Salisbury grabs 9-0 wins over York, Harrisburg in men's tennis action

SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury University men's tennis team rolled to a pair of victories on Sunday afternoon, taking down York College of Pennsylvania and Penn State University-Harrisburg, each by 9-0 scores at the SU Tennis Courts.

Salisbury 9, York 0

The Sea Gulls opened the day with three doubles wins, as junior Shanon Gunther and freshman Sean Ngo got things going with an 8-1 win at No. 2, followed quickly by seniors Adam Goldberger and Demetri Vrahnos at No. 3. The top doubles match pitting Salisbury senior Daniel Albers and junior Eric Spangler against York's Kaltrin Bullaj and Daniel Erk was the closest of the morning, but the Sea Gull pair pulled away late for an 8-4 win.

Singles play was just as one-sided, with no Sea Gull allowing more than three games to his Spartan (7-5, 1-3 CAC) counterpart. Albers earned a 6-0, 6-1 win in the top singles spot while Gunther followed with a 6-2, 6-0 win at No. 4.

Spangler gained the only 6-0, 6-0 win of the morning for Salisbury, at No. 2, while Ngo collected a 6-2, 6-1 win at No. 5. Goldberger and Vrahnos closed out the Salisbury scoring, with Goldberger winning 6-1, 6-0 at No. 6 and Vrahnos closing out a 6-3, 6-0 win at No. 3.

In their second game, the Sea Gulls (11-3, 4-0 CAC) again picked up quick wins, as Albers and Spangler paired up for an 8-1 win at No. 1 doubles, and Gunther and Ngo did the same at No. 2. Goldberger and sophomore Grant Hudson put Salisbury out to a 3-0 lead with their 8-3 win at No. 3.

Albers and Spangler, ranked No. 5 in the Atlantic South region in doubles play, remained perfect on the season at the top spot with 12 wins.

Hudson raced out to a 6-0 win in his first set at No. 5 singles, and grabbed the second, 6-0, for the win before Gunther and Albers finished at nearly the same time, at No. 3 and No. 1, respectively. Gunther won 6-1, 6-1 and Albers prevailed 6-0, 6-4.

Goldberger collected a 6-0, 6-0 win at No. 4 followed by Vrahnos, with a 6-2, 6-0 win at No. 2, and freshman Noah Orders, with a 6-1, 6-1 win at No. 6.
