“We hadn’t seen Davis this year,” co-head coach Christy Bergin said, “We struggled to get in rhythm at times but when the girls found it you could really notice the difference.”
After splitting the first two sets, the third set was a coin toss with both squads trading three and four-point runs until the set was even at 23-all. Oak Ridge’s Hayley Corell broke the stalemate with a powerful kill, and Erin Krigger’s final service point pushed Oak Ridge to the win.
“You have to give Davis credit,” co-head coach Bre Horton said. “They are a great team, they’re tough and work really well together.”
The Lady Trojans (18-14) jumped out to a commanding 9-2 lead in the fourth set, countered by a big Blue Devil service run before strong defense up front by Quilici and Elizabeth Cameron stifled a number of Davis kill attempts. The hosts build momentum from the ground up, clinching the night with the fourth set win.
Marissa Quilici tallied a dozen kills in the win,while Cameron and Erin Krigger each had a pair of aces. Kelly Krigger and senior Moira McVicar were tough as nails defensively, tallying 22 digs and 13 digs, respectively.
Oak Ridge played at No. 4 Pitman last night.
