Wildcats top Bison, fall to Patriots
Published: Thursday, October 24th, 2013
In a couple close matches, the Douglas Patriots edged out the Custer Wildcats in Thursday’s home game.
The Patriots bested the Wildcats in three sets: 25-18, 25-22 and 25-22.
“We had some moments where I thought we played really well,” said coach Renae Schneider. “We are so predictable with our offense. We have been working on using different attacks and calling different sets to catch people off guard.”
Josey Johnson was 11 of 11 serving, five of seven hitting with one kill and 24 of 25 receiving. Catlyn Cordell was 10 of 11 serving with one ace, 11 of 14 hitting with three kills, six of eight receiving and had three block assists. Sierra Davies was nine of 11 serving, 13 of 15 hitting with five kills, three of three setting, nine of 10 receiving and had two solo blocks and five block assists.
Nykyla Malinosky was six of seven serving with two aces, six of 12 hitting with two kills and had three solo blocks and two block assists. Jade Spring was five of eight serving, eight of 10 hitting with two kills, 21 of 25 receiving and had two block assists while Sidney Snyder was 35 of 38 receiving.
Jalee Johnson was 56 of 60 setting, three of five receiving, six of six serving with one ace and had two block assists. Olivia Dahlstrom was 24 of 24 receiving and one of two hitting.
It was a back and forth game last Tuesday when Custer took on the Hot Springs Bison. The Wildcats pushed past the Bison in the first two matches, defeating Hot Springs 25-18 and 25-23. But after a strong start, Custer shut down and let Hot Springs get the best of them.
