    “Positioning killed us tonight,” head coach Lynn Eaglin said. “We had 35 attack errors, which tells me we never got in the right position to hit the ball. The team had more errors than kills on the night.”

    The match was a back and forth affair all night as Henry prevailed in the odd number games (25-21, 24-26, 25-19, 23-25, 15-12).
