Adena Delays Westfall SVC Outright VB Title While Staying in Title Chase

.

The Adena Warriors stayed alive in the SVC title hunt with a (25-22, 25-14, 25-23) win over Westfall, Tuesday at Adena High School. The Mustangs have already clinched a share of the championship, and now need a win at home vs Zane Trace this Thursday or an Adena loss at Huntington, to get the outright crown.

.

Adena served 10 aces on the night and kept Westfall on their heels defensively with a wide variety of attacks on the front row.

.

In Set #1, the Mustangs led by as much as 7-3 and as late as 15-13, before the Warriors went on a 3-0 run for a 16-15 advantage. Both teams traded two point runs for an 18-18 tie. Adena then went on another 3-0 run for a 21-18 lead, then later 22-19 and 23-20. Westfall cut the deficit to 23-22, before the Warriors closed for a 25-22 win.

.

Set #2 saw Adena break away from a 4-4 tie on a 5-0 run for a 9-4 lead. That lead stretched to as much as 19-7, before Westfall went on a 5-0 run to cut it to 19-12. Adena finished on a 6-2 finish for the 25-14 win and a (2-0) match advantage.

.

The Warriors came out strong in Set #3 with leads of 4-1, 6-2 and 11-5. Westfall cut it to 11-9, before Adena ran it up to 13-9. The Mustangs cut it 13-12. The score was tied 14-14 and 15-15, before Adena took the lead back and never trailed, despite Westfall cutting the lead to 22-21. Adena's match-point at 24-21, was answered by two straight Westfall points at 24-23, before the Warriors finished the match at 25-23 with a Jenna Martin kill.

.

Stats showed Adena being led by Makenna Lovely's 13 kills and 19 digs. Jenna Martin added 12 kills, 4 blocks and 3 serving aces, Ellie Harper added 7 kills, 11 digs and 2 aces. Hannah Burns had 5 kills. Sydney Fogelsong added 3 kills. Camryn Carroll had 22 digs. Olivia Riley had 10 digs and 2 aces.

.

Westfall got 16 kills and 3 blocks. Josie Williams had 8 kills and 15 digs, Marissa Mullins added 8 kills, Claire Latham 4 kills and 16 digs, Lauren Daniels 3 kills and 11 digs.

.

Westfall drops to (11-2/17-3) and still has at least a share of the SVC title. The Mustangs host Zane Trace on Thursday, where they need a win and or an Adena loss at Huntington to win the undisputed championship. The (10-3/14-7) Warriors would need a win and a Westfall loss to share the title.

.
