Lobos Fall to Conference Team Boise State at Home
March 24, 2012
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.—The Lobos had a hard fought battle against Boise State in the first conference match of the season. The Lobos were defeated at home with a score of 6-1.
At the start of the match, the Lobos seemed to be fairly even with the Broncos in doubles.
At number two doubles, Kristin Eggleston/Michaela Bezdickova were only two games shy of winning as they lost to Vo/Basil 8-6.
The Lobos were down 0-1 leading into singles.
At number one singles, Michaela Bezdickova had a hard battle against her opponent Sonia Klamczynska falling with a score of 6-3, 6-2.
Freshman Susanna Kuuttila played at the number two spot against Junior Marlena Pietzuch. It was a tough match but it seems experience played a key role as Susanna Kuuttila was defeated with a score of 6-2, 6-4.
At number six singles, Michaela Oldani came out on top as she defeated her opponent Kaitlyn Brown with a score of 7-5, 6-4.
The pressure to win the match was displayed in all of the players out on the court as they fell to Boise State 6-1.
“We played a little tight and a little nervous. It was the first conference match and we wanted it real bad,” Head Coach Roy Canada said.
The Lobos will have to come out with a different mentality tomorrow according to player Susanna Kuuttila.
“We need to play to win. We were playing with heart today, but we were also playing not to lose. I think tomorrow we just have to give it our all and leave everything out on the court.”
The Lobos will play their second conference match of the season at home against Air Force tomorrow at 2 p.m.
