After CDM came out with five of the first six points, the Wildcats have scored eight of the last nine to take a 9-6 lead. Just like in game one, Brianna Potter provided a spark, with two kills and a block.
REV was never really in game 3, as Corona del Mar cruised to the 25-15 victory. REV also lost game 4 in their semifinal victory over Bishop Montgomery after taking a 2-0 lead, so it’ll be interesting to see how this next one plays out.
Corona del Mar stunted REV’s attack, as the Wildcats were held to 7 kills in the third game after being brutally efficient in the prior two.
Game 4 about to start.
The Sea Queens won seven points in a row after REV clawed back to tie it at 11, taking an 18-11 lead and making it look as if we are going to be here a little while longer.
The Sea Queens are playing for their CIF-SS lives and its evident in game 3, as they are up 11-7 on a REV team that’s, quite frankly, used to losing game threes. REV has fallen in the third game after building a 2-0 lead in its last two matches. We’ll see if the trend continues.
as REV closed out game two with a 25-17 victory. Krista Vansant ended it with a finesse bloop kill, even though she was tattooing CDM with most of her eight kills in the game. Besides that, the old cliche’ “It’s a team effort” is holding true for the Wildcats.
Let’s see if REV can make it a short afternoon.
The Wildcats are rolling, up 17-8 on Corona del Mar in game two. It should be 18-7, but a serving error by CDM was inexplicably ruled a Sea Queen point despite everyone on press row (OK, EPJ and I) and the REV faithful having the 18-7 score. Doesn’t look like it will matter.
REV is continuing the momentum it grabbed at the end of the first game, starting off game two with an 8-2 lead. Johnna Fouch is doing a great job mixing up her sets, getting Krista Vansant, Alyssa Mason and Danielle Newcombe involved on the attack.
After a slow start, the Wildcats got rolling, winning the first game over Corona del Mar 25-21. Krista Vansant had seven kills, including four in a game-ending 11-3 run. Alyssa Mason notched the last two points for REV on a block kill and a kill from an assist by Johnna Fouch, who had 11 assists in the game.
Game two about to start.
Corona del Mar is still up 17-14, but REV seems to have gotten into a bit of a groove. Brianna Potter has just delivered two consecutive kills, which might be the spark the Wildcats need.
The Sea Queens have it going on so far, taking an 11-6 lead thanks to three kills by Morgan Boukather. REV is having problems getting a set off of Corona del Mar’s serves.
