Shelby Survives Neoga

Neoga is in a cat fight for 3rd in the NTC, behind St. Anthony and Altamont. They came into Shelbyville on Monday to try and knock off the Lady Rams. Although Neoga was not-so ready for that challenge, they proved why they are in contention in their conference. Shelby survived, 25-18, 25-23.

"We jumped on Neoga early and kind of cruised to the 1st game win," said Ram coach Lisa Peifer.

Following her 19 kill performance last week. Maddy Boone led the Rams at the net again with eight of the Rams 26 kill total. Courtny Williams was tops at the service line with 13 points and Lindsey Eigsti dished 13 of the team's 19 assists.

"The lack of intensity worried me and rightfully so, as we found ourselves down 9-17 in game 2. We were a little sluggish with our arm swings and had too many errors into the net on our attack."

Brandy Smith had a solid all-around game as did Williams. Smith served nine points, had five kills among the seven different Rams who split 26 kills. She also had three digs and one of the two blocks.

"We finally got some good swings and served pretty aggressively to force some overhangs we were able to take advantage of."

The Ram defense was a collective effort with 19 digs. Rachel Fox and Williams led the effort with four digs each. Smith and Kelcie Darnell added net defense with one block each. Darnell also scored the only Ram ace.
