Rams volleyball sweeps Bulldogs

For the second straight match, the Roaring Fork Rams quickly dispatched their opponents in straight sets, defeating the Moffat County Bulldogs on the road, 25-18, 25-20 and 25-21, Saturday.

Despite winning in straight sets, the match started off in a strange way as the clock stopped working early in the first set, which forced the teams to keep score on whiteboards the rest of the way.

“There was a long delay,” Roaring Fork head coach Jennifer Dority said. “It was cool though. We just hung out on the sideline as team and had some fun.”

After the long break, the Rams went back on the attack, punishing the Bulldogs by applying pressure every chance they had.

Led by Lyndsay Hansen’s 11 kills and seven blocks, the Rams cruised to the three-set win.

“Lyndsay was a force at the net all day long,” Dority said.

Grace Brown and Madilyn Kuhl added five kills each, while Ashley Hall and Lily Ramos chipped in with six digs each.

“We just put pressure on them [the Bulldogs] today,” Dority said. “Moffat didn’t like it.”

With the win, the Rams will turn their attention to Homecoming Week, which features two games at home against Rifle, Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., and Gunnison, Thursday at 5:30 p.m.
