EDINBURG—The Edinburg volleyball team played host to the Okaw Valley Timberwolves Monday night. The Wildcats did not have enough to defeat the visiting team and they fell in two games, 25-13, 25-20.
With warmups finished the Timberwolves set to serve the ball to the Edinburg side. Starting off with a slow game pace the Wildcats struggle to get in the playing groove and they went down quickly 1-0. Once they got going, they had a few fantastic defensive stands and digs. The slow team play and lack of commu- nication still hung around play after play. With the minor mis- takes adding up, the home team finds themselves down 20-10 late in the first game. Not being able to get a rally going late Edinburg looses the first one, 25-13.
With the loss behind them Wildcat’s senior Jordyn Alcala is set to open the second game up. Just in the first few plays the Wildcats showed more enthusiasim and energy. The players communicated better which in turn made for organ- ized play. Execution is what matters though and they could not do it efficiently enough. In no time the visiting team took a commanding lead again, going up 8-0. Edinburg could not regroup and reset as the
Timberwolves kept adding to their lead. Trying their best to come back late on a kill by senior Julie Orr, it made the score 22-15. The attempt was not enough and the Wildcats lose game two by a score of 25-20.
“The team played their hearts out on Saturday and came out here just expecting to win,” Head Coach Brooke Brandis said.
The Edinburg Wildcats’ next match will be in Raymond tonight to take on Lincolnwood.
