|Women's tennis wins thriller|
MOSCOW, Idaho - Despite dropping the doubles point and starting slow in singles, the Idaho Women's tennis team managed to pull off a come from behind victory over Nevada at the Memorial Gym tennis courts in Moscow.
Idaho lost the doubles point by the slimmest of margins, losing in a tiebreak at the top spot after the Vandals and Wolf Pack split the No. 2 and No. 3 doubles matches.
The Vandals fell behind 2-0 early in singles play as Victoria Lozano fell 6-0, 6-3 at the top singles spot. After Almudena Sanz lost at No. 2 singles, but Sophie Vickers, Alejandra Lozano and Beatriz Flores won their singles matches, the decision came down to the third set at No. 3 singles, where Idaho senior Molly Knox overcame a 6-1 loss in the first set to win 1-6, 6-4, 6-4 and clinch the team victory for Idaho.
"For us to win we need every girl to play their best at every position," Idaho coach Dan Pollock said. "This team just keeps battling and fighting through. They're cheering for each other and they want to win for each other. Nobody wants to let their teammates down."
The win extends Idaho's win streak to five matches, its longest of the season. The Vandals improve to 16-5 on the season and 1-1 in Western Athletic Conference play.
Idaho will return to action at 11 a.m. on Saturday when it hosts the Oregon Ducks at the Memorial Gym courts.
