won the doubles point and I think that really took the wind out
of their sails," head coach Michael Starke said of the lopsided
result. "We expect nothing less than a dogfight next time
we see them. I thought we played with a lot of poise and professional
character today. We fought like a championship team fights."
In singles, Dobrin clinched the team win with his 6-2, 6-4 triumph at No. 3. Earlier, junior Edwin Gerard (Bayside, N.Y.) posted a straight-set win at No. 5 and junior Richemn Mourad (Sao Paulo, Brazil) received a win when his opponent retired with an injury. Dobrin raised his record to 22-5 overall, 17-3 in dual matches.
Though the team victory was clinched, the match at No. 1 was a heavyweight battle between two nationally-ranked players. Binghamton sophomore Dan Hanegby (Herzliya, Israel) outlasted Stony Brook's Jan Krejci, 11-9 in a third-set super tiebreak. Hanegby saved a match point at 8-9 before claiming the win with a crosscourt passing shot on the forehand. Hanegby, 26-7 overall, is No. 87 in the ITA national rankings, while Krejci was No. 100 earlier in the fall.
O'Connor posted a straight-set win at No. 6 - his 18th of the season.
