The Charleston Southern Lady Buccaneers claimed the all important doubles point and then split the six singles matches to squeeze past the Liberty Lady Flames, 4-3, Monday.

The Lady Buccaneers took the doubles point by winning two of the three doubles matches contested. Jonita Randolph (Jr., Townville, S.C.) and Martyna Hanusz (So., Stola Wala, Poland) claimed the Lady Flames only doubles victory at #2 doubles.
Down 1-0, Liberty came up a point short for team victory, splitting the six contested singles matches. The Lady Flames rallied for three single victories by Dina Senkina at #2, Martyna Hanusz at #4 and Erica Fredstrom at #5 to make the match close.

Liberty falls to 3-4 overall and 0-2 in the Big South play, while Charleston Southern wins its first match of the season to move to 1-7 overall and 1-1 in conference.

The Lady Flames continue their road trip with a visit to UNC Wilmington on Thursday. The non-conference contest is set for Noon.
