Lumberjacks executed on the chopping block

Axed.
The UNM men’s tennis team swiftly dispatched Northern Arizona 7-0 on Sunday at the Linda Estes Tennis Center.
The Lobos, 5-7 overall, relinquished a combined five games to the Lumberjacks (8-6) during doubles play.

No. 1 doubles partners Jadon Phillips and Phil Anderson easily subdued the Lumberjacks’ duo of Kevin Taylor and Josh Brown, 8-1, while Joe Wood and Carl Ho beat Hugo Ramadier and David Flodberg identically, 8-1. Solidifying the third doubles match, Lobos Ben Dunbar and Conor Berg beat NAU’s Patrick Schimmelbauer and Robin Pezzutto, 8-3.

UNM earned the doubles point for the first time in six matches, something not lost to head coach Alan Dils.
“We’ve worked on a few things — especially in doubles,” Dils said in a press release. “We wanted to be more aggressive — more dynamic — which certainly we did. I thought we did a great job in doubles today.”

It didn’t get much better for the Lumberjacks. UNM thumped NAU during singles’ play, winning four of the six matches in slightly more than an hour.

Phillips, Anderson and Wood each won their matches 6-2, 6-0, respectively. Berg, meanwhile, beat Ben Lantz in the No. 6 match 6-1, 6-0.
“Our focus was to get up in our matches and finish it off quickly,” Phillips told GoLobos.com. “I think this was a good pre-conference match. We showed how good — how tough — we can be.”

In the lone three-set match of the day, Dunbar defeated Schimmelbauer after dropping the first set 4-6, only to reel off the next two, 6-0 and 6-1.

“It’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve played, so we we’re certainly hungry,” Dils said. “Not being able to go to Texas Tech and play a couple of matches there, we were just aching to play.”
