The Bulldogs really wanted a win against Litchfield so they came back on the court in the third game and played from their hearts. They played every ball like it was the last point of the game. The Dragons didn't do well. They didn't dig as many of the Bulldog's balls and didn't hit well against the tall blocks of the Paynesville volleyball team. The Bulldogs won the third game 15-10.
