It didn’t take the APSU Governors long to set the tone in the match, with Christian Edison and Gabriel Nolasco Pozo winning in the No. 3 doubles position to kick off the match.

Anton Damberg and Frederic Schlossmann followed suit in the No. 1 doubles match, picking up their third win of the season to claim the doubles point for the APSU  Govs.

With the doubles point already decided, Oliver Andersson and Jacob Lorino led 5-3 in the No. 2 doubles match, but it was left unfinished.

Needing just one point to put the match on ice, Andersson rolled in the No. 3 singles match to put the Govs up 4-0 and secure the first win of the season.

With the match in hand and three singles matches left on the court, the Governors made sure to leave no doubt. The No. 4 and No. 5 matches were the next on the board, with Damberg and Lorino winning handily to give Austin Peay State University a 6-0 lead.
