Dustin pushed Albia to the 25-18 win, closing out the game with big winners at 23 and 25 and a kill at 24.
One of the reasons that Albia took game two was that they were able to limit the Savages to just two kills. Katie Dyson, who isn't in the Albia first rotation, made her presence felt at the net. She would have a kill and two blocks in game two to go along with her kill and block in the opener. Dyson had five blocks in the match.
"Playing at the net is my favorite place to be" said Dyson. "I just try to watch the ball and be quick off the floor."
Sigourney coach Chris Carter talked about her team's play.
"We think that even though we aren't big that we should be more of a power team than we were," Carter said.
Jordan Carter, who had a big third game for the Savages going 15-17 hitting with four kills and three blocks, registered a kill to give Sigourney an early 5-3 lead. Back-to-back ace serves by Cassie Crall put Albia up 6-5.
The score would be tied one more time at seven before Albia raced out to a comfortable lead behind the serving of Marissa Hugen. Seven consecutive service points put Albia up 14-7.
"Our serving was pretty strong all match but it was really good in the third game," said Simpson.
The Albia defensive play helped them stretch the lead to 20-9. Defensive specialist Hutt talked about what her role in the defense is.
"Serve receiving and floor coverage are important, but I really concentrate on getting the ball to our setter in a good position so she can use it to help our hitters," Hutt said.
Dyson and Dustin had big games hitting for Albia, but the player that nearly matched and negated Carter's play was Bettis. Bettis went 17-18 hitting with three kills. Back-to-back kills by Bettis ended game three and ended the match.
