Romain Brunie and Moritz Gehlhaus defeated the Crusaders 8-1 in the number one singles match. Jose Cobo and Caio Camara won in the third doubles slot wth the same score, before Gustav Anderson and Gabriel Santos won 8-2, the closest Belmont Abbey came in doubles competition.

Six-straight singles wins gave the Jags the 9-0 final.
