ORLANDO, Fla. ( - The UCF men's tennis team eased past Army Monday, posting a 6-1 victory at the UCF Tennis Complex. The Knights claimed the doubles point to open the contest and then won five of six singles matches.

The match was originally scheduled for Sunday, but was postponed due to rain. In doubles play, Erik Brunskog joined Mitch Thams for an 8-6 win at No. 2 over Alex Van Velzer and Peter Sienko. At No. 3, Matthew Gladstone and Mario Samson rolled past Alex Holland and Rommel Verano, 8-3.

In singles competition, Brunskog, Thams, Samson and Joe Delinks all swept their opponents. Gladstone also recorded a singles win.
