Following two tough matchups with both The Mineral Ridge Rams and The Austintown Fitch Falcons, The Western Reserve Blue Devils went into Tuesday night with hope of ending their six set losing streak. Their opponent? The Waterloo Vikings made the trip from Atwater to Berlin Center in an Mahoning Valley Athletic Conference battle on The Scarlet Tier. 

Needless to say, The Blue Devils showed their frustrations, taking their anger from the last week out on The Vikings. Wasting little time, Western Reserve claimed the straight set victory over Waterloo, sweeping the season series 6-0 in sets against The Vikings. 

The win set up Western Reserve (9-4) for a rematch in The Battle of Blue Devils, as they will travel to McDonald (11-3) on Thursday, September 22nd. Coming off the loss, Waterloo (3-8) will look to turn things around against the conference leading Mineral Ridge Rams (12-1), also on Thursday.
