Unioto took advantage of several Westfall mistakes to take complete control
of game one Tuesday night. Westfall, who continues to play without setter
Hannah Gabriel, did hang close; however, with Unioto leading 15-11,
Katelyn Jinks recorded a kill and a block on consecutive plays to push the
lead to 17-11. The Tanks would cruise from there winning the opening set
The visiting Mustangs responded in game two behind the great play of their
emerging star in Suzy Gantz. Gantz recorded 7 kills and three blocks in the
second set, and it was her block and kill that broke a 23-23 tie to give
Westfall a 25-23 win to even the match at 1-1.
The third game was all purple and gold as Unioto never trailed. Westfall was
hanging tough at 10-8, but the Shermans outscored the Mustangs 15-4 to
capture the set 25-12.
Game four looked like a repeat of game three, but Gantz continued to give
her team life. A Gantz kill cut the Unioto lead to 11-10. Unioto scored the
next three points only to see WF follow that run with a four-point spurt of
their own to tie the game at 14-14. The two teams would once again be tied
at 15 and 16, but that is when Unioto took over scoring nine of the match's
last 11 points to take the game and the match.
