The End of the Varsity Regular Season

Last night marked the end of the regular season games for the Patriots in Varsity Volleyball and Soccer.  Both teams finished with exciting wins to send them into the ODACS playoffs.

The soccer guys were thankful that the early morning rain stopped so they could play.  Thankfully the field dried out a little bit before their 4:00 start.  The Patriots recorded a resounding victory with a score of 8-0.  Multiple players scored one goal including David Parsons, Matthew McGary, Adriel Ferrer, and Noah Wells.  Jacob Phillips and Gabe Ortiz scored two goals each in the shut-out.  The Soldiers from Great Hope did a great job and worked hard right along side our Patriots.  Congratulations to the guys on their victory!

The Varsity Volleyball team played a hard-fought match that went out to the full five sets for the first time this season.  All of the girls contributed to the win over the five sets.  It was an extremely exciting game to watch!  The girls lost the first set 18-25.  Then they won the second and third sets 25-17 and 25-16.  They fell short in the fourth set with a score of 17-25 which forced a fifth and deciding set.  The Lady Patriots rose to the challenge and won by a 15-8 margin.  Briana Chavez had a serving run that really got the girls going in the second set!  Great job, Lady Patriots!

The JV Lady Patriots also played last night.  They were so close in the first set, but fell short by two points leaving the score 23-25.  The second set was a little tougher for the Lady Patriots, but each girl gave her best and honored the Lord even in a loss.  There were some great volleys between the teams in both sets, which proves that all the JV girls are improving in their skills. 

The JV Lady Patriots have their final game on Thursday here at Tabernacle against Sweethaven with game time at 4:00.  Come cheer on the JV Lady Patriots as they finish their season!

We now await the ODACS standings for the soccer and volleyball tournaments.  We will keep you posted as to where each team falls and for the games that will be scheduled for the end of next week.  Come out and cheer on the teams as we seek to advance in these playoff rounds.

Busy Week for the Patriots!

On Tuesday, the Patriots started out the week with varsity soccer and volleyball games across town against Gateway. The soccer team worked hard and played a good game, but the final score left Gateway winning 4-0.

The volleyball team played a great game with marked improvement after Friday night’s tough loss. The girls had good team work and fought hard but lost in three sets. Final scores were as follows: 14-25, 15-25, 15-25.

 

Thursday night, the Varsity volleyball team played Commonwealth. Each girl got some playing time and all contributed to the victory. Feeling the absence of a couple of the starters, the team fought through a few rough patches. Elizabeth Peterson, the back-up setter, took charge and led the team to a much-needed victory!  Final scores for the sets were 25-22, 25-21, 26-28, 25-18.

Please join us at home on Friday night as all three teams compete against Landmark. Wear pink and help us honor all those who have fought their battle with breast cancer. Games start at 4:30!  See you there!
