ROCKFORD, Ill. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - Despite dropping the doubles point to start, the Green Bay men's tennis team rallied for a 4-1 road victory over Northern Illinois (7-3) Saturday afternoon at Boylan Tennis Center to improve to 7-1 on the year.

After the Huskies took the No. 2 and No. 3 doubles contests to secure the match's opening point, the Phoenix stormed back to get wins at the No. 2 through No. 5 singles contests. Senior Craig Cox (Surrey, England) came from behind to defeat NIU's Frederic Cadieux 2-6, 6-4, 6-4 at No. 3, while freshmen Leopold Gomez Islinger (Weiden, Germany) and Joey Leto (Downers Grove, Ill.) grabbed straight-set victories at No. 4 and No. 5, respectively.

It was senior Erik Finkenbrink (Duelmen, Germany) who earned the match-clinching point at No. 2 singles, winning a hard-fought 6-3, 1-6, 6-4 battle with NIU's Axel Lagerlof.

The Phoenix is back in action tomorrow in Milwaukee, facing Toledo at noon CT.
