CRAIG – After falling to Steamboat in a five-game nail-bitter on Thursday, Glenwood wasn’t able to get back on the winning track on Saturday as Moffat County blew past Glenwood Springs 3-0 (25-14, 25-22, 25-19).The Bulldogs have now won three straight matches and nine consecutive games.”We are on a roll,” coach Brianna Montgomery said, “and it feels really good. We are playing awesome right now.”Senior Amy Dilldine was also excited about the Bulldog team chemistry.”We are totally hitting our rhythm,” she said. “We are connecting well and passing well. We have a great upbeat attitude.”I wouldn’t want to play us right now.”The Bulldogs (6-3 overall, 4-3 Western Slope League) dominated at the net against the Demons (6-3, 3-2 WSL).”This was by far our worst match of the year,” Glenwood Springs coach Scott Nykerk said. “There is no excuse. We just didn’t play well at all.”The Bulldogs trailed only once the entire match, at 12-14 in the second game. The deficit grew to three points at 13-16, but Moffat County fought back behind the stellar play of the Bulldog front line – Markie Workman, Amy Dilldine and Kari Griffin. The trio combined for 16 blocks and 16 kills.”When my girls blocked them so much, it makes them timid,” Montgomery said. “They abandoned the spike and started to try and dump volley the ball past our defensive wall. That’s where Angie lives.”Angie Charchalis answered, blocking six balls and digging out another 10.Senior Meghan Innes pitched in with 15 assists before leaving the match with an injury when she and Ariel Sanchez collided – head first.Griffin rolled her ankle and Sharina Simpson did the same, leaving the match as well. Simpson returned shortly after to finish the contest.”We’ll be fine,” Montgomery said. “I don’t think Meghan has a concussion or anything. She’s a tough girl.”Glenwood is off until Thursday, when the Demons will host Battle Mountain.
