ORCS loses to North Star 3-0
On Tuesday evening, Our Redeemer’s Christian School was back on its home court for a match with the visiting North Star Bearcats.
The first set was a tightly contested affair at the outset, but eventually the Knights started to fall behind. ORCS trailed by a tally of 12-8, but remained competitive throughout the set.
With Our Redeemer’s down 24-19, North Star recorded the set clinching point on a serve that touched the net and counted as an ace. The Bearcats would go on to take the second and third sets by respective scores of 25-15 and 25-20.
Offensively, ORCS had good balance as Cheyenne Lang each totaled 10 kills. However, the Our Redeemer’s defense had trouble containing North Star senior Danielle Hagler who led all players with 22 kills on the night. Fellow upperclassman Lindsey Nyhagen also made an impact offensively for the Bearcats with a game-high 27 assists. Meanwhile, Eden Olson had 19 assists and 17 digs for the Knights to lead the club in both categories in defeat.
Our Redeemer’s will look to turn the page Thursday night when they travel to Mohall to take on the Mavericks at 7 p.m. Meanwhile, North Star will play its next game at home against Four Winds/Minnewaukan also on Thursday evening at 7.
