GLENWOOD - In another match away from home, the Lady Pirates faced Trout Lake-Glenwood this past Friday night, battling it at the net through four games.
Each of the hard fought four games was close in points, however the Glenwood-Trout Lake girls earned the 25-21, 21-25, 25-23, 25-21 victory against Bickleton High School.
"We played good at times and not so good at times. The games, as you can see, were all very close," said Bickleton volleyball Coach Tom Whitmore.
He credited Johanna Jensen, Ilsa Chapple and Morgan McBride for good serving at times.
"Katelynn Clinton played well at the net with five kills and four assists," said Whitmore.
Another five kills were earned by Chapple.
He said there were struggles for the Lady Pirates, however momentum and scoring runs occurred at various points in each of the four games.
Whitmore said it was unfortunate that the Bickleton team did lose McBride due to a knee injury in the third game. "The injury happened at a critical time of the game and was a bit distracting for the team," he added.
"We still don't know the extent of her injuries," Whitmore said Friday night.
Whitmore said the young player was taken from the game to the hospital by her mother.
The second half of the Lady Pirates' season begins against Sunnyside Christian High School in Bickleton Tuesday night.
Whitmore said he is hoping the team will improve its play enough to get in some wins.
Their record dropped to 0-4, 2-5 overall with Friday night's loss.
