Anteaters Stamped Out by No. 22 Broncos

BOISE, Idaho --- UC Irvine played 22nd-ranked Boise State straight up in a 5-2 loss at Appleton Tennis Center Friday afternoon.

The Broncos took the doubles point rather easily for the early edge. Ryan Cheung and Caryl Hernandez took to the court for a second time this season, but had their match stopped in a 6-6 draw.

Singles was a straight-set affair in five of the six matches. Tyler Pham claimed his match at No. 2 singles. Caryl Hernandez at No. 5 singles supplied the lone three-set match, and after dropping the opening set, scored wins in the following sets to secure the 'Eaters' 11th come-from-behind victory and its second point of the match.

For UCI (9-14), it remains in Boise for one more day to take on the Idaho Vandals, Sat. April 12 at 5:00 p.m.
