BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — UTSA saw its two-match winning streak come to an end on Saturday when it dropped a 6-1 decision at Samford.

It was all Bulldogs (3-1) early, as they breezed to the doubles point with big wins.

Jessica Northcutt and Stephanie N'tcha defeated Daniela Garcia-Diaz and Alena Shichkova at the No. 2 spot, 8-1, and that was followed by an 8-2 triumph by Yasmeen Ebada and Emily Mallory that ended Lina Hallgren and Isabelle Jonsson's four-match winning streak on the third court.

The Roadrunners (3-5) were unable to get on track in singles play, as Jacobea Junger was the lone UTSA player to win a contest.

Junger rallied for a 2-6, 7-6 (7-1), 6-2 victory against Kristin Lewis at the No. 1 position for her third consecutive win and fourth overall this spring.

UTSA will continue its five-match road trip on Sunday with an 11 a.m. tilt at UAB (2-3).
