Way to go Lady Stangs!!

September 24th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

The Lady Stangs got a big win on the road and it was a sweeper! The Lady Stangs made it close; 25-23, 25-21 & 25-13; OK it wasn’t close in the final and deciding set but winning on the road is tough in the RMAC and this sets a great tone for the road trip. There are moments in a set, match or any game that can make the difference and this time it was the ladies from WNMU that seized control at the decisive points of the match. In the first set it was tied at 21 when Angelina Pulu stepped up and smashed home 4 kills in a row off assists by Alyssa Melhack to win the set.

After starting off the second set tied at three WNMU stepped up again running off nine unanswered points; Jordan Johnston and Pulu recorded kills during this stretch and Jordan and Ziona Verhulsdonk got key blocks to force WSC errors. But WSC came back and got within three at 21-18 before Johnston and Heather Rux delivered decisive shots to reopen the lead and gain the win.

Rux, Pulu and team continued to dominate in the 3rd and decisive set as they built a 7 point lead early and cruised to the win. The Lady Stangs are now 3-1 in RMAC play and head to Pueblo for a 2 o’clock match today. Pueblo is also at 3-1 and tied with Western New Mexico atop the West Division after they lassoed the Cowgirls of NMHU last night.
