WILLMAR -- Three-set matches had been trouble for Willmar's Andy Neis and Troy Hafner. But not Tuesday. The 3-doubles duo outlasted Monticello 7-6 (7-2), 3-6, 6-1 to give the Cardinals a 4-3 win in a Central Lakes Conference match. "Monticello is in the section, so it was a good one for us to win," said Willmar head coach Loren Holter. Neis and Hafner had struggled in three-setters this season, losing every one of the five or six they were in, according to Holter. The Cardinals (8-6) took a 3-1 lead at the midway point of the dual, but Monticello tied it by winning the next two. Monticel
