CANFIELD — After suffering a 3-0 loss at Howland earlier in the season, the Canfield Cardinals came into Thursday night’s match against the Tigers seeking redemption.
As it turned out, Canfield flipped the script on Howland and swept the Tigers 3-0 in front of a packed house at Canfield High School on Thursday night.
For Canfield (14-4) coach Maria Householder, preparation was key when it came time to face Howland a second time.
“We watch film, we watch hitting tendencies, we watch what we did and the mistakes that we made,” she said. “I don’t think the first time that we played them, I don’t think that we did our job very well, and the girls don’t think that either.
“So, we focused on our job, and if we did our job, we would take them out of system, and they wouldn’t be able to do their job. They executed what they needed to do tonight.”
