Here's the recap of Pine City's match from Head Coach Kristin Unverzagt:
The Dragon Girls' came out ready to battle and won 6-1 over the Foley Falcons. The team battled hard and came ready to play. This was one of the most challenging matches for our team at each position so far this season. Ella Sell dictated the match and dominated coming off with our first point at 1 singles. First doubles followed suit, finishing shortly after with a strong win. This set the tone as our second doubles worked hard to come back and close out in a third set. Getting our fourth point in a tight battle with a second set tiebreaker was Lena Roubinek at 4th singles. She won the second set tie breaker with a score of 10-8. With this win, our team captured the match to allow the other points to finish strong and close out. Brooke Boland battled a tough match at 3 singles but fell short with a 5-7 loss in the second set. The final matches of the night were Addison Sell at 2 singles and Brenna Youngbauer/Malia Mikyska at 3 doubles. Both points worked hard to battle back, stay in the match, and finish strong. The doubles team had strong movement and dominated at the net to close the third set. Addison Sell exhibited patience as strength as she stuck her game plan and moved the ball and her opponent. I am so proud of this team and their efforts. They were focused, determined, and strong.
We head to Pierz on Thursday and host Little Falls next Tuesday to round out our conference matches.
