West Long Branch, N.J. - After posting back-to-back victories in its last two matches, the Villanova men's tennis team (2-13) traveled to West Long Branch, N.J. where Monmouth (7-6) defeated the Wildcats 7-0 Wednesday afternoon at the Outdoor Tennis Complex in West Long Branch, N.J.

Kelly Donaldson (Broomfield, Colo.) and Thomas O'Brien (Branford, Conn.) tied the doubles series at 1-1 when they knocked off Victor Pugliese and Christian Vieira, 8-4, at the No. 1 slot. However, Monmouth claimed a one point lead shortly after as Michael Rosengren (Sharon, Mass.) and Matt Colonnese (Marietta, Ga.) fell 8-4 to Przemyslaw Filipek and Bee Kumthonkittikul at the No. 3 flight.
