“This was a tough loss,” Coach Kayli Hurley said. “I had told the girls at the beginning of league that each game was going to be a dog fight, with the most efficient team coming out on top. This game proved that point.
"We started out well, but had a huge passing let up in the second game. After that it was difficult to rebound the momentum. Overall we did some great things, but we had too many unforced errors.”
Tori Wegdahl had 11 kills and Jem Dyer served 100 percent.
On Tuesday, the Mules faced Pe Ell at home and won in four games, 25-12, 23-25, 25-9, 25-16.
“We had a good team effort,” Coach Hurley said. “Though we had a lapse of mental focus in the second game with a lot of errors, we returned with fire and energy in the third. Pe Ell is a scrappy team. It was good to have that jump in the third and finish them in four.”
Maya Stanley served 100 percent, had 10 digs and passed an average of 2.3 out of 3.0. Baylee Olsen hit 0.583 with 15 kills and Kaylee Bryant had eight blocks and six kills.
They travel to Onalaska tonight (Thursday) to face the Loggerettes.
