GARDEN VALLEY — They’re on the schedule and they have to be played. Still, there’s not a lot to be gained when an undefeated Sierra Delta League team goes against one that’s winless.

Monday at Golden Sierra, the host Grizzlies (5-0) had it easy with Bradshaw Christian, defeating the Pride 25-11, 25-12, 25-14.

Bradshaw Christian (0-4) is known for some of its sports programs but boys volleyball isn’t one of them. The undermanned Pride squad were over-matched by the more skilled and athletic Golden Sierra team.

The Griz ran out Brian Cann, Brandon Susic, Skyler Watson, Alex Murray, Jon Oules, Anthony Roses with libero Eric Yamzon for the first set. From the start, Golden Sierra’s intensity sank several levels and the Grizzlies over-hit on numerous scoring opportunities. When the pace quickened, so did Golden Sierra’s ability to perform.

After allowing Bradshaw to hang around early, the Grizzlies pulled away with Cann on serve, Susic hitting and Watson’s savvy play at the net. Yamzon’s ace put the set at game-point where Cann’s tip won it.

Golden Sierra injected Brendon Nutt and Joe Webb for the second set and built a quick lead with Jeff Gale on serve. Yamzon served up a string of points with several from Will Cann as the Griz separated. Golden Sierra led 18-9 on Webb’s kill and Watson’s link with Brian Cann sent the match to the third set.

Ashton Anderson, Rosas, Susic, Nutt, Watson and Murray with Yamzon opened the last set. The Pride pushed to grab the game but trailing 15-14, faded under Yamzon’s 10-0 service run to end it.
