A dominating effort by the College of the Siskiyous volleyball team in their home gym resulted in a 3-0 win over the Redwoods Corsairs last Wednesday, 25-15, 25-4 and 25-14.
The Corsairs were just out played and over matched by their opponent. COS scored at will and got several easy points off mistakes. It went as far as the players were joking around and laughing.
“[Redwoods] wasn’t ready for the task of at hand,” COS coach Tom Powers said after the game. “This was a good warmup match for this week.”
Powers’ goal last week was to limit scoring runs by his opponent. The Corsairs longest run was three. Instead, it was COS who had some long runs.
The Eagles jumped out to a seven point lead in the first game before hitting the ball out to give the Redwoods their first point. The Redwoods would have three tips for points closing the gap to 10-4. Laura McMahon had three kills in the game, including on the final point.
The Corsairs tied game two at 1-1 and that’s the closest they would get. The Eagles went on a 15-0 run. McMahon had three kills and Amber Franko had two in the run. The only thing that stopped COS was a serve into the net. The only points for the Corsairs came off a kill and three serving errors by COS.
Game three was a replica of game one. The Corsairs made mistakes, giving easy points to the Eagles and allowing them to score at their leisure. Not one player contributed to the win for the Eagles. Brie Melton and Katie Zauner had a couple aces. Megan McMahon added two kills, including the match winner.
Zauner led the team with six kills and Laura McMahon had five. Stephanie Batchelder only played two games but kept with her average of approximately seven with 13 assists.
COS continues its five game homestand against Butte on Wednesday and then hopes to avenge an earlier loss to Feather River College.
