New Rockford-Sheyenne played the Bearcats tough through the first set of action on Tuesday evening. However, Danielle Hagler being Danielle Hagler, coupled with a hint of porous coverage, did the Rockets in. “One thing about tonight, from what I noticed, was our blocking,” New Rockford-Sheyenne head coach Sara Myhre said after the match. “We need to have better blocking in coverage up front there. We did not have a whole lot of errors. Coverage and blocking are some of the biggest things when we go up against these big hitters.”

Final score: 3-0 Langdon/Edmore/Munich 

A tournament win over the weekend for the Cardinals was enhanced with yet another sweep Tuesday evening.

Final score: 3-0 Benson County 

With the win, Benson County has now swept three of their past four opponents. Benson County will next host Dunseith on Oct. 14.
