Ephs Slide Past St. Lawrence 5-4

WILLIAMSTOWN, MA - On senior day, the team's final home match of the season, the #17 ranked Ephs (9-5) performed well to deliver a 5-4 win over #25 St. Lawrence (3-11).

Freshman Udai Pal (#3), junior AJ Solecki (#6), and freshman Charles "Chas" Merrill (#8) spearheaded the Ephs' charge in the first round of play. Pal came up against one of a few exceptionally difficult players at the top side of the St. Lawrence lineup, and battled hard but was beaten 3-0. Solecki and Merrill were up to the task and took care of business with a pair of 3-0 wins of their own.

Next on were junior Wyatt Khosrowshahi (#2), senior co-captain Carl Shuck (#5), and senior David Pincus (#7). In similar fashion to Pal, Khosrowshahi gave his best efforts but also succombed to a 3-0 defeat. Pincus was in control throughout and won 3-0. Shuck, whose match was touted in advance as being perhaps the most crucial of the day, put in a great performance and contributed a key 3-0 win.

With one point standing between the Ephs and a win on the day, freshman Jacob Bassil (#1), senior co-captain Will Means (#4), and junior Tucker van Eck (#9) took to the court. van Eck took control and was able to deliver the all-important win with a strong 3-0 showing. Bassil and Means came up against a tough pair of opponents, and each fell 3-0.

The team will look to build on the momentum of the victory on Sunday, as the men travel to Tufts for a 3pm matchup at Harvard's Murr Center.
