No. 21 University of Oregon grabbed the doubles point and opening score against No. 50 WSU on Sunday, but the Cougars made sure the match ended in their favor.

Junior Tiffany Mylonas evened the score by scoring the first point for WSU (15-1, 1-0) when she won her singles match. The Cougars and Ducks (10-4, 1-1) traded points in the next two matches before WSU freshman Michaela Bayerlova saw her 20-match winning streak come to an end when Oregon senior Alyssa Tobita defeated her 6-4, 2-6, 6-3.

Junior Aneta Miksovska evened the score by winning her match to give sophomore Guzal Yusupova the opportunity to clinch the meeting between the two teams, which she did in three sets.

In the match Mylonas, picked up her team-leading 26th singles win, tied for 14th in WSU’s single-season history. WSU is now 9-6 against conference rival Oregon under Head Coach Lisa Hart, after losing the three previous meetings.

Hart said she was proud of how her team rallied against the Ducks.

“Oregon is a very tough team to play,” Hart said in a WSU news release. “To beat them in Eugene after losing the doubles point says so much about the character of this team. Our players deserve this win and I could not be more proud of them.”
