Rebels Shoot Down Eagles In Four Sets

The Dynamic Duo of Kyndra Pilant and Mady Winters recorded 26 kills, 21 blocks, 13 digs and 10 points, while Lenica Grimm dished out 31 assists. However it was not enough to get past the Ritchie County Lady Rebels in girls volleyball action on Oct. 11 inside the MHS HammerDome.

All four matches were nip-and-tuck in every set, with the Lady Rebels shooting down the Blue Eagles, 25-22, in an all-out shootout, while Magnolia soared above Ritchie in the second set, 19-25.

It took overtime for the Rebels to get by the Lady Eagles in the third set, 26-24, and then the Rebels took the Lady Eagles to the cleaners, 25-20, in the fourth set to win the hard-fought match between to sectional foes.

Besides the net attack by Pilant and Winters, and the assists by Grimm. The Eagles Kennedy Parsons and Ashley Kelly produced six points, four kills, and eight points, respectively, while Kayna and Via Anderson contributed seven points and five digs, and seven digs, respectively for the Blue Eagles.

Magnolia has played some outstanding volleyball teams in the past several days, and will tangle with several more top-notch teams down the stretch, to get ready for their second season in sectional, and hopefully regional and state competition in the next few weeks.

The Lady Eagles will play their final home games between Paden City, John Marshall and Valley on Oct. 25, 26 and 27, respectively, with junior varsity matches serving up at 5:30 p.m. in each match.
