Volleyball: Grizzlies bow out to Rio

From page A6 | May 19, 2014 |

GARDEN VALLEY — Golden Sierra fell to visiting Rio Americano in the second round of playoffs Thursday 12-25, 14-25, 15-25.

“The game was as expected … Rio Americano is 20th in the State,” Grizzly coach Glenn Linka said. “I told the boys to do their best and to hold their heads high. This was the first year as league champions for the Grizzlies and our first time hosting two home playoff games. I am very proud.”

The Grizzlies struggled in the first game with passes. Brian Cann eventually scored a nice kill on an assist by Skyler Watson before persistent serves and smart hits over the block to the corners helped bring the Griz back in both the first two sets.

Cann and Brandon Susic’s hitting changed the momentum in the second game. Though miscommunication caused some errors, saves by Susic and Anthony Rosas helped throw the Raiders off.

The Griz put a scare to Rio in the third game in keeping pace on some rallies, Eric Yamzon’s digs and Cann’s finish off one play with a great kill.

For their final game the three Grizzly seniors did a great job. Cann had one ace, 10 kills and one dig. Rosas contributed eight perfect passes, two single blocks, and one dig. Susic helped out with five perfect passes, two kills, one single block, and five digs.

Watson and Jon Oules both had two kills. Alex Murray had two single blocks and two assisted blocks as well. Eric Yamzon carried the team with 51 passes and 12 digs. Brendun Nutt slipped in 15 perfect passes and one dig.
