Trouble At Home For Lady Redskins

Posted

The Nokomis Lady Redskins had the home court advantage Tuesday night, Sept. 10, as they hosted the Metro-East Lutheran Lady Knights. 

The Skins were still looking to gain their first win of the season, getting extremely tired of defeat. The Knights put the Lady Redskins away early in the first set of the night, 25-10, due to lack of communication and unforced errors on the Skin’s side of the net. 

In the second set of the night, the Skins decided to finally come alive and play the way they knew they could. With determination and growing confidence, the ladies captured the second set by a 25-23 final score.

The third and final set of the night, the Lady Redskins dug themselves a hole that they could not get out of, causing the Knights to take the third set 25-16.

Point-wise, Mia Fesser added nine points, two aces, and ten assists. Sophia Keller helped out with one ace and four points. Delaney Keiser added five points. In the kill department, Ellee Waterman, Presley Lamb and Jade Jett had three each  and Macee Eisenbarth had five.

The Lady Redskins have a busy weekend in front of them as they host part of the Montgomery County Invitational.

Nokomis will take on Calvary at 4:45 p.m., Roxana at 6:45 p.m. and Auburn at 8:45 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 13. On Saturday, the top two teams in each of the four pools will play in two brackets at Lincolnwood, while the bottom two teams will play in two brackets in Nokomis.
