The Gaels played against the Broncos Tuesday night, and while it was a successful game, it was most definitely an eventful eventful, especially since there was a city wide power outage in the middle of the night. Saint Marys saw a five set game with a two set lead. First year Kristen Erland #5 made 5 kills in the first set. This was followed by another 5 kills in the second set by senior Chandler Cowell #19.
As said before, this was sure to be an eventful game because for the next couple of sets, the Broncos were not letting up on the Gaels. The third and fourth sets were met with multiple ties that the Broncos ended pulling through. However within the fifth set Jennifer “Boo” Laird #21 put up three kills and three block assists on her own. This set was ended with a winning ace by Ella Sandt #18. The game leaders were Chandler Cowell, Elena Baka #15, Kristen Erland, and Jennifer Laird.
Thursday night was another one to be watched. The gaels played against the Zags in quite an eventful game. There was a bit of a rough start to the first set but it was turned around to a 25-12 win. Laird had assisted the Gaels with two solo blocks. Although Saint Mary’s was close to a fifth set with Cowell and Laird leading the way with kills, Gonzaga pulled through with the final three points to win.
This game was especially impactful due to the fact that every set went to thirty, something that hadn’t been seen since 07.
