During the third and final match of the night Muskingum looked to lose a little bit of hope towards the end. Coach Hallie Donathan called a timeout to try to help the girls regain composure. That seemed to help, as they battled back to get 23 of the 25 points needed to take the match. Muskingum however just couldn’t put the nail in the coffin tonight, and Mount Union took all 3 matches. Muskingum takes on OAC opponents at Ohio Northern on Saturday the 21st at 4 p.m.
