Fletcher and Tverijonas continued their dominant play with a triumphs in No. 2 and No. 1 solo slots, respectively, in straight sets to put the Colonials ahead 3-0 in the match.
FGCU stayed alive with a No. 4 win, but junior Chris Reynolds solidified the victory, coming behind from a first-set deficit to take the third-flight match.
FGCU went on to take the No. 5 match in three sets. Freshman Dennis Afanasev closed the night with a three-set win of his own to put the final tally at 5-2 in favor of GW.
