Chelan loses to Kings in three
By Richard Uhlhorn
Chelan started their second round of volleyball against the number 2 ranked team in 1A Volleyball, Kings and found themselves down 0-12 before Izzy Barth tipped the ball into the center court for Chelan's first service change.
The Lady Goats actually played well in game one, but couldn't stop the awesome front line of Kings and ended up losing this game 7-25.
As they have all year, Chelan regrouped in game two and took Kings to the wire in a 21-25 game where Chelan played with Kings, but in the end found themselves on the losing end of this game also.
During one timeout, I heard the Kings coach, Steve Bain, tell his girls to not "freak out. We're losing points on tips to the middle.
Just watch for them. Come on... push, push, push." In game three, neither Chelan or Kings could get the upper hand. Kings finally won this game also 22-25, moving into the semi-final match against the winner of the Colfax-Cedar Crest match taking place on court 1.
Chelan moves to the the consolation round at 2 p.m. against the loser of Colfax-Cedar Crest.
Lots more action to report and photograph as we go through the day.
