According to MDI Coach Corey

It was a back and forth battle for most of the night, the way it usually is between these two teams.  No matter how the season is going, good or bad, whenever we face off against Ellsworth we know it will be a battle.  That's what makes a rivalry, right?

I think we played streaky last night, really good at times and really off.  In the third set we jumped out to a huge lead but you have to hand it to Ellsworth and how they battled back in the end.  Hopefully, we can use this to work on mental refocusing over the next few weeks until we face off again for our final match, and Senior Night, on October 18th.
