The Brandon-Evansville volleyball team had its season end at the hands of second-seeded Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley on Friday night in the Section 6A South Tournament.
The third-seeded Chargers (18-8) had beaten CGB in a weekend tournament earlier this season, but the Wolverines (24-4) jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the playoffs with back-to-back 25-15 wins. The Chargers got one back with a 25-18 win in the third, but CGB put the match away with a 25-16 win in the fourth set.
“To get the win, we would have to win the serve and receive game,” B-E head coach Kelly Olson said. “We had times when our receive game was really good, and other times when it was not so good. It really comes down to if we could be more consistent passing out of serve receive. All night it was either perfect or it was us free balling the ball over. That is a tough way to play.”
Olson said the Chargers’ passing game got back to where it needed to be in the third set.
“Even in the fourth set, we were doing a good job and then it went away again,” Olson said. “We had our chances to stay in the match. We had momentum, but CGB capitalized on our mistakes. The kids played hard. We just didn’t have it tonight.”
Bailey Schaefer had a team-high 18 kills for the Chargers, and Mikenna Pattrin added 12. Kristen Kokett finished with 18 digs, and Korrie Randt had 31 assists.
