Ram Nets Fade At Maroa

SHELBY COUNTY — Lady Ram volleyball challenged Maroa early, but then faded on Tuesday, losing 21-25, 9-25.

"We played, so hard the first game of the match," said Ram coach Lisa Peifer. "The game plan was going well and we were being pretty aggressive. A few miscommunications on out calls hurt us. Overall, it was a pretty well-played match by us."

Shelby lost game 1 by a respectable score, 25-21. But game 2, they were dismantled by the favorite for the conference title.

"The 2nd game was a completely different story," Coach Peifer said. "We were out of sorts early for some reason and unfortunately couldn't stop any of the weapons they came at us with. We have the ability to play with good teams, but we have trouble sustaining our consistency."

Brandy Smith led the Ram attack with half of the kills, six. The kill total was just 12. There was only 10 assists, split evenly by Lindsey Eigsti and Rachel Fox. Eigsti led the defenders with 6 of the 18 kills, by eight different Rams. 

Rachel Fox was far and away the leader from the line. She served nine points and five of them were aces.

Shelbyville (17-12, 7-3 Okaw) hosts Warrensburg on Thursday for Senior Night.

Maroa def. Shelbyville, 25-21, 25-9

Ram stats: Lindsey Eigsti 6 points, 1 kill, 5 assists, 6 digs; Claudia Watson 2 kills;  Rachel Fox 9 points, 5 aces, 1 dig; Madison Boone 4 points, 1 acts, 2 kills, 4 digs; Courtney Williams 3 points, 5 assists, 1 dig; Kelcie Darnell 5 points, 1 ace, 1 kill, 1 dig; Jensen Cloe 1 dig; Brandy Smith 3 points, 6 kills, 3 digs; Ryann Ambrose 1 block; Haley Eisenbarth 1 assist, 1 dig, 1 block.

While the varsity got knocked out, the JV and fresh-soph squads took care of business.

The JV blitzed in game 1, got into a battle in game 2, then won decisively in game 3, 25-10, 24-26, 15-7.

"The girls came out fired up and ready to play," said JV coach Jamie Watson. "Communication was a key in the first game. In game 2, we again came out strong and went up 11-1. Then, I made a few changes, which changed the chemistry of the team. In the 3rd game, we got our momentum back and were able to grab a great win!"
