Lady Gators top Green Wave, fall to undefeated Terrors in NTL volleyball action

In what head coach Sharon Daniels’s e-mail described as “quite the exciting week,” the Port Allegany volleyball team split a pair of five-set matches against the North Tier League’s top two teams, upsetting Oswayo Valley on Tuesday before falling to undefeated Otto-Eldred two nights later.

At Port Allegany, Oct 20th: Port A 3, Oswayo Valley 2 (25-21, 25-14, 22-25, 22-25, 15-11)
Individual stats:
Becky Andrus: 18 digs
Jenny Shelley:  18 service points, 2 kills, 25 assists, 7 digs
Alyssa Bowser:  7 service points, 5 blocks, 8 kills, 17 digs
Renee Edgell: 14 kills
Kyley Mickle: 2 blocks, 3 kills, 16 assists, 9 service points
Kelsey Pistner: 5 service points, 9 kills, 17 digs
Rachel Taylor: 2 blocks, 10 kills

“Both teams came to play and it was definitely a crowd pleaser with a
combination of 48 kills for the Lady Gators,” Daniels said.

At Port Allegany, October 22: Otto-Eldred 3, Port A 2 (19-25, 25-18, 25-22, 17-25, 15-12)
Individual Stats:
Becky Andrus: 15 digs and 13 service points
Jenny Shelley: 10 service points, 2 kills, 17 assists

Kelsey Pistner: 6 kills, 2 blocks and 8 digs
Renee Edgell: 13 kills
Rachel Taylor: 8 kills, 2 blocks and 11 service pts/4 aces

“We came right out in the last game and took an early lead only to watch it slip away to an 8-4 O-E lead. We then had to play catch-up for the remainder of the game,” Daniels explained. “The score was 9-14 and we dug in and played hard enough to get our score to 12. O-E has a nice ball team.”

Now 7-8 (6-6 NTL), the Lady Gators conclude the regular season this week with Tuesday’s trip to Coudersport before the Senior Night home finale against Northern Potter on Thursday evening.
