Spartans Tame the Bulldogs

In what proved to be exciting high school volleyball action Tuesday night showed the Francis Howell Spartans beating the Ft. Zumwalt South Bulldogs in the freshmen and the Varsity sets.

The freshmen level was the most exciting of the three levels as the Bulldogs came out fast and strong jumping to an 11-3 lead in the first game. After a brief timeout by the Spartans they worked their way back into the game limiting the Bulldogs to 4 points on their way to victory of 25-15.

The second game was just as exciting as the first as both teams wouldn’t say die just yet. Needing to win by two points they were tied at 25 a piece but still nobody would give an inch.  One would go up one and the other would tie it back up.  Finally the Spartans got two in a row to win the set at 30-28.

One level up the JV Bulldogs was able to stay out front of the Spartans in the first game 25-17. However the JV Spartans didn’t quit as they kept throwing some good spikes at the Bulldogs but when the buzzer sounded the Bulldogs took this set two games straight with the second game 25-19.

The Varsity Bulldogs came out strong and won the first one. However the Spartans realizing the errors of their ways came back and won the second game.  In the deciding game the Spartans set the tone early and walked away with a solid victory 25-19.

Head coach for the Spartans was quoted after the game” We came into this one knowing that the Bulldogs had played a set before and this was our first and we made some mistakes in the first game. We adjusted our strategy and managed to pull off two wins.  Don’t get me wrong the Bulldogs have a great team”.
