Published 7:33 pm Monday, October 7, 2019

The Goshen Lady Eagles knocked off rival Ariton in three sets on Monday afternoon in Goshen.

After falling to Ariton in five sets over the weekend, the Eagles got their revenge on Monday defeating Ariton 25-17, 25-13, 25-15.

“We are looking a lot better,” Goshen head coach Amy Warrick said. “We played hard in the tournament this weekend and we got better. We played Ariton and they beat us. We made some changes to our rotation and our attitude. We started hustling more and the girls are getting better and better every time they go out.”

Olivia Kyzar finished the match with one ace, five points scored, five kills, 25 assists and 10 digs.

“She really had a great night tonight,” Warrick said. “She was hustling all over the court. We switched to a 5-1 offense and it puts her on the front row. She did a great job on the front row tonight. That was a big difference for us.”

Molly Wares had one ace, five points scored, 12 kills and 10 digs. Julie Johns finished the match with six points scored, 10 kills and five digs. Kaleigh Burden had five kills and eight blocks. Kaci Wilkes had three aces, 13 points scored, three assists and eight digs.

The Eagles will go back to work on Tuesday when they travel to take on Straughn and Geneva in a tri-match. They will pick things up again next week when they play in two more matches against Opp and Kinston.
