We knew that it was going to be a battle going into this match," Cloverdale head coach Kathy Moore said. "We lost to them last year and they went on to win the conference while we came in second. We came out like gang busters and played our first two match without many errors at all. That changed in the third match and we ended up losing. It was a tough loss but I think we learned some things about ourselves and we will build from that."
