksville.
