Tonight Henry traveled down to Rochester and came away with a pair of losses. In the first segment Winona Cotter swept the Patriots with a margin of 25 points. The first set was a disaster for Henry with four straight missed serves which sabotaged any efforts at points. Cotter closed with a 10-1 run for the win. In the second set Henry closed to 19-16, but the Ramblers again finished strong with 6-1 run. The Patriots again missed five serves.

In the second match of the night Montgomery-Lonsdale swept the Patriots with a margin of 26 points. In the first set ML had a 9 point run. Once again missed serves plagued the Patriots. You might have guessed five missed serves and you would be right on the money. The second set again belonged to ML with a 14-2 run early the difference maker. ML led 15-5 at that point. The Patriots only missed three serves in this set. In the end both sets were 25-12.
