BULLDOGS WIN WILD AFFAIR

[sixcol_five_last]

The Notre Dame Royals took the long trek to Okkodo High School to face the Bulldogs Friday night in their first meeting of the 2012 Girls Volleyball League season. The Bulldogs, coming off a Tuesday victory against the GW Geckos, settled for another win on their home court by way of a 25-14, 25-22 two-set victory.

This was after shocking the previously unbeaten GW Geckos 25-17, 25-12 on Tuesday.

After the game, Okkodo coach Dohn So said, “our passing was on which let us run our offense, but we need to work on communication.” So added, “Tonight was sloppy.”

In fact, of the 86 points played, there were 54 unforced errors as neither team could really find a rhythm.

Starting the first set, the Bulldogs capitalized on several errors by the Royals to get the score to 12-3 in their favor. Okkodo never looked back as the Royals could not find their groove. The Bulldogs never let the Royals get anything going and eventually closed out the set 25-14.

In the second, both teams seemed energized and awake as the action finally picked up. It was the Royals who capitalized on Okkodo errors going up 6-2 early in the set. But the Bulldogs buckled down and eventually tied the score at eight-all behind ND errors and a Keana Mayo ace. Two plays later, Mayo’s teammate Ashley Arrelano smashed a strong kill for the Bull-Dogs which again tied the game at 10. Not wanting to give up too much, Royal Annanea Pitter served an ace off the net which, accompanied by an Okkodu error put the score at 12-10 in the Royals favor.

The teams traded errors and points again until the scoreline read 18-18. ND’s Sheri Stanley recorded an ace and Paris Blas swatted a kill from the back row to make the score 18-20 in the Royals’ favor. But the Bulldogs turned up the tenacity and fought hard to tie the game at 22-all. After an ND error, back to back kills from Refalopei Novy and Lori Okada sealed the deal for the Bulldogs as they closed the set and the game.

For the Bulldogs, Okada finished with four kills, a tip and an ace, and Setter Anisha Ledlie had two aces and 10 assists.

In the losing effort for the Royals, Blas had two digs and two kills.
