The fellas fought hard against an experienced Eaglebrook team, but came up just short in a 4-3 decision. If not for Tai’s broken arm, we might have had enough firepower to get over the hump, but you have to play with the cards you’re dealt.
Carl was first off with a solid but close win at #2, while Eaglebrook’s depth overwhelmed Nathan and Avery at the bottom of the lineup. Justin ran out of gas in his third game, putting us down a quick 3-1, but Gideon, in his first match at #1, caught fire in the fourth game to take down Proof. With Eaglebrook still only needing one match to clinch, Christian found himself on the wrong end of a seesaw battle, losing the fourth game in overtime. Taylor made sure we finished strong, closing out an injured Edwards to finish the score.
The exhibition crew had a tough time of it, but everyone did better than the previous match. They played a lot of good defense, but struggled to take the offensive for extended periods. Nevertheless, everyone gained good experience; our record stands at 2-2, with Choate and Taft looming.
