Rams Step On Shoes

SHELBYVILLE, IL. — Shelbyville volleyball defended their home court to open Shelbyville 2A Regional play on Monday night, notching their 20th win as the handled Teutopolis, 25-16, 25-14.

“I am glad to get this one out of the way,” said Ram coach Lisa Peifer. “Being a Monday, I thought we started a little sluggish. We weren’t transitioning very well and it put us in the position where we made too many errors. I’m not sure the girls ever felt that they didn’t have control, so we were content to just play. We did play solid enough to win, but will have to turn the intensity up a notch against Pana.”

The Lady Rams opened the match with Taylor Wilcox serving six straight points, including two early kills by Brandy Smith, and forcing an early T'town time-out.

Madison Boone killed off a block to put Shelby up 7-1 and Smith delivered an ace to go 9-2. Brooke Eisenbarth rocketed a shot across the net and the Shoe dig ricocheted a free ball to the net were Boone could slam it to the floor, 10-3.

Eisenbarth sizzled another kill on the back line to fuel another 5-point Ram run. Lindsey Eigsti kept serving as Wilcox killed through a block, Eisenbarth tipped a point, and then followed with a BK Whopper to the corner. Teutopolis had to call their second time-out, down 15-4.

At 16-6, the resilient Shoes had their own 5-point run, bringing a Ram time-out.

Wilcox broke the run with a tip and Smith swung for a kill for a 19-11 lead.

Back and forth inched the Rams closer to winning game 1. At 23-16, Eisenbarth sent another BK Special missile down the line. Eigsti served game point and Teutopolis hit it out.

After the Ram dominance in game 1, game to began as a closer affair. The two teams tied at 2-2, 3-3, 4-4, and 5-5.

Sammy Hendrix served a short ace to break the tie. Hendrix served a 7-point run. Eisenbarth had a free kill and Hendrix served another short ace for an 11-5 lead, forcing a Shoe time-out.

Eisenbarth blasted a kill cross-court and gave Eigsti the ball at the line again. Eisenbarth killed again, then Wilcox blew the ball through a Shoe block.

At 15-8, Wilcox had a lefty tip that fooled the Shoes. Wilcox got the serve at 17-10 and Boone had another block. After a Shoe tip miss, they had to call time again, 20-10.

At 23-14, Eisenbarth rocketed a kill again. On match point, Wilcox delivered an ace that ricocheted into the crowd, 25-14.

Hendrix and Smith followed Eisenbarth with four digs each and Maggie Bosgraaf dug three.
