NORTHRIDGE, Calif. ---

The Cal State Northridge women's tennis team (9-7, 3-3 Big West) lost 7-0 to Long Beach State Saturday afternoon in a Big West Conference match at the Rhodes Tennis Center. CSUN threatened to take the doubles point and Alexis Marquez forced a decisive third set, but the Matadors were swept by the 49ers.

In doubles action, seniors Sabrina Man-Son-Hing and Anna Yang suffered their second-straight loss. The duo fell 8-5 in doubles and are now 13-2 on the season in No. 1 doubles play.

The Matadors' No. 2 doubles team, Maria Pistalu and Lorraine Cheung, also suffered a narrow 8-5 defeat to Long Beach State.

In singles action, Marquez won the second set of her sixth draw in a tiebreaker to force a decisive third set. However, she ultimately lost 7-5, 6-7 (3), 11-9. Every other Matador lost in straight sets.

Northridge will look to snap the skid with a similarily tough challenge with a home match against UC Irvine on April 6. First serve is slated for 11 a.m.
