Playing their fourth match in as many days, the Tigers jumped out and played consistent volleyball to take the first set 25-19 against the Mustangs of Marygrove. “We know they are well coached and have good talent in all areas, we just wanted to start off with energy and play within ourselves.” Coach Spooner said.
In the second set Marygrove jumped out to a 8 point lead but the Tigers clawed back down 18-22 and tied it at 24-24. Then each point became a match with both teams not backing down from each other. Finally Marygrove drove home a solid attack winning 30-28. Then in the third and fourth set’s the Tigers fell behind early valiantly trying to come back but lost 18-25 and 16-25.
“We have found our way to being a very good volleyball at times, but now we need to learn how to sustain it. We gave them to many unforced errors leading to points.” Coach Spooner said after the match. “Our attack % was very good again but Marygrove served well and created a lot of out of system passes.”
The Tigers had a good balanced attack led by Joee Spooner’s 10 kills. Nichole Galbiescek and Leslie Pumford each with 8 kills. Shelby Jamieson had 23 assists and four aces. Jessica Ryan had 16 digs.
The Tigers host cross town rival Kuyper College Tuesday night.
