Men's Volleyball: Logan loses close matches to Mission San Jose
Submitted By Coach Steve Burmaster
James Logan lost to Mission San Jose (MSJ) in men's volleyball May 3 in three nail-biting games: 23-25, 20-25 and 20-25.
Game one was a very close game with Logan taking a lead mid-way into the game and at one time leading 17-13. However, MSJ continued to play well and the Colts had a few miscues during serve receive and were unable to capitalize on some great digs during a number of long rallies. Game two started off with six straight miscues by Logan, which gave the MSJ Warriors a lot of easy free balls to run their offense and allowed them to take a 0-6 lead. The lead stretched out to seven points before the Colts started pulling things together, but there was not enough time to catch up before the Warriors earned their 25th point of the game.
Again, poor passing put the Colts in a hole to start game two at 0-5, and again the Colts rebounded and played well enough to get within three points at 20-23. However a back-row attack after an amazing dig and save gave the Warriors point number 24 and then they sealed the win with another kill to give them the point, game and match.
MSJ is now 9-1 in the MVAL with 20-6 overall; Logan is just behind them at 8-3 in the MVAL and 21-9 overall.
