LEWISTON, Maine – Bates College men's tennis almost picked up a pair of points before falling to No. 3 nationally-ranked Amherst College, 9-0, at a sun-splashed Wallach Tennis Center on Saturday.

The Bobcats (4-7, 1-2 NESCAC) nearly earned wins in first and second doubles, but the Lord Jeffs (23-2, 2-0 NESCAC) pulled out the victories for the sweep.

Senior Timmy Berg (Bradenton, Fla.) won the first set at the No. 1 singles spot, 7-5, before conceding the second set to No. 14 Joey Fritz, 6-2. Fritz then took the tiebreaker 10-7.

Across the way at the No. 2 spot, junior Pierre Planche (Natick, Mass.) captured a 6-3 first set win before narrowly falling in the second set, 7-6 (6), to Chris Dale. Dale gained the edge in the tiebreaker, 10-5.

First-year Christopher Ellis (Shrewsbury, Mass.) pushed Michael Solimano at the No. 3 singles position before absorbing a 6-3, 6-4 defeat.

Next, Bates hosts Tufts on Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. while Amherst plays at Bowdoin tomorrow at 2 p.m.
