Bondurant Farrar At Carroll
Bondurant Farrar 2
17-25, 18-25, 25-21, 25-18, 15-10
It was an incredible comeback for the Carroll Tigers who looked out of sorts for good portions of sets 1 and 2 before coming to life to start the 3rd set. Carroll didn’t have a single lead in the first two sets after falling behind to start both. They pulled within 13-11 in the 1st set and did tie the 2nd set four times with the last tie coming at 6. Carroll battled back in the 2nd set from a 5 point deficit to trail 17-16 but Bondurant Farrar serve gave Carroll troubles and they went on an 8-2 run to end the set and appeared to have all the momentum.
Things switched in set 3 as Carroll came out and went ahead 5-0. Bondurant Farrar slowly worked their way back into the set and tied it at 17 but Hannah Jorgensen went on a service run and the Tigers extended the lead to 24-18. Ella Collison and Josie Ayala got rolling in the 3rd set and the Blue Jays struggled to find an answer for them. Ayala ended the 3rd set with a kill from the outside.
There had not been a lead change through the first 3 sets but Carroll changed that in set 4. After falling behind 4-1 they rallied and grabbed the lead at 6-5 and never trailed again. Laura Sweeney and Ella Collison had nice service runs and Kennedy Lein was able to send the match to a 5th set with a kill on a slide.
The 5th set had three lead changes early with Carroll getting the lead for good at 6-5. Ayala and Collison again came up big and the Tigers received a couple crucial blocks from Gabi Hammer, Kennedy Lein and Laura Sweeney. Carroll extended the lead to 11-7 before the Blue Jays closed within 2 at 11-9. Lein had a crucial block to give momentum back to Carroll up 12-9. Ayala served an ace and Collison followed that up with a block and Carroll had match point at 14-9. Collison then ended the match with a kill.
The win improves Carroll to 14-8 and 4-2. They head to the Nevada Tournament on Saturday.
Collison had a big night with a team high 22 kills as her and Ayala teamed up for 40 kills with Ayala adding 18. Hammer and Lein were both solid in the middle with 9 and 7 kills respectively.
