SHILOH —The North Dorch­ester High vol­ley­ball team ex­tended its win­ning streak to five with a five-set vic­tor y 25-19, 22-25, 25-13, 22-25, 15-7 over 2A Park­side Wed­nes­day, Oct 11.

The Ea­gles are now 7-3 over­all and 5-3 in the South Bay­side. Leann As­plen led the team with five kills in the match. Ge­orgie Turner and Sa­vanna Nos­sick each added four kills apiece. Kar­lie Allen notched a team-high seven aces, and Brooke Harding recorded five aces.

“It is huge to get a win against a team like Park­side,” said Ea­gle head coach Carol Hub­bard. “We’ve been on a re­ally good roll here. To con­tinue this mo­men­tum against a 2A school means a lot.

“The at­mos­phere was great tonight,” she added. “Park­side had a great crowd. We had a great crowd. When they got up, they were loud, but our girls kept bat­tling and got the mo­men­tum back on our side. We feed off the at­mos­phere tonight.”

North Dorch­ester jumped out to a 13-3 lead in the first set, then held off a charge by the Rams to take the set. The Rams closed to 21-18, but the Ea­gles recorded three-straight points off Jenna Usil­ton’s serve. As­plen ended the set with a kill.

Usil­ton and Turner help North Dorch­ester take a com­mand­ing 19-9 lead in the third set with a 10-2 run. Usil­ton be­gan the run with a kill to break Park­side’s serve. With Turner serv­ing, the Ea­gles scored six con­sec­u­tive points.

In the fifth set, the Rams nar­rowed the North Dorch­ester lead to 8-7, but a kill by Turner gave the serve to her team­mate Kar­lie Allen.

The Ea­gles then ran off six con­sec­u­tive points, in­clud­ing three aces from Allen, to win the match.

“We didn’t give up on a sin­gle vol­ley tonight,” Hub­bard said. “Ge­orgie had a lot of big points for us tonight. She can do it all. Her, Leann and Sa­vanna played great against a much big­ger Park­side front­line.”
