LOWELLVILLE OH-

Coming off a heartbreaking defeat in “The Battle of Blue Devils” Western Reserve looked to bounce back on Thursday night with another Mahoning Valley Athletic Conference (MVAC) opponent in The Lowellville Rockets. Faring well on the road, The Blue Devils looked to keep their undefeated record in road games this season alive. 

For Lowellville, they are looking to build up younger stars this season, after graduating four seniors that were also starters a year ago. A team looking for experience and their first conference win of the season, had to face a Blue Devils team that had some pent up frustration. 

From start to finish, Western Reserve left little doubt! Grabbing a straight set victory over The Rockets, thus also getting The Blue Devils their first conference victory of the season. 

The Rockets (1-5) will now hit the road on their way to ram country to take on Mineral Ridge (5-0) on Tuesday, September 6th. It will also be a rivalry renewed next Tuesday, as Western Reserve (5-2) welcomes in The Jackson Milton Blue Jays (3-2) as The MVAC conference is sure to shake up!
