Eskeland Slams the Door on ACU

March 2, 2018

Box Score

Jacob Eskeland stormed back from a tight loss in the second set to provide the clinching point as the Rice men’s tennis team fought off a determined effort by Abilene Christian to down the Wildcats 4-3 at the Eager Tennis Center in Abilene.

Playing for the first time at home in the 15-game series with the Owls, the Wildcats answered each of the Owls points with one of their own until the match came down to Eskeland’s court where he and ACU’s Niko Moceanu had split the first two sets. Eskeland put an end to the Wildcats hopes for a first win against Rice by taking the third set, 6-1.

The Owls will wrap up their swing through west Texas on Sunday when they face 31st ranked Texas Tech on Sunday at 1 p.m.
