IUPUI grabbed an early advantage, as the Jaguars knocked off Christian Edison and Thiago Nogueira in the No. 3 doubles bout to start the match. The No. 1 doubles match was the next to-go final, with the Jaguars beating Frederic Schlossmann and Anton Damberg to claim the doubles point.

With the doubles point already decided, the No. 2 doubles match was left unfinished with Oliver Andersson and Jacob Lorino trailing, 5-4.

In singles action the No. 2 and No. 6 matches were the first to go on the board, with Schlossmann and Nogueira falling to give IUPUI a 3-0 lead. The Governors comeback attempt started in the No. 5 match, where Lorino knocked off IUPUI’s Blessing Benibo to pick up his first match win of the season and get the Governors on the scoreboard.

With the match still in reach, Andersson and Damberg picked up their season’s first match wins in the No. 3 and No. 4 singles tilts, respectively, to tie the match at 3 with just the No. 1 singles duel left to play. However, the Govs comeback ran out of steam and Edison fell to Ethan Mardanus-Budiono in a hard-fought third-set tiebreaker.
