Comeback Falls Short vs. Tulsa

Jan 28, 2022

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Oregon nearly came back from an early deficit but ultimately came up short in a 4-2 loss to Tulsa to open play at the ITA Kickoff Weekend Friday morning.
How it Happened: After dropping the doubles point and the first two singles matches, Oregon battled back in the second half of singles play. Freshman Karin Young made quick work of her opponent in her first collegiate match, winning 6-3, 6-1 at the No. 5 spot to put the Ducks on the board. Sophie Luescher and Lillian Mould then forced third sets at the No. 1 and 3 spots after dropping their first sets to extend the match.
Mould was tied 3-3 in the third set, but lost the final three games of the deciding set to fall 6-1, 4-6, 6-3 to clinch the match for the Golden Hurricane. Ares Teixido Garcia picked up Oregon's second point shortly before that, winning 6-2, 5-7, 6-4 at No. 4. Luescher's match against No. 91 Laia Conde Monfort remained unfinished at 5-7, 7-5, 0-1.
The Ducks fell into an early hole by dropping the doubles point, as Texido Garcia and Petchey lost, 6-3, at No. 3 doubles before Mould and Allison Mulville fell 6-4 at the No. 1 spot.
