Lindsey Wilson's Victor Saez and Marlon Dal Pont made it a clean sweep of the doubles matches with an 8-3 win over Ben Scott and Chris Bartlett to put the Blue Raiders just two points away from the necessary total (5) to advance.
The Blue Raiders needed just two singles matches to close out the team match.
Morales pushed the lead to 4-0 with a 6-0, 6-0 win over Echeverria in the No. 2 singles and Pablo Vilches closed out the match with a 6-4, 6-2 win over Baeza.
The remaining matches were stopped after the Blue Raiders reached five team points.
