QA’s puts away rivals in four exciting sets
STEVENSVILLE — The Lions were not about to let another opportunity to seal a win slip away.
Up 2-0 after two sets during Wednesday’s rivalry match with Kent Island, the Queen Anne’s County High volleyball team flushed a four-point lead — and eventually the third game — squandering the chance for a resounding sweep on the road.
The Lions rebounded nicely in the fourth set, blitzing the Buccaneers with an 8-1 flurry behind a stellar service run by senior libero Sydney Parsons en route to a 3-1 victor y.
Queen Anne’s (4-0 overall, 3-0 North Bayside) won by set scores of 25-20, 25-17, 21-25 before sealing it with a 25-19 clincher. The Bucs’ lone tally on the scoreboard was the first this season against the Lions, who dispatched Wicomico, Kent County and Colonel Richardson via sweeps to begin the campaign.
The Lions kept pace with North Caroline in the division standings; the Bulldogs (5-0, 3-0) swept Colonel last night.
“I’m really proud of the girls, and the energy they brought to the court tonight,” Queen Anne’s head coach Kim Rementer-Betts said. “Our block was really impressive, I was really proud of how we spread out our attack and kept them off balance, and our libero was phenomenal in the back row, and she was phenomenal in the serving row.
“We had dead legs there for a little while, had some miscommunication — it happens,” RementerBetts added. “Number four, we came back, put the pressure on them and finished strong. I told them we should have finished in three, and we didn’t, and we were not going to go five games.”
There were plenty of spectacular
