Shelby Manhandles Meridian

The Shelbyville Lady Rams brought the homecoming heat on Thursday and manhandled visiting Meridian in staright games, 25-18, 25-15.

"This was one of the most complete matches we've played," said Ram coach Lisa Peifer. "The few lapses we had were stopped quickly and we got a great match out of Brandy (Smith). They couldn't stop her and our setters were pretty smart in dishing out the ball.

"One of the biggest differences between us was the pass off service. We were consistent, which allowed us to side out. We also frustrated them on the block, which was nice. It was a great way to end homecoming week. We had a big crowd and they saw a good win."

Shelbyville knocked off Neoga on Monday, clobbered Clinton and now munched Meridian all on homecoming week.

After the Shelby JV took care of business in two games, Thursday, the varsity Lady Rams went two steps forward, one step back, building a 7-point lead and holding it until the final point of game 1.

In game 2, Shelby fell behind early, caught up and battled back and forth until Courtney Williams went on a 9-point service run. With that cushion it was more back and forth until Shelby was on the threshold of match point. They finished with a 3-point flurry to get the win.

Lindsey Eigsti served the Rams to a 3-0 lead in game 1, including a Madison Boone block for a point. Meridian cut the lead to 4-3 Rams, before hitting out.

Boone went to the line and served an ace and Shelby was called in the net, 7-4. Shelby missed a kill, Meridian served an ace and a cross-court kill wasn't covered, making it a 1-point game, 8-7 Rams.

Meridian missed a free ball opportunity and gave Kelcie darnell the serve. Claudia "Lefty" Watson fired a 1-timer for a quick kill, then rachel Fox tipped for a point. Darnell delivered an ace and Meridian called time-out, down 12-7.
