Same exact score, different outcome
CRAIG, Colorado – Sometimes things are better the second time around.
This was true for Glenwood Springs on Saturday. Taking on Moffat County for the second time this season, this time in Craig, the Demons defeated the Bulldogs, 3-2.
The final result was a familiar one to both teams, who saw a similar turnout in their Sept. 25 match in Glenwood, the difference being a 3-2 Bulldog victory in that matchup.
Both teams refused to give up in the final moments, resulting in close victories of 27-25 and 26-24 for the Bulldogs in the first and third games and a 25-23 win for the Demons in the fourth.
Moffat County coach Sandy Camilletti said the problem was in the numerous scoring streaks.
“We let them get on too many long runs and drive the score up,” she said.
The fifth game started out strongly for the Bulldogs, but it didn’t take long for the Demons to take the lead and the win, 15-11.
There were glimmers of the Bulldogs’ 3-1 victory against Palisade, with the team digging in for frequent last-minute saves, coupled with powerful kills by Lauren Roberts, junior Annie Sadvar and sophomore Makayla Camilletti.
Defensively, the team had strong blocking by juniors Melissa Camilletti and Adrie Camp, with senior Jess Matthews and junior Morgan Knob also chipping in.
“They were pretty scrappy today,” Coach Camilletti said.
But the Glenwood lineup kept a strong front, particularly at the net, with junior Sarah Davis, sophomore Taylor James and senior Kiley Stevens ready to hand the Bulldogs a loss.
Coach Camilletti added that the presence of Glenwood’s hard-hitting junior Lexie Warkentin’s helped propel the Demons forward because Warkentin didn’t play in the previous meeting between the two teams.
“She definitely made a difference,” Coach Camilletti said.
Glenwood’s record is now 9-8 overall and 4-6 in the 4A Western Slope League. The Demons travel on Thursday to battle 10-7 Palisade.
