SHILOH — A com­pet­i­tive vol­ley­ball match be­tween North Dorch­ester and Colonel Richard­son went the dis­tance Wed­nes­day, Oct. 4, with the Ea­gles pre­vail­ing 25-23, 2225, 25-20, 25-14, 15-12 in five sets.

“It was tremen­dous game played by both teams tonight,” said Ea­gles head coach Carol Hub­bard. “It is good to have these tight games that can go any­way be­cause it builds con­fi­dence when you get in these sit­u­a­tions.

“I’m proud of the girls for the way they play, fought back and got the win,” she added. “We were down by five point late in the first set, and the girls went on a run to get a big set win. Hav­ing that 1-0 lead was the dif­fer­ence tonight.”

The Colonels took a 20-15 lead in the first set but North Dorch­ester fought back with a 10-3 run. The Ea­gles scored six straight points on Nos­sick’s serve, and her kill gave North Dorch­ester a 21-20 lead. Kathryn Allen’s kill gave the Ea­gles the set win.

The teams were even 1 set to 1 and 1919 in the third set when a pow­er­ful spike by Brooke Hard­ing gave North Dorch­ester the lead. A kill by As­plen and Nos­sick gave the Ea­gles the third set win.

Once again the team’s were tied, this time 9-9 in the fi­nal set. The Ea­gles went on a 6-3 run to win the match.
