The Bulldogs clinched the match as Seal defeated Ward, 7-5, 6-3. The teams played out the match on the top court as Nott and Schnugg battled in a tightly contested match. Nott owned the early advantage taking the first set 6-3, but Schnugg rallied back to even the score at a set apiece. The duo continued to battle but Schnugg was able to break Nott to pull away with the match in the third set tiebreaker, 3-6, 6-1, 7-6(6).
Senior Bradwin Williams dropped the first set to Will Oliver but was making a strong 3-0 comeback in the second set before the match was suspended.
