Neah Kah Nie Volleyball hosted county rivals Nestucca last night in an early league match up.
Nestucca came out strong, taking an early lead against the Pirates. The Bobcats experience playing together showed. The team had played 6 games together prior to last night's match up. What didn't show, was signs of fatigue from playing the day before.
Nestucca dominated the first two sets, 25-16, 25-12. The Pirates weren't going to go down without a fight, though. With support from the crowd, the Pirates were able to test the confident Bobcats. The third set proved to not be an easy win for the Bobcats like the previous two sets. The score remained close, unlike the previous two, as Neah Kah Nie battled to stay alive.
Unfortunately, the Bobcats were able to pull away, winning the third set, clinching victory for the match up. Neah Kah Nie will get their chance to get revenge at the end of the month when they travel to Cloverdale to take on the Bobcats.
Both teams will be busy this weekend as they are both involved in local tournaments. Neah Kah Nie will be hosting a tournament at home, while Nestucca will be traveling to Molalla.
