The Middlesex varsity volleyball team won a five-game match at Lancaster on September 17 but lost to visiting Mathews on September 18 in three games. The Lady Chargers are now 7-2.

At Lancaster on Monday, Middlesex won the first game 25-17, lost the second game 25-15, won the third game 25-16, lost game four 25-12, and took the fifth game 15-11 to win the match.

On Tuesday night, Mathews invaded the John S. Clements Memorial Gymnasium.

Middlesex stayed with the Lady Blue Devils for half of game one, once tying the score at 15 apiece before Mathews moved on for a 25-18 win.

With their backs to the wall, Middlesex hung with Mathews in game three. However, Middlesex, which had trailed 20-16, rallied to cut the lead to 24-23 and made Mathews work for the win.

The win makes Mathews 5-0. “It was one of our tougher matches,” said Lady Blue Devils coach Pat Moughon. “There were a lot of long volleys. It was a fun match for the girls to play because of the long volleys.”
