COUNCIL ROCK SOUTH 3, CENTRAL BUCKS SOUTH 1 (25-21, 23-25, 25-10, 25-17)
The Titans and Golden Hawks were deadlocked after two sets, but the Hawks won the next two to earn the win.
“Today was definitely a roller coaster for us,” CB South coach Kurt Godfrey said. “We played really well in the first two sets and ended the day with a lot of errors in the last two sets.
“CR South is a good team, and they definitely make you earn all your points. I don’t think they missed more than two or three serves all day.”
The Golden Hawks were led by outside Celina Varian who had 10 kills, six digs and one ace. Junior outside Ariana Ranieri contributed two aces and four kills. Senior setter Paige O'Connell had five kills, 13 digs, two aces and 25 assists. Sophomore setter Ava Paulson had eight kills, 10 assists and 10 digs. Senior libero Bria DeSaro anchored the defense with 18 digs.
"CB South is a great team," Rock South coach John Wright said. "They swept us earlier this year and made us work hard for this win. I was pleased with the way we responded to losing set two."
Sophomore outside Courtney Pohl had 13 kills and one block to lead the Titans while junior middle Allie Burke added 11 kills and freshman middle Millie Grove had 10 kills. Senior outside Maddy Morrow had eight kills and 16 digs. Junior setter Lizzie Shirley had 44 assists, 11 digs and one kill. Senior defensive specialist Maddie Mauri contributed 15 digs and two aces, junior defensive specialist Ashley Scott had 10 digs, and junior defensive specialist McKenna Clow added eight digs.
“We spread the ball around all over the place today,” Godfrey said. “She’s been great at running our offense this year.
“I guess Courtney, Allie, Millie and Maddy really liked her setting today. Our defense was really scrappy and allowed our offense to be as successful as it was all day. It certainly wasn’t the outcome we wanted today, but we have a lot of the season left, and we plan to get back to the drawing board tomorrow night at practice.”
