Another Exciting Evening on the Road for the Patriots

The Patriots traveled to Richmond last night and all three teams played against Landmark.  We had great games from all three teams, but we were unable to bring home any wins. 

In the Varsity volleyball game, the girls started out a little slow, but gradually picked up the intensity as the game progressed.  The communication amongst the players was phenomenal!  We are happy to take steps of progress in different areas of the game even when we don’t win!  Final scores for the sets were 9-25, 12, 25, 16-25.  Great job, Lady Patriots!  Keep up the good work!

Out on the soccer field, the guys played a hard fought match.  During the first half, full back Adriel Ferrer dribbled the ball all the way up the field and crossed the ball so beautifully in front of the goal to assist Jacob Phillips in an amazing goal!  The guys continued to work hard to overcome the 2 goals that Landmark scored in the first half.  However, the second half did not yield any more goals for either team, leaving the final score 1-2 for a Landmark victory.  The guys keep continuing to improve, and we look forward to more close games in the future! 

The highlight of the evening came in the Ladies’ JV Volleyball Match!  The first game was pretty good with some good serves and passing from both teams.  The younger girls are learning to face some teams with older girls than we have and do so with a measure of courage and strength even in a 9-25 loss in the first set.  In the second set, the JV Ladies came from behind and took the lead, and then we started trading points back and forth making for a very close game.  Elizabeth Peterson and Carolyn Peters did a great job as the setters on the floor to assist some exciting kills from their JV teammates.  The girls fought hard and the crowd cheered loudly as the teams played past the 25 point mark.  In the end, the JV Lady Patriots lost a hard-fought set, but no one was hanging her head as everyone on the floor had done a great job in a 29-31 point loss in the second set.  Many of the spectators mentioned that this was the most exciting volleyball game they had ever watched!  Way to go, JV Lady Patriots!  Hard work in practice pays off in performance! 

Next games for the Patriots are scheduled at home against Victory Christian School.  Varsity volleyball and soccer begin at 4:00 and JV volleyball will begin shortly after the varsity match is complete.  Come on out and support your Patriots!  We look forward to seeing you there!

Varsity Volleyball Gets Another Win!

Last night, the varsity Lady Patriots travelled to Richmond and played Commonwealth at the Richmond Volleyball Club.  The girls were a little flat to start the game after being off for close to week with camp from last week, but they came back and won the game in three quick sets allowing the team to get on the road and make an early return to school.  We praise the Lord for safety in travel and look forward to our next varsity match on Friday at Landmark!

Score: 25-15, 25-17, 25-11

Pray for the JV Lady Patriots as we travel to Sweethaven this afternoon!

Tabernacle vs. Gill Grove

The soccer team took a long trip up to play Gill Grove this evening and brought home another win for the Patriots!

Score: TBA 2  Gill Grove 1

Matt McGary scored both the goals tonight for the Patriots.

Great to see our guys doing so well!  Thanks again for supporting your Patriots!  We have a few days off before our next game due to the evangelistic meetings at Tabernacle Baptist Church with the Herbsters Evangelistic Team.  Our next game is scheduled for Monday, September 17 on the road against Commonwealth.

TBA vs. Great Hope

The Patriots had a great night at our first away game at Great Hope tonight.  Both of the Varsity teams recorded their first wins and the JV volleyball team lost a very close match, but played very well.

Here are some of the details and scores from tonight’s games.

Soccer: Tabernacle 9 Great Hope 0

The guys did a great job tonight on the soccer field.  They spread the nine goals around the team with the following guys scoring a goal a piece: Adriel Ferrer, Gabe Ortiz, Abraham Phillips, David Parsons, Jacob Phillips, and Caleb James.  Matthew McGary scored the remaining three goals!  Way to go, fellas!  You make the Patriot fans proud!

Varsity Volleyball: Won in three straight sets! (25-12, 25-18, 25-15)

The girls played exceptionally well tonight.  The time spent in practice yesterday paid off and they recorded the first win of their season.  It’s been quite a few years since the Patriots have been able to beat Great Hope in volleyball.  Both teams enjoyed the fellowship and renewed friendships from the summer break.

JV Volleyball: Lost in three sets (25-21, 17-25, 15-17)

The JV girls are improving at every game and practice.  Even though they did not win tonight, every girl made an impact on the game and had a good attitude even in the loss.  We look forward to many more games this season and to some wins that we hope will be in the future.

Thanks again to all the fans who traveled to Great Hope to support us.  Having you all there cheering us on makes the playing time on the court and on the field so much more enjoyable!

Make sure to check out the blog in the near future for some team pictures and action shots from recent games.

The next game is a soccer match on the road at Gill Grove.  Pray for the team as they make the long trip on Tuesday and as they seek out their next win.

The soccer and volleyball teams played last night for their first game of the season. 

The volleyball team lost in three sets but had some great improvements in implementing their brand new offense.

The Scores: 18-25, 17-25, 22-25

Matt McGary scored the first goal of the game putting us up 1-0. The soccer team completed the first half of the game, but had to stop during the second half due to the lightning.

The Score: TBA 1 Bethel 3
