HANOVER, N.H. – Dartmouth women’s tennis fell to Boston College, 5-2, at the Boss Tennis Center on Friday evening. The Big Green dipped to 3-2, while the Eagles improved to 3-1.
BC soon had a 3-0 advantage following wins at No. 4 and 6, but back-to-back Dartmouth wins got the Big Green back in the game. At the No. 5 position, sophomore Allison McCann had a 6-3, 6-2 victory over Dasha Possokhova, while Schroeder had a 7-5, 7-5 defeat of Kylie Wilcox at No. 2.
The Eagles clinched at the No. 3 spot, but senior Kristina Mathis kept fighting against Asiya Dair at the top spot. The Big Green senior played two very close sets, but was narrowly edged in the tiebreak.
