Appalachian State men’s tennis hosted Georgia Southern in its second home match this week, but was unable to overcome the SoCon foe, dropping a 4-3 decision Friday evening at Deer Valley Racquet Club.

The Mountaineers (4-9, 2-2 SoCon), who played only their second match at home after completing seven straight matches on the road, split the week after blanking Davidson on Wednesday in a 7-0 decision.
Appalachian swept past the Eagles (7-5, 3-1 SoCon) in doubles play with lead pair Sebastien King and Zach Bost extending their win streak to four after posting a 9-7 victory against Marco Osorio and Rayane Djouad at No. 1. Andrew McKinnon and Jen-Willem Kleynhans defeated GSU’s Kyle Hoffman and Andrew Dromsky in an 8-4 final at the No. 2 spot, while Steve Lake and Steve Karendal grabbed a 9-8 victory versus Matthijs Verdam and Alex Doherty in No. 3 doubles for an early Mountaineer lead (1-0).
The Apps opened singles action with King grabbing his sixth consecutive singles victory after defeating Dromsky in a three-set thriller (7-5, 4-6, 7-6). GSU responded with a 6-3, 4-3 win at No. 2, but Bost fought back, picking up a 6-4, 7-5 win over Verdam at No. 3 and edging Appalachian ahead, 3-1.
The Eagles were hardly ready to give up, however, as they posted wins at No’s. 4, 5, and 6 for the comeback victory. Appalachian’s McKinnon battled to the end at No. 4, falling 7-5, 7-5, while Matt Saltsgaver also dropped a 7-5, 7-5 decision at No. 5. GSU rounded out its 4-3 victory when Kleynhans fell with a 6-3, 6-4 loss at No. 6.
The Mountaineers will remain home for their next match on March 29 when they face conference opponent UNCG at 2 p.m.
