The story of the night came in match set number two for the varsity. With the Eagles already up 1-0, Carmen Kelly stepped to the serving line and rattled off 25 straight points for the Eagles giving them a true shutout.

All though every serve wasn’t an ace, the Eagles dominated the second set.

“Carmen has that floater serve and eventually I thought they were going to return one and they did, but we set up pretty good tonight,” Warrick said. “After it got up to about 18 I just wanted to see if she could do it.”

Coming into the night’s match the one problem for the now the 11-5 Eagles was inconsistency from the serving line. All that changed in the dominating performance.

“Sometimes we are not real consistent with our server, but tonight I think we were really locked in because of the rafters and we had to make sure we got our serves in,” Warrick said “Our server was pretty good she worked her serve really well.”

After a tough 18th point the Eagles were determined to see the streak continue through the 25th point of the set.

The main obstacle for Kelly was fatigue as she battled her way through against the Tigers.

Kelly and the Eagles didn’t just stop at 25 straight points, Kelly was the first serve again for the Eagles in the third set and once again she started a streak. It wasn’t until it was 12-0 that Tigers finally broke serve.

The Eagles will hit the floor this afternoon when they travel to take on Highland Home.
