"We gave Williamsport tough competition in singles, but we only managed to pull out one win," coach Margery Hoffman said. "This is the first time since our first match with Towanda that the team was pressed. Williamsport was a better team than we've played this season. The ball came back over the net more times than we were expecting. We did not use the wind to our advantage, which was difficult under the gusty conditions. Some long points were played, where we were able to set up a winner to end the point. Unfortunately, many of those setups ended in errors."

The loss drops the Hornets to 9-1 (5-0 NTL). The team is back in action later this afternoon against Addison, NY for Senior Night.
