North Woods takes Ely in three

A lack of momentum and misreading lead Ely to defeat

Posted

FIELD TWP - North Woods made quick work of the Timberwolves Thursday evening, defeating Ely in three sets, 25-16, 25-12, 25-22.

“The girls came out strong and didn’t let up,” North Woods Coach Gabby Sundquist said. “I thought they did a great job at passing, communicating and finishing the play with kills. The girls really saw the court and where to place the ball.”

Knowing where to place the ball would be Ely’s undoing as the Timberwolves found themselves dominated by the Grizzlies until the third set.

“We really did not have a lot of momentum until the third game and by that point it was not enough to turn things around,” Ely Coach Andrea Thomas said. “North Woods does a great job reading the floor.”

For North Woods, Regan Ratai led the way with 12 kills on the evening with five digs and one ace. Karlyn Pierce had seven kills and three blocks, while Coley Olson posted seven kills and four digs and Hanna Sandberg added six digs and two aces. Setter Morgan Burnett tallied 27 set assists and two block assists.

For the Timberwolves, Jenna Merhar notched 11 digs and seven kills, Erika Mattson had six kills and three aces. Brielle Kallberg posted 11 digs and six kills.
