CAMERON — Boyceville traveled to Cameron on Saturday, September 21st for a day of volleyball matches. However, for the Bulldogs, the results of the tournament were less than stellar as they came up short in all four matches that they played.
Head coach Keri Peterson commented that the tournament in Cameron is traditionally a very competitive tournament with several ranked teams.
“Going in we knew we would have to play some of our best volleyball in order to compete,”said Peterson.
First up for the Bulldogs was Fall Creek. Peterson admitted that “Fall Creek was again just too much for us.” She went on to explain that they are a solid team who covered the court well and had a strong offense as well. “We just couldn’t get anything rolling and we got discouraged.” Final scores, Fall Creek 25-8 and 25-5.
Next up for the Lady Dawgs was Rice Lake, followed by the host, Cameron. In both of these matches, the Dawgs struggled in the first sets but were competitive in the second sets.
The problem though, according to Coach Peterson, was that the girls didn’t push themselves to get the win.
“We lacked the drive and fire to finish with a win,” noted Peterson who went on to say that, “it was disappointing because they were in our grasp and we let them slip away.”
Against Rice Lake, Boyceville lost 10-25 and 22-25. Versus Cameron, it was 13-25 and 23-25.
Although the Bulldogs also lost their last match of the tournament, 19-25 and 22-25, to Barron, coach Peterson was much happier with their performance.
She stated that they played their most competitive match of the day. “We passed the ball better in this match and were able to get some offense going, which was a better way to end the tournament.”
Boyceville was on the road Tuesday, September 24th when they headed to Buffalo country in Mondovi. They don’t play again until next Tuesday, October 1 when they host the Durand Panthers.
