DUDLEY -- Southern Wayne's Beth Brown played well at No. 1 singles and Christie Westbrook fought hard at No. 6 singles, but Washington was too much overall in a 9-0 loss Thursday afternoon.

Brown lost 8-4 against Emily Cochran, while Westbrook stumbled 8-3 against Mary Paige Peacock.

"I think Beth had a good match today and hit the ball well for us," Saints coach Brad Matthews said.

The teams played eight-game pro sets due to the weather. The match was moved to Southern Wayne because of wet courts at the John Neal Walker Tennis Complex at Mount Olive College.

The Saints (0-5, 0-4 ECC) travel to archrival Eastern Wayne next Tuesday afternoon.
