There is nothing like a good victory to erase the frustration of a tough loss. Mount Hebron did just that yesterday, defeating host Glenelg, 15-9, 16-14, 15-7.
"I think it was really important that we won in three games," said Mount Hebron's Kerry Quinn, who ended the match with an impressive kill shot.
"After the loss to Centennial, when we got so close, we really needed this one to get back rolling again."
The No. 4 Vikings (9-2 overall, 8-2 league) lost a four-set match to No. 1 Centennial on Monday in which they had big leads in three games.
Against the No. 5 Gladiators (8-3, 7-3), Mount Hebron held onto leads in the first and third games and rallied from a 13-10 deficit to win the second.
"After the Centennial match, it was good to come back [in the second game] and win a close one," said Mount Hebron coach Henry Dahlan, whose team played without starting middle hitter Katie Coker because she turned her ankle Wednesday in practice.
Glenelg coach Marlene Janis said, "We played tentatively. There was no spark and there's no excuse for that, especially at home. We played not to lose rather then to win. We just didn't play well."
