Fillmore County Sports - Trojans Out-Jockey Lion


Fri, Oct 21st, 2011
Posted in Sports

Post-season seeding was on the line as the R-P Trojans hosted Spring Grove in a non-conference VB affair of quality sectional adversaries. The Lions entered sitting tied for 2nd in the SEC (15-7 overall). R-P sat in 6th place in the Three Rivers (18-12 overall). Both teams entered on streaks, SG taking 8 of 9, R-P seven in a row. Set one was crisply played and laden with kills. The Trojans' simply were more powerful and proficient (at a 15 to 7 clip). They also took the final five points enroot to a 25-17 victory. Game two saw R-P notch another points-streak, eight straight, turning a 10-9 deficit into a 17-10 lead. SG responded though late, turning a 24-20 R-P-lead into a 24-all tie. But an SG serving error and a Sierra McNamer block led to R-P celebration (26-24, 2-0). The Lions could've packed it in at that point, but they battled. The 3rd installment saw 12 ties. The Lions wound up with a 25-22 victory. Game four saw R-P start quickly (4-1). SG countered with a 7-0 spurt, jumping ahead 9-6. R-P then went 9-3 to take a 15-12 lead. From there they held, led in attacking (oddly) by Cody Manfull and Mariah Muller (rather than Kenzie Lind or Amy Todd). They took game four 25-18 and the match 3-1. Lind and Todd were big on offense (22 and 20 kills respectively) and defense (22 and 14 digs respectively). Kendra Crawford led R-P with 24 down-and-got-it's. Emily Culhane had 43 here-you-go's. SG's Richell Mehus had 15 kills and 29 digs in defeat. R-P previously held a 1-1 (tournament) victory over the Lions. The Trojans (4-5, 19-12) are in 6th place in Three Rivers.

Revenge

Fillmore Central and Chatfield competed in an epic 5-set volleyball affair on September 20, one that ended with a Gopher victory. The (non-conference) re-match in Chatfield, though 66.6% hotly competed, and featuring teams tied for 4th in the Three Rivers, wasn't so long. One squad appeared primed for the post-season, the other in limbo. Set one saw FC hold three 6-point leads before Chatfield engineered a 7-0 run to go ahead 18-17. The Goph's were one point away from a win at 24-23, but Taylor Case (kill) denied them. The Gophers were nearly one point away again. Kenna Moechnig seemingly slammed down a point (to give Chat a 25-24 lead), but she was called for a net violation giving the Falcons a 25-24 lead. FC then got set point from Alex Peterson (26-24). Game two wasn't so close. FC led wire-to-wire, prevailing easily 25-15. Chatfield led the 3rd set early 6-2, but the lat .....

It wasn't necessarily an extremely important playin the football game. Given the end score, it wasn't necessarily of consequence period. It was the most memorable. It was perfectly executed. It definitely helped put one nail in Rushford-Peterson's c .....
