No. 5 (2A) EBF tops Davis County in volleyball action at top of SCC

(Continued)

“I think the perfect set gets me started sometimes,” said Alexander. “When I get one big hit, I just rely on my experience in other big situations to keep on a roll.”

The Mustangs didn’t have as many kills as the Rockets in game one, but a couple of big ones late in the game by Megan Joos and Eakins helped close it out.

Games two and three were dominated by EBF. Eakins started game two with a down-the-line kill, but after that it was all Rockets. Karlie Taylor’s second kill of the game gave EBF a 3-1 lead.

During the middle of game two, Haegen Boyer gave the Rockets a big boost with a six-point service run that put EBF up 14-5. Bang, bang, bang and game two was over. Taylor, Alexander, and Sadie Baugher had three consecutive kills to end it.

Five early service points by Boyer got EBF off to a quick 6-0 lead in game three. Baugher’s five-point service run finished off the Mustangs.

“We served a lot better in games two and three,” said Genskow.

Eakins led the Mustang hitting in the third with two kills but the three-headed attack of Alexander, Taylor, and Taylor Leffler was too much for the Mustang defense.

“They just have a bunch of girls with good size and they do a good job of placing the ball and seeing the holes in the block,” said Barnett.

Alexander had the big hitting start for EBF. After her big winner off a double block, the visitors led 5-0.

Taylor picked it up mid-game and registered five kills and a block to put EBF up 22-10.

The intensity really picked up in game four, with EBF trying to close out the match and Davis County clawing back from an early deficit to take the lead late. If not earlier, it became evident that it took real courage to dig or block.
