ROYALS, ISLANDERS STAY UNBEATEN IN HUGE GAMES

The ND Royals and JFK Islanders remain unbeaten after two big games.

Four undefeated teams. Two huge games.

Saturday night had the top teams in both the Taga and Gadao divisions going at it in the IIAAG Girls Volleyball League.

Down in Talofofo, the greatest girls volleyball rivalry commenced once again with the ND Royals dropping the Academy Cougars 25-22, 25-22 for the top spot in the Gadao Division.

In Upper Tumon, the upstart JFK Islanders shocked the pre-season tournament champion St. John’s Knights 20-25, 25-13, 26-24.

ROYALS OUTLAST COUGARS

Academy jumped out of the first set very quick with a 5-1 lead. Five lead changes later, The Cougars went on a 5-0 lead behind the net play of middle blocker Laressa Halladay to take a 17-14 edge.

But the Royals slowly creeped back. Davie Rae Lefever’s two straight aces put ND in the lead for good at 22-21 before three Academy errors help close the first set.

ND was in control throughout the second set, taking its largest lead at 16-8.

The Cougars didn’t go down without a fight, inching their way to a 22-20 score with a kill from Isabella Bargfrede, but the errors doomed Academy down the stretch again.
