MEDIA, Pa. – The Saint Joseph's men's tennis team notched its second win in a row on Saturday night, topping Fairfield by a 6-1 score at the Springton Indoor Tennis Club.  Three Hawks came away with two wins apiece on the day.

Saint Joseph's (3-2) grabbed an early edge by taking  the doubles point.  Junior Peter Dewitt and sophomore Tim Stierle combined for a 6-2 win in the first flight, and after the visitors claimed a victory in the third, senior Kyle Chalmers and sophomore Dan Tan sealed the point with a 7-5 win in the second flight matchup.

Senior Tristan Boustany made quick work of his fourth-flight singles opponent, taking a 6-2, 6-4 result, but Fairfield (3-3) got back into the match with a win in the first singles flight.  It was all Hawks after that, however, as Stierle's 6-3, 6-4 win in the second flight and sophomore Andre Fick's 7-6 (8), 7-5 triumph in the third clinched the victory.

Dewitt and Tan finished things off with wins in the sixth and fifth flights, respectively.  Dewitt was a 6-1, 6-1 straight-sets winner, while Tan's 2-6, 6-3, 12-10 supertiebreaker victory closed out the evening.

"This was a tough battle, but our improvement in doubles play was evident at the outset," head coach Ian Crookenden said.  "Kyle had a tough night finding his form, as can happen to the best of us, but strong quick results from Tristan and Tim helped us reach a 3-1 lead.

"At that point, Fairfield really fought hard, knowing that the loss of another match would give us the team win, and it was tough going before we put the match away with tense points at number three before Andre clinched it.  We also had a great come-from-behind fiht from Dan and a quick win from Peter to close out a tense, exciting contest to put us above .500 for the season heading into a conference battle with Saint Louis."

The Hawks are back in action for a pair of contests next weekend as they host Saint Louis on Friday and Delaware on Saturday at Springton.
