The Governors (3-9) knew they would face a tough task, as the Blazers (2-3) came in as the No. 14 ranked team in Division II.

The Blazers got off to a hot start, winning at No. 1 and No. 2 doubles rather comfortably to take a 1-0 lead into singles.

Ozelis knotted the match up at 1-1 after his 6-3, 6-1 win over Jordi Mas at No. 1 singles. Ozelis has now won his last two singles matches and is 6-4 overall this spring, with all matches played at the No. 1 spot.

Unfortunately for the Govs, Ozelis’s victory could not spur them on, as the Blazers won in straight sets at No. 3 through No. 5 singles to claim the match.

The Govs return from their road journey to face off with Butler, 10:00am, next Wednesday, March 13th.
