In a battle for second place in the final NCMC standings, Fulton used the strength at the top of its line-up for a 9-3 road victory over the Owls.
The teams had split in singles the day before, but only senior Anthony Van was able to repeat his victory with a 10-0 shutout at No. 4.
The Hornets got wins they didn't get previously at two other singles spots: junior Trevor Steinbeck over senior Alan Magana at No. 3 (10-6) and senior JoeRyan Anderson against junior Ryan Vereyken at No. 6 (10-7).
The doubles match-ups went roughly the same way, with Fulton getting a victory at No. 4 and the Owls winning behind freshman John Hadley and junior Raven White at No. 5 (10-6) and sophomore Andrew Markes and junior Deeno Aguit at No. 6 (10-7).
The biggest difference in the league tilt was that the Hornets (20-3, 6-1 NCMC) got to double back their top six -- all three pairs winning.
Marshall (11-5, 4-2) will head to Hannibal on Saturday for the NCMC Tournament, then return home Monday to host the first round of the Class 1, District 8 Team Tournament versus Father Tolton Catholic of Columbia.
