OFA Girls Climb To 3-0 Defeating Gouverneur
GOUVERNEUR - On Friday night OFA downed Massena in an emotional five-set NAC Girls Volleyball series where both teams were extended to the limit.
Just a matter of hours later the Blue Devils were on the road to Gouverneur on Saturday morning with one goal in mind...avoiding any semblance of a letdown and gain a 3-0 start in a matter four days.
They did just that gaining a 25-14, 25-10, 25-14 victory and their second win of the season over the Wildcats (1-3). The teams will square off again on Monday at OFA in the Blue Devils' Senior Night where a 5 p.m. ceremony will preceed 5:15 p.m. start.
"The girls had a goal in mind and they were a business. We really served well with only five errors in 70 serves for a percentage of 93. Gouverneur has some good players but we just took control at the start and never let up," said OFA Coach Sue McLean.
"Emma LeBeau had a tremendous match today, serving and defensively. We want to thank Gouverneur for scheduling a third match with us."
LeBeau served for 14 points with five aces, three kills and four digs combining with three other players who served for 10 points or more.
Emily Farrand led the way with team highs of 20 points and eight kills, four aces and two digs. Abby Raven served for 13 points with five aces, two kills and one dig and Gabrielle Morley netted 12 points with six kills, four aces, two assists and three digs. Jordyn Tupper continued her prolific playmaking with 13 assists.
Rounding out the effort were: Jenna Mitchell with two points, one assist, one kill and one dig; Mallory Morley with three points and four assists, Aubrey Love with two kills and one point and Taryn Sholette with six points.
Maya Bartleson led the Wildcats with 11 points, three kills and one dig. Karissa Stowell scored eight points with five digs and Lexi Devlin was very active with six points, one kill, one block and two digs.
"We had a better team effort today than last night which I was happy with," said Gouverneur Coach Nick Costa.
