Results:  Men    Women

     NEW ORLEANS — The University of New Orlenas won every match but two in earning dual-match victories against Xavier University of Louisiana at UNO Tennis Center on Friday.
     The Lady Privateers won 6-1 — that snapped the Gold Nuggets' seven-match winning streak — and the Privateers won 7-0.
     The Gold Nuggets, shut out by UNO in 2005 and 2003, earned a point when Anastesia Opata defeated Kir Kemp 6-2, 3-6, 1-0 (10-7) at No. 1 singles. But UNO (5-3) didn't drop a set in the other eight matches and rolled to its fifth consecutive victory.
     The Gold Rush also won a match when Terry Richardson and Mikhail Vaval beat Guilherme Rebolo and Oliver Cuthill 8-5 at No. 2 doubles. But the Privateers (8-5) earned the doubles point by winning the other two matches, then swept the six singles matches.
     Xavier's closest men's singles match was at No. 6, where Mario Myles lost 6-3, 4-6, 1-0 (10-2) to Abdelrahman Zaki. None of Myles' teammates won a singles set.
     It was the first men's tennis dual between Xavier and UNO since 2003.
     Both Xavier teams are 7-3 and will return to UNO for 11 a.m. Sunday home duals against another NCAA Division I opponent, Jackson State.
