26-28, 25-21, 25-18, 22-25, 15-13
The Audubon Wheelers were in a five-set battle against Tri-Center Thursday almost coming out victorious, but were just a few points shy.
Set one set the tone for the entire match as it went into extra points. Tri-Center held the early 4-2 lead until Audubon tied up the set at 5 points. The Wheelers were able to flip the script in their favor, holding a 17-13 lead until Tri-Center bounced back and tied up the set again at 20-20. Both teams went back and forth with the lead until Audubon was finally able to break a 26 all tie and win set one 28-26. Mattie Nielsen and Harlow Miller were two frontrunners for the Audubon offense with six and three kills respectively. Audubon spent the majority of set two behind Tri-Center as the Trojans got out to a 6-1 lead and kept their pace. It took Audubon nearly the entire set to get down one point at 20-21. Anna Larsen was a big help in that resurgence with five back-to-back ace serves. Tri-Center was able to use their height in the front row to their advantage and closed out set two with the 25-21 win.
The biggest set back Audubon had in this game was serve receiving, with plenty of them being over-passed and Tri-Center getting points off tips at the net. Set three was another victory for Tri-Center and they kept their distance well. They got off to a 5-1 lead to start the set and led by as much as six points throughout the set and eventually came away with the 25-18 set win to be up 2-1 in sets. Audubon needed set four to go their way to force a fifth set and they got the start they needed. They led by as much as 10-2 in the beginning parts of the set until Tri-Center got the scoring run they needed to tie up the set at 12-12. The Wheelers and Trojans bounced the lead back and forth for the remainder of the set until Audubon broke the cycle and took a 22-20 lead and eventually won 25-22 and forced a fifth set.
Addie Hocker in this contest did a good job of being in position to set the ball, coming away with 39 assists in the contest. Miller was able to come away with a solid game and 11 kills with Kylee Hartl led the team with 12 digs. In set five, both teams exhausted what energy they had left in another close set. Tri-Center got up 7-4 before Audubon bounced back and tied the set up at 8-8. Like in the previous set, both teams took time to tie up the set and take the lead. Tri-Center made some costly mistakes late that gave Audubon two points and some hope down 14-13. The Trojans got one final tip at the net that they needed to win the set 15-13 and win 3-2 in sets.
The loss drops Audubon to 6-7 overall on the season. They are in action this weekend on Saturday, September 17th when they compete in the Carroll tournament.
