Trojans Stopped by Spartans










After getting off to a rocky start where they allowed the Spartans to go on a 11-1 run, the Trojans requited themselves and went on a run of themselves to win the first set 25-23. After that neither team went on such a big run, but it was a grind it out kind of match. In the last 3 games Waynesville seemed to do a better job of getting a 'set, set, spike'. Arcanum seemed to be playing on their heels a lot of the time and generally played catch up to Waynesville lead for the most part. The last 3 sets were all Waynesville 25-18, 25-20, 25-23.

The Bee's came into the game with a first round win over Brookville – so they had some momentum walking onto the court. The Tigers were clearly the better team in the first set, but it took that first set to get the opening round of tournament jitters out of the way and get into a strong tournament groove. The Tigers got that first set out of the way 25-16, and went on to dominate the second set with strong front line play – 25-9. And even with liberal substitutions in the last set, the Tigers dispatched the Bee's 25-12.
