Lions in three sets; Cardinals in four
A match-up of two Tri Rivers East Conference teams, the rated Lisbon Lions won in three sets. It wasn’t easy for the home team as the scores relate, they went 25-10, 25-22 and 27-25 Lions.
A very good team, the Lions came out fast but as the sets moved forward the Mohawks began to find momentum and rhythm fighting right to the last point in the final two sets as the scores indicate. Marquette is now 12-11 for the season.

Panthers, Knights too tall a challenge
The Comets record dropped to 10-10 with a five-set match loss to the Panthers. Bellevue played well in the first and fourth sets they won 25-20, 25-18.
In the middle two sets unforced errors hurt but they could have won either or both of them despite the errors. They had leads but need to learn to finish when in the lead. The same was true in the fifth set 15-13 loss.

North Cedar 3
At Bellevue: Bellevue ended their home volleyball schedule with a tough 4-set loss to the North Cedar Knights.
The scores went 13-25, 25-17, 16-25, and 25-12.
The rated Knights used size, great passing, and kill power to get by the relentless Comets.
After the first set, the scrappy Comets rebounded with a scrappy 25-17 win in set #2.
Early in set #3 they lost a key player to an ankle injury. Senior Giana Michels rolled up an ankle on a teammate’s foot, that slowed the Comets until they adjusted to her loss.
The Comets put forth a solid effort but without one of their leaders, they fell 25-16, 25-12. Their record moves to 12-12 for the season.
