The Montana women's tennis team continued its winning streak Saturday at home against Portland State, blanking the Vikings 7-0 to pick up its third straight dual victory.

Portland State (0-4, 0-1 Big Sky Conference) came to the Peak Racquet Club shorthanded due to injury and illness, with only four athletes able to compete. Montana (3-3, 1-0) earned the doubles point with the help of a forfeit at No. 3, then picked up forfeit wins at No. 5 and No. 6 in singles.

The Griz took their confidence with them into the contested singles matches. Quick and dominant performances resulted in wins from Bianca Bostrom at No. 3, 6-0, 6-1, and senior Catherine Orfanos at No. 4, 6-0, 6-1.

At No. 2, Nathalie Joanlanne made quick work of PSU's Eszter Zador, winning the first set 6-1 and pushing through a competitive second set to win 6-3.

Montana No. 1 Cam Kincaid made sure Portland State went away empty-handed. She bounced back from a 2-6 loss in the first set to force a tiebreaker in the second with a 6-3 win over PSU's Alli Valk, a transfer from San Diego State. In the tiebreaker, Kincaid pulled out a 10-6 win.

"We did really well last weekend," Kincaid said of victories against Montana State and Seattle in Bozeman. "So we were all very confident in each other that we were going to play really well and get the win."
