MONTGOMERY, Ala. - The No. 22 University of Notre Dame men's tennis team dropped a tight 4-3 match to Boise State Saturday afternoon at Lagoon Park in the semifinals of the 2013 Blue Gray National Tennis Classic.

After losing the doubles point to fall into a 1-0 hole, the Broncos made a comeback in singles as they picked up early wins at five and six. Garrett Patton took down Ryan Bandy, 6-4, 6-2, at six and Thomas Tenreiro dropped Michael Moore, 6-4, 6-4, at five.

Boise State took at 3-1 lead after Nathan Sereke defeated Quentin Monaghan at two, 6-3, 6-3.

Notre Dame wouldn't go away though as it trimmed the lead to 3-2 with a 6-4, 6-3 win at three as senior Blas Moros topped Scott Sears in straight sets.

With the match sitting at 3-2 in favor of the Broncos, all eyes turned to action at courts one and four. For a brief moment Notre Dame tied the match at three as junior Billy Pecor won in three sets at four, 5-7, 6-4, 6-4, over Filipp Pogostkin.

However, Andrew Bettles finished off junior Greg Andrews (No. 96) in a tight three-set contest (4-6, 7-5, 6-4) at one to give Boise State the 4-3 win. The Broncos advance to the finals of the Blue Gray National Tennis Classic against No. 47 Texas Tech.   

The Irish (9-6) meet No. 29 Cornell in a consolation match Sunday at a time to be determined. Fans can follow the contest against the Big Red by following the live stats link on UND.com.
