OXFORD, Ohio -- Miami rallied from big deficits in two doubles matches to steal the point, then rode the momentum into singles play for a 6-1 victory over Toledo Saturday afternoon at the Hepburn Courts. Combined with Akron's win over Western Michigan, the RedHawks (8-12, 4-1) move in a tie with the Broncos for first place in the MAC standings.

Toledo (7-11, 1-4) seemed destined to take the doubles point after earning an 8-3 victory at No. 2 and taking early leads in both of the other matches. The RedHawk duo of Christiana Raymond and Ramona Costea fell behind 3-1 and 5-4 at No. 3, while Alix Thurman and Nimisha Mohan trailed 5-1 and 6-2 in the top flight.

But the RedHawks were not to be denied. Raymond and Costea won the final four games of their match, squaring things with an 8-5 decision. Meanwhile, Thurman and Mohan used a service break to string together five straight games for a 7-6 lead. After the Rockets pulled even at 7, Miami broke again and Mohan held serve for the 9-7 triumph.

Raymond and Mohan both rolled to 6-1, 6-0 victories at Nos. 3 and 1, respectively, before Christine Guerrazzi clinched the match with a 6-1, 6-1 blitz at No. 4. Costea pulled away from her opponent at No. 6, 7-5, 6-1, while Ana Rajkovic won 6-2, 6-3 at No. 5.

Toledo gained its only point in the final match to be completed. No. 2 Chrissy Coffman rallied from a first-set loss to defeat Thurman in a super-tiebreaker, 3-6, 6-4, 1-0 (10-7).

Miami faces its biggest challenge of the season next weekend, when it travels to Western Michigan on Friday and Bowling Green on Saturday. If the RedHawks could earn their third straight weekend sweep, they would secure the No. 1 seed at the upcoming Mid-American Conference Championship for the fifth year in a row.
