LOS ANGELES – Eighteenth-ranked California started strong against No. 3 UCLA, capturing the doubles point to take a 1-0 lead on Friday at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. But the Golden Bears wound up dropping four singles matches and suffering their first Pac-12 loss, 4-1, against UCLA, the 2013 NCAA runner-up.

Cal’s best doubles team – the 14th-ranked pair of juniors Gregory Bayane and Chase Melton – lost, 8-3, to UCLA’s Marcos Giron/Karue Sell on court one, to mark the Bears’ first dual-match loss of the season. Bayane and Melton now have an 11-1 spring record and an overall record of 17-3.

Next the Cal duo of freshman Filip Bergevi and sophomore Mads Engsted evened matters with an 8-6 triumph over Gage Brymer/Mackenzie McDonald on court three. The 67th-ranked tandem of senior Ben McLachlan and freshman Andre Goransson prevailed in a tiebreaker on court two, 8-7(9), against Joseph Di Giulio/Clay Thompson to win and secure the doubles point.

Engsted had a more difficult time in singles, as he fell to Di Giulio, 6-1, 6-0, to tie the overall match at 1-1. The Bruins took their first lead at 2-1 when Cal’s 89th-ranked Campbell Johnson lost to top-ranked Thompson, 6-2, 6-0, on court two.

Bergevi then fell on court three to the 33rd-ranked McDonald, 6-2, 6-2, before Goransson dropped a 6-4, 6-3 result to the 73rd-ranked Brymer on court four to seal the victory for UCLA.

Cal plays another Pac-12 dual match at 1 p.m. on Saturday at No. 2 USC.
