The Eagles volleyball team had Eldon nearly beat, needing only two points for the win last Thurday.

They never got them.

The Mustangs rallied late in the second game for a heart-stopping 25-23 win and then held off a furious Eagles rally in the third game to win 26-24 and win the match.

“It was an example of having a young team and not being able to put away a win,” said Eagles coach Jaime Nelson.

The Eagles then went to the Eldon Tournament on Saturday and dropped three matches and tied Owensville.

The Eagles lost to Blair Oaks, Boonville and Eldon before winning a game and losing a game to the Dutchmen.
