“We came off a tournament this weekend at Madison-Grant where we played pretty well so it was nice to come out in an MIC match and play well and win a close one,” Eastern coach Nick Sale said, adding that his team has lost several close matches this season. “With the season closing out in the next couple of weeks, it’s nice to be playing our best tennis.”

NW 4, MACONAQUAH 1
Blaine Brutus, Garrett Hite, Parker Fessenden and Robert Olsen scored a goal apiece, helping Northwestern remain unbeaten in Mid-Indiana Conference play. Olsen, Brutus and Jesse Murdock each had an assist and Evan LaDow made two saves.
“We did a really nice job controlling the ball,” NW coach Jim Wagner said. “We had most of the possessions, ended up with 35 shots. I think we limited them to one shot in the second half so it was a pretty dominating performance.
“Parker Fessenden has had several strong games here and played really well for us [Tuesday],” Wagner added.
Northwestern (8-3) improved to 5-0 in league play with one match remaining — Thursday at Hamilton Heights.
