The singles competition was tight throughout with Cerretani capturing a 6-3, 6-7 (5), 1-0 (10-7) decision at number two and Shamasdin winning 6-2, 6-1 at number three. Senior Ben Brier came through with a 6-1, 6-2 victory at fifth singles, but the Bears couldn't hold onto matches at one, four and six.
