Women's Volleyball: Cougars top Colts in volleyball play
Submitted By Coach Steve Burmaster
Newark Memorial played outstanding volleyball throughout the match using good defense, solid hitter coverage, tough serving, and a well-run offensive attack to keep the "Colts" off balance throughout the match.
The "Colts" traded points back and forth with the Newark Cougars in the first game. After an apparent block (the ball never crossed the net) to tie the game at 22, the visiting team called timeout; the score was changed to 21-23 after the 1st referee indicated a net on a "Colt" player and the momentum shifted; it also changed the score at a very crucial point in the game. Still the "Colts" fought back to tie the game at 23-23 before dropping 23-25.
Following multiple point leads, multiple times throughout the match, Newark fought back to make the game close before finally closing out the game to win 25-21.
It was all Newark Memorial in Game 3 due to tough serving that forced lots of serve receive errors that put the "Colts" on the defensive time and time again.
Despite starting out in a hole in Game 4 due to poor passing the "Colts" fought back to tie the game multiple times, but were unable to take the lead.
Final result: Newark defeats Logan: 23-25, 25-21, 12-25, 21-25
