Grizzly comeback isn’t enough

GARDEN VALLEY — Golden Sierra’s late push in set No. 4 fell short Wednesday as visiting Bradshaw Christian defeated the Grizzlies 25-14, 21-25, 25-20, 25-22.

The early-season Sierra Delta League match was a test between the league’s two top teams. Golden Sierra punted on the opening to fall in an early hole.

“We’ve had slow starts of late where we can’t reach 15 points in the first set … as if we’re not ready to play,” Grizzly coach Justin Cox said.

With Linsey Natrass back in the middle, Paige Murchison, Abby Wever and Tristan Nedeigh hitting away, Jordyn Condit running the show, Becca Brown guarding the net and Elise Wilson, Kensie Clark, Robin Moore and Brittany LaShell making defensive plays, Golden Sierra turned the tables on the Pride to even the match.

“We were pumped in the team huddle and wanted to do this (come back) for each other … the intensity was crazy,” Murchison said.

The third set was key and the one the Griz needed. They battled as action swung back and forth but last game mistakes allowed Bradshaw to close on a 6-3 run.

The fourth set duplicated the first as the Pride pulled away to lead 23-14 as Cox called for time. Golden Sierra responded to reel seven straight and trailed 24-22 after Jazmin Lutey-Willard’s block. A Pride kill and Grizzly dig to the bleachers ended it.
