ST. PETER, Minn. (4/27/07)-- In the first round of the MIAC Tournament held at Gustavus on Friday, fifth-seed Concordia overcame a 4-2 deficit midway through singles play to post a 5-4 come-from-behind win over fourth-seed Saint John's.
Down 2-1 following doubles, Concordia's Jordy Kamerling knotted the dual at 2-2 with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Trevor Beach at No. 1 singles. The Johnnies responded with wins at No. 5 and No. 6 to lead 4-2, but the Cobbers answered right back with victories at No. 2 and No. 4 to tie the match at 4-4 and put all eyes on the match at No. 3 singles between Saint John's sophomore Mark Steelman and Concordia senior Paul Tuchscherer.
After dropping the first set in a tie-breaker, Tuchscherer battled back to take the second set 6-3 and then prevailed 10-4 in the super-breaker to give the Cobbers a 5-4 victory and a date with top-seed Gustavus Adolphus in Saturday morning's other semifinal. Concordia was also able to avenge a 7-2 defeat at the hands of the Johnnies in Moorhead less than two weeks ago.
