Game Recap

In a must-win situation, the Crusaders utilized an entire team effort to earn the win against the visiting Lakeview Honkers. The Crusaders struggled in set one and two to find rhythm and consistency in a new rotation after losing junior outside hitter, Hallie Shean, during Tuesdays match against Cascade Christian to a knee injury. In set three, the Crusaders came out strong behind the serving of Ashley Gurr whose three aces gave the team a small lead, 11-7. The team maintained the lead behind key serving from Susanna Schatz and Jane Cleary. In set four, the Crusaders battled back and forth for control of the momentum. Lakeview had the lead, 17-16, when Cleary served points 17 and 18 with an ace to give the Crusaders the lead, which they never lost. In match five, the Crusaders won the first serve, but served it out of bounds. Lakeview’s setter served the next three points, before missing the next serve. The Crusaders were behind 7-11, when they earned a side out and Schatz served points 9, 10, and 11 with 3 aces before missing her serve. Under Lakeview’s setter and middle hitter, the Honkers earned points 12, 13, and 14. The Crusaders earned another side out and Grace Johnson came through with clutch serves to finish the game while Lakeview folded under the pressure.
