(COLIN HAFFNER/Chewelah Independent)
Colville goes the distance for win…
Colville got a tough test in their road matchup with Medical Lake Tuesday, getting pushed to five games by the plucky Cardinals before shutting the door on any dreams of an upset, winning the match 19-25, 21-25, 25-20, 25-20, 16-14.
The Cardinals came into the game with just two wins on the season, but started the night off looking more like a team with just two losses, taking the first two sets. Colville had other ideas though, and reminded Medical Lake (2-12, 1-9) just who the better team was.
After spotting the Cardinals the two-set lead, Colville (9-4, 7-3) regrouped and took back control of the match, winning the final three sets to get the road win.
Kiley Power had 28 assists on the night for the Indians, who had a different team leader in each of the statistical categories. AshNe’a Anderson hammered down 12 kills, while Katelynn Lewis got 23 digs for Colville. Brooke Stutzer and Jade Braun also got in on the action with four blocks and six aces, respectively.
Colville now looks to a home match with Freeman Oct. 24 for a matchup of the second and third place teams in the league and to avenge an earlier season loss to the Scotties. The match begins at 5 p.m.
Kettle Falls slays the Dragons…
Kettle Falls got a nice win Tuesday when they rolled on down for a match with St. George’s and came home with a good looking three set sweep of the Dragons.
It was a closely contested match through the first two games before the Bulldogs (4-8, 3-6) kicked things up a notch to run away from St. George’s (3-10, 1-8) with an overpowering third set win to secure the sweep, 25-22, 27-25, 25-11.
Jocelyn Glover had seven assists and an ace to go along with the six kills and one block put up by teammate Kathryn Lawrence to help lead the Bulldogs win.
Kettle Falls will now take on Chewelah in an Oct. 24 match beginning at 6:20 p.m.
Mustangs run all over visitors…
Northport served up a special plate of home cooking against the visiting Republic Tigers in a Tuesday night straight set win, 25-9, 25-18, 25-13.
The Mustangs (8-5, 6-4) used strong team play to overmatch the Tigers on the night, getting 21 assists from Brianna Young to with 11 kills and seven digs from Eliza Stark leading to the win over Republic (4-4, 3-4).
Northport travels to Wellpinit for an Oct. 26 matchup starting at 12 p.m.
Springdale dominant in win…
Springdale hosted a match with Tekoa-Rosalia Monday evening, putting the clamp down on the visiting Timberwolves in a straight set win, 25-18, 25-19, 25-10.
The Chargers (6-3, 3-1) set the tone early and upped the pressure throughout, taking the first two sets comfortable to set up a dominant third set to close out the win.
Andrea Wellhausen had 12 kills and a block to go along with Mattea Gines’ 12 digs and five aces as the top performers in the win over the Timberwolves (4-9, 4-8). Macey Gines and Makala Norris provided support for the Springdale squad with 14 assists apiece.
