Sylvan Lake senior girls Lakers wash over Falcons

The H.J. Cody senior girls Lakers won the recent volleyball game against St. Joe’s 3 sets to zero

It was a relatively quick game Tuesday night for the H.J. Cody senior girls volleyball team when they met the visiting St. Joe’s Falcons.

The game lasted just over an hour with three sets for the senior Lakers.

The first set was a bit of a slow burn for the Lakers, who appeared to be evenly matched with the visiting Falcons.

The first set of the Oct. 16 game was the only set that went beyond 25 points. The Falcons kept pace with the Lakers throughout the first set, though the home team pulled ahead in the end and won the first set 27-25.

After a minute or so of downtime to catch their breath in between sets, the Lakers swept over the Falcons in the second.

With a few good rallies throughout the Lakers maintain a lead the Falcons could not make up. The Lakers utilized the power of Kate Berg during the second set, who helped the Lakers smash their way to a 25-12 victory.

The final set of the game started a bit slower for the Lakers who missed a few serves and responses early in the set.

However, that didn’t stall the team, as they quickly made a come back and out scored and out paced the Falcons.

After winning 25-16, both teams agreed to play a friendly set to 15 to round out the game.

The senior girls will next play at home during the home tournament Oct. 26-27. The next home game of the regular season is on Nov. 6 at 8 p.m.
