Volleyball: Troy subdues Folsom in five

A near carbon copy of Oak Ridge-Folsom girls Delta River League volleyball match from last month repeated itself Monday as the host Lady Trojans took a decisive 25-16, 25-12, 11-25, 22-25, 15-10 victory after Folsom battled back from down 2-0 to force the fifth set.

“We played very clean, textbook volleyball,” Oak Ridge coach Becky Potter said of the first two sets.

After a slow start by Troy, Mysha Davies’ cross-court kill and a powerful ace by Amelia Crye energized Oak Ridge en route to the first set win. In the second set, a Tara McDermott ace and Emily DeMure kill staked the Lady Trojans out to a 9-1 lead and they never looked back. A Rachael McVicar kill late iced the set as Oak Ridge had control.

Folsom battled back as it did before. A Shannon Rich block and poor execution by the Trojans gave the visiting Bulldogs a 12-2 lead in a set they easily won. Oak Ridge attempted to close out the Bulldogs in the fourth set but the combination of Rich and Troy’s lack of composure sent the match to the fifth set.

Four consectitive points from Hayley Corell gave Oak Ridge a 7-0 lead, and after allowing Folsom to get within four, McVicar finished it off with a kill to secure the victory.

“We still aren’t mentally tough,” Potter said. “Great teams win in three sets. We aren’t a great team.”
