VOLLEYBALL/ From 1B
woiftd have to serve tough.”
After a kill by Jackie Baerwald <jlown the left sideline off a block and a hit by Friendswood’s Tracee £uffaloe sailed long, New Braunfels led 9-6. A blistering kill by Amy fichmann and a cross-court kill by Hildebrand that dropped right on the lj>ack corner gave the Unicorns an 11-6 lead.
Friendswood cut the lead to 11-8 before the Mustangs fell apart on defense and on serve receive. The Unicorns took advantage.
“That was definitely a breaking point,” Fowler said. “When their serve receive broke down, they didn’t have an offense.”
! Having gone through three serve Rotations in the first five points of the game, Kate Kennedy, who usually rotates to the bench instead of the back row, was forced to stay in the game to serve and play back row. On her first attempt she was wide, but the second time around she nailed an ace to give her team a 12-8 lead.
“That’s happened in almost every playoff match,” Fowler said. “Kate (Kennedy) was prepared for that. She platys good defense when she has to. Shefwas ready.”
^After an ace by Rodgers to make it 12$, her next attempt went long. With
Hildebrand serving, Eichmann dropped a dump for a point, Friendswood missed a hit and Popp put down a block to capture first game, 15-9.
“We had an unfortunate break when Meghann (Wharton) rolled her ankle,” Friendswood head coach Tom Dumper said. “We ended up making a few adjustments on the fly and had to put a freshman in to fill the slot. It took us a couple of points to get back into sync, but I thought the girls adjusted really well. New Braunfels got a couple of good breaks at that time and jumped out to a lead. Ultimately we just ran out of time.”
New Braunfels scored right off the bat on a tip by Baerwald, but three unforced errors by the Unicorns gave the Mustangs a 3-1 lead.
“We play aggressive. We never hold anything back. We just go out there and give it our best,” Friendswood senior Ami Rodgers said. “We played our best today.”
New Braunfels grabbed the momentum when Kennedy slammed a serve receive pass by Friendswood that got too close to the net to cut Friendswood’s lead to 3-2. A hitting error and hitting violation gave the Unicorns a 4-3 lead. After that, New Braunfels grabbed the momentum
again, behind strong serving, and ran with it.
“Our serving was the biggest difference. We didn’t miss as many in the second game as we did in the first game,” Eichmann said. “We had a lot
Natalie Walther served up an ace, forcing the Mustangs to use a timeout. When the teams returned to the floor. Walther served up another ace. A kill by Eichmann, two Friendswood hitting errors, an ace by Hildebrand, an ace by Eichmann and another ace by Popp extended New Braunfels’ lead to 12-4.
“Serving aces has been a big part of our game through playoffs and in district,” Fowler said. “We had^a really tough district and our serving was a big part of our success.”
After a kill by Baerwald made it 13-4, Friendswood mounted a comeback. The Mustangs go as close as 13-9 and then fought off three match-points for New Braunfels before finally giving in. Appropriately Eichmann finished off the Mustangs with the Unicorns’
10th ace in the match.
“In the second game we looked pretty good for awhile until we got a little tentative,” Dumper said. “Our passing broke down a little bit so our hitters weren’t getting the ball right
where they needed it. We basically fell right into their system and they never broke down. They came up with a lot of key digs.”
Fowler said the key to getting past the final obstacle for a state championship title will be for the Unicorns to play like they are capable of playing and not error themselves out of game.
“We have to make sure our serve receive doesn’t break down,” Fowler said. “We have to at least pass serve inside out. Tonight we did a great job of that. We just have to make sure we don’t error ourselves into a tight match or a hole.”
Longview Pine Tree’s leading hitter is senior outside hitter Tasha Jacobs (5-foot-7). Other players New Braunfels will have to keep an eye on include middle, blocker Amber McCray (6-foot-1), middle blocker Cara Causey (6-foot-2) and left-handed outside hitter Marcia Spyhalski (5-foot-11). The Lady Pirates have not only not lost a match this season, but they haven’t dropped a game.
“We’re going to try and get hands on everything we can get hands on,” Fowler said. “We don’t have the size, we’ve never had the size. We’ve been the smaller team physically in almost every match we’ve gone into this year.”
