Sam Matlick '17, who played at the fifth position, was the other three-match winner for the Continentals. Against Hobart on Saturday night, Matlick rallied from a two games-to-one deficit. He won a dramatic fourth game 17-15, overcame a bloody nose and posted an 11-9 triumph in the fifth game.
Seven Hamilton players won two matches each. Josh Wolpert '16 (fourth position) increased his career victories total to 25 and Colin O'Dowd '19 (second) and Mark Sperry '17 (seventh) recorded the first two varsity wins of their collegiate careers.
