Terriers top Lady Rams

MT. VERNON — Carbondale rallied past the Lady Rams volleyball team to win in three games Tuesday night.

Mt. Vernon claimed the opening game before the Lady Terriers erased the deficit with two straight win. Carbondale won the match 23-25, 25-19, 25-18.

I thought we played a decent match,” Mt. Vernon coach Angie Higgins said. “The first game was amazing for us. That's probably the best single game we've had all season.”

The deciding game was delayed twice to check the accuracy of the score.

I've never seen such a controversy over score,” Higgins said.

Hannah Owens led Mt. Vernon with five kills. Makiah Rush added four, and Kirsten McGowen finished with three.

Alexis Stewart led Mt. Vernon with 25 digs, and Hannah Carbonaro added 17 assists.

The two teams struggled for control of the opening game and traded points throughout. The Lady Rams led the whole way until Carbondale grabbed the advantage late at 19-18 after a carry from Whitney Jones.

Mt. Vernon evened the score at 19 and pushed in front when Owens knocked down a kill.

Carbondale never recovered and Mt. Vernon's Rachel Kirsch closed out the game with a kill.

The Lady Terriers appeared on their way to a rout in the second game. Carbondale jumped out to a 19-5 edge before Mt. Vernon ripped into the deficit. Behind four aces from Owens, the Lady Rams sliced the deficit to 19-12. The Lady Rams continue to creep closer and cut the Carbondale lead to five at 22-17.

I think we had the momentum at the end of the second game, even though we lost the second game, we had scored the most points in a row,” Higgins said. “I'm just proud of them. They got down twice in separate games and they did not give up.”

The Lady Terriers kept Mt. Vernon from getting any closer and finished the game with a tip.

Carbondale led throughout the final game. At one point, the Lady Terriers built a 15-5 edge. Mt. Vernon made a run again, but the Lady Terriers again closer the game with a solid finish.

Mt. Vernon is 9-8 this season and travels to Centralia on Thursday.
