Lady Knights Give #3 A Scare

The Southwood volleyball team gave #3 Wapahani a scare Saturday, defeating the Raiders in game one before falling 25-22, 24-26, 23-25, 18-25.

The two top 15 teams would start the night trading points with neither being able to mount a run. Game one was tied 8 times before the Knights would be the first to make a move. With Bailey Hobbs serving, Southwood would score 4 straight off an ace and a kill from Bailey Lundmark to lead 19-15. Lundmark would trade kills with Wapahani while Emilie Harnish got in on the action as the Knights led 22-19 when the Raiders scored 3 straight to knot the score. Tied at 22 Hobbs would get a block, followed by 2 Wapahani errors to give the Knights a 25-22 game one win.

Game two would start the same as game one and with Wapahani leading 10-8 the Knights caught fire. Bailey Lundmark would record a kill that started a 4-0 run as the Knights scored 8 of the next 9 points to grab a 16-11 lead. Southwood continued to feed Harnish and led 20-16 when the over rated chant from the cheer block seemed to fuel the Raiders. Wapahani would score 5 straight to grab a 21-20 lead before three straight by the Knights made it 23-21. The Raiders would come back with 3 straight to lead 24-23 when an out of bounds serve tied the score at 24 before 2 Raider points gave them the game 26-24 and tied the match 1-1.

Wapahani led game three 11-9 when they made a run. The Raiders would score 8 of the next 10 points to lead 19-11 when the character of the Knights came out. Makayla Proffitt would get three kills while Kelsey Niccum served an ace and Southwood scored 5 straight to cut the lead to 19-16. Down 23-18 Ashley Parson would get a kill that started a 4 points run. Bailey Lundmark had three straight kills as the Knights trailed 22-23. Wapahani would score 2 of the last 3 points for a 25-23 win and a 2-1 lead.

Game four kept the theme of the early punch and counter punch. Wapahani opened a 13-8 lead when the Knights made a comeback. On the back of Emilie Harnish Southwood would score 5 of the next 7 points to tie the score at 13. The Raiders would gain the lead back and at 20-17 put it away when they scored 3 straight for a 23-17 lead and went on to win 25-18.
