Ranked teams battle at Uniontown

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

UNIONTOWN -- A pair of teams ranked by the Kansas Volleyball Association faced off Tuesday night here in the final match of a Three Rivers League triangular.

Uniontown is ranked No. 1 in Class 2A while new league member Northeast (Arma) came in with the No. 5 ranking in Class 3A.

When they faced each other in the featured match, the visiting Vikings prevailed 21-25, 28-26, 25-21, avenging a sweep suffered at the hands of the Eagles at the season-opening Three Rivers League Tournament at Pleasanton.

"Northeast executed their game plan very well," Uniontown head coach Jackie Hall said. "There were lots of great rallies throughout the match and it took close to an hour to complete.

"We didn't play up to our potential at our one home match and on Senior Parent Night. We struggled with our passing and just couldn't seem to hold serve in our strong rotations to score points."

Jacy Ermel had 23 kills in the match as she was successful on 39 of 44 chances to attack. Tayler Shook handed out 30 assists and Tiffany Poyner received credit for 49 digs.

The evening opened with Uniontown sweeping St. Paul, 25-19, 25-16. Ermel had 10 kills for the Eagles. Poyner was credited with 20 digs and Shook handed out 13 assists.

In the middle match, Northeast sent St. Paul home with a 27-25, 25-13 loss.

In JV play, Uniontown beat St. Paul, 25-19, 25-16 and Northeast, 25-17, 25-15.

The Eagles will go to Cherryvale for their annual appearance in the Chargers' home tournament Saturday. Play begins at 8:30 a.m.
