Men’s Tennis Sweeps Portland, 4-0 on Friday
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Santa Clara men's tennis swept a short-handed Portland squad, 4-0 in a West Coast Conference match on Friday afternoon to extend its win streak to seven matches. 
Freshman Arthur Neuhaus recorded the match clincher with a straight set victory over Leo Hibi on court five, 6-3, 6-4 to help the Broncos (11-3, 2-1 WCC) remain undefeated at home at 7-0. 
Portland (5-10, 0-3 WCC) was short one player and had to forfeit at the No. 3 spot in doubles and also at the No. 6 singles.  
With the doubles forfeiture, Santa Clara needed to win only one of the two doubles matches as Andrew Gu and Robert Seby beat Eleftherios Neos and Sema Pankin, 6-4 on court one to put the Broncos up 1-0 in the team score.  
After the singles forfeiture gave SCU a 2-0 lead, Connor Garnett put the Broncos up 3-0 with a straight set triumph over Nicklas Oberg, 6-2, 6-1 on court two.  
Neuhaus' match clincher helped mark the first win over Portland during Bronco head coach Niall Angus' four year tenure with the program, including one as an assistant coach.    
Santa Clara face Gonzaga on Saturday at 11 a.m.
