Clovers drop one to Bruins in four games

Saturday, October 11, 2008

LIZTON -- The Cloverdale volleyball team fell in four games at Tri-West Thursday night, 25-16, 25-17, 21-25, 25-21. The loss moves the Clovers to 14-7.

After the loss, Clover coach Kathy Moore gave Tri-West credit for its strong team.

"This was a very good Tri-West team--the best they've had in a few years," Moore said. "We had trouble stopping their middle tonight; she played well for them. I felt we made some adjustments in the third and fourth games that allowed us to score more effectively."

Allie Franklin led Clover servers with 13 points and two aces. Alesha Evans also had a pair of aces.

Kristin McCammon had eight kills and 16 digs. Elizabeth Cheatham had 15 blocks, while Maria Skiles had eight assists.

In spite of the loss, Moore likes to see her team challenged at this time of year.

"It is good to see some tough opponents toward the end of the regular season," Moore said. "It sharpens your skills and helps you work toward peaking at the right time."

The Clover JV lost in two games, 25-16. 25-18.

The CHS varsity is back in action at 9 a.m. today at the Cascade Invitational.
