BDS Knocks Off L/N, Palmer At Home Tri.

Bruning-Davenport/Shickley ended regular-season play with a pair of victories in a home triangular on Tuesday, October 28, in Shickley.
BDS defeated state-rated Lawrence/Nelson in three sets last week and took out Palmer in three sets, too.  The 15-11 Eagles defeated Palmer 25-17, 23-25, 25-9 on October 28.
Catherine Mick crunched 17 kills against the Tigers and Jaycie Hoins added 10 terminations.  McKenna Schardt smacked nine kills.  Madison Yantzie tallied 33 ace sets.
Hoins cracked three ace serves and Mick and Schardt both nailed one.  Megan Grote paced the BDS defense with nine digs, while Hoins added eight.  Carly Elznic added seven digs.  Kristin Troyer and Mick both posted three ace blocks.  Hoins and Elznic were both tabbed for one.
"Our aggressive serving allowed us to take the Tigers out of their offense in games one and three," Eagle coach Dan Sorge said.  "Catherine, Jaycie and McKenna kept the pressure on their defense with some aggressive attacks off the setting on Madison Yantzie.  We played a solid all-around match defensively.  We limited any big runs by the Tigers."
Next, BDS defeated 18-7 L/N 25-22, 19-25, 25-23.
Hoins pounded a dozen kills against the Raiders.  Mick added 11 terminations and Schardt added seven kills.  Yantzie posted 30 assists.
Schardt slapped down three ace serves.  Hoins came up with 15 digs in the big win and Schardt added 10 digs.  Hoins and Mick both came up with three ace blocks.
"We played our most complete game of the season to defeat the 10th-rated Raiders," Sorge said.  "Even though we didn't have a lot of ace serves, our aggressive serving limited the Raider attack.  We stepped up defensively to keep any long rallies going.  This was a solid win heading into sub-district play."
BDS tangles with Heartland (14-14) in opening-round play in the D1-2 Sub-district at Fillmore Central on Monday.  With a win on November 3, the Eagles will, more than likely, play top-seeded 21-8 Friend on Tuesday, November 4, in the sub-district final in Geneva.
