On Monday Oct. 1, the Boyne City Ramblers Varsity Volleyball team snapped a four-game win streak against the visiting Blue Devils from Sault Ste. Marie.
The Soo jumped out to an early lead in set one but the Ramblers were able to fight back within 2 points, eventually dropping the set 20-25.
Set two was all Sault Ste Marie whoes high powered offense was just too much for the Ramblers as they dropped that set 16-25.
With the never give up attitude the Ramblers were able to survive set three with some great defense and help from Gabby Musser and Jillian Cain behind the service line and took that set 25-23.
In set four the Blue Devils were just too much for the Ramblers to hold off after a tough back and forth battle the Soo took that set 19-25.
“We had some positive things happen for us tonight but definitely was not our best performance,” said Boyne City Varsity Volleyball Coach Mallory Slate. “Unfortunately, due to some unfortunate circumstances, the Soo had to cancel our originally schedule game. This was our make-up date but we have not played a match since Thursday Sept. 20. That’s almost two weeks of non-stop practice with no competition, which is hard for any team to recover from.”
She added, “We have a huge game tomorrow against TCSF which I think have the girls a bit nervous and it showed tonight. It was great to be able to play the Soo being that’s our first district game. We now know what we need to do to adjust and hopefully come out on top next time.”
