NORCO: On the road, against Norco, Coach Lough knew her team was up against an imposing challenge. “Its tough winning on the road sometimes” she said, “but especially in Norco’s environment.”
The Wolves would drop an important match in 4 sets, 20-25, 25-19, 17-25 and 19-25.
Austin Kent played well with 23 digs on defense, while Cole Vigo and Mason Mapes led the offense with 9 kills a piece.
But it wasn’t enough to overcome the Cougar attack.
“This was an important match for us” Lough said. “But our team never could get in a rhythm of play.”
The team made too many serving errors that caused that disruption in the flow of the game Lough knew her team needed to overcome both the road game and the quality opponent.
“I’m not sure it was anything Norco did to beat us other than ourselves” she said. “We complete the first round (of league) on Friday and have some work to do in the second round.”
The team stands at 4-7 overall and 2-4 in league. Friday’s match will once again be on the road, this time at Roosevelt.
