CHICAGO -- Visiting Marquette took 4-of-6 singles contests to steal a 4-3 match from DePaul on Saturday afternoon in Chicago.

For the Blue Demons (8-13, 2-2), who honored senior Filip Dzanko on the day of his final match in Chicago, the contest was the second-to-last of the regular season.

They will travel to Carthage (Wis.) on April 18 for the regular season finale.

DePaul started the day off strong, winning 2-of-3 doubles matches to grab a 1-0 advantage. Dzanko and David Vieyra beat Dan Mamalat and Vukasin Teofanovic, 8-6, in No. 1 doubles and Sten Leusink and Kyle Johnson topped Logon Collins and Gleb Sklyr in the No. 2 match by the same score.

But the Golden Eagles (13-8, 2-0) rallied back in singles play, grabbing victories in the No. 3, 4, 5 and 6 matches. Only Dzanko and Leusink won their singles matches; Dzanko (No. 1) beat Mamalat, 7-6 (13) 7-6 (3) and Leusink (No. 2) took down Teofanovic, 6-4, 6-2.

For Dzanko, the victory in singles play was his 23rd of the season. He is 23-10 in 2014 and 84-40 overall as a Blue Demon.
