Stanford men beat Ducks, advance in Pac-12 team tournament


The Stanford men's tennis team took a measure of revenge, beating Oregon, 4-0, in the second round of the Pac-12 team championship Thursday in Ojai, avenging its 2014 tournament loss to the Ducks.

Maciek Romanowicz continued his stellar season, recording his 12th career match-clinching point and fourth of the season.

Tom Fawcett added to the Cardinal's lead, dispatching Daan Maasland for the second time this season 6-3, 6-1 at the No. 1 position.

Nolan Paige jumped on the revenge tour as well, topping Jayson Amos, whom he lost to earlier in the season, with a 6-4, 6-4 win at court four.

Maciek Romanowicz added the clincher shortly after at No. 5 with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Cormac Clissold to push his win streak to four.

Stanford will return to action Friday as it sets to face top-seeded UCLA in semifinals. Match time is set for 10 a.m. in Ojai.
