Kansas City, MO-The Oral Roberts women's tennis team dropped their lone match of the day, falling 5-2 to Summit League foe Southern Utah Friday afternoon at the Plaza Tennis Center.

Iryna Khatsko earned a victory for the Golden Eagles in #1 singles, cruising to a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Southern Utah's Ksusha Nazarova.

In #6 singles, it was ORU's Rachel Scroggs who snagged the second and final point of the day for the Golden Eagles with a 7-5, 6-4 defeat of Afton Staheli.

The duo of Khatsko and Lina Semenova grabbed an 8-6 #1 doubles win over Nazarova and Olia Tatarchenko, but the doubles point eventually went to the Thunderbirds who clawed out victories in the 2 and 3 matches.

With the loss, ORU stumbles to 2-7 on the year and 1-2 in Summit League action. The Golden Eagles wrap up the Summit Cluster on Saturday, as they take on the Oakland Golden Grizzlies at 9:00 a.m.
