WALTHAM, Mass. – Assumption rode a 3-0 advantage from doubles to a 5-4 victory over the Bentley University women's tennis team in a Northeast-10 match on Tuesday.

In the No. 4 match, Tiffany Suchanek (Waterville, Maine/Waterville) battled to a three set victory. After she took the first set 6-2, she dropped the second 6-1, but responded in a big way with a 10-5 victory in the third and final set to claim the point.

Senior Katie Brandow (East Northport, N.Y.Northport) claimed a 7-6, 6-4 victory in the No. 5 match for Bentley's fourth point of the day.

The Falcons drop to 6-3 overall and 3-3 in NE10 matches on the season. They'll be back in action on Friday at Saint Anselm.
