No. 7 EBF goes 3-0 at Fairfield volleyball quad

(Continued)

The second rotation of matches saw a much improved Albia team fall again in three games to IMS. They dropped the first game, 18-21, won game two 22-20, but fell 15-11 in the decisive game.

“We have some high expectations for this group,” said Albia coach Tessa Simpson.

Round two also saw the 15th-ranked (4A) Trojans fall 2-0 to No. 7 (2A) E-B-F by the scores of 21-15, 21-15. This match was all about the hitting. In game one E-B-F registered eight kills to only one for Fairfield. Tasha Alexander gave the Rockets a 1-0 lead with a deep kill. E-B-F led throughout the game as Alexander, Karlie Taylor, and Taylor Leffler combined for seven kills. Leffler also added two blocks.

“We got a little intimidated while they (E-B-F) were flying around and really pounding it,” said Diers.

Fairfield took an early lead of 5-1 with Payne serving. They would increase the lead to 8-2 before the Rockets, behind the serving of Abby Boyer and the hitting of Taylor, would rally. A Taylor kill found the floor in the middle of the Trojan defense to tie it at 10. Two Alexander kills kept the score knotted at 12. Sadie Baugher gave the Rockets control of the match with six service points for a 19-13 lead. Taylor ended the game with a big hit off a double block and a kill.

The rotation that closed out the night saw the Trojans down IMS 2-0. The scores were 21-16 and 21-9.

“I thought that our serve receive was pretty good and our blocking wasn’t so good,” said Diers. “IMS is really a scrappy team, so to finish our night by that win was nice to see.”

Two South Central Conference rivals that will definitely meet again, Albia and E-B-F, played a three-game match that was won by the Rockets. E-B-F won game one easily 21-9, but the Lady Dees won game two 21-19. The Rockets took the match with a 15-9 win in game three.
