Misenheimer, NC -- The Pfeiffer Lady Falcons soared over the Mt. Olive Trojan in a thrilling five game Conference Carolinas match on Sunday afternoon (14-25, 25-13, 21-25, 25-16, 15-13).
The Trojans took an early lead in game one and never looked back. Pfeiffer battled with strong defensive play by senior Morgan Liebert (Huntersville, NC), keeping the Falcons in the game. Mt. Olive held off the Falcon kept attacking hard throughout the game. Junior Racey Bartley (Jacksonville, NC) was the key play maker for the Trojans in this first game. Mt. Olive easily took game one 14-25.
Game two saw exciting play on both sides of the net. Each team forced long rallies and hustled to get every point. Pfeiffer took an early lead and doubled Mt. Olive’s score 12-6. Both teams tested each other by playing soft touches just short of the ten foot line. Pfeiffer senior Brittney Poole (Sparta, NC) kept her team safely in the lead with her quick digs. Bartley once again helped the Trojans keep the play competitive with her quality attacks and well-placed serves. The Falcons took game two 25-13.
The match was heating up by game three with Pfeiffer and Mt. Olive tied at one game apiece. The Trojans jumped up 5-2 with kills by Senior Kari Ham (Kinston, NC), but were not able to hold the lead for long. Pfeiffer tied the game at 9 with a huge kill from junior Brittany Dickens (Wake Forest, NC). The Falcons continued to rally back and forth with the Trojans, but would never take the lead in game three. The Trojan defense was led by the blocking of Kailey Preece (Vineland, Ontario) and Charmaine Harris (Wilson, NC) who worked the net well together shutting down Pfeiffer’s attacks. Mt. Olive won 21-25.
Game four saw the return of Pfeiffer senior Lauren Spiotta (Batavia, NY) who’s 6’0” frame was a strong asset for Pfeiffer’s blocking. Spiotta was previously benched due to injury. Dickens was the player to watch in the fourth set as she converted on almost all of her attacks. Despite a couple powerful kills by Trojan Alicia Mote (Miami, FL) the Falcons were able to force a fifth game by locking in the win 25-16.
The Falcons were able to transfer their momentum into game five and took the early lead 3-2. Mt. Olive was not done yet, keeping the game neck and neck to the finish.
