"We started the game off fired up and played well," Blaine coach Bryan Clausen said in a phone interview. "Anacortes was just more experienced and it showed as the match wore on. Small errors started adding up and (the Borderites) just let it get to them. We've improved vastly each match this year."

Blaine's next match is 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, at home when the Borderites host Bellingham.
