Eagles strike down Bulldogs

Published 9:23 pm Thursday, September 30, 2010

While the two schools met just a week ago on the gridiron, Goshen and Pike County got together again on Thursday night, this time on a harder surface.

The Eagles and the Bulldogs met for the second time this season on the volleyball court, and unlike the first meeting, the Eagles were the ones that came out on top, winning in three-straight games, 25-17, 25-2 and 25-11.

“I thought we looked really good,” GHS head coach Dee Hughes said.

“We did a good job of mixing it up all over the court.

“I was really impressed with the girls,” the coach added.

The win was the Eagles’ tenth of the season.

Devon Izzio and Ivia Pollard led the way, each finishing with 10 kills.

Niyoka Slater finished with six kills in the victory as well.

On the opposite side of the game, the Bulldogs will look to bounce back a week from Thursday against the Eagles in Goshen.

“I think we just weren’t prepared for the match mentally,” PCHS head coach Lisa Hayes said Thursday evening.

“We had a great week of practice and the girls did everything right and looked good. But (Thursday) we made the errors we weren’t making in practice and it hurt us.”

GHS will play host to Charles Henderson on Monday with the match starting at 4 p.m.
