RAMS RUNDOWN
Suffolk has yet to win one point on through two matches on the young season as the 0-2 Rams were blanked in both outings.

Delaney Dunlap has played exclusively as the blue-and-gold's ace with the junior teaming up with senior co-captain Isabel Rathlev as Suffolk's top tandem.

BEARS BREAKDOWN
Bridgewater State sandwiched its lone win of the season, a 5-4 victory over UMass Boston, around two setbacks, a 9-0 season-opening loss at Endicott, and an 8-1 defeat by Suffolk's GNAC counterpart Johnson & Wales, to sit at 1-2 on the year. 

Alisha Silva is the Bears go-to ace. The senior has yet to record a win, however, owning a 0-3 record. Olivia Sweeney holds the most successful singles racquet. The rookie boasts a 2-1 ledger all in the sixth spot. 

In doubles, Silva has teamed up with Amanda Strickland for BSU's top tandem. Similar to singles action, Silva and her teammate have yet to find the win column (0-3). The partnerships of Bojana Roman and Alison Scagnelli and Angelique Gray and Rachel Taratino, who play on the second and third courts, respectively, are each 1-2 on the season.

INSIDE THE SERIES
Since 2009, Suffolk trails the all-time series with Bridgewater State, 1-7. The Rams lone win over the Bears came in a 5-4 thriller in 2015.

WHAT'S NEXT?
After a weekend away from competition, Suffolk returns to action Sept. 21 in a Thursday tilt against Wentworth. First serve at North Reading High School is set for 6 p.m.
