Appalachian State University men's tennis saw its two-match winning streak come to an end with a 4-2 loss at Coastal Carolina on Friday at the Billy Nichols Tennis Center.


The Mountaineers (2-2) picked up wins at No. 2 and No. 6 singles, but could not overcome a touch Chanticleer (5-3) squad, which won four singles flights, avoiding having to face Appalachian in doubles play.


Oliver Casey remained undefeated on the year as he picked up a 6-3, 6-2 win at No. 2 while Matt Saltsgaver earned Appalachian's second point with a 7-6, 6-1 win at No. 6.


It was all Chanticleers beyond that as App State's Sebastien King lost to the 109th ranked player in the nation, Coastal's Philipp Tsangaridis by a 6-2, 6-2 score at No. 1 singles.


Daniel Hoang won the first set at No. 3, but eventually fell by a score of 4-6, 6-0, 6-2 while Zach Bost dropped a straight-set decision (6-4, 6-0) at No. 4 and Jack Maddocks also fell in straight sets by a 7-6, 6-1 score at No. 6.


Coastal Carolina clinched the match with the win at No. 3 singles, which was the fifth match to finish before Saltsgaver's win gave Appalachian a point for the 4-2 final.


The Mountaineers will remain in Conway where they will take on Richmond tomorrow at 11 a.m. to wrap up the weekend.
