Bulldog coach Ann Dornack said it was a rough night for her team after one of the starters, Amber Loucks, was injured with a ball to her face, and though the girls had to work hard together to get a win, they just couldn't get it done.
Shaina Thevenin and Audrey Winterhof led the Bulldog attack with five kills apiece, and Alyssa Phipps added two more. Regan Henkel and Gracie Winterhof each hadsix set assists to pace the team in that category.
Digs were led by Stephanie Stange with seven, with Lexy Tuttle having six, and sisters Audrey Winterhof and Gracie Winterhof five apiece.
Gracie Winterhof had three ace serves and Shaina Thevenin and Audrey Winterhof each had two.
The Bulldogs travel to Storm Lake St. Mary's Tuesday for a Northwest Conference match with the Panthers.
