The BYU men’s tennis team was unable to come back against Denver, losing the match 4-1 on Friday night.

“I don’t think we ever had the energy we needed tonight,” BYU head coach Brad Pearce said. “We let six break points in doubles slip away and had chances in singles, but couldn’t capitalize.”

The Cougars started the match slow and dropped the doubles point. Pairs Jacob Sullivan and David Ball, as well as Francis Sargeant and Andrey Goryachov, both fell to their opponents six to three.

In singles play, the Cougars started off strong as Sargeant took his first set, but then fell in three sets to No. 64 overall ranked Henry Craig of the Pioneers. Denver took the singles point and the overall victory.

The Cougars look to bounce back Saturday, Feb. 14 as they face the University of Iowa at 1:00 p.m. in the Indoor Tennis Courts.
