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

(Continued)

Once again the Rockets went up early on a service run by Haegen Boyer (5-0). Leffler had a kill and two blocks at the outset. EBF extended the lead to 15-8 before the Mustangs started to be more aggressive with the serve. Seven service points by Joos helped the Mustangs grab the lead at 16-15. Eakins had three big winners – her kill at the net gave the Mustangs the lead.

Eakins and Taylor would go back and forth with big hits as the teams traded the lead. Taylor had four big hits and a block winner as the visitors tied it a 22.

“It’s only natural to look across the net and see who you might have to match up with,” said Taylor. “That gets me going but sometimes I just really pick it up to do more when I’m frustrated with how we’re playing.”

Birchmier and Eakins combined to give the Mustangs their last lead at 24-23.

EBF setter, Paige Shafer, had a number of hitters she could go to throughout the match. Four different hitters had between four and 16 kills.

“We’ve played together a lot and every one of our hitters gives us the opportunity to score,” said Shafer. “I trust them all.”

An Alexander kill tied it at 24 and a block winner by Taylor ended the 26-24 game four win.

Fifth-ranked (2A) E-B-F goes to (22-2, 3-0) with the win.

“We got a little too relaxed and over played the ball in game four,” said Genskow. “We are still looking for an entire match in which we are mentally tough.”

Davis County stands at (13-10, 2-1) after the loss.

“I really saw some positive things from the girls tonight,” said Barnett. “There were chances in games two and three where we could have quit. We didn’t and gave a great effort all the way through the match.”
