"After two days of cancelled matches, we were eager to play North Penn-Liberty," said head coach Margery Hoffman. "We expected their first two players to be tough, but the rest of their team was better than we expected. They have a lot of depth, and fortunately, we do too. We enjoyed playing them, as several games went to deuce and were won by one point. The play was closer than the final score sindicate."

The win improves the Hornets to 6-0 (3-0 NTL). The team is back in action this afternoon at Packer Park for a doubleheader against Towanda starting at 2:00 p.m.
